The rhino 500 band sawmill

The Rhino 500 is our most affordable sawmill option. The mill consists of a more compact and slightly lighter weight design, yet many of our sawmill customers across the continent still use the Rhino 500 in their production lines; especially for cutting quantities of soft and medium timbers. 

The standard Rhino 500 model can cut log lengths up to  3.2m, but this length can easily be increased by adding additional bed sections of 1.6m each.  The maximum log diameter is 600mm. All petrol models are equipped with strong 14hp engines, while electric models have 7.5kw  motors.

The Rhino 500 band sawmill offers sawyers an economical and durable solution to meet their milling needs. This sawmill is suitable for small to medium sized production. 

The rhino 500 sawmills that last

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.

Our saw blade guides are of tough and reliable design providing a smoother cut for extended use.

Interlocking bed design

Our sawmill bed carriages are made up of interlocking sections, allowing the bed length to be extended, easy replacement of damaged sections and far easier transportation of your sawmill.
