Proudly made in South Africa

Rhino Sawmills are designed for rugged use out in the field. We understand that conditions can be tough and as such we aim to reduce or eliminate the things that can go wrong. We have aimed to make our sawmills as user friendly as possible while removing breakable parts and electronics which can cause problems out in the field. Our aim is simple - to provide the toughest machine around, while being the easiest to service and the least likely to give problems. This means more production, more success and less stress for you in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions

Besides the tough construction of our mills, there are many other important features that set the Rhino range of band sawmills apart from its competitors. Some of the key features are: 

Simplicity of design. At Rhino we believe in keeping it simple by focusing our attention on building a world class mill which operates reliably without the need for finicky and breakable parts and electronics. We know that the milling environment in Africa is tough, so we build our machines accordingly.

Standardized parts. All our sawmills are built using standard internationally-available parts which are non-specific to our brand and can therefore be easily bought from your local engineering and bearings shop. Of course we stock all the parts you’ll ever need, but we believe that our customers should always have the option to buy spares locally in times of need as to minimize machine downtime and to reduce dependence on only one source of supply.

Interlocking bed design. Our sawmill bed carriages are made up of interlocking sections, allowing the bed length and log capacity to be extended as needed, importantly it also allows for easy replacement of damaged bed sections without the need for full bed replacement as is the case with many other mills.

Easy transportations. The interlocking design of the Rhino sawmill beds implies that the machines can be broken down and palletized as to take up far less space during transport, and is therefore much cheaper and easier to handle in terms of transportation. The customer then simply re-assembles the bed carriage when the mill reaches its destination. 

Long lasting bearings. Our Rhino sawmills come equipped with some of the best bearings money can buy – meaning a much longer life for each bearing. We don’t cut corners on quality and neither should you. 

 

 

At Rhino we have a mill solution to fit your requirements and budget. Our sawmill range includes three base models, each of which can be customized to the customer’s unique specifications. 

From the compact yet strong Rhino 500, to our most popular model the Rhino 700, or our sawmill giant the Rhino 950.  Talk to our service team to help you find the machine best suited for you.

All these parts are readily available.
