I would get a thin body blade so as to not need the force required for tensioning a full body carbon steel blade (0.042”) would be ~ 945lbs. whereas a thin body (0.035”) would only be ~ 788lbs. I’m not sure the saw frame would need to be reinforced, but it would establish a need before assuming it would by measuring frame deflection with the desired blade installed and properly tensioned.
