Stationary Log Carriage for 40' Logs - Best Options for a Newbie8/20
Due to the limited options available in Australia I am now looking abroad for suitable alternatives and I would greatly appreciate any advice on the subject and/or directions to acquire what is needed.
The key points are as per the following:-
1.) Australian Recycled Hardwood - very dense HWD such as Ironbark with a Janka Rating of 14-15 (compared to American Oak of 6);
Option #1: Carriage 5 Head Blocks:-
Option #2: Carriage 3 Head Blocks x 2off:-
Option #3: Stationary Hydraulic Log Deck:-
Option #4: Stationary Deck:-
This will not be a high production mill as the posts and beams produced are generally quite varied and specific. However due to the weight and lengths of the logs I will make it all hydraulic/mechanical.
Thanks in advance.
Peterson & Lucas mills can add as many extension as you want. I'd contact them first, if you're leaning toward a circle mill. If you're considering a horizontal band mill, Norwood can be built to any length and is modular, so you can add whatever hydraulics you need.
