I saw lumber and timbers with a Woodmizer LT35 Hydraulic band mill. Woodmizer band mills have a very thin kerf (cut) to help maximize the amount of lumber generated from your logs. I can cut logs up to 21’ long and up to 32” in diameter. I can cut a board or beam up to 23” wide.
When milling at my site I can transport most logs with my logging arch and ATV, JD 750 tractor or 4WD pickup truck. Small, while-you-wait orders can be stacked directly on the client’s truck or trailer as they come off the mill. Customers leaving logs for milling are encouraged to leave a trailer for stacking to prevent double handling of their lumber.
When cutting at a customer’s site the logs need to be staged such that I can roll them directly on to the sawmill arms with a cant hook or peavey hook. Customers who have tractors, skid steers or other material handling equipment available are encouraged to have them handy to help move logs, scrap slabs and sawdust, as necessary, and to move stacks of cut lumber.
