LEM 688 Meat Saw

With a strong 3/4 horsepower motor, the LEM 688 is a compact meat band saw that will do a lot of work for you at a great price. Its split table gives you a stationary 22-1/2" x 9-1/4" back section and a sliding 22-1/2" x 8" front section. Pieces of meat up to 8" tall can be cut with ease. A 1/2" stainless steel blade makes quick clean cuts through both meat and bone.

The meat saw's adjustable thickness guide lets you cut steaks and roasts whatever size you like, with its 8-1/2" throat clearance (distance from frame to blade.) The meat pushing guide holds meat firmly for smooth, even cuts, and keeps hands safely away from blade. The saw does not ship assembled and disassembles easily for cleaning.

Food contact parts are food-grade stainless steel. 

The bandsaw blade measures 77" x 1/2" and has 5 teeth per inch.

The 688 saw includes one blade. We recommend keeping a couple of extras on hand; they're available under accessories.

  • Lem 688 meat saw
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I really like the meat saw a lot. Cuts excellent. It is kind of difficult to clean up afterwards. But for stability and cutting ability it is perfect.

    First I would like to start by saying your staff is very courteous and helpful. We purchased the LEM meat saw with extra blades and were on a time frame with our processing and you saved us. Our saw arrived on time as promised and worked super. We would suggest your company to anyone that would need your services and as a first time buyer we were very satisfied. Will use you folks in the future for sure. Thank you again....Lincoln R. Huber
