Wood-Mizer demonstrates band saws with Siberian road shows

Wood-Mizer demonstrates band saws with Siberian road shows A successful nine-days, 2 500 Km demonstration tour of far-eastern Russia has just been completed by Wood-Mizer representative, Vladimir Glazatchev. Enduring the atrocious roads and the permafrost almost merit an award.

The LT20 wasn’t designed for such rugged, long distance towing but it sawed well in the harsh climate. The operator took 15 minutes to set it up in the melting permafrost and the Wood-Mizer blades cut the local Pine and Spruce beautifully.
