Baker Exhibits New EZ Portable Sawmill
Date Posted: 11/16/2001
Baker Products took a new twist recently in marketing its new EZ Portable Band Sawmill at trade shows, including the Midwest Forest Industry Show. Using cedar lumber sawn on the EZ mill, Baker employees built Adirondack chairs, bird houses and bird feeders and displayed them near the company’s exhibit.
Baker is targeting a new market with the mill. The lowest-priced portable sawmill of its type on the market, according to Baker, it is being marketed to farmers, arts and crafts builders, woodworkers and other hobbyists. The idea behind the furniture and bird feeders was to give visitors to the booth some ideas of what they could build with lumber sawn on the Baker EZ mill.
The Baker EZ Portable Band Sawmill is powered by a 16 HP gasoline engine; single-phase and three-phase electric power also are available. It is designed to saw logs up to 24 inches in diameter 9 feet long; bolt-on track extensions allow unlimited log lengths. The EZ mill is equipped with 24-inch diameter band wheels to increase band blade life and comes with Baker’s exclusive flat guide system. The head is raised easily via hand crank and a gear reduction box. Riveted stainless steel and aluminum construction provide durability and portability.
A number of attachments are available for sawing lap siding, shingles and wedges, and log cross-sections.
