Small Meat Saws

I understand that the Hobart is well liked. But I'm looking for a bandsaw that is smaller with either a very small floor footprint or a table top unit. This would be fairly light duty on pork. The primary function would be de-chining, cutting pork chops and cutting trotters to short lengths.

Does anyone have experience with the "German Knife GBS-230A"? Are they any good?

What about the Biro 22SS?

Other brands and models of small meat bandsaws?

Ideally I would like all stainless steel and quality.

This will be for use under USDA inspection.

Cheers,

I have bought a lot of equipment over the years from Grizzly and they did have a meat saw the last time I saw. You might check them out, their prices are very reasonable.

Thanks, Fred. I'll check out their web site. I'm not familiar with them, yet. Maybe there's a Grizzly in my future.

I've known quite a few cabinet shops who use their woodworking machines and even a few machine shops that have their lathes and mills. Decent stuff for the price. I haven't seen their meat saws, but would expect the same......

You might check out the Sausage Maker site. I have been happy with my dealings with them.

Here's a stainless model: http://www.sausagemaker.com/31813hakkabrotherjg210abandsaw.aspx

I believe that inspectors are usually happier when they see stainless.
