Designed specifically for the North American market, the Formula S 440P has everything hobbyist and larger craft shops need. This versatile band saw can handle delicate or tight curved work and heavy-duty resaw operations. This robust machine features a 4.8 horsepower single-phase motor, 17.3” resaw height, 16.3” cutting width, and large 17.3” flywheel diameter with a 20.47” x 28.34” worktable that can tilt up to 45°!
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. A rigid, rectified steel guidepost with rack and pinion positioning allows for rapid and precise raising or lowering of the guides. 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 they become like one with them. This means a greater transfer of power, as well as making it nearly impossible to shred them if a blade breaks resulting in 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.
