Best Circular Saw Blades For Battery Life


I don't care about cut quality on typical woods found in box stores (and the occasional older wood encountered in roofing and remodeling.)

I'm not sure if more teeth is harder on the battery... but I am sure the geometry of the cutting edge is definitely a player in battery life.

Or just buy a Diablo? Which one? (5-3/8in)

I've had good luck with Diablo, and the avanti brand does well for demo and framing work.

Re: Best Circular Saw Blades For Battery Life


I have a ridgid gen5x (brushless model) cordless circular. And I just run a 24t blade. 60 and 4 tooth blades killed the blades but I also wasn't cutting wood so those were added variables.

5 3/8" ?? thats your problem right there. get a bigger and newer saw.
but thinner blades is generaly what you want. the diablos are fairly thin.

Brushless makes a HUGE difference, IF you are using a brushed saw.

More teeth slows the saw down, probably harder on the battery. I assume you'd want the minimum number of teeth engaged that will give you the desired finish.
