The diamond blade is a vital piece of equipment for cutting concrete.
Whether you need to cut kerbstones, paving slabs, or drainage pipes, this versatile product gets the job done fast.
Concrete is one of the most commonly cut materials on-site, so it’s essential to have the right diamond blade for the job. If you need to cut concrete, you need a diamond blade designed, developed, and manufactured specifically for this application and is fit for purpose. Quality blades provide optimal price per cut, long-life and minimal downtime, reducing the cost of changing cheaper blades.
Finding the best blade for your application can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. This article should help narrow down your decision! We’ve highlighted five-diamond blades that are great for cutting concrete.
Many different diamond blades are available on the market, so it’s essential to match the right blade with your need. When it comes to diamond blades for concrete, there are a few factors you need to consider before making your purchase.
Why choose a quality blade?
Why not choose a £20 blade? Apart from the safety risks associated with unaccredited suppliers, a cheap blade is unlikely to provide long life and a satisfactory result, wasting resources and reducing profit.
Five diamond blades for cutting concrete
These diamond blades are, in our opinion, best for cutting concrete:
Should I use a multi-use blade?
If your application is across various materials, you will find it more convenient to use a multi-use blade, saving you time and money switching between blades. However, if you’re working purely with concrete, choose a dedicated concrete blade for cutting lintels, concrete blocks, kerbstones or paving. We recommend using a dedicated asphalt diamond blade while solely cutting asphalt, tar, or bitmac.
If you choose a multi-use blade, select one with undercutting protection. Undercutting happens after prolonged blade use, cutting asphalt and abrasive materials, where the steel centre plate becomes worn before the cutting segments have reached the end of their useful life. Quality, well-designed blades provide Undercut protection, ensuring optimal cost per cut and delivering lifetime value.
