Feature Transportation Convenience
Carrying handles mounted on the corners make it easy to quickly relocate the saw to other job sites.

Feature Reinforced Miter Cutting CapabilityFeature Photo Available
The saw can perform miter cuts easily by pivoting the rail 45, which negates the need for additional tools. Due to the saw's weight and large dimensions, additional reinforcing posts are used to provide added stability during cutting operations.

Feature Plunge Cutting CapabilityFeature Photo Available
The cutting head offers a large vertical clearance that not only makes it capable of cutting at various depths, but it also allows the operator to perform deep plunge cuts with ease.

Feature Adjustable Cutting HeightFeature Photo Available
The cutting head is fixed to the bridge carriage by a swiveling joint, allowing the operator to easily adjust the height. In addition, a spring counterbalance is provided to ensure height adjustments are made with minimal effort.

Feature Guide RailFeature Photo Available
A stainless steel rail guides the carriage along the full length of the saw. The rail is engineered to provide maximum durability and stability for precision cuts under the most demanding job conditions.

Feature Water Cooling SystemFeature Photo Available
The stainless-steel water tray is designed for easy cleaning and to protect the water pump (located in the provided bucket) from being damaged by abrasive debris, which settles in the tray. The drainage pipe ensures that only water flows into the water bucket. By adding fresh water to maintain the water level, the cooling system provides sufficient water flow to cool down and protect the diamond blade to ensure long blade life.

Feature Rubber Matted Cutting TableFeature Photo Available
The saw is designed to rip or miter cut large blocks and stones. Its steel construction provides durability when handling these large materials, while the rubber mat grips the material and absorbs vibrations for precision, chip-free cutting.

Feature Water BucketFeature Photo Available
The provided water bucket is a vital component of the saw's cooling system. It contains debris-free water to prevent the water pump residing within from being damaged. In addition, the bucket makes it easier to refill the water supply in remote job locations.

Feature Rear & Side Splash GuardsFeature Photo Available
Splash guards reduce water spray to prevent the loss of water cooling during operation and to keep the work site clean.

Feature Slide-In-Legs
The saw includes a set of sturdy slide-in-legs that allow the saw to be easily set up at the job site.

Feature Blade GuardFeature Photo Available
The blade guard is fastened to the cutting head by four tool-free knobs for easy blade replacements. Water pipes connected to the blade guard provide critical cooling water for wet cutting operations.

Feature Carriage Retention DeviceFeature Photo Available
For transportation, the cutting head can be secured halfway along the rail by a locking mechanism. To disengage the lock, simply pull the knob and turn in either direction.

Feature Powerful MotorFeature Photo Available
2-1/2 HP direct-drive motor delivers high torque for incredible cutting power.

Feature Ruler GuideFeature Photo Available
The cutting table features a convenient integrated ruler to allow for accurate cuts.

Feature Thermal Overload Protection
Automatic thermal overload protection prevents the motor from overheating and protects the saw from power surges.

1 The indicated blade is recommended by SawMaster for general use based on the saw's intended applications and its specified blade capacity. The blade may not be appropriate for all applications. As such, SawMaster recommends that you purchase blades that suit your particular needs. Feel free to contact customer service if you need any help with regards to selecting an appropriate blade.

2 Some saws are prepackaged with factory-default slide-in legs. In which case the saw stand shown here is not necessary, but is, nevertheless, recommended for added convenience.

3 Dimension measurements are made of the physical unit and not the package in which the unit is contained within. Measurements will be taken from one extreme to the opposing extreme, not including detachable appendages (e.g. stands, legs, splash guards, and cable retainers). Measurements are approximations that are rounded up to the closest 0.5" for convenience. For saws that feature miter cutting capability, measurements will be taken while the cutting head is set to an upright position.
