Horizontal Grade Band Resaw

The Hurdle Horizontal Grade Band Resaw's patented design allows both maximum production and maximum grade extraction from each cant. By cutting from the top of the cant, the sawyer is able to see the grade defects that would normally be hidden from view. By sawing each cant individually to finish instead of using the traditional "run-around" system, the sawyer becomes familiar with each cant and is able to focus more on turning the cant to obtain the highest grade boards possible.

The result is maximum grade extraction from your cants and higher lumber value at the end of the day. In addition, the resaw takes up only 1/2 the floor space of a typical run around system! Production of up to 15000 bd/ft per 8 hr shift has been reported, along with higher grade yields.
