The bandsaw mill’s safety
equipment
Warning! Never use the machine if the safety
equipment is faulty. The safety equipment must
be checked and maintained.
Here is a description of the safety equipment items
on the bandsaw mill, together with their function.
Drive wheel brake
The bandsaw mill is equipped with a brake acting on the powered band wheels. It is designed to
quickly stop the bandsaw blade when the control is
released. On the LumberPro HD36 P the brake is of
mechanical design, whereas other models have an
electric brake.
Emergency stop button
The emergency stop button cuts the power to the
bandsaw mill’s control system and activates the
brake. The emergency stop button must be reset
before the machine can be restarted. Applies to the
LumberPro HD36 P.
Band wheel guard interlock
The machine has a safety switch on the band wheel
guard. The machine cannot be used without the
guard being in position.
Rail end stop
These mechanical stops prevent the saw carriage
from rolling off the rail at its end.
OperatOr
Warning! Whenever the machine is used,
approved personal protective equipment must
always be used. Personal protective equipment
does not eliminate the risk of injury, but it does
reduce the effects of an injury in the event of a
near-accident.
Persons under 18 may not use the bandsaw
mill or handle bandsaw blades.
Never use the machine or handle bandsaw
blades if you are tired, have consumed alcohol
or are taking medicines that might affect your
sight, judgment or control over your body.
ERECTION SITE
Warning! Never operate a bandsaw mill
with a combustion engine in a closed or poorly
ventilated area. It can cause death by asphyxiation or carbon monoxide poisoning. Applies to
LumberPro HD36 P.
If fully adequate working lighting is not available, only use the bandsaw mill or handle
bandsaw blades in full daylight.
Keep the workplace free of debris, pets,
children, obstacles and anything else that may
distract the operator.
Choose an erection site where the supporting
ground is tightly compacted and level, with
generous space for the bandsaw mill, log piles
and sawn wood. If possible, position the bandsaw mill so that the sawdust is blown away
from the operator station. Set up the bandsaw
mill on a level surface keeping a clear space,
without obstacles, of at least 4.5 m all around
the machine. If the bandsaw mill is to be set up
permanently, we recommend supporting the
rail on cement slabs or wooden blocks (15 cm x
15 cm) placed under each crossbar.
Always have a hand-held fire extinguisher of
ABC type (3 kg min.) readily accessible at the
workplace.
Always have a complete first aid kid available at
the workplace.
The machine must be installed with recidual
current device.

Using the bandsaw mill
Warning! Cutting tool: Always stand behind
the saw carriage and keep both your hands on
the handle when operating the machine. Never
stand in front of the saw carriage or bandsaw
blade. Never pull the saw carriage through
a cut. Applies to the LumberPro HD36 P and
LumberPro HD36 E-Twin.
Warning! Risk of entrapment and rotating
parts: Even slight pressure on the saw head
release mechanism can cause the saw head to
drop in an uncontrolled manner and the crank to
start rotating at speed, which may result in injury.
Warning! The clutch mechanism on the
LumberPro HD36 P is very sensitive. Just slight
pressure on the control when the engine is
running can engage the clutch and cause the
bandsaw blade to move.
Warning! Never make modifications to this
machine that result in it no longer conforming
to the original version, and do not use it if
it appears to have been modified by others.
Never use any accessories apart from those
that are recommended in this user manual.
Warning! A broken bandsaw blade can eject
bandsaw blade fragments at high speed via the
chip ejector. Make sure that no one is at the
side of the bandsaw mill when working. The
risk of bandsaw blade breakage increases if it
has not been properly fitted or maintained.
Bandsaw blades and band wheel guards can
withstand cold conditions down to -25°C.
Never use the bandsaw mill in weather
conditions where the temperature is lower
than -25°C.
Make sure the machine has been properly
assembled and maintained in line with the
enclosed assembly instructions as well as these
instructions.

Never work alone. Always make sure there is
an adult within hearing distance in case you
need to call for help.
Never stand between a log pile and the
bandsaw mill. Always stand to the side of the
log pile when handling the logs. Never stand
where there is a risk of a log falling over you.
Hazard area:
The minimum safe distances around the
bandsaw mill are shown in Figure 1. Note that
the safe distance on the bandsaw’s left side is
15 m as there is a risk of saw blade fragments
being ejected via the chip ejector in the event
of saw blade breakage. The extent of the
hazard area on the other sides is 5 m. [Figure
1]
Warning! Keep your hands, arms, legs and
other parts of your body well away from the
bandsaw blade, cables and other moving
parts. Remember that when the saw carriage is
moved, the position of the bandsaw blade and
cable also changes.
Warning! Risk of impact from the saw
carriage.
Warning! Risk of tripping on rail and
crossbars. Never take a short cut over the rail.
Warning! Hang electric cables up out of
the way so that they do not get damaged or
become a trip hazard.
Warning! Never operate the combustion
engine in closed areas. Ensure good ventilation.
The exhaust gases contain harmful substances
that are potentially fatal. Applies to LumberPro
HD36 P.
Warning! Risk of entrapment between
sawmill and logs when loading.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Log pile
Do not build the log piles higher than 1 m.
Logs that are soiled with earth, sand or clay significantly shorten the service life of the bandsaw blade
and increase the risk of it breaking. Avoid dragging
the logs along the ground and try to keep the logs
as clean as possible.
2. Lower the log supports to their lowest position
It may also be a good idea to separate out the various types of timber into different log piles.
4. Undo the locking device for the front logs on the
log table
Log table
Where the bandsaw mill has no log lift (accessory),
avoid working between the log pile and the bandsaw mill. Place the logs on the left of the bandsaw
mill, i.e. on the opposite side to the operator station.
Construct the log table to the same height as the
crossbars on the bandsaw. The log table should end
10 cm from the left-hand side of the bandsaw mill.
Make sure that the log table has big wedges on its
rear edge so that the logs cannot roll off the log
table.
Make sure that the logs nearest to the bandsaw mill are secured to prevent them rolling
towards the bandsaw mill while it is running.
[Figure 2]
Loading of logs
Warning! Risk of entrapment between logs
and bandsaw mill. Always stand side-on to the
logs when handling them.
Never stand between a log table/log pile and a
bandsaw mill. Always stand to the side of the
log table when handling the logs. [Figure 3]
The logs must be rolled onto the log table. Do
not drop them onto the bandsaw mill.
12
When you need to load a log:
1. Set the saw carriage as far back as possible on the
rail (its home position)
3. If the log table has a detachable ramp, attach it
so that there is no gap between the log table and
the bandsaw mill
5. Roll a log forward
6. Resecure the logs at the very front of the log pile
7. Carefully roll the log onto the log supports of the
bandsaw mill. Use a log turner. Centre the log laterally over the crossbars of the log bed.
8. Adjust the log supports so that they support
the log but do not come into contact with the saw
blade. Lock the log supports in position.
9. Roll the log towards the log supports.
10. Adjust the log clamps so that they sit in the
middle of the log supports on the opposite side of
the log. Adjust the height of the log clamps so that
they grip the log tightly. Make sure that the log
clamps cannot come into contact with the bandsaw
blade.

Sawing
Warning! Cutting tool: Always stand behind
the saw carriage and keep both your hands on
the handle when operating the machine. Never
stand in front of the saw carriage or saw blade.
Never pull the saw carriage through a cut. Applies to the LumberPro HD36 P and LumberPro
HD36 E-twin.
Warning! Risk of entrapment and rotating
parts: Even slight pressure on the saw head
release mechanism can cause the saw head to
drop in an uncontrolled manner and the crank
to start rotating at speed, which may result in
injury.
2. Raise the log supports by pulling them up to the
desired height. They will stop automatically in the
position set. To lower the log supports, lift the locking bar.
WARNING! Risk of entrapment. Watch your
fingers when the log supports are lowered.
Log support.
3. Use a log turner when rolling a log onto the log
bed. Centre the log on the log bed and roll it towards the log supports. Check that the log end does
not stick out beyond the last crossbar of the log bed.
That is as far as the saw carriage and its saw blade
reach. To ensure the log is cut fully in half, it must
not lie beyond the last crossbar.
4. Rotate the log to a position that gives the best
wood yield.
5. If the log clearly tapers down from one end to the
other, you need to compensate for this if you are to
obtain the best possible results. You should always
try to saw parallel to the centre line of the log. Place
a spacer between the crossbar of the log bed and
the narrow end of the log. If the diameter of the log
between the ends differs by 5 cm, the spacer must be
2.5 cm.
Warning! Read through and adhere to all
the safety instructions mentioned in the Safety
Instructions section under “Before each cut”
1. Before using the sawmill, perform all the checks
mentioned in the Safety Instructions section under
“Before each cut”

13. With both your hands on the lever, slide the saw
carriage carefully forwards until the saw blade starts
to cut into the log (LumberPro HD36 P/LumberPro
HD36 E-Twin). Feed the saw carriage carefully
forwards until the bandsaw blade starts to cut into
the log (LumberPro HD36 E-twin E37). Once the
entire bandsaw blade is engaged in the log, the feed
rate can be increased. Keep adjusting the feed rate
to ensure the cut is straight and smooth. Reduce the
feed rate when cutting through knots in the log,
and select a lower feed rate when sawing thicker
logs and harder woods. Also reduce the feed rate as
you approach your end of the log.
14. As soon as you have sawn through the log,
release the dead man’s switch and allow the saw
blade to come to a completed standstill.
15. Remove the sawn-off part (the back) from the
log (LumberPro HD36 P/LumberPro HD36 E-twin).
16. Move the saw carriage back to its initial position
by hand (LumberPro HD36 P/LumberPro HD36
E-twin). Return the saw carriage to its initial position
by holding down the Back button. (LumberPro HD36
E-twin E37).
17. Set the height for the next cut. Apply the crank
and read off the gauges.
Turn the log through 90° so that one of the newly
sawn sides lies against the log supports and clamp
the log tight.
against the log supports, and clamp the log tight.
Now you can make the third cut and obtain finished
boards.
19. Before turning the log for the last time, if sawing
a rectangular block, now is the time to see whether
you can obtain the correct dimensions directly. See
whether the width is in line with the dimensions
you were expecting the boards would have. You can
check this by lowering the saw blade so that it rests
against the log. You can then read off how much
wood there is remaining under the saw blade.
20. Remove the offcuts or bark cuts from the fourth
cut. Turn the rectangular block through 90°, and
clamp it tight. Now all you have to do is saw off
boards of the required dimensions.
Turn the log through 180° so that the newly sawn
side lies against the log bed.
18. Turn the log through 180° so that the newly
sawn surface is lying against the log bed.
Lower the log supports and log clamps so that they
cannot make contact with the saw blade, and clamp
the log tight. Make the second cut. Turn the log
through 90° so that one of the newly sawn sides lies

downwards. Move your hands together at the same
time as moving them downwards and complete the
movement so that the bandsaw blade forms three
layers. Secure the bandsaw blade by tying it together at a number of points so that it cannot spring
open.
If you spill fuel on the machine while filling up,
this must be wiped up immediately. If you get
fuel on your clothes, change them at once.

Handling bandsaw blades
Warning! Cutting tool: Incorrect handling of
bandsaw blades can result in potentially fatal
injuries. Saw blades are extremely sharp.
Warning! Risk of sustaining cuts. When
handling saw blades:
• Always use protective leather gloves
• Always use close-fitting protective eyewear or
a visor
• Use protective footwear with saw protection,
steel toe-caps and non-slip soles
• Always wear full-length protective trousers
• Keep persons and animals at a safe distance,
at least 5 m

Replacing a bandsaw blade
It is important to replace saw blades regularly (at
least after every two operating hours) to obtain the
best possible saw performance. The use of blunt
saw blades will lead to crooked or incomplete cuts,
reduced service life of the saw blade and greater risk
of saw blade breakage.
To remove the saw blade:
1. Release the band tension by turning the T-handle
counter-clockwise. Press the T-handle inwards to
reduce the blade tension further.
2. Remove the band wheel guard.
3. Remove the saw blade from the band wheels.
Fit a new saw blade:
1. Position the saw blade first into the blade guides
and onto the bandwheels. Make sure that the saw
teeth point towards you.
2. Ensure that the blade is correctly positioned in
the blade guides so that it passes between the two
horizontal ceramic blocks.
3. Before tensioning the blade, it is necessary to
establish the ”zero” point. With the blade installed
onto the bandwheels, rotate the tension ”T” handle
until all the slack comes out of the blade. This is
now regarded as the ”zero” point.
4. From this ”zero” point, apply partial tension of
the blade (about three half-turns)
5. Rotate the blade by hand in the direction of the
cut and observe the blade to ensure that it still
tracks straight and is still 1/16”-1/8” (15-30 mm)
from the rear ceramic thrust block.
6. When the blade is tracking correctly, apply full
specified tension to the blade, five half turns (2.5
turns) from ”zero”.
7. Replace and securely latch the blade guards before operating.
8. Ensure that the engine circuit breaking safety is
properly connected
Maintenance instructions
1. Cleaning the bandsaw mill
Clean the bandsaw mill after each work period.
Brush out any wood chips or sawdust inside the
band wheel guard and on and around the rail.
2. Water reservoir
Protect the reservoir against UV radiation after each
work period. Empty the reservoir and hoses if they
are full of water and the temperature is dropping
below zero. At temperatures below freezing, washer
fluid may be used as a lubricant.
18
3. Saw blade cooling
Only use water in the reservoir. Never use diesel or
kerosene as a coolant.
4. Band wheel bearings
Before each work period, the bearings of both band
wheels must be lubricated with universal grease. If
the bandsaw mill is used in winter, low temperature
grease must be used.
Band wheel lubricating nipple.
5. Horizontal alignment of the saw blade
Before each work period, check that the saw blade
is parallel to the log bed crossbars.
6. Battery and electric cables
Before each work period, the battery and electric
cables must be checked for damage. Any damaged
cables must be replaced immediately.
7. Combustion engine (Only LumberPro HD36 P)
Check the oil level in the engine before each work
period. Adhere to the maintenance schedule in the
engine instruction manual.
8. Saw head lifting cables
Check the saw head’s lifting cables for damage.
Replace cables as required.
9. Band wheel brake
Check the function of the brake before each work
period. The saw blade must come to a standstill
within 10 s of the machine being stopped.
10. Saw head lifting winch
Lubricate the winch cable drum every third working
day to prevent corrosion.
11. Rail flatness
Regularly check that the rail is level, especially in
winter when frost can affect the subsurface.
LumberPro HD36
12. Drive belts
Regularly check the state of the band wheel drive
belt, the brake lining of the mechanical brake and
the shoes of both band wheels. Replace any worn
and damaged parts.
13. Drive belt
Regularly check the tension of the band wheel drive
belt. The maximum give must be 12.5 mm.
14. Blade guides
Regularly check the band guides for alignment and
wear. Also check that the saw blade runs freely by
rotating one of the band wheels by hand. Replace
any worn or damaged blade guides.
16. Rail scrapers
Regularly check both
rail scrapers to ensure
they are fully saturated.
If not, wet them in a
mix of 50% saw chain
oil and 50% kerosene
or diesel. This keeps the
saw carriage’s rail wheels
lubricated and the rail
free of wood chips.
17. Band wheel guard
Every operating hour or on each saw blade changeover, clean the inside of the band wheel guard and
the saw blade of accumulated wood chips and
sawdust.
18. Saw blades
Replace the saw blade every two hours with a new
sharp blade.
Bladstyrning.
15. Blade tensioning T-handle
Each month the threaded hole and threads on the
T-handle must be lubricated with universal grease. If
the bandsaw mill is used on a daily basis, lubrication
must be performed more frequently.
