Sept. 24, 2010 – Arbortech has introduced new high performance blades for harder, faster and longer cuts. The blades are available as aftermarket accessories in both the general purpose and plunge styles for its AS170 brick and mortar saw.

Arbortech says the new improved carbide formula and tooth design and the higher temperature brazing allows for the blades to aggressively cut hard mortar while allowing the blades to stay sharper for a longer period of time. The new high performance blades are 50 percent faster than standard blades, allowing for increased cutting speeds.

“The new high performance blades enable better cutting performance and durability to an already innovative and high-performing AS170 brick and mortar saw,” said Henry Schweitzer, national sales manager, Arbortech USA.

The new high performance blades are available in general purpose blades (4 1/2-inches deep and 1/4-inch wide) and plunge blades (4 3/4-inches deep and 1/4-inch wide). High performance general purpose blade applications include general masonry cutting of bricks and mortar, tree root cutting and wood cutting through dirt and sand. Plunge blade applications include general cutting of bricks and mortar, and are ideal for single brick removal and toothing of brickwork.

Arbortech says the AS170 brick and mortar saw’s patented cutting technology uses a unique orbital cutting motion with two forward facing blades that combine to perform both a hammering and a cutting action that allows for the user to have clear visibility and the ability to accurately cut square and deep.
