    I am going to be butchering pigs for the first time this summer and I am therefore looking for a vertical meat saw. I was hoping to come across one at a yard sale or auction but I have not and crunch time is coming. I cam across this one http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_48602_48602

    sounds too good to be true. The reviews on their site contradict eachother. ANy one used this one or have any other good suggestions??

    I just did a quick search and found that they have a medium duty one for under $500.

    They also have a toll-free number. If I were you, I'd call them and inquire as to which one works better for cutting a hog down.

    I read the reviews, and would tend to believe the "professionals" when they said it lacked quality, and capacity, as well as had confusing instructions.

    The home folks may be more patient, and one specifically said they were cutting deer... much lighter weight work than cutting a hog.
