How do you test circular saw blades? We decided to line up some comparative tests of the new Diablo Demo Demon Tracking Point Amped circular saw blades alongside the Irwin WeldTech and new DeWalt 2X Long Life 7-1/4″ blades. We used several cordless circular saws as well as rigs that included stacked OSB and a custom “sandwich” of 2×12 lumber, MDF, plywood, lag bolts, and asphalt shingles.
The results were telling in both speed of cut and the ability to keep going once our tests were completed. While the Irwin WeldTec wins on price, it was pretty worn out after completing our cuts. The ~$15 Diablo Demo Demon was slightly faster and could keep going for many more cuts.
If you’re cutting in ridge vents or performing other difficult demo cutting work, picking up some of these new Diablo Demo Demon blades with Tracking Point Amped tooth geometry should make a huge difference in productivity.
