Professional hydraulic portable sawmill engineered for performance featuring complete hydraulic log handling, powered saw head controls with setworks, optional wide head, and optional debarker.
- Built in the USA
The LT40 Hydraulic is a professional portable sawmill capable of lasting a lifetime and withstanding generations of sawing. This legendary mill is well known for producing quality timber and turning dreams into reality. Engineered to provide speed and ease of operation, this mill is perfect for sawyers who mean business.
The sawmill is completely portable and ready for road travel with a standard single axle trailer and electric brakes. Six adjustable outriggers allow for quick set-up and simple rough leveling of the bed prior to sawing. The patented open side of the LT40HD sawhead allows for minimal leveling during set-up, easy off-bearing with the trapezoid shaped bed, and sawing of odd shaped logs. All log handling functions are hydraulically driven and controlled from a centralized station at the front of the sawmill.
Loaded and turned hydraulically with loading arms and a steel claw turner, logs are secured onto the bed by four side supports (two hydraulically controlled) and a heavy-duty hydraulic log clamp. Two hydraulic roller toeboards assist with precise leveling of the log on the bed for tapered logs. SimpleSet Setworks and powered head controls position the saw head height to prepare for sawing. With SimpleSet, sawyers can program two exact board thicknesses and SimpleSet will automatically move the head into position for the next cut to produce timber more quickly and accurately. Once the blade is engaged with an auto clutch, the saw head advances through the log with the power feed control that includes variable speed for optimal sawing control. A water tank feeds lubrication directly to the blade to improve cutting performance and keep the blade clean. An optional debarker helps extend blade life between sharpenings by clearing a 6.35 mm wide path in front of the sawmill blade’s cut entry. 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.
