Three choices of power source are available, Tractor PTO driven units have a Cat 1/2 three point linkage and four substantial feet. Electric powered units either 3hp single phase or 5.5hp three phase have convenient wheels and handles to allow for easy movement and storage.
A sturdy and solid chassis with easy action pivoting bench gives an effective and natural working motion for high speed cutting and maximum output. An extending log support combined with steel and plastic rollers means logs move up the bench with the minimum of effort.
All machines now feature an emergency stop button which when activated disengages the blades drive and brakes it to a stop with immediate effect, a complete guard over the saw blade eliminates the possibility of material being thrown in the operators face or body and a release latch prevents the bench from moving and the saw blade being exposed accidentally.
