For enquiries regarding the cost to rent a sawmill:
The Woodmizer LT40 sawmill cuts logs up to 90 cm in diameter and from 6.1 metres in length.
Access to the site must be 8ft or wider and to operate safely the site must be not less than 10 meter by 10 meters. The site must be level for the stability of the mill and for the machine to operate properly. A hard standing area or a concrete yard is ideal but a well drained field or forest clearing is acceptable. The site must be accessible by a 4WD pulling a 6.5 meter long trailer. Overhead clearance of at least 3meters is required.
We recommend having a forklift to hand and labourers to ensure the mill is kept supplied and to remove the cut wood. Please ensure that the logs are accessible on site and free from dirt, stones and nails. If the blade is damaged as a result of foreign materials in the logs the blade will be replaced and a charge will be made for a new blade.
The Cut Timber should be seasoned (allowed to dry) before use. Time varies according to the type of wood but as a general rule of thumb wood dries at a rate of 1inch per year. A 2inch thick plank which been stored stacked with sticks separating each layer will take 1 year to dry (1inch each side).
The milling process does produce some waste in the form of off cuts which can be used for firewood, and also sawdust which can be left on site to decompose and left to compost or used as bedding for animals. If the customer wishes, we can arrange for the waste product to remove.
We supply a range of bespoke freshly-sawn, air dried and kiln dried timber products for both interior and exterior use
We are proud of what we do!
“We have used Geraint and his team on several projects at our property and found him and his dedicated team of professionals to offer a reliable and quality service. We look forward to working with them on the other refurbishments to make our dream property a reality.”
Tim – May20
“We used Geraint Williams for a complete refurbishment of our house in Harlech. His team were quite literally superb. Friendly, approachable, experienced and highly skilled, nothing was too much trouble. As we were living away during the project and only able to visit occasionally, it was extremely reassuring to know that Geraint was personally overseeing every aspect of the build. He has a very professional approach whilst being very easy to get on with and his considerable experience in all aspects of building and carpentry is evident. We continue to use him for all our building projects and recommend him highly.”
Lou, Harlech – May 20
‘’Geraint and his team replaced our 100+ year old slate roof and re-pointed and leaded the chimneys. They were fantastic! From the get go Geraint was extremely professional and always punctual with his deadlines (even on providing a quote). The work they did was of outstanding quality and they even had the work done a week before schedule. We definitely use Geraint Williams again in future.’’
Marisha – Jan 2019
“Geraint Williams is a very reliable and dependable company that turns up on time- which is not true of all companies! The work is always done to a high standard and the prices are competitive. We can happily recommend Geraint and his coworkers for all types of construction work.”
Dewi – May 2020
“Our garage has successfully been converted to a studio. I can only recommend the company. They are reliable and trustworthy. Their estimates about timeframes for completion and finances are accurate. The workers are not swearing and everybody is very respectful. We have a house with children and the building works did not disrupt the daily flow. Mr Williams is approachable and friendly and I could see that he treats his team well, which is reflected in the way the people work – very professional. The team speaks Welsh and English.
I am more than happy with how we negotiated the deal, the process of the work and of course with the outcome, a fantastic studio instead of a dusty garage…”
