In order to determine the best diamond blade for the job, make sure to answer these important questions:
• What kind of saw is being used – high speed or walk-behind (high or low horsepower)
• Will the cutting be done wet or dry
• What kind of material is being cut – cured concrete, green concrete, asphalt or asphalt over concrete
• What level of performance do I need – higher quality diamonds may cost more, but offer greater cutting performance, life and overall value
