HYDMECH P225 Manual Pivot Arm Cold Saw

The HYDMECH P225 is a lightweight bench cold saw that is highly portable, which makes it ideal for moving from workstation to workstation. It’s an ideal mobile bench saw that easily enables steel cutting operations in fabrication shops or even on job site.


Features and Benefits

The HYDMECH P225 is a manual, pivot arm bench cold saw that is best suited for small shops. The miter cuts are enabled by the adjustable head that moves 45 degrees left. It has a cast iron frame that is very durable and easily cuts tubing, solids and structural shapes very fast all the while ensuring a smooth, mill-like finish. Its integral coolant system ensures there is lubrication for the blade and material during the cutting process. This is enabled by its flood coolant system with a membrane pump. It has a high quality saw construction which utilizes a bronze worm gear and a hardened ground worm screw gear box that is in an oil bath. It features a 2 1/2’’ round hollow capacity, a 9’’ blade and a 1 HP motor which enables it to perform quick, clean and accurate metal cutting. It achieves blade speeds of around 50 rpm.

Standard features

  • Has a manual saw head movement
  • Has two blade speeds: 30 and 60 rpm
  • Has a robust sawing head
  • Supports the movement of both the head and vise so as to permit lengthwise cuts or slotting
  • Has manual vise with an anti-burr clamp clamping on both sides of the cut.
  • Has a vise quick clamp and a release lever
  • Has a material stop rod to enable multiple cuts of the same length.
  • Has a flood coolant that has an electrical submersible coolant pump.
  • One blade.

Additional options

  • Has a 24’’ material stop bar
  • Has 350 mm cold saw blades
  • Has K40 roller table

Operation Manual


What type of hydraulic oil is used on HYDMECH machines?
Texaco Rando HD46 or equivalent or machines built with Parker or Bosch Rexroth Power Packs use Shell Tellus 22 or equivalent hydraulic oil. The fill level is marked as a black line on the temperature / level gauge.
What hydraulic oil filter is used on HYDMECH saws and how often should it be changed?
HYDMECH uses commercially available filters. When calling to order filters, please refer to the information listed on your current filter to obtain the proper dimensions as different sizes are used. Filters should be changed after the first 50 hours of operation and then every 500 working hours after that.
My saw runs, but I have no hydraulic functions or any pressure showing on the system pressure gauge.
Between the hydraulic pump and motor there is a bell housing containing a three-piece coupling. Inspect the coupling to see if one of the flanges has loosened and slid apart. If it is necessary to re-connect the coupling, use removable Loc-Tite on the set screws, or if the coupling is damaged, it will need to be replaced. With new saw installations, if there is no pressure showing on the system pressure gauge, it is likely that the phase wiring is backwards. Reverse any two of the three phase wires supplying power to the saw.
On my inverter driven machine the blade shuts down and will not restart.
Disconnect the supply voltage to the saw for approximately five minutes. Turn the power back on and try to restart the saw blade. If the alarm or fault code persists, check the led screen on the blade motor inverter drive for the presence of an error code, call the factory with the saw serial number, inverter model number and the error code.
My chip auger has stopped turning on my saw.
The chip auger may be jammed with a thin piece of metal. If you are unable to locate or remove the obstruction, you need to reverse the auger rotation. Lower the head fully down, shut off the hydraulics, and reverse the two conveyor hoses at the hydraulic manifold. Start the hydraulics, raise the head, and switch the head to the down position and the chip conveyor will run in reverse dislodging the piece of metal. Then put the hoses back as they were initially.
