Over the years I've owned many sawmills, but I can say the Rhino Sawmills are my favourite. The machines are easy to maintain, parts are more affordable and easier to buy than with other brands, and the four post head design gives more stability during production. I haven't given me any issues. Would recommend.

Robust and durable. The fact that it's locally manufactured is another great plus. The four post head design is more stable than what we've seen previously. We now have 3 Rhinos running at our facility. Very happy with the Rhino mills.

A great choice for any sawmiller. The machine body components are tough and it's easy to use and maintain. I run production on the my 700 without any one else helping me.

Good sawmills for us here in Africa. They are strong machines and don't break down or give problems easily. Very happy with the Rhino 500s we received, we cut a lot of hard woods here in Kenya and it does the job without any issues.

Premium quality industrial sawmills

Besides the tough construction of our mills, there are many other important features that set the Rhino range of band sawmills apart from its competitors. Some of the key features are:Β 

Simplicity of design. At Rhino we believe in keeping it simple by focusing our attention on building a world class mill which operates reliably without the need for finicky and breakable parts and electronics. We know that the milling environment in Africa is tough, so we build our machines accordingly.

Standardized parts.Β All our sawmills are built using standard internationally-available parts which are non-specific to our brand and can therefore be easily bought from your local engineering and bearings shop. Of course we stock all the parts you’ll ever need, but we believe that our customers should always have the option to buy spares locally in times of need as to minimize machine downtime and to reduce dependence on only one source of supply.

Interlocking bed design. Our sawmill bed carriages are made up of interlocking sections, allowing the bed length and log capacity to be extended as needed, importantly it also allows for easy replacement of damaged bed sections without the need for full bed replacement as is the case with many other mills.

Easy transportations.Β The interlocking design of the Rhino sawmill beds implies that the machines can be broken down and palletized as to take up far less space during transport, and is therefore much cheaper and easier to handle in terms of transportation. The customer then simply re-assembles the bed carriage when the mill reaches its destination.Β 

Long lasting bearings. Our Rhino sawmills come equipped with some of the best bearings money can buy – meaning a much longer life for each bearing. We don’t cut corners on quality and neither should you.Β 

Β 

Β 

At Rhino we have a mill solution to fit your requirements and budget. Our sawmill range includes three base models, each of which can be customized to the customer’s unique specifications.Β 

From the compact yet strong Rhino 500, to our most popular model the Rhino 700, or our sawmill giant the Rhino 950.Β  Talk to our service team to help you find the machine best suited for you.Β 

We stock and sell a wide range of high quality band saw blades for a variety of wood types and applications. Speak to our service team and they will advise.

All spares and consumables can be purchased conveniently via our website to be delivered by courier to your door. Alternatively, due to the benefit of Rhino sawmills using standardized parts, in most cases you will be able to buy bearings, bolts, lubricants and other consumables over the counter from your local spares shop.

The most common parts and consumables needed are band wheel bearings, blade guide rollers, band wheel belts, drive belts and service kits for the Kohler gas engines which includes air filters, main air filters, oil filters and oil, fuel filters and spark plugs. All these parts are readily available.

Of course, we regularly provide technical training to our customers and their machine operators across Africa. Training can be provided on premises or in the field.Β 

Yes, we specialize in providing technical sawmill services across Sub Saharan Africa. We have a network of agents in your country which are always supported by our own team of technical experts.

Yes we supply service and spare part kits to our customers for their Rhino sawmills. These kits include a set of the most common wearing parts and will make servicing in the field a breeze, ensuring that you keep your sawmill up and running and minimize downtime.Β
