Three wheel bandsaws flex the blade more, in more than one way…

1. They use smaller diameter wheels.
2. They bend the blade around an additional (3rd) wheel.

Every time that blade changes from straight to curved (or back), is taking life out of the blade. And the smaller the wheel diameter, the smaller the bending radius applied to the blade, and then straightened out again as the blade leaves the wheel.
