The 5 HP (3 Kw) motor provides all the power you need to break pork, lamb, veal, or beef all day in a high volume production operation. Heavy duty, stainless steel construction helps the Model 55 hold up under the harshest conditions with minimum maintenance. With the standard front moving carriage and meat gauge plate and 20” H (508mm) by 21” D (533mm) cutting clearance, you can use the same saw to produce retail cuts or split loins and break quarters, which makes the Model 55 unmatched for versatility. Superior BIRO engineering means you’ll have a saw that’s built to last. Over the life of the saw, you’ll get more for your money. As with all BIRO products, if you need a particular modification to fit your application let us know. We’ll try to build it for you – something only BIRO does.
