Foley Belsaw M14 for sale
« on: February 21, 2018, 08:18:11 PM »
I've got a Foley Belsaw M14 for sale. I am the original owner and bought it new in 1984. This is a working saw and not a project. It is ready to make lumber today. 

It has a good running Deutz 6 cylinder, air cooled diesel for power with a Twin Disc PTO clutch. It is an 8" flat belt drive, or alternately can be run off of a tractor PTO. 

It comes with 3 saws, a 48", a 40" and a 36". All are inserted tooth saws in good shape. I'll include an Andrus saw sharpener, wrenches for changing the bits and whatever spare bits and shanks I've got. 

It's a great running little mill and you can see it saw prior to purchasing. I'll help dismantle and can load on a trailer for you. Can be taken apart in an afternoon.

I'm located in Butler, Tennessee,  about as far northeast as you can get in Tennessee. Just a few minutes from the Virginia and the North Carolina lines. 

I'm asking $3500.

I'm going to miss it, but I just bought a Timberking 1600 to replace it. I need portability and safety for the grandsons.

Oh Boy!   I'd be all over that if it was closer and I lived closer to my U.P. property. As an old circle mill sawyer, that looks so welcoming. :)

If you do not mind, how far is it from the engine pulley, to the mill pulley with that setup.
That is very similar to How Trapper John was setting his mill up.

You could have some fun with it, for sure. But, you'd probably miss your "crew" and it might remind you why you retired.  :D

There's 40' of track, so the pulley to pulley distance would end up about 24 feet, give or take.

It's not a Corley #5, but it'll still put out a lot of lumber. ;D

Thanks, that is a nice looking setup. If it was up here, I even know a guy who may be interested.
