Chasing is a quick and efficient method for cutting neat channels in brick or concrete, up to a depth of 100mm, commonly used where chases are required for conduits and pipe work associated with the Mechanical and Electrical trades. Useful in occupied areas as the works are dust controlled by attaching a dust extraction unit.

Chasing work is undertaken using an 110V 9" grinder with blade attached. Chases are marked up prior to commencement of works. The operator then cuts two slots to the required depth and then removes the centre of the channel using a lightweight hand held breaker to form the chase. By using a dust extraction unit attached to the machinery, chasing work is carried out cleanly, preventing dust reaching other trades working in the vicinity and protecting the area from dust contamination.
