I wish they had the same deals in Canada. I'd like to try the T7"s. My price here is $39.60 each. 11/4x.045 x 195".

Redneckman you must be a lot smoother talker than me.

Just got off the phone with Woodmizer in Indy and he told me I do not have enough horsepower to run it, so I asked him if he would have one to let me try.  He said he would sell me one blade but they do not give blades out so no go for this cat.
Ha Ha!  The person I spoke with was a lady, and I have been told before that I have a "fun" accent.  I layed it on thick.  Sorry it was a no go for you.  At least you tried.  I would buy one if I was you and try it.  I think the HP will be fine.  Just slow down if you bog the engine down too much.  I bet you will love it.  Even when they are a little dull, they still cut better than a fresh 10 degree IMO.  I am getting rid of all my 10's and going with t7's and 4's.

Hey folks, I too am kind of new to the forum, always been a follower though. I have a Norwood HD-36, 23hp, and have always used 10 deg bands. I was considering giving these Turbo 7's a shot based off all of your reviews. I cut a lot of oak and walnut and need a tougher band that will last a bit longer than my current ones. Quick question though, does anyone have any experience with the WM Vortex blades? They advertise they leave a lot less saw dust in the cut when finished while providing decent blade life. Figured we're on the subject, I might as well put it out there.

I have never tried the turbo's I did switch from 10 degree .42 to 4 degree .45 and never looked back. Saw mostly Red Oak and White Pine. New box of 4's arriving today. Jobs are stacking up just need sawing weather now.

Deere80   Concerning free blade samples from woodmizer.  It all depends on who you talk to. Call back and talk to a different person and it may be a go for you.

North Carolina hillbilly redneck worked for me.  However, I talk like that everyday, so it was easy for me. :D :D :D :D
