MAKITA METAL CUTTING DIAMOND BLADE ENGINEERED TO LAST UP TO 100X LONGER

Latest addition to blade line-up is a longer-lasting alternative to abrasive blades

Makita® has released a new 14” Metal Cutting Diamond Blade (model D-42597) that is engineered to last up to 100 times longer than standard abrasive metal cutting blades. It is ideal for use with a chop saw when cutting a range of materials including metal pipe, studs, angle iron, rebar, and threaded rod.

Less Downtime
“Contractors using standard abrasive blades with their chop saw typically experience more down time due to frequent blade changes,” said Brandon Stover, Product Manager, Accessories. “The new Metal Cutting Diamond Blade eliminates hours of downtime, and is a great labor-saving accessory for any 14” chop saw user.”

Longer Blade Life
The D-42597 has a vacuum-brazed diamond cutting edge that lasts up to 100 times longer than standard abrasive blades. The blade’s steel core is engineered for consistent cutting capacity throughout the life of the blade. The segmented rim reduces heat build-up and maximizes material removal. It is ideal for use with 14” cut-off saws, including the Makita 2414DB and 2414NB, for a range of metal cutting applications.

Expanding Blade Line-Up
The new 14” Metal Cutting Blade is part of Makita’s expanding line-up of Optimum Diamond Blades engineered for fast, smooth cutting and long life. Each Makita Diamond Blade features the highest-quality synthetic diamonds for improved performance. The line includes segmented and turbo diamond blades in a range of sizes, and complements Makita’s existing collection of quality cutting and grinding power tools. Blade sizes range from 4” to 16”, as well as multiple aggregate descriptions.
