There's also a chain saw made just for this.

Cutting concrete foundations


call up some foundation companies and builders and ask who do they use to cut concrete. it is usually best to hire that out since they have the equipment and more importantly the know how ..... someone experienced can make it look simple to do

Cutting concrete foundations


We start with a standard diamond blade in a 14" gas cut-off saw, step the blade up to a "fat blade" to compensate for teh wide chain width, and then to a wet-cut chainsaw to finish the cut off. The chainsaw allows you to cut square corners w/o overcutting, keep nice straight cuts/jambs, and keep most of the mess/fumes on the exterior.

Some companies also use wall mounted as well.
