THE MILL: Our sawmill is a 2019 Wood-Mizer LT70 Super "wide" computer-controlled, hydraulic, diesel-powered bandsaw mill. The blades are 1/10" thick (kerf) which is very thin and maximizes the lumber yield from your valuable logs. Our mill is also equipped with a debarker that cuts a clean channel through the bark, mud, and rocks in advance of the saw blade passing through. There is no need to clean your logs before cutting begins.
Longest log: 20 feet.
Widest cut: 34 inches.
Biggest log: Without any chainsaw work in advance...36" diameter. If your log is bigger than that, no problem, I will use my chainsaw to rip the log lengthwise first and put 1/2 the log on the mill at a time. In this scenario I can cut up to 46" diameter logs.
OUTPUT: Our mill can easily produce 3,000 board feet of lumber in an 8-hour day when two men are
working. Adding additional helping hands and the edger can increase the output above 4,000 board
feet in a day. A large tree with a 3 foot butt can produce 2,500 to 3,000 board feet.
