Model 700 offers sawyers an economical and durable solution to meet their milling needs. From the powder-coated structure, this mill will exceed your expectations. All major steel components feature a powder coated , galvanized and stainless steel finish ensuring your mill will stand up to nature’s elements. We recommend covering your sawmill when not in use, but if you forget it’s good to know that it will endure nature.

The head moves up and down along galvanized steel channel via a very easy to turn hand crank system.

Cutting
The mill is capable of cutting 900mm diameter logs up to 4.2m long. Additional log deck sections are available in 2m lengths. Capable of squaring cants at 800mm or skimming veneers at as thin as 1.5mm. The Rhino 700 will cut within 25mm of the deck ensuring you maximize your usable board foot output.

All of this give superior balance, low vibration, lower emissions, improved valve life, better fuel economy and higher HP/Weight. It comes with a three year commercial engine warranty for all applications. Attached to the engine is an industrial centrifugal clutch system which offers “gas and go” efficiency and ease.

Track System
The head of our machine rolls along rigid 75mm x 45mm x 8mm “L” channel which is bolted to the log deck sides and cross supported with heavy duty 920mm x 190mm laser cut and precision bended cross bunks. These cross bunks supports ensure the weight of the log is dispersed over a large bearing surface to avoid marking the log with indentation.

They also provide additional rigidity to the track system. The log deck itself consists of three 2m sections allowing for 4.2m log lengths. Additional 2m log decks may be attached to accommodate logs of any length.

Blades
The Rhino 700 utilizes 32/35mm x 4000mm x 22mm dabble harden blades which are available through Rhino Band Sawmills. Blade kerf is kept to a minimum at just 2mm to maximise the most amount of lumber per log.
