Magnum Carriage

Magnum LP Carriage

This Magnum Carriage line consists of simple, heavy duty tong dog carriages. Its so simple, you won't believe it! We know there are other tong-dog carriages out there, but rest assured, our tong dog design has been tweaked for performance that you won't find anywhere else. Available in setshaft (Magnum LT) for Hurdle sawmills, heavy duty setshaft (Magnum LS) for larger mills, or linear (Magnum LP) for large, custom mills, we have a Magnum carriage for any size mill.

This carriage works well with larger logs. Its simple design will produce for years to come with little maintenance. We believe the Magnum carriage design is hands down the best carriage design in the universe!
