The 8320 BigSaw from CS Unitec is the largest dry-cutting, portable metal saw on the market, according to the manufacturer. Featuring a 12.625-in.-dia., 80-tooth, carbide-tipped blade that can cut 4.75 in. deep without distortion, the saw cuts through steel, sandwich panels, conduits, and metal pipes. Cuts are burr-free and cool to the touch within seconds, says the company.
The saw’s 16-amp, 115-V motor delivers a free cutting speed of 1,400 RPM and features motor overload protection to prevent motor burnout. With a side-mounted tilt tray for chip disposal and an integrated dust collection port for connection to an industrial vacuum, the saw can operate dust-free.
An optional guide rail with clamping system is available to make straight cuts through sandwich panels and sheets up to 55 in. long.
