This blade gives new life to underpowered table saws and radial arm saws because the thin kerf does not require much horsepower. The Perma-SHIELD® coating helps this blade pull 1/3 less on the saw, which translates into over 33% more cutting power. The ideal working range is from 3/4" to 2-3/4" thick.
Freud has customized their LU87R blade especially for track saws. The 20° hook angle allows for a smooth, easy cut with a handheld saw. At 160mm in diameter, this blade will fit the Festool TS-55 saw family, the DeWalt DWS520 track saw, and Makita SP600K track saw.
The Perma-SHIELD® coating covers the blade plate and cutting edge in a protective layer, reducing heat build-up. Perma-SHIELD® blades resist binding in large volume cutting, reducing subsequent blade warp. The coating lubricates the blade, allowing it to spin freely, and eliminates pitch and debris build-up on the blade.
The LU87R blade is also available in standard blade diameters.
