Here at Turbosawmill we are pushing the limits of efficiency on our swing blade sawmills. We've got production down to a fine art!
The swing blade edges your timber as you remove each board. Unlike a bandsaw, you don’t have to slab, set aside, and re-saw the edges. The swing blade makes sawing timber extremely easy, simply saw horizontal and finish vertical to produce a board. No secondary edging required.
