General Information about Blades:
Combo Blades (SB-B) - have a medium bond and can be used in both asphalt and concrete. Combo blades will not cut as quickly as the specialized surface blades will, but if you find yourself cutting into both types of surfaces often they are a worthwhile investment.
In our test marketing the Combo blade cut over 100 saw-cut loops.
Concrete Blades (SB-C) - have a soft bond and are designed to be used in hard materials such as concrete, concrete with reinforced bar, block, brick, hard brick, pavers, clay pavers and field stones. Using a concrete blade in abrasive surfaces like asphalt will cause the blade to wear quicker.
Asphalt Blades (SB-A) - have a hard bond and are designed to be used only in abrasive material like asphalt. Using an asphalt blade in a surface like concrete can cause the blade to crack, teeth to chip off, and can possibly damage the saw-cut machine.
The Asphalt Blade is the highest quality blade we offer, but it should only be used for cutting asphalt. In our test marketing this blade cut over 200 loops.
All of the 14" diameter blades are rated up to 25 horsepower, and will fit 3/4" to 1" arbors. All of the 14" blades now feature a depth guide to help installers quickly set the proper depth for their cut.
Our 7" blade is ideal for getting into areas where a walk behind saw cannot fit. If you ever find yourself needing to install or replace loops under pavers investing in a lower profile saw and blade can be very beneficial. With a handsaw and a 7” blade it is possible to selectively pull up pavers in the pattern of the loop and cut the grooves with a smaller profile blade. This blade is available is a 'Combo' blade only, and measures 3/16" wide. This blade will fit arbors from 5/8" to 7/8".
