Mensagem:  A buzzsaw cuts very powerfully through boards, logs, fingers, toes, elbows, etc.  There is nothing delicate or precise about it.  The writer is comparing the Brazilian team with a buzzsaw, implying that nothing can stop it, everyone is helpless against it, etc.

The expression is relatively common.  You will hear natives use it.
