Wood-Mizer Introduces LT28 Manual Sawmill

Wood-Mizer recently launched a new portable sawmill — the LT28. It features an 18-hp engine and will cut up to 200 board feet per hour using a manual crank and walk-along cutting technique. The LT28 handles 32" diameter logs up to 21’ long and comes standard with a trailer package.

The optional power feed replaces the manual hand crank feature with an electronic-driven system. This allows sawyers to move the head down the log and back at a faster pace to further increase production. Additionally, the log deck package, which includes manual winch, a log turner, and toeboards, is a labor-saving option to assist in loading, leveling and turning logs.

Tigercat C-Series Feller Bunchers

Tigercat recently released the first run of 860C feller bunchers, phasing out the successful 860/870 series feller bunchers. The new C-series carrier has undergone a ground-up redesign, focusing on improved service access, cooling capacity
and operator comfort.

The new C-series lineup includes the 860C, 870C and L870C feller bunchers, the H860C harvester, S860C shovel logger and D860C delimber carrier — all based on a common platform.

The 860C/870C machines are equipped with a hydraulically driven, automatic variable speed, reversible cooling fan. Because the fan speed is matched to the cooling demand, fuel consumption is reduced and cold weather operation improved. The air intake is at the rear of the machine for reduced debris loading in summer and reduced icing in winter.

The operator's station has been completely redesigned. The full-length front windshield serves as the primary entry/exit.

The C-series carriers are powered by a 280-hp Cummins QSL9 Tier II engine operating at 1,800 rpm for longer engine life. The entire roof enclosure retracts clamshell style, providing full access to the engine. To find out more visit


Multitek TSS16-Way Splitting Wedge System

The Multitek TSS16-Way Splitting Wedge System is a new and revolutionary design for the bundlewood or fireplace wood industry. It is designed to produce a uniform piece of firewood with just one pass through the splitter. The system will eliminate extra manpower required to resplit firewood to size in your operation.

It can be adjusted to each customer ’s needs when it is manufactured. It has no vertical adjustment like the com-pany’s other model. The splitter initially splits the cut round in quarters, then these quarter pieces are pushed through a secondary set of splitter blades. The result is pie shapes on the exterior and squares or rectangles on the interior.

If wood does get jammed or bound up, the operator from his seat can open up the splitter box, then stroke the splitter through a cycle for cleaning the blades of the problem wood.
