Cut Blacktop

I need to cut a hole in my driveway to sink a 4x4 post for a railing. How can I make a nice clean cut. I dont have a demo saw. Can I buy a blade for my circ saw? Like a concrete blade? thanks

Cut Blacktop

I have used concrete blades (diamond) in a circ saw and in an angle grinder to cut asphalt a few times.

Cut Blacktop

You can put a blade on your circular saw, I hope you don't like the saw to much, it is going to get really dusty and dirty and a pain to clean. Borrow your neighbors if you can!!! Mini grinders are easier to clean up or perhaps rent a saw and blade (12-14") from a local rental center.
