The LT70 Super Hydraulic is our fastest portable sawmill ever and is engineered for sawyers that demand high production from a portable sawmill every single day. The LT70 Super Hydraulic is fully-loaded with engine-powered hydraulic log handling and head controls, pedestal remote control station with joystick controls, deluxe board return with outfeed table, debarker, and LubeMizer blade lubrication. The sawmill is completely portable and ready for road travel with a standard single axle trailer and electric brakes. Six fine-adjust outriggers allow for quick set-up and precise 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.
Loaded and turned hydraulically with loading arms and a heavy-duty bi-directional chain log turner, logs are secured onto the bed by four side supports (two hydraulically controlled vertical supports) and a heavy-duty hydraulic log clamp. Two hydraulic roller toeboards assist with precise leveling of the log on the bed for tapered logs. The operator can be set up at either end of the sawmill with the pedestal remote control station. Two joysticks control all head and bed functions of the sawmill including side supports, log clamp, log turner, toeboards, blade guide arm, and debarker. The joysticks can also control additional accessories such as log decks and incline conveyors. Similar to Accuset2 setworks, the control panel calculates board thickness to quickly and accurately position the sawing head automatically for the next cut while maximizing the yield per log. 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. LubeMizer blade lubrication features an adjustable electronic flow controller and pump that applies a special lubricating solution to both sides of the blade in order to melt away sap that can slow down the blade while sawing. Deluxe board return fingers and a 0.9m x 1.5m outfeed table assists with offbearing boards. A 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.
The LT70 Super Hydraulic portable sawmill comes fully assembled with one Wood-Mizer sawmill blade. The LT70 Super Hydraulic is backed by the same legendary service, quality and safety features shared by the entire family of Wood-Mizer wood processing equipment.
