For sawmillers who need more capacity, the LT70 is now available with a WIDE head to cut larger logs, wider boards and wider cants. The WIDE saw head increases the maximum width of cut to 86cm.

In addition, the LT70 can now be configured with WIDE non-belted blade wheels to run WIDE 50mm blades. The wider blade wheels and 50mm blades can be ordered for either the regular head width or the WIDE head.

The new Wood-Mizer sawmill options increase cutting capacity for sawyers that require extra cutting widths and wideband sawing performance.

“Wood-Mizer is always committed to providing timber processors with the best available products and features in the industry,” says Robert Baginski, president of Wood-Mizer Industries. “The new LT70 WIDE gives customers more capacity for sawing wider timber, while being able to achieve production results that are expected from more expensive wideband sawmills.”

Cutting capacity of the LT70 WIDE Sawmill:

  • 105cm maximum log diameter
  • 86cm maximum cut width
  • 78cm maximum cant width
  • Log length depends on the bed length:
    • 4.8m – S bed
    • 6.1m – M bed
    • 8.4m – L bed
