built aluminum Band Saws for Intricate Details on BIG Timbers
Falberg three-wheeled portable timber band saws are currently the only portable band saws you can get with enough cut depth to handle 18” thick timbers. With a throat width of 18” they're also the only portable band saws that can maneuver around complex details in big timbers. Everything about working with big timbers demands better performance than you'll get with the little die cast two-wheeler.
New Saws - Old Designs
Obviously, there's been no research or development in the field of band saws for a couple hundred years.
How different is this from this?
Compare those to the Falberg Corbel King which weighs barely 100 pounds yet has more than twice the throat area. If you take the time to visit our web pages you'll learn how wheels, frames, tensioners, and tracking assemblies make those impossible cuts easy and you'll see what a dynamic tool your band saw can be when it's design is allowed to evolve with constant experimentation and field testing.
Falberg Saws does make a less expensive two-wheeled portable timber band saw with an 8”W x 12”D throat called the Elf but we quit stocking them when it became obvious that, no matter how superior it was too noisy little die-cast imports, it couldn't compete with our own three-wheeled Titan with three times the throat area. Once a customer finds the Titan, they lose interest in the other choices. (Why are band saws named by their wheel diameter and not their throat area; as in W” x H” =A”) When you compare our saws in terms of prices per square inch, Titan wins every time.
With all the experience gained from designing and redesigning band saws from scratch to serve a variety of functions we are now in a unique position to design and build band saws for functions other than timber framing or millwork. With another blade, Falberg saws can be configured to cut metal or whatever else you might have. If our stock timber saws aren't what you were looking for, you should ask what we can do to satisfy your unique application. We love those kinds of challenges because every time we do one, we learn new tricks that apply to all our saws. Check out our Custom Saws and Industrial Applications page for samples of some other bizarre custom saws we've built.
You'll also see why nobody ever sells their used Falberg saw.
They pay for themselves over and over and over again; year after year.
