Tac-Up BV – Tactical Chainsaw

Tactical Chainsaw

Tac-Up BV is a company based in the Netherlands formed by ex-SOF and SWAT personnel. They’ve developed the Tacical Chainsaw, a powerful and versatile breaching tool which can cut through a wide range of materials including armored glass, steel, stone, and more. The Tactical Chainsaw uses a special chain with a Wolfram carbide hard metal coating, and the blade can be adjusted with an included depth limiter. Also included with the Tactical Chainsaw is a tactical light, heavy duty protection plate, and a non-reflecting “urban grey” coating. Check out the video below to see the Tactical Chainsaw in action.

Tac-Up BV will be visiting SHOT Show this year, so stay tuned for further coverage of the Tactical Chainsaw from the show floor.

    ”Urban Grey” isn’t going to make much of a difference when they hear the thing running, nice of them to cover the sound with music so you can’t hear anything

    Need one for the impending zombie apocalypse.

    I don’t think anyone was trying to suggest that this chainsaw operates in “stealth mode” because it comes in a subdued color.

    However the color would be helpful if you are trying to approach a target without being detected prematurely.

    As mentioned in the post this item is meant for the military / SWAT user.

    And therefore would most likely be employed by one member of a team while others provide security.

    Ever try to buck a large maple or hickory tree? You guys argue over the color. Just give me that carbide coated chain. I figure one of those is worth a half dozen for the Stihl.

    • Terry B. says:

      I agree. I could use a chain like that for my Stihl.

      However, I suspect the price of the chain alone equals 10 new chainsaws.

      So I probably won’t be getting one for here on the farm.

      It’d be nice though.

    I dig it. Ever have to hump around a quick cut saw? Not all that fun, especially with rest of the breaching kit. If this thing saves 5 pounds over the quick- cut , definitely worth it.

  6. JJ says:

    I dig the depth limiter.

    What, no zombie testing. If it can’t do zombies, I don’t want it!

    That’s the manliest thing I’ve seen all day. I have absolutely no practical use for this, but I want one.
