Hilti Debuts Contractor Pro High Speed Diamond Blades

Tue August 29, 2006 - National Edition

With a faster cutting speed and up to 50 percent longer life than the current heavy- duty blades, the Contractor Pro High Speed Diamond Blades extend Hilti’s line-up for high-speed gas saws.

Available in three versions — general purpose segmented, general purpose turbo and asphalt segmented — the Contractor Pro blades are ideal for cutting applications in reinforced concrete, concrete block, clay brick and other masonry materials.

For precise cutting and straighter tracking, the Contractor Pro segmented blades feature a 0.125-in. thickness with a stronger core, so they also can be used on low horsepower walk-behind saws. The segments are laser welded.

Standard with a 2-cm arbor and 1-in. knockout, the blades can adapt to larger saws and, although formulated for dry use, they also can be used wet to reduce dust and noise.
