designed for North America, this saw sports either an electric
motor or a diesel engine rated at 33 kW (44.2 HP) with a twist:
using unique hydraulic technology, the diesel engine remains
stationary while driving the sawhead via 2 hydraulic hoses, providing
even-powered motion with no engine vibration transmitted to the
blade. The diesel engine is enclosed in a noise-absorbing housing
for quiet and clean operation.
clamping system, new modular frame.
To maintain equal cutting precision, the log can be clamped
and pulled down on the bed. Exact operation of all clamps is
achieved with only one joystick control. Number and positioning
of squaring arms can be defined by you, the customer.
(700 mm) with a telescopic hydraulic blade tensioning system
which keeps the blade guides closest to the log. Additionally
there is 16 1/2" (42 cm) clearance above the blade for
continous sawing without removal of boards.
diesel tank is strategically placed and easy to fill, saving
time, with large capacity of about 8 US gal (30 L).
- First cut can be made at 34 inches (87 cm) height with
a maximum 3 ft log diameter. The sawhead design sports the
same unique telescopic blade tensioning and blade guide movement
as the big SL series saws. Additionally
the same hydraulic log handling options are available.
- The unique frame is hot dipped galvanized, the remainder
is painted with a powder coat to create a long lasting sawmill
impervious to rain, snow, dirt or salty conditions. You can
saw logs 3 feet (90 cm) in diameter, making the first cut at
34 inches (87 cm) height.
- The optional diesel engine provides hydraulic power to the
sawblade, thus avoiding any kind of vibration, adding to the
extremely accurate cutting precision of this saw.
