Spotlight Video on the Ductile Iron Safety Blade

We’ve put together a new promotional video for the Ductile Iron Safety Blade. It’s a bit different from our other videos because it was shot entirely at the World of Concrete 2013 conference. That being said, we think you’ll like it.

Brotherhood Instructors, LLC on Making Safe Roof Ventilation Cuts in Flat Roofs

Firefighting Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesOur partners at Brotherhood Instructors, LLC produced this video on how to make safe roof ventilation cuts – specifically “7-9-8 ventilation cuts” – in flat roofs. Here’s what they have to say about this video:

The 7-9-8 Ventilation cut provides a preset plan for conducting a cut. Far too often when members cut a roof, they “make each cut up as they go”. This cut will provide a plan-of-attack for each flat-roof that is opened. The design of this cut, and the steps that each cut is performed inherently keeps the firefighter from stepping inside the cut segments, thus increasing safety.

How to Change the Blades on a Husqvarna Cut-n-Break Saw

How To Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesHusqvarna‘s Cut-n-Break saws give you an ingenious way to step-cut up to 16″ deep with 9″ blades. However, their double-blade systems are unusual – maybe even unique – and may take getting used to when you install or change blades.

To make blade changes a little easier, Husqvarna made this how-to video. It features a Husqvarna K3000 Cut-n-Break Electric Saw, but the company says that this procedure works just as well on the Husqvarna K760 Cut-n-Break Gas Saw, too.

You can watch more how-to videos on Husqvarna Construction Products’ YouTube channel.
