Looking for recommendations for a resaw specific bandsaw. Is there a solid machine on the market that will handle 18-20” resaw capacity reliably? Moving up from a 17” Grizzly G0513X2 with 12” capacity.

I think your going to be leaving the community of hobbiest or Amateur woodworking. Look to a 36 inch or bigger saw for that.
I can resaw 19 inch on my Aggi I tried it once. It was a piece of 16 quarter Clarowalnut. It did make the cut but still cupped about 1/4 inch.
I already know its best to Resaw wife stuff after it’s been ripped down the middle and join them back.This saves a lot more wood.
For vertical bandsaw the sweet spot for resawing is half the wheels diameter.

STALLION “EU SERIES” HD 20″ X 20″ RESAW BANDSAW

- Andybb

Having never heard of that brand before, how much different is it than a comparable Grizzly, which is ~$1,200 less? Are parts available for them?

Sorry. Just Googled. Never heard of them. You might try starting a topic asking if anyone knows about them.

+1 Seriously large resaw in usually only done it a commercial operation due cost of tools.
Take a look at Wood-mizer, Baker, Weinig, Hitachi, and Makita for commercial resaw examples.

Most volume lumber resaw is done horizontally, although it’s not uncommon to see Hitachi and Makita vertical band saws that can use commercial 2” wide resaw blades show up in used industrial markets and auctions.

Best Luck.
