butt flare reducer for sawmills from veneer services


“There is no comparison to the old rosserhead it replaced. The result is a very clean, nicely planed log. We’ve seen a huge advantage with the Butt reducer because the logs can be handled and sawn so much quicker.”Christian Weygoldt, Owner, Atlantic Veneer Corporation
