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.

However, the rigours of the long journey towing an LT20 band sawmill from Khabarovsk, near the Chinese border, to Yakutsk, deep in Siberia, are dismissed in view of the unprecedented interest the LT20’s nine demonstrations attracted in the depths of sparsely populated Yakutiya.

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.

One Yakutsk entrepreneur was so impressed he bought the: LT20 from the final demo’!
