  • New product Logosol F2+

    Today Logosol releases a new sawmill, Logosol F2+ it's similar to the F2 sawmill but is considerably stronger built and can handle larger logs. I got to see F2 + the first time for a few months ago and have to say that it is a very nice update. The log support has been extended by 20cm compared to F2, which makes it possible to cut logs up to 70cm. You can also cut bigger if needed. The sawmill comes in 3 different standard lengths 4m, 5m, and 6m but can be expanded to the desired length. The 4m version can handle a logs weight of 1200kg. I like how Logosol chose to split the sawmill between the log support and the saw beam for easy movement. I also see a future option to be able to raise the saw beam there to saw really large logs. The price in Sweden ends at around $ 1950 plus tax for the 4m version. My friend Marcus at Träkultur has tested the sawmill for a while now and he thinks it's a really good mill and a nice upgrade. Marcus is the person on the videos I have where we mill with his 12m farmers sawmill.

  • Event Bondens dag

    This year's farmer's day in Backamo became very nice the weather was top.
    About 20,000 visitors eating ice cream, looked at old and new machines.
    I myself was there to see what the forest and atv exhibitors had to offer.
    Not any direct news, but Logosol showed Band 751 and Alstor showed 840 PRO, which was certainly new to many visitors. It also seems like electric hydraulic tip trailers for ATV is popular several company showed their variants.

    I must see if I can borrow one electric hydraulic tip trailers soon to test en make a video about it.

  • New product Logosol Band 751

    During Elmia woods in Jönköping Logosol showed up a new band sawmill, Band 751 as the new sawmill is called. It’s capable of 75,1 cm log diameter and has 60cm throat opening between blade supports.
    The saw comes in three variants Petrol engine of 13hp and with electric motor of 4kw alternatively 8kw.
    The sawmill is made in sweden and shall cope with our scandinavian climate really good.
    It’s pre-assembled, you assemble only assemble the rails.

    The saw has many innovative solutions which I have not seen before. Among other things, a very clever locking of the log that looks to work very nicely. Saw head is set in fixed steps just like on the Logosol chain-sawmills which are very popular among the users.

    I will div into all the details as soon as I get the opportunity.
