“Best Buy” TimberKing Sawmill
“We like our TimberKing sawmill, which we bought new about 10 years ago,” says Jack Agnew, Gum Spring, Vairginia. “We’ve put up more than 12,000 square feet of barns and greenhouses on our farms, yet we haven’t spent a penny on lumber for these buildings other than our time and labor and gas to operate the sawmill. It has saved us about $100,000 on lumber at today’s prices.
    “We bought the sawmill after purchasing 140 acres of wooded land that provides us with unlimited timber. It lets us cut logs up to 20 ft. long and 36 in. wide into anything we want.
    “We also use it to custom cut wood for others in our area. Sometimes people will haul in tractor trailers full of logs for us to cut. We keep it in a 6,000 sq. ft. shed that doubles as a work shop, which we built using the sawmill.”
    He says their model 2000 TimberKing is the smallest commercial grade model the company offers, but is plenty big for their needs. The cutting head is supported by 4 posts and rides on 2 tracks, which allows it to cut very precisely.
    He says anyone in the market should look at the company’s new, fully-hydraulic sawmills. “The new mills come with a pair of hydraulic log loading arms and lots of other features including hydraulic blade feed, hydraulic blade up/down, and a hydraulic bi-directional chain log turner that lets you spin the log around without having to grab it with a cant hook,” says Agnew.
