Great saw but not impressed with life span of Diablo blades. Know of any other brand blade to fit this saw for fiber cement siding?

Asked by: Anonymous
I have yet to find a different blade. I too am disappointed in the life of the blades. I have found that you have to keep the plunge cutting to a minimum. It kills the blades very quickly! If you avoid plunge cutting they do tend to last ALOT longer. I use mine almost specifically with fiber cement backer board for tile. Hardiebacker and siding absolutely eat these blades but competitors products tends to be a bit kinder to the blades.
