While many blades are designed for cutting specific materials, multipurpose cutoff saw blades are designed to be used as a single tool for cutting multiple materials. These saw blades offer responders operational flexibility without the burden or necessity of changing blades between applications.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Technical Report on Multipurpose Reciprocating Saw Blades are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
