Sawmills?

Recommended Posts

We are in the process of sourcing a new mill. We currently have the Norwood HD36 and although it's a good mill it's not really quick enough or big enough for the way we're going.

I've been looking at various makes and I'm curious on what other people's thoughts are.

I'm wanting a 3phase fully hydraulic mill - have been looking at the woodmizers LT 70 but they are big money - has anyone got one of these?

Also what's your thoughts on Trak met saws.

 

Any advise is greatly appreciated

 

Thanks Grant

I'm in a similar boat, currently using a 6'6 dia bladed rack with a 30 foot table, not cutting all the time, usually a fill in over wwinter, mainly beaming and planking oak for air dry/ historic building repairs, I'd like a wide blade quicker horizontal band mill, but at what cost? I've seen a few mizers and impressed in pine saw logs but not really with narrow bands through large dia hardwoods like we have to deal with.... any thoughts? best so far was a tom sawyer but again older tech. and like hens teeth to buy and hold their money.
