Tandem Gang Linear Edger

Tandem Gang Linear Edger

McDonough’s Tandem Arbour Linear Edger edger system processes over 50 pieces per minute of random length material in a 20' southern yellow pine mill. Each sawbox lifts out of the cutpath to pre-set its saws for its next cut while the other sawbox is cutting. This allows for greatly reduced gaps and belt speed at the highest piece counts in the world.
