Bahco Bowsaws


Bahco Bowsaws




Bahco has manufactured saws for more than 130 years in the world's largest handsaw factory in Sweden.

Ergonomic bowsaws
Continuous development work, in close co-operation with professional experts, is a vital ingredient in the quest for developing new and better saws and Bahco is a world leader in the manufacture and supply of premium bowsaw blades.

  • Bahco ERGO bowsaws are made from high quality steel and protected by a coating of high-impact enamel paint.


  • The Ergonomic, integrated handle makes sawing effortless and comfortable at the same time.


  • The innovative, easy-to-use tension mechanism allows for maximum tension and safe handling. This high blade tension, up to 120kp, is critical for best performance and straight cutting.


  • The virtually unbreakable hand guard makes knuckle and hand injuries a thing of the past.


On the FORCE bowsaw range the changing of the blade is made very simple by following 3 simple steps :



# 1. - Loosen the blade with the special nut,










# 2. - Remove the old / blunt blade,










# 3. - When the new blade is in place, tighten the mechanism to the maximum tension and you are ready to go.






* This tension mechanism is only available on the ERGO Force bowsaws, which are available in 530mm, 600mm and 750mm lengths.



Bahco bowsaws are also available in an economy range.
These bowsaws are manufactured from lighter metal tube than the FORCE range but still have the same high quality blade that Bahco is famous for.

The best quality blade is essential for successful cutting.


The saws are available in all 4 common lengths :

530mm600mm750mm900mm

and are fitted with "type 51" blades which are used for effortless cutting of both dry and green wood. A plastic knuckle protector is also supplied.
