Hide thumbs



WARNING! A cutting blade may burst
and cause injury to the operator.
The cutting blade manufacturer issues
warnings and recommendations for the
use and proper care of the cutting blade.
Those warnings come with the cutting
blade. Read and follow all instructions
from the cutting blade manufacturer.
A cutting blade should be checked
before it is assembled on the saw and
frequently during use. Look for cracks,
lost segments (diamond blades) or
pieces broken off. Do not use a damaged
cutting blade.
Test the integrity of each new cutting
blade by running it at full throttle for
about 1 minute.
Cutting blades are available in two basic designs;
abrasive blades and diamond blades.
High-quality blades are often most economical. Lower
quality blades often have inferior cutting capacity and
a shorter service life, which results in a higher cost in
relation to the quantity of material that is cut.
Make sure that the right bushing is used for the cutting
blade to be fitted on the machine. See the instructions
under the heading Fitting the cutting blade.
