Darrell Curtis, milling with the Hud-Son Oscar 428 sawmill
Here we are with the Hud-Son Forest Equipment Oscar 428.
They said this mill would saw a 28″ long.
So we went and got a 28″ oak log that is 305.5 caterpillar excavator and that it is what we needed to lift in on.
Pass after pass the mill worked as promised.
Darrell and Dick checking the lumber the mill sawed it right on the money just like the gauge said-Just dial it in and cut.
Rolled the log up against the dogs to square it.
A special thank you to Dick, Shawn, and Dave for helping and tailing the saw. Those 16″x1.5″ planks were very heavy.
We are getting it squared up good and now let’s turn it again and cut planks.
This is not a commercial business, this is real world sawmilling and this mill is doing the job it was advertised to do.
The hard work is behind us now. Count me as a satisfied owner of the Hud-Son Oscar 428 sawmill.
