The big brother to Wachs DW Guillotine® 208 diamond wire saw, the DWG 416 is designed for cutting 4 inch to 16 inch (DN100-400) pipe including steel, ductile, cast iron, concrete (CA), poly, PVC and mixed media. The DWG 416 features exceptional build quality, with stainless steel and aluminum construction for corrosion resistance, and a collapsible, folding arm design that allows it to be easily transported and stored.

Like all Wachs cutting solutions, the DWG 416 is secured to the pipe by a quick, secure chain mounting system, eliminating the danger of kickback accidents due to binding from pipe shifting or compression cuts. Hydraulically powered using a sealed loop, the DWG 416 can operate under the most extreme conditions, including full water immersion, and is ideal for cutting in restrictive spaces.

The DWG series diamond wire is long lasting, giving the DWG 416 one of the lowest costs per cut in the industry. Like the smaller DWG 208, it utilizes a fully enclosed, high speed diamond infused cutting wire that rotates radially while cutting, allowing all the diamond elements to come into contact with the workpiece.  Apart from the safety advantages, the lower cost of consumables over the life of the machine compared to handheld devices will offset its higher initial cost.

Top mounted controls for wire speed and feed allow the operator to select the optimum settings for a quick, clean cut.
