Shavings Processing Equipment and Knife Grinder
CAN I MAKE MONEY WITH A SHAVING MILL?
If you sell shavings for $10 per cubic yard you will gross $148 per ton of wood. Our 40” mill produces 33 cubic yards of shavings per hour, so you can expect to use approximately 2 tons of wood per hour. If you run the mill 8 hours/day, you will make 264 yards of shavings. This is enough to fill 2 ½ tractor-trailers per day. You would have used 17.8 tons of wood during the day. If your cost for wood is $30 per ton, then your gross on $148 of shavings would be $118 after backing out the $30 for wood.
The following example is based on running the shaving mill for a one-day period. The costs are based on the following assumptions:
COSTS (Based on an 8 hour day)
SINGLE DAY PROFIT = $1,815
All numbers are examples only.

Salsco Shaving Mills utilize hardened razor-backed cutter knives which provide hours of operation in between sharpenings, depending on the materials being shaved. The cutter shaft on the Salsco Shavings Mills is specially designed to cut in both directions and remove shavings throughout the cut. Mills are fully automatic, with sensors to prevent over-travel of the wood box. From the smallest mill to the largest, built tough to provide years of continuous service.
