** Published rates are subject to change without notice**


For your project, there will be a Travel & Set-up fee to get the sawmill there and ready to work.  Sawing will be billed "By The Hour". 

My machine (Wood-Mizer LT-50) is a Cadillac in portable sawmills and is capable of producing large amounts of lumber very quickly.  Depending on your log size, log species, log qualityyou labor help, your support equipment, your desired cut list, and other variables,  I can cut between 150 and 500 board feet per hour (I'd say "typical" is between 200 to 325 per hour); again, many many variables affect the production rate.

All projects will have a "Minimum Fee" for sawing (listed above).  The Minimum Fee is in addition to Travel & Set-Up, Damaged Blades, etc...

Blade Damage Fee will be charged to the customer for striking any metals, or other foreign materials, in your logs....(damaging/destroying the blade).​  You are not responsible for a blade getting dull and me swapping out a new one.  You're only responsible if a blade gets damaged from striking objects in your logs.  Blades are expensive to replace, so if you know of any metals or other "foreign objects" in your logs - Please Point Them Out.  "Yard Trees", Fence Line Trees etc....are great candidates to have wire, nails, bullets, etc.. in them.

All projects will require a "Work Agreement" to be signed by you and me before any work begins.
