Timber Production

The 'Unimog' with its 20 tm Hiab crane, complete off-road capability, 6.8 tonne winch on the front and pick-up hitch on the rear, can complete very large log extraction from awkward situations.

With the logs in our yard, they can be stored, or put directly on the mill. Where logs upto 830mm wide and 735mm high can be milled and a length of 6.5 metes can easily be handled.

Then there is the final process of our operation, the air and kiln drying process. It is much more economical for timber to be stored for some time in our air drying sheds or in our external stacking areas. The timber here can have it's moisture content reduced to around 20-25% prior to being dried in our kilns. At present there are two kilns, a WoodMiziser (which can hold 5.1m lengths and around 5m3) and a smaller Sauno kiln (2m lengths and around 0.5m3). Both are electronically operated, but operate through different methods.
