The single pass process of the HewSaw R200 A.1 sawing machine is familiar to sawmill operators around the world. Flexible production capacity and low operating costs make the R200 A.1 profitable in a wide range of processing situations. The smooth timber and top-quality chips produced by the R200 A.1 provide excellent raw materials for further value adding processes and needs. Natural curve sawing that follows the central line of the log accurately, and side board edging, maximize recovery and profits.
The compact and integrated R200 A.1 is a proven machine for sawing small logs with a top diameter between 80mm (3-inches) and 230mm (9-inches) and large end diameters of almost 355mm (14-inches).

Their annual production volume varies, depending on the operation settings, from 15 000 m3 (6MMBF) to up to 350,000 m3 (150MMBF) of sawn timber.
The R200 1.1. is a refined version of the R200 A.1. sawing machine. It is a robust and reliable machine that meets the high requirements set by the industry on feed speed and production volume. Stand-up access to service and maintenance areas has been taken into account in the design of the machine to facilitate regular servicing. This model offers flexible sawing solutions and optimal lumber recovery. The R200 1.1 is equipped with controlled curve sawing and optimized side board edging.
The R-series also includes the HewSaw R250, which is designed for the sawing of larger logs.
