Full Tilt Timber Framing in Clancy, Montana has recently chosen a SL130i SERRA mobile sawmill for their operation. For Nate Schuele, 22 years old and a 4th generation sawyer its the new best friend. The previous one (another company) had to be replaced due to a motor damage. As a demonstration machine, the SERRA sawmill was immediately ready for use – in the right place at the right time.
Nate got his first impression of SERRA and the saw mills by YouTube videos. He found the videos hugely impressive and especially liked the receivers for offloading sawn lumber. For the decision he explains: “We were looking at multiple alternatives but the SERRA seemed to have so many good features, larger band, thinner kerf, receivers for sawn lumber, better band wheel technology etc.” The availability of the SERRA demo machine in Nashville convinced them, too, because it was already stateside and built.
Walt and Nate Schuele, the 2 owners of Full Tilt Timber Framing in Clancy, Montana, produce dimensional lumber and timbers for timber frames (around 150,000-200,000 board feet/year). The SERRA mill has fit into their process perfectly and they had not changed either of their businesses.
