The Z 5 Ec portable bandsaw is the innovative successor to the legendary Z 3. Owing to a new, high-output motor and magnesium die-cast components, its persuasive benefits includes reduced weight (13.6 kg / 30.2 lbs), enhanced performance, higher torque and excellent handling. Exclusive with ball bearing saw band guidance for excellent band running and thus for optimum cutting. Maximum 8 mm (5/16 in.) saw bands for optimum flexibility when curving and profiling purlins and rafters. The Z 5 Ec offers an impressive cutting depth of 305 mm (12 in.). The precision that typifies MAFELL portable bandsaw enables the Z 5 Ec to execute extremely clean and perfectly square cuts. The cooling air of the high-performance motor is utilized to blow away dust from the mark. As a consequence, chips are kept well away from your head and you maintain a clear view of the mark at all times.
