The D&L SWING BLADE houses the 180 degree swinging saw giving it many advantages over a 90 degree swing:

  • Saw guards swing with the saw protecting the operator at all times
  • Double cutting is easy
  • Guards remain in place at all times.
  • The head does not have to be removed and turned 180 degrees to cut back.
  • Operator can cut from either side of the log.
  • Large beams up to a 8×16 can be cut without log turning.

Design

The D&L SWING BLADE has been designed to reduce down time waiting for replacement parts. D&L has made every effort to incorporate use of “off-the-shelf” parts to make repair and replacement quick, easy and affordable.
