Title: Turbosawmill in the US
Post by: NZJake on July 08, 2019, 04:12:48 PM
Hi All,

I am after a list of the major timber or farm shows in the US for 2020. Hopefully, the forum has a list here somewhere. Would appreciate it if you could mention some major shows just to make sure I have it on the list.

We are planning to get out there into the US with our products bigtime (looking to attend around 10 shows) in 2020. 

This year we were going to the Shootout but as it's been put off, we've decided to go to the Ozark farm fest (October 4-6) and the Sunbelt Expo (October 15-17).

Our criteria for attending the show is to have an Automated mill ready to cart away. 

We will be offering a 10% discount (on any automated mill) along with training at the show if anyone one is keen to purchase in advance and suggest a major show near them for us to attend.

Thanks.
Jake.

ny farmshow is more inside and less outside since winter in February in NY can be a bit harsh :) Woodmizer is usually setup outside with a booth inside.

I'd love to see a swingblade mill in action near me. I've honestly never seen one, but I'm cutting soem large beams on my Woodmizer that are problematic. A 12" x 28" beam requires a Fir log 32" minimum at the small end. To get a 34' beam requires a 35ish foot log, and that is typically 53" give or take on the fat end. It won't fit through the uprights of my mill, so it requires a lot of trimming, even if I buy top $$ temple logs with minimal taper, they rarely fit.

Seems to me like I could set up a swing blade mill, and saw off a bunch of lumber, flip the log and do it again, and then throw it on the mill to bring it to size. I don't really want a huge breakdown mill, but a swingblade mill that can be set aside when not needed would be a good asset to have around.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for coming back to me. I will check them out. I'm putting a spreadsheet now of a bunch of shows and will have to decide against our schedule.

Keep them coming!

Stuart, yea makes good sense. All you would need is a small manual M6 unit with 13hp. Unless your looking at getting serious.

The M6 sells for $11,800 USD including delivery (all costs covered). We also have a special on the Hobby mill with planer blade and trolley to suit an Alsakan kit for 9K USD. 2 available in our US inventory.

Here is a video:
