A small crew of 3 or 4 workers can efficiently run the mill under full production.

The mill produces four-sided cants and/or lumber from logs 3-13 inches in diameter and 5-20 feet long. After rolling off the log deck onto the pre-feed table, the sorted logs are transported into the mill. Here the chipping heads form them into four-sided cants before the double arbor saws cuts the cants into boards. At the outfeed lumber flows onto a green chain to be sorted.

The chips produced in the process can be contained and used for a variety of products depending on the chipping knives used and the condition of the logs processed (bark on or debarked).
