The H-28A is fast, with its high speed shuttle feed indexing up to 32″ in a single movement.

The H-28A is an automatic horizontal band saw providing accurate 90° metal cutting for heavy-duty applications.

A 5 HP driven hydraulic pump supplies system pressure through three position directional valves controlling all vising, head up/down, blade tension, guide arm, and shuttle movement.

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

Featuring a 28″ x 28″ capacity, 10 HP motor, and 2″ blade, the H-28A is a reliable choice for all your heavy-duty horizontal metal cutting applications.

H-28A Full Stroking Vises

Full Capacity, Full Stroking Vises

Allow you to operate the vises faster and hold large pieces better. Full height vises allow you to hold large objects more efficiently, like I beams. Full stroking vises mean you don’t have to manually change the position of the vise operator.

H-28A Easy Access Hydraulics

Easy Access Electrical and Hydraulics

A Service Technicians dream, get easy access to both electrical and hydraulics through cabinets on the exterior of the machine – far away from dirty coolant!

H-28A Chip Conveyor

Chip Conveyor

The chip conveyor makes cleaning the machine easier. It removes the chips from the machine while it is running, which is safe for the operator and clean.

S-20 Horizontal Pivot Band Saw Angle Measurement

Two Hand Control

Designed for safety, the two button control on the head and the vises, insures that the operators hands are not in the cutting and vising area during saw operation.
