Makita Premium Diamond Blades Improve Performance and Life
Makita Premium Diamond Blades have a couple of major areas we see improvements and upgrades. On the material strength side, we’re looking at a new bond formulation for the premium quality diamonds. By improving the bonding, Makita is touting higher overall performance, with faster cutting as a practical result.
The blades also move from 7mm to 13mm segment heights. The combination of taller segments and better bonding should greatly improve the overall life of each blade.
Cooling slots and gullets are still in place so the blade stays cooler and the cut runs smoother while you’re working.
According to Makita, you can expect up to 40% faster cutting and 4x the life of competing diamond blades.
