In the test the Batavia diving saw T-Raxx: test

T-RAXX - a name that is reminiscent of the dangerous dinosaur T-Rex and probably should also remember. And indeed, Batavia also uses the image of a T-Rex in the logo of the machine. "Why" should be clear: the T-Rex stands for a gluttonous predator with an enormous biting power. Similar properties should be awarded to the diving saw T-RAXX. If this is really the case, our test report will show.

We took a close look at the Batavia T-RAXX and tested it. The first impression in the space-saving aluminum case already makes something and lets hope for a high quality product. We are curious if the saying "outside hui, inside pfui" counts or even more behind the beautiful packaging.

Additionally in use: the matching guide rail from Batavia, which even finds its place in three parts.

A manual that also explains the accessories

In the test the Batavia diving saw T-Raxx: rail

A user manual should give instructions for use. That's exactly what she does. Although compulsory safety information is and must be important, Batavia does not overdo it with four pages.

The properties of the T-RAXX are given and explained below. It not only tells you that the submersible saw has a soft start, a current limit and a constant speed, but also "why". Also, the explanations of what speed is used for what, are very helpful.

Subsequently, the individual functions and setting options are described. Everything easy to understand and with small pictures.

Who is wrong for further accessories, As for example guide rails or the rip fence has been decided, here also finds information about use and equipment. The instruction manual does not seem overloaded and informs concisely and objectively.

A suitcase for the T-Raxx - space saving and noble

all necessary information

The packaging of the T-RAXX is exactly fitting and really noble. As outer packaging, there is a box that shows everything necessary and encloses the actual case. No resources are wasted here and even the case handle is used for carrying.

The suitcase itself leaves a noble impression and does not use more space than necessary. The inner life is perfect and the saw is easy to use. In addition, it offers easy-to-use and lockable closures.

Desirable would be a holder for a replacement saw blade. As a small improvement could attach the not quite central handle, through which the case tends to wear when carrying something, which does not limit the benefits.

The first impression leaves hardly any questions and wishes unfulfilled

The first glance at the Batavia T-RAXX shows a lot of levers, clamps and settings and the desire for the manual comes up. After a closer look, however, much can be explained by itself and the first functions can be examined.

slightly stowed handle

It is striking that the T-RAXX despite the heavy impression amazing good in the hand and not as difficult as expected. The switch-on lock is still a bit stiff, but the saw can easily lead to immersion and returns alone to their original position.

There is also one for an exact immersion depth easy to read scale, as for setting the miter angle. How exactly they work, the later practical test will show.

Interesting is a small lever on the upper handle, whose exact function explains the manual and is quite convenient. Three settings regulate the immersion depth and allow the normal dip saw function, a 2 mm deep cut-off or an automatic locking mechanism for changing the saw blade.

This feature will be tested immediately and The lock proves to be very handy. The immersion depth is held exactly so that the clamping screw can be loosened easily. The easily accessible spindle lock also supports one Saw blade change in 50 seconds.

Cutting depth adjustment

In addition, we discover on the base plate two clamping screws for a rip fence, which but unfortunately not included. However, a diving saw is predestined for the use of a guide rail, which we also use and for what there are more levers and locking buttons. But more on that later.

The cable length is with 3 m well sized and leaves enough room for maneuver. The T-RAXX also leaves room for maneuver in woodworking and the associated speed. About a rotary switch can be the Speed ​​between 2000 - 5300 min-1 regulate and the electronics also ensures a constant speed on average.

Likewise, the electronics regulates the Smooth start and protects the saw from overheating. A current limit completes the full wave electronics and thus the very good features.

Striking is the slightly angled vacuum cleaner connection, but which makes sense. On the one hand, it allows working close to the edge and, on the other hand, it guides the hose in the direction of the operator, who is in front of the clippings.

So the suction hose is not in the way and is led away from the machine. An additional contra-angle allows further alignment and use of other tube sizes.

Before it goes to the first saw cuts, it can be said that the first impression is very positive. Everything looks high-quality and neither the ease of use, nor the technical equipment leaves nothing to be desired. The Batavia T-RAXX submersible saw scores points in this area.

A practical test with power

Plug into the socket and a first (gentle) start. The term soft start is not exaggerated - with 4 seconds to the maximum speed, the start-up time may be a bit too "gentle".

Cut through 40 mm kitchen worktop

Especially when the workshop vacuum cleaner starts at the same time, the very quiet T-RAXX is quickly overruled and the soft start underestimated.

With regular use However, the habit will stop and the delay will hardly be noticed.

The first Test cuts in 18 mm and 30 mm laminated wood, as well as one 40 mm kitchen worktop Do not impress the T-RAXX in the least. Us already! The performance limit is still far off and the cuts look absolutely clean.

Checking the cutting angle also confirms the statement in the operating instructions: "The cutting accuracy for straight cuts (90° cuts) is set at the factory." She is very accurate and a possible correction is not necessary.

We are also impressed by the clear chip stain on the work clothing. In general, although a corresponding suction should be used, but even without the saw cut remains clean and a very large part of the chips is transported through the suction connection.

Here already a simple chip collecting device would be very good services. With an attached workshop vacuum, the power naturally increases and the chip extraction is perfected. The enclosed angle adapter also fits the suction fitting of a Bosch All-purpose vacuum cleaner.

In order to check the accuracy of the angle adjustment, a board with a set miter of 45° is sawn and the two boards are held upside down. If there is an angle error here, it doubles and becomes clearly visible.

Not so with the Batavia T-RAXX. The set angle of 45° is executed correctly; placed one another results in an exact right angle.

In contrast, the depth of cut adjustment can not shine with an exact value. The cutting depth is about 1.5 mm less than set. In contrast, the rail compensation lever proves to be very practical.

This corrects the depth of cut when using a guide rail and no calculations are required for the depth of cut when using a guide rail.

Whether with or without a guide rail, the Batavia T-RAXX is easy to guide and cuts very clean. In the test, a missing piece of worktop in the workbench could be fitted perfectly.

Batavia T-Raxx on the guide rail

Only on a guide rail a diving saw unfolds its real advantages. So too the T-Raxx, which is well prepared for it.

  • The rail lock ensures that the saw can not be lifted out of the rail at the front.
  • Two fine adjustment screws Correct minimal play in the guide rail and allow the T-Raxx to slide through the rail without play.
  • The kickback stop prevents the saw from moving backwards in the guide rail. To set up the kickback stop can also manually disable.

The guide rail itself consists of three parts of 33.3 each cm and thus has a total length of one meter. Advantage of the short pieces is the possibility to store them including the saw in the case.

For this purpose, the individual pieces must be distributed on the floor and on the side - but it fits and saves additional packaging. A disadvantage of several parts is of course an increase in the error potential.

The connectors of rail pieces have a little play and the rails are not placed upright on a flat surface when connecting, inaccuracies can creep in. Slightly longer connectors could counteract this.

The function does not affect the three parts. For long cuts no jerking is felt at the joints. The T-Raxx slides cleanly through all three parts with a setting of the fine adjustment screws and delivers an absolutely exact result.

Conclusion - the diving saw Batavia T-RAXX plays in the upper league

Our conclusion is clear: The Batavia T-Raxx can be classified in the professional diving saws. With enough power, high-quality workmanship and exclusive equipment in the price range, it delivers perfect results. Practical is the sturdy case made of aluminum, in which the three-piece guide rail finds space.

Whether with or without guide rail: the T-RAXX is easy to guide and to immerse in a sensitive way. The cutting angle adjustment works absolutely exactly and the chip extraction delivers very good results.

In the test the Batavia diving saw T-Raxx: test

The shortcoming of the incorrect cut depth setting is quickly forgotten in the overall impression and the Batavia T-Raxx convinced beyond the first impression. The optional accessories include a three-piece guide rail, clamp clamps, and a parallel and a miter fence. This should protect every workspace.

For this test result we give the Batavia T-RAXX five out of five stars. Congratulations!
