The groove would only be like 1/4 deep or so. I need to run
a peice of wire for my underground dog fence across the driveway.
Could I just use a circular saw and carbide blade, or do I need to
rent one of those big quickie saw type deals??
Thanks for the help

For the rental price you could buy a Chinese diamond blade for your saw. Got
one at Menard's some months ago for around $10 IIRC. Real handy for light duty
brick and block work. Out of respect for the saw bearings extensive use shouild
be restricted. HTH
You need a diamond, not carbide tipped saw for cutting concrete. Lots of
water helps with the cooling, and keeping the blade from frying.
A 14" gas powered saw would make quick work of it, and may not be that
much more to rent than purchasing a 7" diamond blade.
I'd have to agree with the pvc tunneling idea. I did this for my
sprinker system and it worked great. You can buy the nozzle head that
you attach to the pvc pipe in the sprinker section of any home
This also saves you the hassle of having to patch over the driveway
after you lay down the wire.
Tunneling under an expansion joint is recommended to prevent cracks
from forming from voids that your tunnel caused.
Hope this helps.
