Call for Price

When you have sawing to do, and A LOT of it, the 2000 series of vertical panel saws is the panel saw for you. This is the “tank” of the panel saw line with beefed up features for the most demanding jobs. Designed for industrial operations of cutting 50 or more sheets a week, the 2000 Series Vertical Panel Saw can be called on to get the job done. The hypoid Makita saw is basically a maintenance free worm drive saw that doesn’t need to have the gear box oil changed.



The 2000 series is the workhorse of our vertical panel saw line. It uses steel sleeves over the plastic rollers (like a bullet proof vest) to prevent damage to the rollers from gorillas dropping heavy sheets of material on them. A push button Safety Switch is used on our modified Makita 7.25″ Hypoid saw (because the handle is removed). The hypoid has replaced the old technology of the worm drive skill saw being used on other panel saws. The problem with the worm drive is that is uses oil in a gear box (like your car) to cool the gears and remove metal fragments. The problem with it on a panel saw, the saw is always tilted at 75 degrees so the oil isn’t properly bathing/cooling the gears and very few people actually change the oil, let alone even know the oil needs to be changed periodically. Kind of like driving your car and never changing the oil in it. The Hypoid was designed to give the power of a worm drive but with different materials and gearing mesh cogs so there is no need for oil making it virtually maintenance free.

The 2000 series has the same accessory package as the Varsity and 1000 series including a factory attached folding stand, factory attached frame wheels, spinning insert, an outstanding dust collection package, rip pointers, left and right tapes with a stop that has a strip bar attached.
