  • 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 10×20 can be cut without log turning.
