The Ripper (General Purpose) is designed to be used on a variety of materials and for those occasional users who have vague knowledge about the materials they are cutting. This blade is ideal for use by distribution networks that deal with homeowners and small contractors. Because of its ability to cut a range of materials, it is useful in many cutting situations that you may encounter.
We decided to take our top selling MAX blade and reduce the diamond segment height from 13mm to 10 mm to lower the price…but not the performance!

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 also pinch the blade between the slabs immediately inhibiting functioning, possibly tearing segments from the blade.
To remove the blade, cut it free from the slab using another blade instead of pulling it out or risk bending the core and ripping segments off.
Tips & Tricks:
Never force the blade to cut and let the weight of the saw be the pressure being applied. 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.
