I've seen guys try to cut steel with carbide tipped blades before and it wasn't pretty, wonder what's different here?

I like how during the demonstration of cutting the anchor iron there is a disclaimer that it's "not designed for this use."

Cool tool though!

That is a cool tool, I wonder who's shop it will end up in. At 1/2 the cost of a plasma cutter(according to the clip). It will be a little expensive unless you use it all the time.

I found an online source: $379 for the 7" version, $499 for the 9" version.

Think I'd rather have a plasma cutter. More versatile.

these are death wheels... However, they are awesome for construction. Most of the yards I shop at sell these, and their biggest customers are concrete and general construction guys to cut re-bar/angle.

The blades are where the money is, not the saw. I have used one, and they are not for long cuts, curved cuts, or cutting off heavy plate.

just my .02

Those blades just strike me as really wrong. So you say death wheels, they are as dangerous as they seem, then?

great for quick easy cuts... same as a cut off wheel. I'll stick to my o/a and plasma. when I let go of the trigger, the tool quits. Not so with a saw like that.
