The main safety feature of the Hydraulic Cut Off Saw is the blade guard. When the handle is open, the guard covers the spinning blade to protect the user.
As the handle is pushed towards the blade, the guard drops away to cut the hose. (As pictured).
The other main safety feature is the pin system for holding the hose in place. The Operator then has both hands free to operate the Cut Off Saw.
Note the blade guard is closed.
Note the blade guard on the handle is covering the exposed blade.
