What are the advantages of The Warthog over the blade I'm using now?
There are 3 main advantages to The Warthog:
It doesn't bind. Because the tips are a full 3/8" wide and the kerf created when cutting is almost 1/2" wide. This leaves room for the blade to rotate freely withour binding.
It doesn't clog. The deep gullet design of the teeth allow the cut materials to clear the blade guard area easily.
The tips don't fall off. The large surface area of the tips coupled with the special method of attaching the tips creates a superior bond that resits tip loss. See the warranty below. Does the blade you are using now offer a tip loss warranty???
What type of materials can the Warthog blade cut?
The Warthog Ventilation Blade is designed to cut wood and other soft materials such as roofing, and siding. However due to the nature of fire service cutting operations, it is often necessary to cut structural components of varied construction with underlying components of unknown composition. Fire department customers of the Warthog Ventilation Blade find that the blade has also cut brick, galvanized pipe, and light gauge sheet metal, (as found on flat roof decking) without substantial detrimental effects.
What type of saw do you recommend to use with The Warthog?
We do not recommend one saw over another but when considering a saw purchase, try to spec out one with at least 95cc.
Is it OK to cut through roof rafters when I open up a roof?
No. Since the roof is already under additional stress because of the fire, you must try not to cut the structural members. This may be difficult. Only with practice and experience with The Warthog and your saw will you be able to tell when you come up to a rafter. When you feel the rafter, slowly lift the saw to ride up over it. Then sink the saw all the way back down into the roof and continue to the next one. Remember most residential roof rafters are spaced on either 16" or 24" centers.
Why don't you make a 14" Warthog Ventilation Blade?
The 12" model weighs approximately 5 lbs. A 14" model would simply be too heavy. Also the gyroscopic force from such a blade may be too strong to handle safely.
The blade is too hard to clean while still mounted on the saw. But when we leave some tar on the blade it doesn't work like it should. What can we do?
First, don't be lazy, take the blade off the saw to clean it. Immerse it in solvent or other cleaner to loosen the buildup then use a stiff bristle brush or scraper to complete the job. When done cleaning, wipe the blade dry and give it a coating of WD 40 or similar spray. This will protect the blade from rust and also help to prevent build up the next time you use it. It will also make it easier to clean next time.
