The H-26/44 is a semi-automatic horizontal band saw providing accurate 90° metal cutting for heavy-duty applications.

Its 12° degree canted head allows for more efficient cutting and improved blade life. A 5 HP driven hydraulic pump supplies system pressure through three position directional valves controlling all vising, head up/down, blade tension, and guide arm.

HYDMECH’s direct down feed system provides easy adjustment of both head feed rate and cutting pressure.

Featuring a 26″H x 44″W capacity, 20 HP motor, and 2 5/8″ blade, the H-26/44 is a reliable choice for all your heavy-duty horizontal metal cutting applications.

H-26/42 12 Degree Cant Head

12 Degree Canted Head

Its 12° degree canted head allows for more efficient cutting and improved blade life. It allows blade to be more forgiving when making interruptive cuts.

H-26/42 Heavy Duty Construction

Heavy Duty Construction

At over 21,000 lbs, the H-26/44 is extremely well built to withstand the wear and tear of heavy day to day use.

H-26/42 DDF

Electronic Dual Down Feed

Electronic DDF feed is controlled by amperage draw chip load. Head feeding will automatically adjust based on relative chip load. It’s very responsive closed loop system gives better cutting and longer blade life.

S-20 Horizontal Pivot Band Saw Angle Measurement

20 HP True Direct Blade Drive

The Motor and Gear box are bolted together. This results in better transfer of power between the two moving parts. Other benefits include lower maintenance costs, better torque, and less vibration resulting in better blade life.
