Anyone own a shaving mill? I was reading about shortages of and high prices for sawdust and shavings for animal bedding. It seemed to be talking about the western US in particular. I live in the southeast so I was wondering about the market for shavings in my area, and if a shaving mill would give a good return on investment.
I'm here in Oregon and there is a demand, but they want clean ,dry material and thats truck loads. So not much help for the little guy. Most everything is going to co-gen or biofuel. Read today that sawdust in Montana is hitting $100 a ton. Guy might think chipping for hog fuel.
The market is doing well in the southest we are buying a bigger mill so we have a 30 in. salsco for sale. The only problem is that most people don't know what shavings are. They think it's the same as dust or grindings.
I am interested in talk about performance of Salsco machine.Ive had the sales talkbut Im Looking for owner insight.
Dried Shavings in my area are going for $2,000 a truck load while green shavings are going for $1,300. I'd suggest a Jackson Shaving Mill. They've been building them since 1961 and know what they're doing. Plus the knife changing goes a lot quicker and easier with their cartridge system.
our company has just purchased a douglas 40" shaver in b.c. canada. Looking for any ideas for sales. We are very versatile. Will be able to do dry pine, cedar. 3.8 cu. ft. bags. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
I know someone who has a Salsco shaving mill 60'' for sale that was purchased in August 2008. It has less than 900 hours and it is in great condition. Contact me if interested.
We have a small Salsco mill in New England and are having a terrible time selling the product. Everyone seems to have a complaint regardless of what we do. Also having a hard time finding anyone with any ability to correctly sharpen blades. Seems to be one giant headache. Ironic since Salsco is out of CT...
We have found the Kimber Shavings Mills have very high and consistant production and a very good product. The maintance and operations are simple. Before I bought anything I wouold look at the Kimber 2488 or Kimber 4488. The Kimber folks are very knowledgeable in green, dry and bagging operations.
I have a shavings (cedar/pine) mill for sale in Alabama...compete, ready to flip the switch...email of more information.
We are looking to sell our mill, 20" salsco with conveyor set up and sizer.
I have a Jackson 30D10H for sale. 05' model I great shape. Soft starts, conveyors, deck ready to go. FOB GA.
Why are you selling? As someone interested in starting a shavings business, I'm concerned about the amount of used equipment I see for sale.
