The head of our machine rolls along rigid “L” channel which is bolted to the log deck sides and cross supported with heavy duty laser cut and precision bended cross bunks. These cross bunks supports ensure the weight of the log is dispersed over a large bearing surface to avoid marking the log with indentation. They also provide additional rigidity to the track system. The log deck itself consists of two 2m sections allowing for 3.2m log lengths. Additional 1.6m log decks may be attached to accommodate logs of any length.
The Rhino 500 utilizes 32/35mm x 3670mm x 22mm extra hardened blades which are available through Rhino Band Sawmills. Blade kerf is kept to a minimum at just 2mm to maximize the most amount of lumber per log.
All Rhino sawmill models have been equipped with extra high quality, extra long lasting bearings. Thereby ensuring that you get more life out of your sawmill from the get-go. We don’t cut corners and neither should you.
