There is a big difference between a metal blade and a wood blade, even if they both need to be used in conjunction with a chainsaw, which is a wide range of power tools that can be used to cut custodial, wood, plastics and other items, cutting different materials requires the use of different gears and hardness of the blade, because the hardness of the different materials are not the same and the size of the different materials are different, cutting the metal need to be used in the more hardened blade material of the TPI.

What is the difference between the design of a metal blade and a wooden blade?

Softer materials are fine, usually wood with a TPI of 5-10 is preferred.


What are the types of metal blades?

There are many types of metal blades, depending on what you are using them for, if you want to remove nails from wood you can use a removal blade, if you want to cut wood and metal then you can use a combination blade, both will cut, but the downside is that you can't cut metal that's too hard, but you can cut harder wood. There are also metal cutting blades and carbide blades and carbide grit blades that are specialized for metal.

Carbide Grit Blades: These blades have no teeth and can be used to roll tiles and stones.

Carbide blades: High strength alloys, cast iron and stainless steel.

Metal Cutting Blade: This metal cutting blade can be used specifically for cutting metal, generally it has a hardness of 15-24 TPI.



Can I cut branches with a metal blade?

Yes, because metal blades are very thin, which slows down the cutting speed and makes the surface very hot. This can lead to burning of the wood and damage to the blade.
