Dry Cutting Pavers

Quick Question I was told that dry cutting pavers is illegal and you could get fined up too 5000 for doing it. so my question is what is the legal way of cutting Pavers with a demp saw ?? hooking up the hose to it ?? when cutting your border this seems that it could be very messy ?? Thanks for your Help

Most of our cuts are dry.

I don't know if there are laws about sitting dry, I do know that it has been talked about for a while.

it is illegal in a way.

OSHA frowns on cutting concrete dry without the use of a respirator. i think the type called for per OSHA is n-95?

so technically speaking if you are cutting dry with no respirator and OSHA walks up yes it can be a hefty fine.

we will use a leaf blower to keep the dust clear if we don't have a good wind.

We have hose hookups on our table top wet saws and also our demo saws. its kinda messy, but it deff. keeps the dust to zero. It also is a little more proffessional (esp. in a residential setting) to have a no dust. Rather than coating the whole block with a nice cloud of concrete dust!

Not so sure I agree with the blade warming the water. The water would have to be contained to the blade for an extended period of time for the blade to heat it up. The blade propels the water away in split seconds

eh, i dunno, it feels warmer. could be an illusion, since the minute ya walk away from the saw the wind makes it colder out.
