Cutting block

Quick and easy questinon for the pros out there. What do you use to cut block foundation for installing an egress window? I used a quickie saw when I cut the slab to redo/rough in plumbing in the basement which worked very well and would be nice but that will only go 4.5" deep. Wonder if there is a miracle saw that will cut all the way through or if Im going to have to cut from both sides.

Cutting block

Concrete saw cut from both sides is the only way that I've ever done it... Try posting over in the masonry forum as well, maybe there is some special tool that those guys know about.
