Alpha® is excited to introduce a new electric stone cutter, called the ESC-150, which is equipped with a powerful motor capable cutting 1-1/4” (3cm) stone slabs in one pass.
In addition, Alpha® recognized the need for a quality electric portable stone cutter that is capable of miter cutting of 1-1/4” (3cm) materials with ease, so that any stone fabricator can use it when miter cuts are required, without the time-consuming setup.
Also, it is great for sink-hole cutting and groove-cutting for rodding applications. The ESC-150 includes a kink-free water hose for improved maneuverability of the stone cutter. The flexibility of the hose helps reduce operator fatigue and improves the operation.
The Alpha® ESC-150 comes with a built-in dust gate making it dustless when connected to a HEPA vacuum. It can utilize a variety of consumables including the Alpha® Katana 6” for porcelain panels and slabs, Hot-Rod 4” for 1/4” steel rods and 1/8” fiber glass rods. For marble applications, a Libero 5” blade is recommended since most marble slabs are 3/4” (2cm) thick or less. Alpha® offers a carriage assembly that fits on the Alpha® Guide Rail System to support the application of making precise miter cuts for the perfect lamination.

Answer : You need to use HEPA Vacuum according to OSHA’s Table 1. Please see link below for details. https://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=STANDARDS&p_id=1270
Question : What is the warranty on the ESC-150?
Answer : One year warranty (See manual for details)
Question : How can I get the parts list and schematic for the ESC-150?
Answer : Visit Alpha’s® website at www.alpha-tools.com or call Alpha® at 800-648-7229.
Question : Can I use the ASC-5CSM Carriage Assembly on the ESC-150?
Answer : No, you cannot use the ASC-5CSM Universal Carriage System due to the fact it is designed for ESC-125 which is a 5” stone cutter. The ESC-150 requires a larger carriage which is the ASC-6CSM.
Question : Why does the ESC-150 come with two locations for the anti-vibration side handle?
Answer : Alpha® provided two positional locations for the side handle for user comfort and stability during the cutting applications.
Question : When I use as a dry cutting application, dust breaches from the bottom of the stone. How can I prevent dust issue?
Answer : When a diamond blade cuts through the stone, dust will be kicked out from the bottom of the slab before it comes up to the surface of slab. You can put a substrate such as another stone slab or Styrofoam sheet to encapsulate the edge of diamond blade so that dust would be kicked up toward the point of a dust suction.
