MHS Multi-Head Horizontal Resaws

Machine Information

Stenner’s range of MHS multi-head horizontal resaws is ideal for cutting fencing, pallet material and thin boards, as well as slab recovery and precision resawing of timber including hardwood.

With a thinner kerf and requiring less electrical power than a circular saw multirip, the MHS range offers productivity and economy; while modular design allows each installation to be tailored to specific requirements, including the number of heads and options such as angle cutting (ie feather-edge boards) and automatic timber return.

The speed of the track feed is steplessly variable and synchronised with the overhead feed arms, which operate as true radial arms to provide excellent control on differing thicknesses of material.

Robust construction, modern control systems, easy maintenance and high operational safety – all backed by strong after-sales support – ensure solid performance over a long service life.

Stenner’s MHS range has proved popular worldwide, with more than 700 saw units installed in diverse applications

Key performance data

Available in three models – MHS 9 (pulley diameter 915mm), MHS 10 (1050mm) and MHS 12 (1220mm)

Maximum timber width (depending on model and configuration) – 305mm or 450mm

Variable feed speeds – from 7.5-30m/min to 15-60m/min


Low friction pressure sawguides of either a disposable or remachinable design provide the excellent blade stability required for accurate cutting.

Sawblade & Pulley cleaning

These machines are fitted with a drip feed cleaning system to lubricate the felt pads. In tandem with scrapers fitted to the pulleys, the felt pads ensure the cleanliness of both the pulleys and the sawblade.

Saw straining

Strain is applied to the sawblade by a pneumatic cylinder, which applies pressure via a linkage when the lever is operated. For safety purposes a low pressure switch is incorporated, which automatically removes power to the main drive motor power (so the machine stops running) if pressure drops to an unsatisfactory level.
