  • The chip tray feature serves to keep the work-space debris- and dust-free.
  • Different types of materials can be accommodated thanks to the material stop and roller blade guides; both fully adjustable. This is one of the more convenient features on this saw.
  • As safety goes, the auto-stop feature ceases saw blade movement as soon as it is turned off. In addition, you have coolant systems that reduce overheating.
  • The band saw is actually assisted through jobs by the hydraulic feed that helps with metal cutting.

  • The heavy-duty steel body enhances durability for the long-term.

This multi-functional saw machine has proven to live up to its reputation of being powerful while still providing super quality results in the field of woodworking.

Disadvantages

The shut-off switch has proven to be rather troublesome. The band saw could do with a bit more storage space. If you are on heavy cutting jobs, know that the blade can easily wear out.
