    What options are available for gas powered saws? Also, do you find that you have to replace the pull rope on your brick saw much more frequently than other machines? It must be the concrete dust.

    Buy an EDCO saw and they'll sell you a vacuum.

    Yes the dust dries out the ropes. And eats piston rings on the engines. We get about 2 years out of a Honda.

    Also, all the dust in the air will cause build up of wax and dirt combined inside your ears. Usually about the size of a pea.

    Does Edco sell stand alone vac systems?

    I just checked out their website. There are some innovative features on the vac. How complete is it at eliminating dust.
