Farm Setup LogRipper-200X Miling Boards

Pros:

  • Can work in 3 modes: Scragg-mill, Multi-Saw, Slab-Processor;
  • Fairly priced for productivity, features & support;
  • In-feed & out-feed roll-tables are included into the system;
  • 15HP/11KW VAC system included;

  • Can mill up to 8 boards or cants from a log in one pass;
  • 2-3 men team: 1 to control the machine and feed the logs, 1-2 to remove milled products and slabs from the out-feed;
  • 2 chiping cutter heads eliminate 2 slabs on sides of a milled log = less hard wood waste than on competitor's solutions;
  • Saw-blades work on "cleaned" surface = longer saw-blade life;
  • 2 blade system allows thinner kerf than competitive 1 blade sysytems;
  • Circular saw blades allow better geometry and consistency of the output products than bandmill
  • The operator can adjust the width of cut on the fly from log to log;
  • Easy & fast change of tooling;
  • Simple to operate;
  • Economical on power than competitive systems;
  • Smaller footpring than competitive systems;
  • Works from ~3 phase, 380V/50Hz (Europe) as well as from ~3 phase, 460V/60Hz (North America);

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" (230-280) logs;
  • 2 Saw-blade 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 saw-blades installed (more saw-blades = more resistance = more power required);
  • Condition of the saw-blades and cutters (dull tooling does not work, right angle for the saw-blades 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 LogRipper-200X & 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 LogRipper-200 or 200X working with average speed 20ft/min (6m/min) and it can mill 1-2 such logs per minute then it is 360-720 pieces per workshift;
  • It means that  LogRipper-200X 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;
  • 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 work-shift 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;
  • 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 LogRipper-300?

 
  • 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 LogRipper-300 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 LogRipper-300 working on average speed 20ft/min (6m/min) can mill 0.5-1 such logs per minute = 180-360 pieces per workshift;
  • It means that LogRipper-300 theoretically can mill per workshift:
    • from 24,000 to 48,000 fbm what is 180-360 pcs 10x8"x20ft per workshift;
      or
    • from 54 to 104 cubic meters what is 180-360 pcs of 250x250x6000mm 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;
