The EXTRACTOR-II Rescue Blade is engineered with durability and versatility in mind. The heart of the blade is a steel core with high quality industrial cutting diamonds vacuum-brazed to the edge. Segments do not break or fly off as with traditional laser-welded diamond blades, making this blade literally bulletproof. It has a proven track record, having been tested under the harshest of conditions by professional firefighters across the United States. It is the most dependable and versatile all-purpose rescue blade available and has never been outperformed by any blade on the market, ever!
Special pricing for Fire/Police departments.
Note: The Roof Ripper Blade is the best for cutting tires and railroad ties.
Cut with confidence, some pressure can be applied to increase cut speed because The EXTRACTOR-II Rescue Blades are not fragile like abrasive blades.
Keep the saw RPM high so the blade doesn’t bog down in the cut, and try to keep the blade straight and perpendicular to the cut. If the blade begins to bog down in the cut, quickly raise it from the point. and keep the saw's RPMs high, generally one does not need to remove the blade completely from the cut to get the blade back up to high RPMs.
When cutting soft materials like aluminum, copper or brass, the diamond edge of the blade may glaze up a little. If this happens, stick the tip of the blade, while spinning at high RPMs, into asphalt, concrete block, brick, or the road surface to deglaze it (remove debris and expose the diamonds) for maximum cutting performance.
For hurricane glass and security glass, also use high RPMs for fastest cut.
When finished cutting, IT IS SUGGESTED TO NOT STOP THE BLADE’S SPINNING BY STICKING IT INTO SOMETHING! DOING SO TENDS TO SHORTEN THE LIFE OF THE BLADE.
IMPORTANT: Always use safety glasses, appropriate mask and protective clothing when cutting.
