11 Feb Vekta Razer V5 vs S5
With the US market being flooded by component saws it is important to consider what features you actually need? Are you paying for features that will never be utilized?
The Vekta Razer Linear saw is offered in two distinct models, the Vekta Razer V5 and the Vekta Razer S5.
The V5 is the full-featured version of the Razer saw and is designed to have maximum flexibility and capability. The V5 can perform trench cuts, drilling, miter cuts at various angles, courtesy cuts (shallow cuts on the underside of wall bottom plates on either side of door openings) zero-overcut birdsmouth cuts and several other functions.
Vekta recognizes that many truss plants do not require a number of these abilities. Therefore, the S5 was developed to suit a plant that was primarily interested in cutting common roof truss components and basic, non-raking wall frames. By replacing some of the servo-driven movements with pneumatic actuators and the hydraulic motor with a high power density servo motor for the saw blade itself, the result is a linear saw that is 25% less expensive and features tailored specifically to truss plants- Why should you pay for features which you will never use?
