Professional Hydraulic Portable Sawmill with SimpleSet Powered Head Controls

Engineered for performance with complete hydraulic log handling, easy-to-use powered saw head controls (forward/reverse & up/down), and SimpleSet Setworks, the LT40 hydraulic portable sawmill provides speed and ease of operation for production-minded sawyers. Popular options including Accuset2 Setworks, Stationary Command Control, and Debarker make the LT40 a solid production mill with opportunity to upgrade as your sawmilling needs grow. The LT40 hydraulic 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 leveling of the bed prior to sawing. The patented open side of the LT40 hydraulic sawhead allows for minimal leveling during set-up, easy off-bearing with the trapezoid shaped bed, and sawing of odd shaped logs.

 

Operation

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 while referencing from the previous cut in order to produce lumber more quickly and accurately. Optional Accuset2 Setworks are available to calculate board thickness and reposition the sawing head for optimal accuracy and yield. Once the blade is engaged with an auto clutch toggle switch, the saw head advances through the log with the power feed control that includes variable speed for optimal sawing control. Once the cut is completed, the saw head is raised and reversed by the powered saw head controls and positioned for the next cut. 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 ¼” 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.
