The Formula S 440P is the number one selling Formula band saw in North America. This Italian designed and manufactured machine is considered the band saw to use for the most discriminating professionals and hobbyists alike.

With engineering and design features found nowhere else, it is easy to see why this is the top selling machine in the Formula lineup. Powerful single-phase motors (4.8hp), heavy-duty large cast-iron balanced wheels, robust cast iron and steel components, best in class resaw capacity, and unparalleled safety features make this the bandsaw of choice for thousands!

The Formula S 440P comes with upper and lower Europeans-style guides on the machine. These guides provide for quick and easy adjustments without the need for tools. They can be adjusted up or down to accommodate the tilting of the table. When you are not tilting the table, you can raise the guides all the way up to the lower table surface to decrease the distance between your guides, maintaining maximum stability through your cut.

This machine boasts plenty of features. Thick cast iron wheels are perfectly balanced to reduce vibration and produce a fly wheel effect to aid in the processing of your pieces. Heavy-duty steel frames are the most rigid in their class and are designed to withstand the tension required for a carbide tipped blade.

The Formula S 440P also has vulcanized tires that not only bonds the rubber tires to the wheel, but fuses them so they become like one, which means greater transfer of power. This also makes it nearly impossible to shred them if a blade breaks, and there is less wear and maintenance over their lifetime.

Two dust ports are included on this band saw, not just one like most others. This helps ensure that you will capture more debris, more efficiently.

  • Solid cast iron upper wheel for more mass and momentum in cutting
  • Tire brush on lower wheel to keep it clean from dust
