Troy, Ohio-based Hobart, a commercial food equipment manufacturer, has announced an enhancement to its 6614 meat saw, adding an integrated meat pusher attachment for increased operator convenience.
The attachment, which is connected to the meat saw, flips out of the way and locks in place when not in use. The pusher plate eliminates the need to handle items close to the blade. The attachment doesn’t require any tools, allowing for disassembly for cleaning and minimal parts for better sanitation. Hobart also offers the integrated meat pusher attachment on its larger 6801 meat saw.
The integrated meat pusher attachment complements other operator convenience features offered by the 6614 meat saw. Upper and lower blade guards protect above and below the cutting zone, while keeping the blade accessible and the movable stainless steel carriage tray includes a stepped front edge and stainless steel ball bearings to ease carriage movement. The tri-rail carriage support assures stability, and Hobart has made a carriage lock standard.
Along with a 3hp motor and direct gear-drive transmission that increases the saw’s durability, the saw includes blade-retaining double-flanged pulleys and a center crown that extends the blade life and maintains its integrity. The pulleys also ensure precision balance and true running of the blade, which operates at 3,500 fpm for fast, accurate cuts and are tool-less for cleaning. The 6614-1IP meat saw’s open-frame construction makes it easy to hose down or power wash.
Adjustable legs allow the operator to adjust the saw height for comfortable use, and Hobart has pivot-mounted the motor, transmission and lower pulley assembly for ease of use. A blade tension control is accessible below the saw’s table to adjust for broad blade length tolerance.
Hobart is part of ITW Food Equipment Group and is a EnergyStar Partner of the Year since 2008.
