  • Sure, we do not produce the large numbers as those imported, BUT it is manufactured and designed by South Africans for African conditions.
  • Band saw has proved to be most reliable because we do not have all the fancy electronics which constantly are prone to problems!
  • Mission and aim is to be a leading manufacturer of band sawmills in Africa, our vision is to become the supplier of choice in Africa. Rhino is running in SA, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, Madagascar, and most major countries throughout Africa..
  • As with our Ritlee 225 wood chippers, compost turners, wood shavers, trommel screens, this Rhino sawmill is also South Africa manufactured, designed to cater for S.A conditions, woods, and operators.
