Easy to operate. Reliable performance cut after cut. See details and closeups of this rugged industrial type slab saw with features that make it the best saw available today. Precision is the key word in the manufacture of the systems components. Exacting tolerances insure perfect matching of hardened bearings, rollers, and rails. The factory alignment of rails to the blade is within .015". The estimated life of these components is approximately 2500 hours. All components are readily accessible for preventative maintenance, minor adjustments and replacement, if required. The "V"-Guide Rail System is standard equipment on this machine. The powerglide hydraulic feed system cuts faster than any screw fed system. Cutting agate at about 3 square inches per minute and onyx at about 10 square inches per minute. Stones of other hardness fall between these figures. The filter and recirculating system of this machine is capable of moving large volumes of clean oil over the cutting surface while cooling and lubricating at the same time. The system consists of a 9 gallon holding tank with 3 settling chambers, filter, submersible pump, coolant guide tubes and saw wash attachment. Has a 1" arbor shaft. The heavy duty 15-gal capacity tank is made of 3/16" steel plate and measures 43.75" long by 26.75" wide by 14.75" deep; The hardened faced jaws of the vise open up to 8" and the crossfeed is 6-1/2".

It comes with a 1 HP heavy duty motor, hydraulic feed and 3-stage filter and recirculation systems. Overall height is 43", vice opening is 7", and depth of cut is 6-1/4" with 5" flange. Shipping weight 670 lbs.

Crating fee (extra)...add $369.00.
Allow 3 to 4 weeks prior to shipping.
The 1HP motor 110v requires a 20 amp circut and a NEMA 5-20R recepticle.

[Diamond Pacfic no longer includes a blade.  Blade must be ordered separately.]
We recommend the 18" MK-303 Professional Saw Blade by MK Diamond having a .085 rim thickness... add $336.00

The saw should be used with oil as a coolant. We recommend using Roc-Oil, a food grade mineral oil... add $26.50 per gallon Add 10 lbs ship. wt. per gallon.
