The Milwaukee 6238-20 and the BPB180Z by Makita are worth looking into also. Both Milwaukee and Makita are thought to be some of the top manufacturers of premium Band Saws. Both tools are rated highly as well. The Milwaukee received a rating of 4.4/5 as contrasted against the 4.1/5 star rating received by the Makita BPB180Z.

The Milwaukee 6238-20 comes with a few features you wont experience on other similar Band Saws. One example is Plastic / Metal. The Makita BPB180Z by comparison, is very competitive with Makita-built motor delivers faster cutting with 275-530 ft./min. plus 6-setting variable speed control dial enables user to match the speed to the application.
