The SCM Minimax S 600P band saw is the third in SCM’s S400 to S900P band saw series. It is also called the SCM Formula S 600P and Model MM24 in the US. It is the larger brother of the Minimax S 500P. The larger version is the S 700P.
The 600P is nearly identical to the 500P, but larger in almost every way, and can be fitted with a motor as powerful as 7.5HP, making it capable of handling almost anything. Its height capacity is only 370mm, which is somewhat limited for a machine of this size and power. Older versions actually had a height capacity of about 600 mm (see for example this video).
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.
