One of the drawbacks of smaller band saws is the more frequent blade breakage due to metal fatigue. Smaller wheels flex the blade more than larger ones. That may be why we see no new models of 3-wheel band saws.

Then also, you have less throat capacity and less cutting depth. If your “small work” includes holes, a scroll saw may be a good choice.
