The LT70WIDE HEAVY DUTY sawmill was designed by combining the best features of the LT70WIDE model - popular and proven for its sawing head, and the industrial WM4000 - recognized for its heavy-duty bed with Super Hydraulic log handling functions. In this high-production sawmill configuration, timber processing reaches a higher industrial-level of production efficiency and retains the ease of operation of a professional sawmill.
The cutting head in the WIDE configuration is designed to saw logs up to 105 cm in diameter. Now, the sawmillers who require converting larger logs into wider boards can increase the efficiency of sawing by making the boards 86 cm and the cants 78 cm wide. The LT70WIDE HEAVY DUTY blades are 38 mm wide and 5000 mm long. The sawing head features the Electric Blade Guide Arm for securing the blade during sawing through different sizes of logs and the Automatic Blade Lubrication for improved blade performance.
The saw head can be optionally fitted with a debarker – for removing dirt and keeping the blades sharp longer, Laser Sight – showing the precise location where the blade will cut the log next, or Board Return Arms – for transferring freshly sawn boards from the top of the log to the conveyor.
From the Remote Operator Station the sawyer controls the sawing head precisely and comfortably up/down and forward/reverse with variable speed controls. Board thickness is set up only once and the SW10 Setworks, PLC1, PLC2, or Accuset 2 takes care of resetting the head to its starting position automatically after each pass.
