Wide capacity saw mill with crank feed, gas/diesel/electric power, 36” log diameter, 17’ 8” log length and production up to 375 bf/hr.
The LT15WIDE is a wide capacity sawmill designed for sawyers looking to maximize sawing capacity while minimizing investment. Engineered to saw up to 3 foot diameter logs economically, the LT15WIDE is part of the popular LT15 sawmill series known throughout the world for its quality, versatility, and affordability.
The LT15WIDE can saw logs up to 36” in diameter by 17’ 8” long with a 35 ½” width of cut. Longer logs can be sawn with optional bed extensions which can extend the sawmill to any required cutting length in 6’ 8” increments. With a heavier and wider bed frame than the standard LT15, the LT15WIDE sawmill bed is made of a robust 2” x 6” box steel frame and features eight adjustable feet for simple rough leveling. Since this mill sits low to the ground, minimal lifting of logs is required.
Loaded and turned manually with a cant hook (sold separately), logs are secured onto the bed by six reinforced side supports all with heavy duty rollers to assist with log turning and two fully adjustable log clamps that tightly clamp the log and allow for cuts within 1” of the bed. To prepare for cutting, head height is precisely positioned by a quick turn of the up/down dial and the blade is effortlessly engaged with a handle. Cutting is accomplished by steadily advancing the sawmill head along the length of the log by turning a low maintenance, hand-crank feed system which runs on a rope instead of a cable. A power feed is available as an optional upgrade. Once the cut is completed, the head is raised up and pulled back and lowered into position for the next cut.
A water tank feeds lubrication directly to the blade to improve cutting performance and keep the blade clean. The adjustable blade guide arm keeps the blade well supported while cutting various sized material. Blade tension is easily adjusted, and keeps the blade at the proper tension for cutting. Wood-Mizer’s wide range of sawmill blades can meet any cutting requirement and deliver maximum log yield and minimal waste of the valuable timber. Additionally, thin-kerf blades require less horsepower or energy consumption, so the smaller power plants emit fewer emissions and require less fuel while still providing sufficient power to cut all wood types.
The LT15WIDE sawmill ships on a single pallet, comes with one Wood-Mizer bandsaw blade, and requires minimal assembly time so you can start sawing within a few hours of receiving your mill. With a 30-day money back guarantee and a 2-year warranty, the LT15WIDE sawmill is backed by the same legendary service, quality and safety features shared by the rest of the family of Wood-Mizer wood processing equipment.
