Answer: 
With the right blade there is no reason why not. It is made for that type of work by the way. I love using a water hose attached which greatly reduces the dust and speeds up the job considerably.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw, great power Was in a pinch an had to get a saw. Chose this one. Great power, easy to start, an very quiet compared to other saws. When it first started I thought something was wrong. Cuts trough asphalt and concrete like butter May 30, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Consider before purchasing I bought this saw with the Home Depot recommended saw blade. The saw came in 3 days. The blade took 5 or 6. The blade didn’t fit the saw and no adapter was provided. I then went to Home Depot, and 2 other large stores to try and find the 16” blade or adapter. No one sells them. I returned the saw and am going to buy the 14” they seem to be carried at any of the home improvement stores. Bottom line saw was great, but if you need a blade with short notice get another size saw. May 30, 2014
