Same as Risteard.

I’ve had mine 2 years next week, can’t fault it at all, the best blades I find are the turbo blades. They cut anything and last far longer than a diamond tipped blade.
The vacuum is the important bit now lol

I've used a Metabo, not sure which one. Excellent piece of kit, not withstanding its quite heavy, and you need to be careful when using it.

Agree about the associated vacuum, definitely a requirement.

@Midwest i find mine grand tbh, I found the screwfix Titan is a heavy beast of a thing I found. Your arms are sore at the end of a full day using it lol

The metabo blades wore down from almost new to thin and short in 2.5 tracks in an ex housing executive house built in the late 60’s, the blades started to glow red lol

These ones did?
At about £110 a set they'd need to do a heck of a lot more tracks than that.

No, they’re ordinary ones, looking at these, are they designed to save chipping out?

Looks almost like it’s grinding the entire chase out, like those things that strip up the tarmac.

Yes...just not sure if they can handle walls that are anything more than thermalite. Hence this thread:tearsofjoy:

Just watched a YouTube video of them, some job alright.

Wonder if they’d work in a MFE30 lol
I still don't know if they really work in an MFE 40. A rip saw with a blunt wood blade would cut through thermalite block after all. If they do work and last long enough I'd replace my chaser and if required my dust extractor for it.

Heard good things about the triple blade, apparently removes all the spoil from the chase in one go.

Well I finally contacted Metabo about the triple blade.

Their response:
This blade is for the MFE40 only. It’s perfect for breeze block and will do red brick but very slowly, more designed for softer materials to take the whole chase out.
