Out here hauling lumber is impractical as the only time it could be done is winter. Our practical solution was to purchase a sawmill and even though it took a lot of work and many hours we finally got it out here and have put it to work.
This sawmill is a workhorse and very economical to run as it will run for 8 hours on 2 gallons of gas. With all the trees we have here (many standing dead or laying on top of each other from a windstorm many years ago) having a sawmill just makes sense.
Here is a video of the sawmill running. It can be ran by one man but is much quicker when 2 are working together cutting and stacking.
Mike and Papa Fred Milling Lumber
We have used the woodmizer15 to mill lumber for our cabin, outbuildings and even furniture.
Everything here at Two Moose is a family affair. We are so very blessed to live in this beautiful country.
