Great bandsaw. Was disappointed that changing to 240 was a lot of work. Need to change both pump and motor and not easy access. Left on 120, and has worked very well. I move it around in shop and the 120 makes it easy to plug in anywhere and has plenty of power on 120.The wheels on it do not make it easy to move around shop, so I used the saw to cut some angle and made a new base/stand with swivel wheels on one end. Table height is low, my rollerstands wouldn't work, so when I built my new base, was able to raise height to a better height. Be careful when moving saw to vertical, weight can cause saw base to lift up. Material clamp works good and is easy to move for different size material. Rated a 4 due to useless table for vertical saw, low work height, and straight line wheels. Added a small chain between saw and base to keep saw from lifting up to far. Can see it under lift cylinder. Made base longer on saw head side to help from tipping when lifting saw to vertical. I would say if you want a horizontal saw, great saw, if you want a vertical, maybe not so good. For the price love my saw.

Great for small shop

Weve used this on our farm, mostly for building gates and springs arms. its your average generac brand bandsaw, its no rockwell but it works great for small use. cant beat the price for what your getting, there is quite a bit of plastic used in it for pretty important parts (approach vice grips, switches, etc.). The lube system works great and is on a seperate switch for when your cutting vertical. Some of the writing is poorly translated to english, so it is probably made in china. The base plate for cutting vertical is very flimsy, had to make a new one because its almost paper thin steel. The handle on the approach vice broke, but with it broke its easier to get a better grip on it so i guess that would be a bonus. The vice has angle measurements on the back of it and are surprisingly accurate and go from -5 to 45 degrees in 5 degree increments. weve ran over 6,000 feet of thick steel through it and cant complain one bit. best bang for your buck. The straining system for lube works very well for how simple it is, but you do have to clean the small debris trap often (but i guess that just means its catching most of the filings). absolutely recommend it for small shops & farms.
