We can machine, cut and finish timber to size and our mobile sawmill is ideal for producing large section structural beams up to a maximum sectional dimension of 406mm x 203mm (16” by 8”) with a maximum mill-able length of 8.2m.

The largest oak beam we have milled with our mobile sawmill –
fortunately we had the help of Dartmoor Horseloggers to pull it out of the woods for us!

Longer lengths can be produced but longer lead in times are required.
