Woodlandia LogRipper sawmills
What are the LogRipper^{®} machines?
All models come with:

the LogRipper200X milling 5x5"



Cons:
 The machine has to be fixed to a solid fundation to reduce vibrations;
 User has to understand very well the details of how to setup the machine properly (detailed user manual is provided);
 Improper setup of the machine can cause slower speed, sawblades damage & downtimes;
 Produces "hard waste": 2 slabs: one on top, 2nd on the bottom of the milled log;
 6x6" (150x150mm) and 6x8" (150x200mm) only can be milled from small range = 9 to 11" (230280) logs;
 2 Sawblade system may cause the step in the middle of the board (properly set machine shall not produce the step bigger than 0.5mm);

What about milling speed of the LogRippers?
Please note that milling speed greatly depends on:
 Motor power (machine with more powerful motors will be more productive);
 Wood species density (hardwood is harder to mill, frozen wood maybe harder to mill);
 Wood reduction (how much wood needs to be turned into the waste by the chipping cutterheads);
 Number of sawblades installed (more sawblades = more resistance = more power required);
 Condition of the sawblades and cutters (dull tooling does not work, right angle for the sawblades theeth and knife tips is also important);
 Infrastructure & waste management;
 People (yes, people matter as knowledgeable, responsible, caring personnel is one of keys of the success and trouble free operation);
What about productivity of the LogRipper200X & 200XP?
 Let's assume one needs to mill 6x6" or 150x150mm timbers;
 6x6"x10ft = 30 board feet per piece. 150x150x3000mm = 0.0675 cubic meterper piece;
 Lets assume the LogRipper works 45 minutes per hour during 8 hours workshift = 360 min/workshift (some time maybe needed for the tooling change, cofee breaks, etc);
 If we assume that the logs are fed butt to butt into LogRipper200 or 200X working with average speed 20ft/min (6m/min) and it can mill 12 such logs per minute then it is 360720 pieces per workshift;
 It means that LogRipper200X or 200XP theoretically can mill:
 from 10,800 fbm to 21,600 fbm what is from 360 to 720 pcs of 6x6"x10ft per workshift;
or  from 24.3 cubic meters to 48.6 cubic meters what is from 360 to 720 pcs of 150x150x3000mm per workshift;
 from 10,800 fbm to 21,600 fbm what is from 360 to 720 pcs of 6x6"x10ft per workshift;
 Please note:
 These numbers make sense only for the 6x6" or 150x150mm.
 The actual speed depends on few factors (see these consideratoins above);
 Other profiles can result in significantly smaller production numbers.
 Please, watch videos on our YouTube channel to understand what to expect in real life situations.
For example, for 4x4"x10ft (100x100x3000mm) the productivity would be different as 4x4"x10ft = 13.33 boardfoot and 100x100x3000mm = 0.03 cubic meter per piece.
So during the workshift one theoretically can mill: from 360 to 720 pcs of 4x4"x10ft what is from 4,799 to 9,598 fbm;
or  from 360 to 720 pcs of 100x100x3000mm what is from 10.8 to 21.6 cubic meters;
 from 360 to 720 pcs of 4x4"x10ft what is from 4,799 to 9,598 fbm;
 Practically, if 2 men working on the machine 8 hours/day, expect in average one 10 ft log per minute with 20 ft min log feeding speed. It is physically hard for people to manually unload ands sort the output if the machine works faster than 20ft min.
What about productivity of the LogRipper300?
 Let's assume one needs to mill 10x8" (350x200mm) squares;
 10x8"x20ft = 133.33 board feet. 250x200x6000mm = 0.3 cubic meter;
 If we assume that the logs are fed butt to butt into the LogRipper300 and it works 45 minutes per hour during 8 hours workshift = 360 min/workshift (some time maybe needed for the tooling change, cofee breaks, etc);
 Then LogRipper300 working on average speed 20ft/min (6m/min) can mill 0.51 such logs per minute = 180360 pieces per workshift;
 It means that LogRipper300 theoretically can mill per workshift:
 from 24,000 to 48,000 fbm what is 180360 pcs 10x8"x20ft per workshift;
or  from 54 to 104 cubic meters what is 180360 pcs of 250x250x6000mm per workshift;
 from 24,000 to 48,000 fbm what is 180360 pcs 10x8"x20ft per workshift;
 Please note:
 These numbers make sence only for the 10x8".
 The actual speed depends on few factors (see these consideratoins above);
 Other profiles than 10x8" can result with significantly smaller production numbers;
