It probably doesn’t have enough resaw capability to be able to do what you want. That has to do with HP and blade capabilities mostly.

Mine says it’s 1 1/8HP but seriously, that is at what they call Locked Rotor draw.
Mine is probably closer to 1/2 or 3/4HP.

Anything less than that will make it almost painful to do resaws at 6” with.
