What Makes the Semi-Automatic Crosscut Power Saws Different?

MOST IMPORTANTLY, SAFETY FEATURES.  This saw was designed with safety features in mind.

  • Lexan Polycarbonate Enclosed Cutting Area

    Lexan covers the top of the saw.  The totally enclosed cutting area prevents the operator’s hands from getting near the blade.

  • Semi-Automatic Cutting Feature

Push button on the front of the machine use is what makes this Crosscut Power Saw special.  The controls are easily accessible and housed on the front panel of the machine.  Simply clamp the material either manually or pneumatically and push the button.  The blade travels forward under the enclosed Lexan top to cut the material.  The adjustable stops on the right side of the machine control the carriage stroke.  Because of the stops, the blade doesn’t travel farther than needed. Consequently, this time saving feature can increase your production and efficiency.

What Kind of Material Can Be Cut?

A Crosscut Power Saw can easily cut through wood and wood products, composite material and plastic.  Cuts can be made on single boards or stacked boards.

Who Uses a Semi-Automatic Crosscut Power Saw?

Semi-Automatic Crosscut Power Saw like these are ideal for pallet shops, lumber yards, schools in addition to many more industries.

Any Other Recommendations?

Yes.  We recommend outfitting your saw with our Saw Extension Tables.  These tables provide safe support of your material on the right and left sides.  Saw Extension Tables are available as flat tables or roller tables.  Tables can be joined together to make longer sections.  Plus, Saw Measuring Systems can be added to your saw and tables and, as a result, make a complete cutting station.
