Portable pto powered sawmillMy portable pto-powered sawmill has more capacity and is heavier-built than sawmills that cost three or four times as much. My portable sawmills start at about $4,000. Many farmers would like to saw their own lumber but they don't know there's an affordable, heavy-built sawmill like mine available. The main frame of the saw is 36 ft. long by 4 ft. wide. It's pto or belt-driven, has a 12-ft. 3-block carriage (can be fitted with a longer 4-block carriage). It'll handle logs up to 30 in. in dia. and up to 20 ft. long.
ft's truly a one-man saw. A hydraulic log lifter eliminates the need for ramps or a loader. The sloping off table lets you saw up a whole log and then stack it rather than having to pull away each board. The saw can be mounted on wheels with adjustable legs so you can move it and set it up again in minutes. (Reuben Kuip, Kulp Enter-prises, Rt. 2, Stratford, Wis. 54484 ph 715 687-2495)
