I burl that eats saw blades? Dried burl mesquite or Bois d arc maybe? Red oak is bad on blades but I have not seen any in burl. The sand in old dried mesquite will kill a new chainsaw blade like right now.
I use a Lenox Diemaster 6 tpi blade running at 3300 ipm and it cuts hard burl, cocobolo, bocote, ebony and red oak like butter.
I am a believer in those neoprene BlueMax wheel tires. No slip and no wandering ever. they are a bear to get on the wheel even with the tool they come with. Soaking in hot water for 10 minutes helps a lot and use a little soapy water as lube.

FYI Delta Industrial Supply Company Inc. in Ft Worth has the best price on Lenox blades and will make them up while you wait.
