Hello everyone, i'm Richard and a newbie in DIY stuff.

I have a question about cutting aac/ytong blocks.
Let's just say i have a problem with handsaw and cutting straight with it.
What can i use to cut 60x20x10 aac blocks into 15-16pieces of 4x20x10?
If you guys have to choose, which one will you go for? 10" sliding miter saw or 10" table saw?
Or can you guys recommend me which electrical saw to use?

Thanks!

I had to look that one up, I have never used AAC but it does sound like a good product. I thought it was a new product but they say it has been around for 70 years. I must have been living under a rock.

Looks like the dust would be hard on the brushes in any electrical saw.

I would suggest what ever you used that is electric, put a filter on the air intake of the tool to keep that dust out of it. I really don't know what to suggest as I don't know what tools you have. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Brittle is good. Before buying any expensive tools, I would try scoring the block all around the cut lines with a knife, and then tapping it with a wide chisel or maybe an old lawn mower blade (no dust).
