From the manufacturer:
The 5801 Meat Saw is rugged, durable and easy to clean. The saw is equipped with a water resistant 3 HP electric motor and direct gear drive transmission that provides a blade speed of 3500 feet per minute. The carriage has stainless steel ball bearings, providing easy travel and dependability. The shaped front edge of the carriage is comfortable to the operators body even when leaned on during movement. The carriage locked is standard. The upper pulley cover and baffle are standard in durable plastic.
Table, carriage, pulleys, guides and wiper assemblies can be quickly removed without tools for ease of cleaning. Moving parts are enclosed but accessible. The blade is guarded above and below the cutting zone. The pusher plate is provided to eliminate the need of handling items close to the blade; it can ride on the right “flanged-end” of the carriage so you keep your hands away from the cutting edge of the blade.
