Please note: This blade only fits the National 6280HD Walk-behind Scraper
These carbide-tipped angled shanks are used for floors that are too hard or too thick for a steel blade to tear up. The shank tip is made from black hardened tungsten carbide, which makes them significantly harder and sharper than steel blades. Carbide tipped blades are the hardest, sharpest, longest lasting blades available. These shanks are ideal for the removal of wood, ceramic tile, epoxy floors, thinset, AstroTurf and rubber.
The 7281-12 angled shank is just 2″ wide, which makes it idea for taking up wood and 1×1 or 6×6 tile. It’s small size concentrates the pressure of your floor scraper into a small 2″ area to help tear through and break up your flooring, so you can come back with a wider blade for cleanup. The 7281-12 measures 4″ deep x 2″ wide x .312″ thick.
PLEASE NOTE: Attempting to resharpen a carbide blade using a metal wheel (that’s used to resharpen steel blades) will cause the carbide to fracture. Due to the nature of carbide, resharpening a carbide blade requires a special green wheel. While it is possible to do this with a hand grinder, it’s not recommended, as a single resharpen can take 30 minutes or more using such a small hand tool. A bench grinder can lower resharpening time for a carbide tip down to 5-10 minutes, depending on the blade width and how worn down it is. Carbide naturally takes longer to resharpen then a steel blade because it’s so much harder.
