i bought a milwaukee compact saw a few months ago. if you get a deep cut saw you can get a stand to use it as a vertical cut saw. swag offroad sells some nice ones.

It will shut itself off when the piece is cut off.
This one looks almost identical to the harbor fright one. Except cheaper and the 3 speeds are lower ..3/4 hp motor vs. 1hp ??? About the only major difference I can see. May have to check this out for the price.

Broke down and went to TSC and ended up buying the Black Bull bandsaw. It was the last one they had, on clearance $150.

Looks like I'll have to do some tweaking and adjusting to get it to cut square. With the included blade the cut walks. Of course I was trying to cut 4" round pipe The top guide (2nd pic) isn't hitting the blade in the center. Could be the crappy blade Last pic is the bottom guide...actually more centered than it looks.

Was hoping there was more adjustments on the rollers, but for the price I think I can make it work

That saw looks very much like the one I have. To get it to cut straight make sure the blade is tight (loose blade will wriggle and wander), the holder is square with the blade, check to see if the blade travels down straight ( I used a square to check it), keep the guides adjusted as close as you can to the piece your cutting and back off on the down pressure of the blade if it still walks. To check this all out, take a piece of flat plate 1/8" or 1/4" x 3" clamp it vertical with a square line marked on it. If the saw cuts down the line it will cut anything else square. This is all I had to do with mine and it works great. FWIW the blades they come with are crap!!!

I have adjusted guides etc on big Do-all vertical bandsaws at work, so I was more familiar with their setup. I have been cruising youtube and found some good vids on adjusting the harbor fright model....think it's exactly the same. The roller guides are WAY too tight right now. I just gotta line everything up and get a new blade

That's a nice saw. What is that a 8" x 12" cut?

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
