This is a magnificent tool for precise single-pass cuts in large beams up to 15-3/4". The powerful ZSX Ec/400 can be easily and accurately swiveled up to 60 degrees from side to side, and at only 32 lbs it is the lightest carpentry chain saw on the market.

Like all Mafell portable carpentry saws, the ZSX Ec/400 can also be used with the guide rail system for easy set-up and precise angled cuts. This saw also features automatic chain lubrication with adjustable speed to eliminate oil spillage on the timber.

This Mafell chain beam saw is available with a carbide-tipped chain (Model HM) for the most challenging hard wood applications and with a tool-steel chain (Model Q). The ZSX Ec/400 even has a patented anti-splintering plate to prevent chipping along the cutting edge. Overall, a truly extraordinary tool for your largest timbers!

Peak Framing, Inc would not have been able to construct these 50' long x 8' tall timber trusses made from 12x16 members with precision cuts [photos below] without the Mafell ZSX Ec/400. This tool made a difficult job manageable.

I purchased the Mafell ZSX because I wanted a saw that could handle all of my timber cross cutting and ripping needs with as little rolling and adjusting of heavy timbers as possible. This saw is simply superb. I found that not only does it save time and effort due to its power and massive cutting capacity when working large timbers, it saves time and increases consistency when used to gang cut standard rafters and floor joists.

The Mafell ZSX Ec/400 is a great, solid, versatile machine. I couldn't run my business without it.

I have enjoyed using the Mafell ZSX Ec/400 Beam Saw that I bought from Timberwolf Tools. I have to say I couldn't be happier with the saw. It is a precision tool when cutting large beams, etc. Excellent tool!!!!!

As with all of our Mafell tools, the ZSX beam saw exceeded our expectation. It is truly amazing how clean and precise it cuts. We have tried other brands in the past mainly because of the cost. After purchasing our first Mafell tool, it became clear that the quality and usability of their tools makes it well worth the investment. Mafell is now our first and only choice.
       Rob Harris, Husky Timber
We have found our Mafell tools to be invaluable and part of our brand building to own and use the finest equipment available to deliver a premium product our customers want and deserve. The accuracy, quality, and ease of using tools like our ZSX Ec/400 chain beam saw justifies the investment.

About eight months ago we decided to purchase a Mafell ZSX Ec/400 chain beam saw. The purchase was needed to cut two 8" house frames, which our circular beam saw could not accomplish in one pass. At first it was decided to only use the expensive Mafell chain beam saw on large diameter timber frames and continue to use our 16" circular beam saw for standard frames. What actually happened after we cut the first frame with the Mafell ZSX 400 is we only used the 16" circular saw one time since! After using the Mafell on the two 8" frames, we started to cut a 6" frame with our 16" circular beam saw. After one roof pitch cut on a principle rafter, we put the circular saw back in the tool room and brought out the ZSX 400. When we compared our peak cut with a framing square, our peak cut was off 1/4" from tip to tip, not what we have become accustomed to with the newly purchased Mafell ZSX 400. We have found our timber joint angles to be the most precise ever with the ZSX 400 coupled with the Universal guide. I believe the increased accuracy in our cut frame joints is due to the:
  •  large base plate of the saw, which minimizes and distributes differences in the face of timbers
  •  universal tracking guide (I would like to see Mafell make it with a longer track and larger angled base to make long hip cuts and simple roof pitch cuts on wide timbers.)
  •  angled bar provides leading chain tooth to ease into the cut slowly allowing precise tracking of cut
  •  chain beam saw bar does not deflect under stress from heat caused from work as we have seem with our circular beam saw
Lastly, the customer service and support provided to me by David is the secondary reason I recommend Timberwolf Tools.
