Band saws are one of my favorite saws, they make a nice clean slow cut and are generally less likely to kick back than circular saws. One of the downsides to a band saw is you can only cut a certain dimension of material due to the 2 wheel design. Enter the Deep Cut band saw, it allows you to cut bigger material up to 5″ rectangular stock (5 X 4-3/4″ for round). 10 Amps of power will cut through most any material. The DWM120 has a few features that make it easier to use on the job site. It has a LED light that is turned on via a switch that lights up the work area and clearly lets you see your work. At 15lbs it is not a light tool, but that weight helps the saw cut though material like butter. 100-350 sfm is adjusted by a speed dial and a variable speed trigger giving the user complete control over the cut.
The drill-like handle gives you complete control and the front handle can be adjusted into 3 positions for better ergonomics. We used the tool for a variety of odd cuts like cutting copper out of steel housings. We would not have been able to do this without the deep cut ability. It has a blade tracking adjustment so you can keep the blade on track. Blade changes are a snap, just release the the lever and the blade comes right out. There is no shield on the back of the unit, everything is exposed. I would like to have seen a cover here to keep out debris and protect the user from rotating parts. For long term service life the unit has replaceable brushes.
A hook on the unit allows you to hang the saw when you are not using it. The saw is tough. We threw it around quite a bit with no issues. So if you are looking for a quality deep cut band saw, give the DeWALT DWM120 Deep Cut Band Saw a look. It has a 3 year warranty.
