The LX450 Hydraulic is a twin-rail portable sawmill engineered for high-production sawyers who prefer a twin-rail sawmill design. With many of the proven, robust features of the Wood-Mizer LT50 sawmill model, the LX450 is designed with a rigid LXFrame sawhead tower that travels on parallel hardened steel bars and holds the sturdy sawmill head and control panel which is on an adjustable arm for optimal visibility. The sawmill is completely portable and ready for road travel with a standard single axle trailer and electric brakes. Six fine-adjust outriggers and bubble levels on the head and mast assist with set-up and leveling of the bed prior to sawing. 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 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. 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. Material dragback fingers and a 0.6m x 0.6m outfeed table assists with offbearing boards. An optional debarker helps extend blade life between sharpenings by clearing a 6.3mm 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 LX450 Twin Rail Hydraulic portable sawmill comes fully assembled with one Wood-Mizer sawmill blade. The LX450 Twin Rail Hydraulic is backed by the same legendary service, quality and safety features shared by the entire family of Wood-Mizer wood processing equipment.
