I had a 50 yr old, 6 inch cast iron pipe i had to remove a small section of in my crawl space. The pipe was running in between floor joists and was too confined to get a chain snapper or a grinder in at it. After 3 hrs I went through 2 bi-metal blades and hadn't even got 1 inch into the pipe. I was flabbergasted. I got a tip on this blade from a plumber buddy. Popped this blade in and 50 mins later, two fine cuts in the "beast" pipe. Blade still has plenty of grit for another cut. Not sure why others guys have an issue with this blade, if I find myself in same situation again, I won't hesitate to go for this blade.

I used this blade to cut through approximately 8 feet of a stuccoed wall while installing a window. The blade worked great. I did try it on an old 3 inch cast iron drain pipe and like the other reviewer it did not cut at all. Stucco = good, cast iron = bad.

I used this blade to cut through a 1.5" galvanized pipe. Took about 20 minutes as I was in a crawl space with limited room. Other reviewers talked about it taking a long time but that it works well so I didn't mind. The next pipe was 2" galvanized. After about 45 minutes I looked at the blade to see it was completely smooth. No "diamond" cutting material remained in the cut zone. I also purchased a "cheap" metal blade to cut my ABS pipe once I removed the galvanized and cast iron system. Since I already had the other blade (also purchased at Home Depot but solid red in color - no names) I put it in my Sawz-All. I completed the cut in the 2" pipe in about 10 seconds - not kidding. I went to my second 2" pipe and cut completely through in about a minute. The blade still looked good and easily cut the ABS with nice clean edges. Now the last pipe - 3" cast iron. I wasn't sure what to expect but about a minute and a half later the pipe was cut so cleanly I couldn't believe it. Again additonal ABS cuts were clean and smooth. Don't waste your money or your time like I did. Buy red instead.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIY Jim Cast Iron Heating Radiator Removal
I used this saw blade to cut apart old cast iron radiators so they could be removed from a building. The cutting speed was comparable to the standard "the torch" 18 TPI blade but the durability of this blade is far superior. I've cut through 6 2.5" cast "pipes" and the blade still works like new. After cutting through 1 with the normal 18 TPI blade it was wearing out and slowing down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by acs 4"cast iron hub/spigot removal
Far end of a short crawler, access with sawzall much easier than getting a ratchet snap cutter there (cut access also). Far superior to carbide grit, the blade is strong and ridgid. These blades will actually cut cast iron without the instant "suprise" of a snap cutter on a repair. Well worth the money.

Great blade. Cuts through ceramic. It is not too aggressive which allows you to control the cut better.
