The rhino 500 band sawmill

The Rhino 500 is our most popular mill and for good reason, with many of the key design features that Rhino has become so well known for. The Rhino 500 is easily the toughest, most reliable, and longest lasting sawmill available in its class in Africa.

All Rhino 500s have recently been upgraded with powerful 11kw motors or 19hp petrol engines. At Rhino we only use premium quality motors and engines.

The Rhino 500 has a log length capacity of 4.8m or 6.8m. The maximum log diameter is 600mm.

Although the Rhino 500 is our smallest mill, it is by no means a light machine. Many of our sawmilling customers throughout Africa choose this industrial sawmill due to its great value for money, it being the toughest in its class compared to other competing mills, as well as its ability to handle all wood types.

Some of the key benefits of the Rhino range include the four-post saw head support which provides for extra stability, less shaking and greater long-term accuracy; most competing mills in the same class use a single-post design. The double chain head lifting system provides for longer chain life and greater overall lifting strength. The robust modular saw bed design which consists of up to three times the structural reinforcement compared to other mills in the same class, plus the steel used on the bed bolts, levelling feet and machine frame being the thickest and most durable of any mill available on the market in its price range.

All Rhino sawmill heads run on a double double guide rail system which provides more even weight distribution, less vibration and greater longevity of machine accuracy.

Built tough in Africa for Africa.

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.

Rhino Sawmills are designed and built TOUGH in Africa for Africa.
