Panther Mill full set up video

Recommended Posts

Panther mills are now out there in the open and folk seem to be enjoying using them! https://www.chainsawbars.co.uk/product-category/panther-chainsaw-mills/

 

Although they come pretty much pre assembled have done a set up video here just in case someone requires it.

 

 

You can buy them here https://www.chainsawbars.co.uk/product-category/panther-chainsaw-mills/

 

So what makes them good? Well quite a few tit bits of info and vids here on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100014846747359

 

But basically we (and Loglogic who build them yes they are UK designed and built) want to end up with the best chainsaw mill that currently exists in the world today.

 

  • The chainsaw fits quickly and easily to the mill - magnets pull the bar in and x2 13mm flanged nuts hold it there. No way the bar can slip and to fix to the mill takes around 40 seconds.
  • Height adjustment works tool lessly with rack and pinion system and takes only 10-15 seconds to adjust.
  • Most components are machined here in the UK by Loglogic specifically for this mill - and we are continuously tweaking and updating them.
  • Winch comes as standard - this takes 80% effort out of milling timber with a chainsaw. We are now looking to tweak this with a new end log anchor and some thinner non stretch line which should further decrease friction and increase control.
  • Better handle and grips.
  • There is a heavy duty first cut system that you can use with the Panther mill or with other mills (but soon we will have additions that hold the Panther off the log which means you can come back down the log on the pushing side of the bar - to my knowledge never been done before - still testing this.....
  • Bars and chains are the best they can be for milling. On the 42" Panther mill this is with a thinner lighter GB lo pro bar running Stihl PMX ripping chain. This gives a smoother faster cut with less strain on the powerhead.
  • On the larger mill are the GB extra long bars (these are made to same spec as harvester bars) running 27RX hyperskip chain which allows chainspeed to be better maintained and less chainsaw bounce and of course a LOT less teeth to sharpen. Cons are - slightly slower cut speed and slightly rougher finish to the plank but a LOT more user friendly on a long bar.

 

 

 

  • Heavy duty first cut system - screw direct onto the log, extend by adding sections or use the stainless brackets to screw into the end of the log for better following the grain (and/or use the brackets for supporting longer lengths)

 

 

  • Finally a vertical set up that slots into the HEAVY first cut system where you can go up one side/down the other AND adjust outwards 8" independantly of the first cut system - we're still working on that but will be out in around 4 weeks or so - most of the components are from the main Panther mill and are used on the vertical attachment which like the main mill bolts to the bar and cannot slip left or right or up or down. It is also captive on the rails AND I have tried it with a winch and makes vertical milling as effortless as horizontal milling.....

Does that mean you will start selling 27rx Rob?

That is very cheap

2 years ago I imported a reel of it from the USA as the only place I could buy it was fuelwood and they want £200+ or something for a 190 link loop or the lucas.

Your selling it cheaper than it cost me imported and delivered and I still had to make the loops up myself.

Make sure the lucas owners know you have it.
