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 (13.7 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.
The back-toothed blade facilitates retraction from the cut, which is especially easy if the blade is locked by the mechanical brake.
With a spring-mounted and tensioned idler wheel, changing blades is an easy and quick procedure.
With voltage loss switch for protection against uncontrolled reconnection after a power interruption.
The unique tilting blade guide allows right-angle cuts to be made up to 90 mm (3 9/16 in.) deep without the opposite side of the blade touching the wood, e.g. when cutting lapped joints.
