This Cummins Power Generation C330D5 Silent Generator will supply power to a sawmill where logs are cut into lumber. Once trees have been selected for the harvest they are felled and bucked into length, the branches are cut away from the trunk and shipped to the sawmill where the first process is called barking, this is where the bark is removed from the wood, next a sawyer uses a head saw to break the log into cants and filtches which are unfinished planks, then depending on the species of the log, the cants will be further broken down by a resaw into many filtches, next in the process is edging which will take off and trim irregular edges leaving a four-sided lumber.

These days Sawmills are massive and expensive facilities in which many of the processes are computerised meaning the supply of power to the machines is fundamental to the constant production of timber, any time where the machines ar not operational represents a loss of income for the business.
