Blades for the LT70?
« on: January 18, 2013, 08:56:08 AM »
   I'm getting ready to purchase my first set of bands. I'll be running the LT70 with a 62hp cat engine. I believe Marty recommended 7* bands, but not sure what thickness or width.
   I'll be sawing red & white oak, hard & soft maple, cherry, and probably some hemlock and pine; as well as a few others. Is there a one size fits all type of band, or do I need a few different profiles? Any help would be appreciated ;D

You'll want to run a .055 x 1-1/2" x 184" x 7 degree. Part number B4761847S.   Thanks

I'm running what sparks suggested, which is the same that Marty suggested. I've got limited run time, but am happy with them. Mostly oaks/poplars so far.
