Return to Sawing Page

Close up of the RoboCrane carrying a chainsaw attached to a leaf spring and is being controlled to cut an oak log.  The white pipe simulates a chimney placed over an oil well to allow flames to escape through the top and workers to access the well at the bottom to cap it.  The saw could be cutting away concrete or other materials instead of a wooden log.
