If you want to make fast, accurate cuts in large steel, it’s hard to beat a horizontal bandsaw. Larger tools of this sort are operated hydraulically by controls on a front-mounted control box, but more affordable models like the Grizzly G0622 Metal Cutting Bandsaw are designed with handles and wheels to give it some portability and flexibility. The Grizzly G0622 has 3 cutting speeds for cutting any kind of metal. It uses a powerful 3/4 HP 60Hz that runs on a standard 110V-120V, 15 amp circuit. The Grizzly G0622 would serve as an integral part of any small or medium metal shop. With its 15 TPI blade, the Grizzly G0622 metal cutting bandsaw can take on various cutting duties with nearly any material—including metal, wood, or even plastic.
Grizzly G0622 Metal Cutting Bandsaw Features
This Grizzly G0622 metal cutting bandsaw offers 78, 108, 180 FPM (feet per minute) cutting speeds. The importance of variable speed comes into play when you switch between metals like soft steel and aluminum or other materials that require different cutting speeds (and possibly different blades as well). The included 15TPI blade is 64-1/2” by 1/2”, and seems a bit more suited for wood than metal at first glance. Still, the Grizzly G0622 bandsaw is ready to cut aluminum or soft brass right out of the box if you use the high speed. Also, the 3 speed feature permits the bandsaw to cut different type of materials with varying hardness simply by changing the V-belt placement on the supplied pulleys. For still and stainless, you’re going to want to get a 24TPI blade and run the saw in its slowest speed.
For mobile and portability, the Grizzly G0622 Metal Cutting Bandsaw is equipped with handles and wheels on the cast iron table and steel base. It is also equipped with a vertical cutting attachment for specific or unique cutting requirements. The Grizzly G0622 has maximum cutting capacities of 4-1/2” diameter for circular and 4-1/2” by 6” for rectangular materials.
In addition, the Grizzly G0622 Metal Cutting Bandsaw features an automatic shutoff for safety. The system comes with the saw and its cast iron table and steel base, a 64-1/2″ x 1/2″ x 15 TPI blade, and a 1 year warranty.
