Cutting oak with Big Mill System


How do you cut an oak log that is one meter in diameter and weighs nearly 2 tonnes? We used the Big Mill System from LOGOSOL — the perfect equipment for this job!

The owner of the oak log asked LOGOSOL for help. The mighty oak was just over one meter in diameter and 2.5 meters long.
“Fresh oak weighs about 900 kg/m3, so the log must have weighed almost 2 tonnes. With a heavy load like that, it’s a big advantage if you can cut without having to lift the log onto a sawmill. This job was perfect for the Big Mill Pro and the Big Mill System,” says LOGOSOL’s product manager Mattias Byström, who took up the challenge.
It took four people to lift the first slab away.
“The boards we cut weighed about 50 kg each,” says Mattias Byström, showing off the amazing result.


Big Mill System
Big Mill Systemet is a well thought-out line of mounts, guide rails, supports and other accessories, which makes it possible to extend and suit the sawing equipment to your particular needs. The components are divided into two lines; one which aims at sawing normalsized logs, and one which aims at sawing oversized logs.
