What You Can Expect from Select Sawmill Bandsaw Models

A quality SELECT Sawmill band sawmill is among the best on the market today.  There are two models to choose from.

SELECT 4221 DOUBLE-CUT BAND SAWMILL

The Select 4221 Double-Cut Band sawmill model is the company’s flagship product, and for good reason: this model is easily known for its far superior quality, performance, and consistency.  In fact, many industry experts hold this model as the ultimate model within the industry in terms of class, as it is not only user-friendly but also high-yield.  Take a look at these specs:

  • either a 115 hp (86 kw) John Deere turbo diesel engine OR 75 hp (55.2 kw) electric motor
  • 6-inch (15.24 cm) swage double-cut blade (a blade which can cut in both directions)
  • 36-inch (91.44 cm) band wheels with double-tapered bearings
  • Hydraulic system with a log turner, a pair of back posts, a pair of tapers, a pair of dogs, a blade guide, blade tension control, head tilt, and a carriage feed
  • a high-tensile frame: 2-inch x 8-inch x ¼-inch thick tubing (5 cm x 20 cm x 64 mm)
  • 3-ft (0.914m) per second cutting speed
  • 42-inch diameter and 22-foot length log-cutting capacity (106 cm x 6.7 m)
  • computerized setworks that can manage up to 12 present thickness settings and two additional hold/recall memories specifically reserved for cutting hardwood

SELECT 3620 PORTABLE SAWMILL

Finally, we have the Select 3620 Portable Sawmill. This model is great if you are looking for a little more variety in your materials and cuts.  As its name implies, too, this model is portable, so it is smaller in scale without any loss to durability:

  • either a 40 hp (30 kw) electric motor with a 10 hp (7.46 kw) dual hydraulic pump motor or a 68 hp (51 kw) high-powered John Deere diesel engine
  • 4-inch (10.2 cm) double-cut swage tooth blade
  • 32-inch (81.28 cm) double-tapered bearing band wheels
  • The same hydraulic system as the 4221
  • 2-inch x 8-inch (5 cm x 20 cm) frame and crossers with 8, fully adjustable support legs
  • 2-ft-per second cutting speed
  • automatic electric blade lubrication
  • 36-inch diameter and 20-ft (91.44 cm x 6.1 m) length cutting capacity
  • computerized setworks that can manage up to 8 present thickness settings and two additional hold/recall memories specifically reserved for cutting hardwood
