Irwin recently released what they call “the first circular saw blade specifically designed to cut through vinyl siding.” As part of their Marathon line, it sports 120 symmetric, 60-degree teeth that Irwin claims eliminate chipping and cracking on both push and pull cuts.
Irwin also says the new blade offers similar benefits when cutting fencing, down spouts, gutters, and PVC piping — pretty much any vinyl-based items you’ll come across. We, of course, will reserve judgment until we can lay our hands on a few and give ’em a shot.
My only experience cutting vinyl was some fence latticework, but I cut it with a hand saw. This would certainly seem faster. Have any of you tried standard circ saw blades in this task?
Look for the Marathon vinyl siding blades in stores soon, at a suggested retail price of $9.
