Two Lateral Feed Table Models  ~ 12 Foot  and  20 Foot


A  20 ft. table with optional infeed system, including a scissor lift.


This layout incluldes a scissor lift and a storage chain deck in front of the feed table.This provides a means for the operator to view the lumber as it moves forward, increasing production and allowing some grading of the product. Another option for this system, would be a drop out gate on the head of the chain deck. The gate can be opened, to drop a piece out of the line. The material will drop into a cart or a take away belt. These are options and possibilities for a handling system.

Package Saws

Both Portable and Fixed designs. See some examples in the photo section of this web site.There are a lot of package saw designs on the market. They are not all the same. Check out features when you check out the price. We manufactured our first chain  package saw in 1987.

New Portable saw design is coming.


Wrap Dispensers
