Kenny Stanley, Water Systems Technician 4 for the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department’s water branch, doesn’t know which diamond blade his branch used before switching to Ductile Iron Safety Blades, just that it was some “cheesy blade” from Korea. He does remember the cutting segments breaking off, though. None of his guys got hurt, but it was still aggravating.
“The guys would come in (and say) my blade’s dull!” said Stanley. “Yeah, if you’re missing pieces…”
San Diego received a trial blade from Desert Diamond Industries about two years ago, and now uses the Safety Blade to cut cast iron, PVC, ductile iron, and concrete. Stanley said it lasts longer, and added that its solid steel design resists breakage, unlike the welded Korean blades that they used before.
