what type of diamond blade for tile roofs?

Hi there I recently picked up a older partner 650 12" cut-off saw and need some advice on what type of blade is best for tile roofs. I have only done repairs and have been using a turbo blade on my skill saw and would like to find out what you are using-thanks jason

I find that they are varyous prices but unless your cutting clay tiles stick with the cheaper ones as they do just as good a job.

I guess you can use 7 1/4 inch concrete diamond blade. It will work well with a skill saw.

I agree if you are dealing with the clay tiles use the cheap ones.
