The Gladiator Blade features our signature “Cool Core Technology”. This is ideal for novice users who require a more forgiving blade, preventing it from overheating and losing tension.
With a 12mm high diamond segment that is double laser welded for added strength, our Gladiator Blade is near indestructible. The turbo and regular style segments are alternately positioned on the Cool Core with aggressive bonds that cut through hard materials.
The Gladiator has 12mm high alternating regular Zig Zag segments with a high concentration of premium diamond in a fast-cutting bond. The diamonds stay sharp and keep cutting even amidst the harshest conditions. Accomplishes fast and accurate cuts.
Name Game: In 2001, a friend in the movie business gifted us a 10×20 ft poster of the movie Gladiator. This inspired us to name one of our strongest blades after the prominent warrior.
Quality Level: Professional Grade
Hard Materials: Brick/Pavers/Masonry/Reinforced Concrete/Natural Stone
Equipment: Quick-Cut Saw
How to Use:
- Make sure that you have chosen the proper blade for the application.
- Assure that the saw blade flange, shaft and guard are in good condition. Check your manufacturer’s user guide for safety precautions.
- Mount the blade in the proper rotation. Check for an arrow on the saw blade or look at the diamond segment to determine the direction. The diamond in the matrix appears as a “comet” with a diamond head and a “tail” following behind. The direction of the blade follows the “comet”.
- When cutting through a slab, make sure that you clear the blade from the cut before the slab shifts. If not, you could pinch the blade between the slabs immediately inhibiting the blade and possibly tearing away segments.
- To remove the blade, cut it free from the slab using another blade instead of pulling it out or risk bending the core.
Tips & Tricks:
Never force the blade to cut, allow the weight of the saw be the cutting pressure. Always keep the RPMs of the saw constant.
Start by making a very shallow ½” cut to establish a base guide.
If the blade becomes dull, cut a concrete block to re-dress the blade.
Anything that is extremely abrasive or fine should be cut with a material specific blade.
