The Rhino 700 is Rhino’s flagship sawmill and most popular machine. This powerful mill consistently exceeds expectations and has proven its strength and long term reliability countless times in the tough and demanding production environments here in Africa. The Rhino 700 is suitable for large scale production and will comfortably cut medium and hard woods.

The standard Rhino 700 model can cut log lengths up to 4.2m, but this length can easily be increased by adding additional bed sections of 2m. The maximum log diameter is 800mm. All petrol models are equipped with powerful 27hp / 20kw engines, while electric models have 15hp / 11kw motors.

All major steel components feature a powder coated , galvanized and have a stainless steel finish ensuring your mill will stand up to nature’s elements. We recommend covering your sawmill when not in use, but if you forget it’s good to know that it will endure nature.


The mill is capable of cutting 800mm diameter logs up to 4.8m long. Additional log deck sections are available in 2m lengths. Capable of squaring cants at 800mm or skimming veneers at as thin as 1.5mm. The Rhino 700 will cut within 25mm of the deck ensuring you maximize your usable board foot output.


The Rhino 700 are powered by 27HP Kohler electric start gas engine. It features V-Twin OHV Technology and Dura-Bore Cast Iron Cylinder Sleeves.
All of this give superior balance, low vibration, lower emissions, improved valve life, better fuel economy and higher HP/Weight. It comes with a three year commercial engine warranty for all applications. Attached to the engine is an industrial centrifugal clutch system which offers “gas and go” efficiency and ease.

Track System

The head of our machine rolls along rigid 75mm x 45mm x 8mm “L” channel which is bolted to the log deck sides and cross supported with heavy duty 920mm x 190mm 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 three 2m sections allowing for 4.8m log lengths. Additional 2m log decks may be attached to accommodate logs of any length.


The Rhino 700 utilizes 32/35mm x 4000mm x 22mm double 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.
