Does anyone have this bandsaw?

We are looking to get a bandsaw for the farm shop. I do enough fabrication for the farm that the steel chop saw isn't good enough when working with thicker metals.
I wasn't looking to spend too much and wondered if anybody had used this one and can offer an opinion. I know HF tools are hit or miss, but this is significantly cheaper than the name brand equivalent.

I bought the Bauer hand held hack saw and it works really well for around $100 or so. Lets me cut anything anywhere as long as it is accessible. I do use cutting oil when cutting although it isn't mentioned anywhere in the manual.

Own the above linked portable band saw. Works great. If the steel is very thick, may have to cut in two different directions.
I have an excuse. CRS.

That's a nice one being cordless. Either one...the portable was the way to go for me...I cut 1/2 steel angle and plate all the time.
