timber harvester sawmill ht3025
« on: September 05, 2021, 01:00:34 PM »
Hey everyone - I just rebuilt a timber harvester 30ht25 and am starting to figure out how to operate it well. I have a couple questions - first when you kick it in to 'fast' engine speed - how do you set that so the speed is right? the engine sometimes bogs down when I get into a cut.
second I am located in pittsburgh but will likely be moving to north Georgia in the near future - any ideas on how to best transport the mill? definitely not leaving it behind - to much blood and sweat invested into it and I am just getting close to the place where I feel confident enough to perhaps start sawing for others.
any help or insight is certainly appreciated

Way to transport.  I have found several old used boat trailers, with and without boats for $50 to $200 single and double axle, any of them would be easy to modify to mount the mill on for travel, most boat trailers have a long tongue  area which makes a sawmill mount easier. The old boat trailers seem to be cheaper than regular utility trailers in my area. I have remanned 4 double and  2 single axle into utility trailers.

Are you referring to the engine speed or the speed of the head (feed rate)? If you want to adjust the speed of the head, there is a brass colored knob that is about the size of a quarter. Its to the right of the letters. Turn it clockwise for slower, the opposite direction for faster.

 With 25 hp your motor will bog down in a wider cut, make sure the governor is opening up when your working it. Steve
