Electric tools, as we all know, have been around for quite a while, but they have made a big push in the past years because of the advancements in both electric engines and batteries. While you may be hard-pressed to look for a concrete saw that makes use of battery, there are some corded electric models that are worth your consideration.
The corded electric models do tend to be way lighter than the gas-powered models. They do not come with a fuel tank, and they also cut down on both weight and bulk, and the electric engine itself is quite compact and it also weighs much less.
While it may seem hard to find a heavy-duty concrete saw that has a weight that is less than 20 pounds, you would often find electric models that come in weights that are less than 10 pounds, and what this means is that they could weigh as little as one-third as much as an equivalent gas-powered model.
These ones do not also create any kind of emissions, meaning that they are much better for our environment and they are also better for people that are very sensitive to the fumes that are produced by gas.
Since they do not have any parts that move, they require very little maintenance, and because of this, they break down very less often, and what this also means is that they can be a less frustrating model in the long run. Although, you do have to keep in mind that these models need an electric outlet, so, you will need to have access to a power supply in order for you to be able to use them.
The gas-powered models are the winners when it comes to their portability. While they weigh more, they do not make use of any power cord, and this means that they are good for situations where you will not have an easy access to power supply.
