Wadkin BSS Power Feed Sawbench

Here for the first time is a power feed sawbench specifically engineered to bring all the economy of power ripsawing as a cost that is little more than for a pushbench.

In this case ripping speeds up to 45.7 metres per minute (150 feet per minute) are obtained from a simple yet extremely efficient power feed unit designed as an integral part of the machine. The unit is powerful enough to feed any class of timber up to 125 mm (5 in) deep and produce sawing to a high standard of accuracy.


Rise and fall saw, table 1065 x 990 mm (42" x 39").  Six feed speeds 8.5 - 45.7 m/min (28 - 150 fpm).  Two motors (8.62 kW (11.5 HP) to the saw spindle)  (3 phase).  Capacity when hand feeding: 505 mm (20") max saw to fence, cuts 180 mm (7") deep.  Capacity when power feeding: 200 mm (8") max saw to fence, cuts 125 mm (5") deep.

Factory Rebuilt

Factory remanufactured equipment from Wadkin is of the very highest standards. Each machine is stripped down to from the cutting edge to the machine frame and then reassembled with any worn or defective parts replaced, beds reground, all health and safety aspects fully adhered too and repainted inside and out (in any livery you choose). After comprehensive testing the result is virtually indistinguishable from new.
