Sawmills are structures in which logs are processed into planks. There are 6 types of sawmills in the game. Each of them can be bought at the Wood R Us store. The cross section of planks that is processed from wood can be changed by players at the control panel on the side of each sawmill, X ranging from 0.6 to 3.0, Y ranging from 0.4 to 2.6. Any logs that are wider than the max length on a sawmill won't fit into it. All sawmills can only accept logs with a maximum length of 10.9 units except the Sawmax 02L that has a max length of 18 units. Any logs larger than this will simply go through the sawmill and will not be affected by it. Sawmills contain a concrete plate under it.
This concrete plate can be walked through, which is good for secret rooms, etc.Sawmills are often used with Conveyors to ease the operation. Sawmills are a crucial part of making large amounts of money at a time. Many players have auto-loading sawmill setups to quickly load vehicles with cut planks. A good one can be found here. Sawmills are a good way to give wood to other players without placing the wood on your land and reloading. Players can just simply put their wood into your sawmill. To process wood very quickly, put the sawmill upright, (the BLOCKAGE sign must be on top) and provide space for the planks to stand upwards.
Type of Sawmills
Elm logs. This sawmill is priced at 15,500 money. These cut by X: 3 & Y: 2.6.
Upon rare occasion, the player may find a log that does not fit into the Sawmax 02, but most of the time it should be able to slide right through. .
This Sawmax can process logs with a length of maximum 18 units, so you can fit any log in it, because there aren't logs with a length of more than 18 units.
