Harvey Tools ALPHA HW615


HW615 15” Industrial Bandsaw

Like many traditional machines, band saws have not changed much over the decades. Harvey decided to redesign band saws with new ideas to raise the standards for band saws. The ALPHA Series HW615 Bandsaw is a direct result of these ideas. The basic concept behind the HW615 is to make a truly heavy-duty, powerful and precise bandsaw which will enable you to do the job with ease and pleasure. 

The HW615 is built with a 3 HP, 220v motor to ensure enough power to undertake any job that a 15” bandsaw can handle; solid, reinforced structural steel frame; premium, heavy-duty cast iron flywheels; unique tool-less upper and lower blade guides; substantial 20”x 20” work table with TiN Coating for rust prevention; extra-large precision high low aluminum fence with solid T-square gliding/locking structure; worm gear system for smooth worktable tilt; dual trunnions for stability; fully enclosed blade guard; and a PS Wood TPC Series blade as standard equipment. All of these add to the precision, smoothness and solid performance and make HW615 a ultimate bandsaw for professional woodworkers.

The position of the fence can be changed to accommodate the size of the work piece. In the vertical position, the fence provides stability for re-sawing applications.

    Rail: the rail has been upgraded to a structural steel tube providing additional strength and rigidity and allowing for more precise settings. The solid T-square structure is easily adjustable and allows the fence to slide smoothly.

    What Our Customers Say

    This saw is a work-horse! I bought it to break down logs for resin projects and absolutely love it. The saw cuts extremely true, great rail, and table tilting has helped me more times that I'd like to mention. A must buy!
    - Bob "Bob's Workshop"
    YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! I have a small garage shop and needed an upgrade for my bandsaw. A friend turned me on to Harvey, and I pulled the trigger on the HW615. HUGE UPGRADE from my Grizzly. I now use the saw to cut back CNC inlays, and re-sawing cutting boards.
    - Stew
    Strong and mighty saw. Worth the investment if you are serious about woodworking.
