Q: How many feet (inch Feet) can I expect to cut with a premium concrete blade? How about asphalt?

A:The first thing to understand when measuring the life of a diamond blade is the unit of measure that represents the actual amount of material removed by the diamond blade. Material removal when referenced for diamond blades is expressed in inch-feet. The unit of inches describes the depth of cut of the blade and the unit of feet is used to indicate the distance of travel. So for example a blade this is used to make a 30 foot long cut 5 inches deep will have removed 150 inch-feet of material. It is also possible that a blade that is used to make a ten foot long cut ten inches deep will have removed 150 inch-feet of material. So to get the amount of material removed it is simply a matter of multiplying the length of the cut in feet by the depth of the cut in inches to get the total inch-feet removed.

Some general notes about applications:

  • Using a blade designed to cut dry in a wet cutting application will significantly reduce the life of the blade but improve the cutting speed.
  • Increasing the horsepower will reduce the footage and in some drastic cases result in catastrophic failure of the steel core.
  • On average an economy blade will strive to achieve somewhere in the 800 to 1500 inch feet when used exactly as specified on the label.
  • A premium product when used as specified on the label and in the appropriate application is estimated to achieve in the range of 3500 to 5000 inch-feet.
