Turns Logs Into Money
"It has the fastest payback of any equipment that I know of," says Mike King, manufacturer of the new "go anywhere" Utilizer sawmill. "At full use, it can pay for itself in just 18 days of sawing."
The pto-driven Utilizer mounts on any 3 pt. hitch tractor and thus will go anywhere the tractor will go. "It's called the Utilizer because it can saw treetops and small logs that would otherwise be left in the woods," explains King, who heads Utilizer Sawmills, at Scottsburg, Ind.
The standard model handles logs up to 141/2 ft. long and is equipped with a 34 in, dia. blade. It operates on a 45 hp, or larger tractor. For larger capacity, customers can choose a 36 in. dia. blade and a platform that takes logs up to 161/2 ft. long. The bigger blade requires a 60 hp, tractor.
Cost of the mill with 34 in. blade is $5,820. A sawdust blower at $465, a 2 ft. extension for bigger logs at $275, and a steel deck with adjustable legs at $335 are some of the extras. A power shaft to adapt the rig to a stationary electric motor costs $425. Utilizer Sawmills also offers a leasepurchase plan for 38, 48 or 60 months.
