Timesavers has reinvented the conventional rough lumber planer. The YIELDSAVER-24 is a top and bottom knife planer with the added capability to automatically center each board as it is being processed. This new planer has a compact design with a smaller footprint than any other rough mill planer. The opposed cutter heads, self-centering infeed shoes, and self-centering infeed drive rolls individually center each and every board. This ability eliminates fixed cuts from thin boards and roller splits of material. The YIELDSAVER-24 ultimately produces the highest yields, best grades, and a high quality finish (while minimizing knife marks and snipe).
