Sieg G1 Power Hacksaw: The Introduction
Let’s admit it, cutting large sizes of metal sheets would be very difficult and exhausting with just an ordinary hand-held hacksaw. That’s why every time my buddies ask me for an improved machine that can carry out their manual and time consuming cutting works at home, I always suggest them to try upgrading or investing in a power hacksaw.
Unlike the conventional hand-held hacksaws that we normally see on the market, the power hacksaws are powered by motors to help you quickly finish a great deal of cutting tasks. Now, to give you more details of what this equipment can do and also to help you decide on whether or not you should upgrade to a power hacksaw, I’ll be reviewing one of the best models available on the Australian market today. Here’s my quick look at the features of the Sieg G1 Electric Hacksaw.
Sieg G1 Power Hacksaw: Key Features
Powerful and easy-to-change blades
Yes, when you look at it, the Sieg G1 is pretty much just a simple power hacksaw. But the moment you try it, you will be impressed on its cutting prowess. With its standard 300x25x1.2mm blades that are easy to change, this equipment can cut metal materials up to 130mm in diameter at 170 strokes per minute. Obviously, you cannot easily cut a section this large when using a normal hacksaw. The Sieg G1 is also capable of cutting edges much straighter compared to a band saw.
Auto power off
The Sieg G1, similar to other power hacksaws, comes with an auto stop switch. So, when the cut is finished and the metal material already hits the bottom, the equipment will automatically turn off its power, giving you the freedom to do other interesting things. By the way, speaking of power, the G1 is incorporated with a strong 180W (0.24HP) induction motor.
The vice is an integral part of a power hacksaw’s base since it is the one that holds and locks the material in position. The machine vice of the Sieg G1 is adjustable, so whether you want to cut a simple metal pipe or a large section of metal such as steel, this particular equipment got you covered.
Power hacksaws may seem difficult to utilise, especially for those who are just going to use them for simple household repairs, but I”m telling you, they’re not. The G1 hacksaw model from Sieg is equipped with a large hand grip at the end of its cutting arm, and has a latch added to it to hold it in place. A gas strut is also present, which eases the weight of the cutting arm.

Like any other power hacksaws on the market, this machine actually consumes only a low amount of energy, yet, it can still provide that high performance.
