The SCM Formula S 800P band saw is the second-largest machine of SCM’s band saw series. It is a professional, industrial-grade machine which is not just used for wood but also other materials. It is the larger brother of the Formula S 700P and the smaller sibling of the S 900P.
It is very similar to the S 700P, but is larger in every way. It has a stronger standard motor (4000 W), which can be upgraded to 5500 Watt. It can also support wider and thicker blades, up to 45 mm with 0.7 mm thickness.
The rubber tires around the wheels are attached with a tongue and groove system, making it very easy to replace them. This is much easier than glued on tires which is quite common on band saws.
The flywheels are nearly fully closed and made of cast iron, making them very heavy, which helps to maintain momentum during cutting.
