Stone Construction Equipment adds a diamond saw blade line to its Saw Devil masonry and concrete saw lines. The saw blade line covers the most common sizes for the majority of cutting applications. The 26 general-purpose blades fall into two categories — Saw-lect, the value line, and Saw-preme, the premium line. The blades range in size from 12 to 20 inches with bond ratings from 3 to 8 for cutting brick, block, stone, cured concrete, green concrete, asphalt and asphalt over concrete. The blades fit all one-inch arbors and can be used wet or dry.

DeWalt introduces its Precision Framing Blades for framing, roofing and siding installation, and concrete forms. The new blades offer improvement in tooth geometry and blade design, creating a sharper tip that helps to reduce the blade's cutting force. The new blades are designed with resin-filled expansion slots to dampen vibration and improve cutting feel and performance. A new anti-kickback shoulder reinforces the carbide tip for impact resistance, and it also helps to reduce the risk of saw kickback.

Wacker Neuson

Wacker Neuson offers a full line of diamond blades including split segment blades. The 12-inch- and 14-inch-diameter split segment blades are designed to offer versatility, fast cutting, longer life and lower vibrations. The key to the technology is the increased number of segments. By doubling the number of segments, the angle of contact to the material is reduced to provide faster cutting with lower vibrations. Additionally, there are more exit points for dust particles, keeping the blade cooler and ultimately increasing its usable life. The combination of a softer bond and increased air flow allows these blades to effectively work on almost any material on the jobsite.

The new abrasive blade from Norton makes it possible to use a single, high-speed cut-off wheel with a 1-inch or 20-mm arbor hole instead of two wheels with different arbor-hole sizes for heavy-duty, high-speed cutting. Three layers of full glass cloth add extra reinforcement and strength to make the blade last longer. The blade's heavy-duty bond with triple reinforcement is designed to resist side pressure and result in longer life. The new blade is available in 12-, 14- and 16-inch sizes.
