New LX100 sawmill for heavy use released
The LX100 is the first in a new line of Wood-Mizer sawmills, completely redesigned from the ground up based on the feedback and needs of sawyers from all over the world. The LX100 sawmill is built for heavy and continuous sawmilling use and features many innovations in strength, efficiency, ease of use, and operator visibility.
LX100 - New xFRAME design
A new innovation is the rigid xFRAME that holds the control panel, the motor, and the sawmill head. The xFRAME travels on side-by-side tandem steel bars of the bed. The xFRAME allows the operator to stand in a position with better visibility during the cutting process.
LX100 - Operation
The sawmill controls are centrally located on the Operator Control Panel. A wide, easy-grip handle functions as a push bar for the sawmill if purchased without the optional power feed. For faster production, power feed control can be added to precisely control the sawmill speed as it cuts through the log. The power feed system is driven on a heavy-duty chain, faster and more durable than other methods.
No manual cranking is needed to raise or lower the blade position. The up/down switch moves the powered sawmill head into place for the next cut. With the Optional Setworks, just set a board size and with one button, the sawmill repositions automatically for each cut.
Keeping sap and sawdust from building up on the blade is easier with automatic blade lubrication that activates when the blade is engaged, and turns off when the blade stops.
LX100 bed – New design built for extreme endurance
The LX100 bed is an entirely new design that is engineered to withstand continuous and heavy use with thicker steel in the tubes and cross sections. The bed rails are higher than the side tubes, so that it is easy to load logs onto the bed with a forklift, without dropping the logs onto the sawmill.
The LX100 cuts logs up to 70 cm in diameter and of any length by adding additional modular bed sections. The LX series, like all Wood-Mizer sawmills, are produced both in the USA and Europe, and meet all safety requirements for the respective markets.
