Machine overview

When you sign up, you can:

The Inca Expert 500 is the larger and more powerful brother of the Inca Euro 260, with three wheels instead of two. The three wheels do make saw blades more prone to breaking, due to the higher stress from the tight angles.

Just like its smaller brother, it has a tilting table. The motor delivers 750 (230V version) or 1100 Watt (400V version), making it significantly stronger than the Euro 260.

There was also a sliding table attachment available for the Expert 500.

What we don't like

  • Three wheels means the saw blade has to make a steeper angle, resulting in the blade lasting shorter
  • Quite rare on the second-hand market

What we like

  • Larger throat and table than the Inca Euro 260 band saw
  • Sliding table attachment
  • More powerful than the Euro 260
