Diablo Has Improved Masonry Cutting with Turbo Cut-Off Blades
If you’ve ever plunged a grinder or power cutter wheel into stone or masonry, you know how important it is for it to keep cutting well until you finish the work. Just as important as the tool you use is your choice of blade. Diablo’s aim for its Diamond Turbo cut-off blades is for you to receive a longer life and better performance than standard diamond cut-off discs. We’ll examine how these new diamond blades from Diablo stand out from their former cut-off models.
Diablo Diamond Turbo Cut-off Blades – The Big Deal
Diablo uses industrial-grade diamonds and a hardened disc body to produce a durable saw blade for cutting into masonry. This coupled with the strong bond from the diamond edge to the body, lets Diablo claim these have double the life expectancy of standard diamond cut-off discs.
This round of non-segmented Turbo cut-off blades come in 4-inch, 4-1/2-inch, 5-inch, and 7-inch sizes. Diablo tells us that they have an ultra-thin, constant contact turbo rim design to give you precise cuts at high speeds. The three smaller blades have a kerf of 0.08-inch while the 7-inch blade’s kerf is 0.09-inch.
The Turbo discs are built for use on hardened materials like concrete, brick, and masonry. On top of that, you can use it in both dry and wet conditions so there’s no need to worry about getting rained out. The 7-inch blades also come recommended for cutting tile when used with a wet saw.
Each blade includes a 20mm bushing and a 5/8-inch bushing so that it fits a variety of saw arbors.

Final Thoughts, Pricing, and Availability
Diablo has made diamond masonry blades for years. In fact, the Turbo line originated years ago. This seems like a rolling change with some minor cosmetic and structural updates. Diablo typically improves their products with these updates—so look for faster cutting over prior models. For the Pro, that’s a win in our book.
