How to Choose the Right Diamond Blade for you Job.

If you want to get the best, fastest cut possible, it’s important to choose the proper chain or blade for specific job.  That diamond blade you used on the last job, might not fit the bill this time.  Here’s what you need to know about 

  1. Cutting Material vs. Blade Material: Knowing the material to be cut is the first step.  Each Diamond blades is specifically engineered to cut a specific type of material – granite, concrete, asphalt, steel, etc.  It’s also important to know the type of aggregate in your material (i.e. limestone, sand, rock, etc) Using a blade designated specifically for your material and aggregate will provide the best cut. 

  2. Blade Speed vs. Tool Speed:  What tool you’re using will always make a difference in what type of blade you should buy. Matching your tool series to a blade series is always a good place to start. Manufacturers have outline specific speed ratings that one properly paired will provide optimale performance for both your saw and your blade.

  3. Quality vs. Cost: You might be tempted to buy a cheaper blade to save a little money, but that could cost you extra time if the blade doesn’t perform like it’s premium conterpart.  If it’s a smaller job, then a less expensive blade could perform well, but for large jobs a more expensive blade will last longer and cut better. A rule of thumb: a higher end, Diamond Blade will provide the best cost per inch/foot cut.

  4. Wet Vs. Dry: The decision to cut with a dry blade or a wet blade depends on your job site (i.e. if there’s a water source available).  While a dry cutting blade can also be used wet, a wet blade should never be used dry as it’s not made to withstand the high heat generated by cutting and will break down.  Know how you’re going to cut before you buy.

  5. Blade Speed vs. Tool Speed:  What tool you’re using will always make a difference in what type of blade you should buy. Matching your tool series to a blade series is always a good place to start. Manufacturers have outline specific speed ratings that one properly paired will provide optimale performance for both your saw and your blade.
