"Proven dependable since 1921"
Still the fastest swing saw for most cut-off operations in wood, plastic, or other comparable materials.
FAST... up to 72 cuts per minute readily adaptable to a wide variety of operations in various matirals.
GREATER CAPACITY ... clearance closer to arbor gives greater cutting capacity per diameter inch of blade.. more power.. lower cutter cost.
EASY OPERATION... because motor is mounted close to arbor, operator starts and stops less wieght each stroke result is less operator fatique, greater productivity.
MORE ACCURATE features like structural steel frames, stress proofed cast iron brackets, large bearings with wide center distance and structural steel beams assure more accurate cutting.
