Start Up & Power
Your review: The power and torque of this motor seems to be fine for my 24" (16.5" cut depth) HD band saw. However, maybe I'm expecting too much, but the start up seems just a bit slow. The large cast iron wheels of this saw do need good initial power to begin moving. But the saw does hold RPM during most sawing. I have not needed to cut material thicker than 12+ inches at this time. I will be doing some green log (14" to 16") in the near future.
