Logosol M8 — The Swedish Portable Sawmill
With the Logosol Sawmill M8 you can quickly produce high-class planks and boards from your logs, in the length and dimensions of your choice. The sawmill is simple to use — and easy to own.
If you have not cut timber before, the M8 is the perfect choice. You will quickly get started and the sawmill is very easy to use. The first day you will already have produced a good-sized stack of planks and boards. Visible scales and the possibility of sawing in fixed steps make setting quick and accurate. Everything is clearly described in the book that comes with every sawmill.
The accuracy is impressive, no matter if you are sawing boards for panelling or squared logs for building log houses. The M8 can cut all sorts of wood both from the forest and the garden: oak, aspen, juniper, apple tree, cherry tree, larch. The list goes on.
The sawmill is built of strong, anodized aluminium, a material that gives it fantastic qualities. Besides being forever rustproof and storable outdoors, it is so strong and rigid that it can easily take large-diameter logs. At the same time it is so lightweight that you can lift and move it by hand. The coating of the sawmill gives a fine and dirt-repellent surface, which also prevents snow and ice from sticking to the sawmill. The sawmill is almost maintenance free, and it will work when you need it, for decades.
The log ramps and the log beds with integrated winches enable you to cut timber without much effort. The log comes up to a level that makes it comfortable for you to secure it on the sawmill. The compact design makes it even easier when the log is to be turned over, since you then can come close to the sawmill and have a good working posture. But another feature that is just as important for your convenience is that the boards come at an easily accessible waist level, making them easy to lift from the sawmill.
In other words, the Logosol Sawmill not only saves your time, but also spares your back.
Fixed log supports are fitted at an exact angle to the log beds. The fixed supports save time, as they never require resetting between the saw cuts, and you do not have to adjust the log clamps. This gives you even better accuracy, as the log that is sawn into boards is supported from the log bed and up to the topside.
In addition, the design of the sawmill makes it suitable for sawing in the winter. All important functions of the sawmill are raised from the snow cover and the sawdust is thrown out away from the sawing spot. This is an important quality in the winter, since sawdust acts as a reinforcement and makes the snow hard as stone. When you have finished you can easily move the sawmill from the spot.
Many of our customers have their sawmill for stationary use. You can also take your sawmill with you and put it up on the spot where the logs are, in the forest, on your backyard, or anywhere else.
The Logosol Sawmill is easiest powered by an ordinary chainsaw. The typical saw unit is a Stihl MS660, which with its seven horsepower and thin guide bar cuts the timber quickly and gives a fine and smooth sawn surface. With such equipment you can saw five metres a minute from a 15 cm (6″) thick squared log. The big electric saw unit, Logosol E8000, with automatic feeding, doubles the speed, and with the bandsaw you can even saw 15 m/min (50 ft/min).
But technical data is one thing, working in practise is another. The timber is not only to be sawn up; it should also be stacked. In addition, new logs need to be rolled to the sawmill and, above all, you need a coffee break now and then. We who use the sawmill can from experience say that we produce between two and four cubic metres (850-1700 board feet) sawn timber in one working day, and if you get help from a friend you will produce even more.
You will appreciate the feeling you get by working with quality timber that you have sawn yourself. With the Logosol Sawmill M8, it becomes a pleasure to cut it from your own trees.
The best thing we can give to you who have recently become a sawmill owner, is probably the job satisfaction and pride you will feel when you have finished your first project. This is an investment that you will not regret, and that is part of the warranty!
