A sturdier chain sawmill – for the really large logs!
Now we can introduce a new, bigger version of the best chain sawmill in the world. The F2+ is an F2 on steroids!
Mill larger Aussie hardwood logs with the F2+
This sawmill is sturdier, heavier and meets the demands of customers who want an extra-robust sawmill for sawing large logs. All essential parts of the sawmill are oversized to stand up to the stress of heavy logs, and to create the space needed for bigger logs, the log beds have been extended with fully 20 cm.
Even though the F2+ is bigger and a bit heavier than the F2, it has become even easier to handle due to a completely new feature that makes it possible to detach the log lifters while keeping the whole guide rail intact and aligned. It has never been easier to store, transport and set up a heavy-duty sawmill for oversized logs!
The frame is built of 1-metre sections that fit in the boot of a standard car if required. Strong log lifters with log beds, which together can stand up to 1.2 metric ton! A lightweight saw carriage that slides perfectly on the guide rail, prepared for optional crank handle and bar nose steering. Chainsaw, electric saw and electric feed unit are compatible.
Fully anodised aluminium sections are a durable and dirt repellent surface. It never rusts.
The sawmill can be extended and upgraded when required.
Adjustment of depth of cut in fixed steps, gives your timber exact dimensions.
Adjustable sawmill feet included for steady positioning.
Strong locking of the guide rail sections facilitate assembly and gives increased stability.
Convenient easy-grip carrying handle for easy moving.
2 XL log clamps are included.

Carriage upgrade package
The basic saw carriage supplied with the F2+ can be upgraded with this upgrade package for more convenient feed of the saw unit and higher accuracy when taking wide cuts.
Winding crank – Provide a more convenient way to feed the saw through the log, is easier of the operator and provides higher productivity.
Bar nose steering – a cross bar supporting a magnet, holds the chainsaw bar more steady, reduces vibration, and potential bar sag. This increases dimensional accuracy and provides an even nicer sawn finish.
Water cooling which is useful in some instances, (like when milling wide hard logs) the water cooling the bar/chain improves productivity and reduces wear. Ideal for wide Australian timbers. This can be retrofitted to the carriage upgrade package at a later date.
The above three features are part of the upgrade package, this package requires the F2+ basic saw carriage that is provided with each F2+ mill.
In its basic configuration, this sawmill can be assembled as a 3 metre long sawmill with 1 metre between the log beds or as 4 metre long with 2 metres between the log beds. Extensions make it easy for you to extend the sawing length in steps of 0.5, 1, 2 or 3 metres.
Chainsaw not included. Includes 4m of rail (cuts 3.8m long longs up to 60cm diameter), height adjustable log beds 2m apart (can be moved 1m apart with 3m of rail), XL log clamps, and basic chainsaw carriage. Add rail extension to cut even longer logs.
The oval-shaped lever handle of anodized aluminium is optimized for maximum strength and low weight. Big and sturdy hook and spike of steel that hold both small and large logs in an iron grip. Length: 1 m.
The tube of the bar-nose steering is adjustable and fits 50-70 cm long guide bars. The guide bar is held in place by a strong magnetic at the bar nose. The bar-nose steering makes it easy to adjust the guide bar parallel to the log beds for a perfect sawing result. Recommended!
Basic carriage for F2. Can be upgraded with winding attachment, chain bar nose magnetic tip support, and water cooling.
With the convenient basic crank feeding, you follow the saw unit along the sawmill. You crank the saw unit smoothly and easily through the log.
System for water cooling of the guide bar. Requires the crank + bar nose steering package.
