Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CBailey Great purchase and labor saver!
Great product! Have always cut pipe/strut/rod with a hacksaw or reciprocating saw. This is faster and easier and I can always thread nuts back onto the rod. Well worth the money spent!

Pay attention to the ad. The last line says Includes: (1) Band saw and (1) case.
That means there is NO BLADE! Don't be mislead by the picture. Be sure to pick one of those up as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JCz Great Saw Minor/Major Problems
I have two of these saws bought by the company I work for. The choice of saw was mine to make, however we probably own 10-15 of them. The stamped metal backstop on all of the others is not accurate if you let the backstop try to square your material. This saw is pretty good at this. My only complaint is that the first saw after about 6 months of use the backstop fell off. The screws holding it stripped out of the Aluminum housing. I bought another saw to replace it while the first was being repaired, its backstop has been loose from the beginning. I am scared to attempt to tighten it for fear of stripping the screws. The repair required the hole to be redrilled, tapped to a larger size, then used lock tight to keep them in place. After this repair I have used the saw for close to two years with no problems.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Errol The cluch unit is not a very good idea,
The design of the clutch is lacking. The 6230 is a much more reliable saw for field work for the long haul. I currently have about 40 porta bands in inventory and will not purchase another with a clutch. If that means going to another brand ,so be it.

Previously used abrasive chop saw, and after operating a similar unit on a jobsite, I knew I had to get one. It has been my go to cutting tool the past few weeks working great on 1/4" stainless steel bar stock, and 1-3/4" DOM tube. Highly recommend one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hey Elmo Very Happy With The Choice I Made
I bought this saw to replace another Brand saw I lost in a fire. I use the saw to work on my utility trailer, cut pipe and scrap iron for many welding projects I come up with around my propery, cut exaust pipe for vehicles and equipment. This saw is much more durable then my previous. The slender motor makes veiwing cuts much better and the LED light is great when cutting in shadowed areas. Also I love the balance feel Awkward positions. It has the power to cut stock large or small. If anything happened to this saw I would definatley replace it with the same one!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rick Best product for the money
I needed a portable band saw for a job with 3"x3" steel posts that had to be cut down at the job site. This saw made short work of the post with ease! Nice clean cuts! Fast with little vibration. Easy clean up. Does not throw shavings everywhere like other saws! It's worth the money!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Curt Performs as it is intended. Would be better if al aluminum.
Had one previously and needed to replace it. I am fairly happy with this product. It does what it is intended to do. Too much plastic compared to the previous model made of aluminum.
