Pat Mooney’s Pro Pegasus DS mitre semi-automatic saws feature 1 1/4"-wide saw blades. According to the company, these precision, gear-drive saws provide 40 percent greater beam strength than saws with 1"-wide saw blades,resulting in faster, more accurate sawing. An electronic display of the cutting angle also enhances precision and reduces operator setup errors.
The saw performs semi-automatic operations, including positive hydraulic cutting control, hydraulic clamping and auto return of the saw head after the cutting cycle. Its swivel-saw head mitre cuts to 60 degrees on both the left and the right, rotating via a rack and pinion system.
Other features include a solid machine base with locking cabinet, precision carbide blade guides with roller guides and case-hardened and ground helical gears. Infinitely variable blade speeds from 50 to 400 fpm are controlled via the saw’s inverter. Cutting capacities are 12 1/2" × 20".
