Curb Sawing vs. Curb Excavation 

Curb Sawing

Curb sawing may eliminate the need for curb excavation. Here’s what you need to know about these two methods of curb removal.

What is curb sawing?

Curb sawing is typically completed by a track-mounted hydraulic saw. This piece of equipment can rotate 180 degrees and has blades that can be adjusted to meet different heights and angles. It aims to cut curbs or parapet walls flush to the road, eliminating the need for curb excavation. 

Such a system can be used for installing new driveways, driveway approaches, or handicap ramps. It also creates proper angle cuts.

Curb sawing can also be completed with ride-on curb machines. These powerful hydraulic systems are designed to cut thousands of feet of curb a day, making this the perfect equipment for road or bridgework or any other project requiring large volumes of curb, parapet, barrier walls, or medians to be removed. 

What is curb excavation?

Curb excavation is typically done with a backhoe or excavator. It typically requires two workers, as a second set of eyes may be needed to assist with the vertical and horizontal control of the machinery.

Curb sawing vs. curb excavation

Curb saws eliminate the need for concrete demolition. Curb sawing is faster and easier than curb excavation. It can be used for all types of curbs without damaging the adjacent curb structure or road. Curb saws may also be less expensive than curb excavation. 

However, it’s worth noting that you need to check with your local government to see if curb cutting is permissible. A few cities prefer completely removing the curb, followed by repouring the curb.
