The new blades deliver maximum performance

New Premium Diamond Blades are available in various sizes and rim types. Shown (clockwise): Segmented General Purpose, Turbo General Purpose, Continuous Rim General Purpose, and Segmented Dual Purpose Blades.

October 2, 2019, La Mirada, CA – Makita® U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional power tools and accessories, announced new Premium Diamond Blades. The seventeen new blades include general purpose and dual purpose blades.

“The new premium diamond blades cut up to 40% faster and last up to four times longer than the competition,” claims Steve Relaz, marketing product manager, “due to new bond formulation and increased segment heights.”

Features of Premium Diamond Blades

Premium Diamond Blades feature a new bond formulation that increases performance, including faster cutting. The bond is the material that holds the diamonds. Only premium quality diamonds are used in these blades. The diamonds provide increased durability and extend the blade life.

The segment heights have increased from 7mm to 13mm for longer life. Cooling slots/gullets are engineered to keep the blade cool during operation and ensure a smooth cutting action for reduced operator fatigue.

General Purpose Saw Blades

Makita launched three general blade types: segmented, turbo, and continuous rim.

  • Segmented Blades – Designed to deliver fast cool cuts in multiple applications, including cutting concrete and asphalt. May be used wet or dry.
  • Turbo Blades – Designed for a smoother finish by providing constant contact with base materials. May be used wet or dry for multiple applications including cutting block, pavers, brick, concrete, and roofing tile.
  • Continuous Rim - Designed for fine cutting in marble, granite, porcelain tile, and ceramic tile. May be used wet or dry.

Dual Purpose Saw Blades

Dual Purpose blades feature a harder bond for strength and segmented edge. These blades are black in color for easy identification. The dual purpose blades are ideal for cutting asphalt and concrete.

The Premium Diamond Blades are part of an expansive line of Makita Concrete Solutions that includes power cutters, rotary hammers, breaker hammers, demolition hammers, grinders, planers, rebar tying tools, dust extraction and more.
