Next Generation 6-1/2

New Design Optimized for Cordless Saws Equates to Increased Run Time and More Cuts Per Charge

ATLANTA, Dec. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Diablo has once again upped the cutting game with its next generation 6-1/2" 24-Tooth Tracking Point™ saw blade. This new blade produces accurate, smooth cuts on framing materials without bogging down cordless power tools. Designed with the professional user in mind, this next generation blade increases jobsite efficiencies with the introduction of Tracking Point™, a "rudder" like tooth design that reduces vibration and tension, allowing for true, straight cuts from the first cut to the last. End-users can feel confident that "unplugging" with Diablo will deliver up to 65% more cuts per charge in cordless saws.

Optimized for corded and cordless saws, professional contractors will feel the cutting efficiencies of this new Diablo 6-1/2" blade thanks to its Perma-SHIELD™ nonstick coating and the super-thin kerf, which minimizes material removal and produces a fast, clean cut. And while the thinner blade is lightweight, the custom formulated carbide, sharp cutting edges, and the Tracking Point™ tooth design classifies this blade as a heavyweight when it comes to durability. This 24-tooth framing blade is ideal for framers, roofers, remodelers, concrete formers or anyone who owns a saw that chews through nail-embedded wood.

Key features include:

  • Specially formulated Diablo made TiCo Hi-Density Carbide delivers up to five times longer cutting life verses other blades.
  • Tracking Point™ tooth design delivers extreme cutting efficiency in corded and cordless saws – up to 65% more cuts per battery charge in cordless saws versus the competition.
  • Tracking Point™ "rudder" like tooth design provides straight cuts and doubles the carbide surface area for greater impact resistance and double the durability in nail-embedded wood.
  • Thinner kerf removes less material, which reduces the power needed from the tool resulting in longer run times and more cuts.
  • Perma-SHIELD™ nonstick coating reduces drag and shields the blade against heat, friction, gumming and corrosion.
  • Laser-cut stabilizer vents absorb noise and vibration, keeping the blade straight and true for superior quality cuts.

"Diablo is thrilled to provide another enhanced solution to our customers in this durable blade that significantly extends product life as well as tool battery life, while delivering the highest quality cut. The difference is a rudder tooth design with two right and left Alternate Top Bevel (ATB) tooth grinds that enables the blade to maintain a straight track maximizing cutting performance," said Russell Kohl, President and CEO of Freud America. "What has changed versus the previous design is this blade is optimized for cordless saws, we've increased the durability, extended the life, and maximized the number of cuts per charge – all equating to increased run time, so users can get the job done quicker and more efficiently."
