Wood-Mizer Introduces Three Wide Head Sawmills
By Wood-Mizer, Canada
Wood-Mizer, the world’s leading portable sawmill manufacturer, introduces new wide sawmill head options on their high production LT40, LT50 and LT70 hydraulic model portable sawmills. The wide saw head increases the maximum width of cut from 28” (710mm) on the standard models to 34” (860mm) on the wide head models.
The new Wood-Mizer sawmill options increase cutting capacity for mobile sawyers that require extra cutting width. Before now, this expanded width of cut was only available from specialized Wood-Mizer stationary sawmills such as the LT15WIDE sawmill with manual log handling and the industrial-sized WM1000 sawmill.
Cutting Capacity of Wide Head LT40, LT50, and LT70 Sawmills
- 36" (910mm) maximum log diameter
- 34" (860mm) maximum width of cut
- 21' (6.4m) standard log length on LT40/LT50 and 20'2" (6m) on LT70 sawmills
“Wood-Mizer is always committed to providing timber processors with the best available products and features in the industry,” said Darryl Floyd, Wood-Mizer COO. “The new wide head sawmills give our sawyers more capacity for sawing wider slabs without sacrificing needs for mill mobility or lumber production.”
The wide head option is currently available on new sawmills ordered in North and South America. Contact your local Wood-Mizer representative to order.
