The LT40 Super Hydraulic is a high-performance portable sawmill capable of lasting a lifetime and withstanding generations of sawing. Packed with high performance features, this sawmill is designed for production-minded sawyers. The LT40 Super Hydraulic comes with Accuset 2 Setworks, auto board return arm with outfeed table, faster sawhead with power feed motor, and hydraulic log handling which is twice the speed of the standard LT40 Hydraulic sawmill.
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 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. Accuset2 Setworks and powered head controls position the saw head height to prepare for sawing. Accuset2 calculates board thickness to quickly and accurately reposition the sawing head automatically for the next cut. 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. The power feed includes an individual motor that delivers greater forward/reverse head speeds for increased performance. A water tank feeds lubrication directly to the blade to improve cutting performance and keep the blade clean. An auto board return arm and 0.6m x 0.6m outfeed table assists with offbearing boards. An optional debarker helps extend blade life between sharpenings by clearing a 6.4mm 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.
