How old is this blade and how much abuse has it seen. Be honest, me I cut 2×4’s and all kinds of construction grade wood with my saws that is what they are supposed to do. But for hardwood and good projects the better blades come out.

Did you cut through the 4×4 all at one time? Cutting through purpleheart 2 inch thick blocks I come up half inch at a time until I get through then come back with a real thin cut all the way across. The heat buildup between that kind of wood while cutting is high, why the rush? Sure the blade can take it, so can my tires if I peel off once, try that everyday and soon you have no tread left.
