Baker Products and KASCO WoodMaxx Blades Join Forces to Win Shoot-Out

2015_Shoot-Out_004

A cold and rainy October day did not dampen Baker Products’ spirits (or performance) in this year’s Sawmill Shoot-Out at the Paul Bunyan show in Cambridge, Ohio.  The team of sawyer Hank Somer and tailman Clay Hedrick operated a Baker Blue Streak 3665D mill and a KASCO Maxx-7 blade to out-shoot the completion at this year’s event.  Baker Products and KASCO blades earned first place honors in the hydraulic mill category by sawing their way to an impressive production rate of 1,273 BF/hr and a production overrun of 1.07.

For the competition Hank Somer brought his new Baker Blue Streak Model 3665D from New Hampshire where he runs a one-man sawmill business.  The Baker Blue Streak Model 3665D is a 65 HP Cummins diesel powered band mill that offers a cutting capacity of 36 in. x 20 ft. (D x L). His blade of choice was KASCO’s Maxx-7 blade.  KASCO’s high-performance Maxx-7 blade features an aggressive 7-degree hook angle and 7/8” tooth spacing.  Hank runs this blade on a daily basis and claims he hasn’t found any other that outperforms the Maxx-7 blade from KASCO.

Ask your distributor for KASCO WoodMaxx blades and their new Maxx-7 profile .  Contact Baker Products for more information on their complete line of equipment.

KASCO’s Quality Product Standards

At KASCO SharpTech, you’ve probably heard us mention that our products are manufactured to specific standards set forth under our Quality Management System (QMS). But what exactly does this mean?

    1. First, these standards ensure that we have documented work instructions, the proper manufacturing processes with checks and lastly, measurements and documentation to produce our product to industry standards. These processes ensure we meet and exceed our customer’s requirements for the product, as well as its end-application.
    2. Our QMS system also ensures that our processes are monitored and measured under strict inspections, using tests and measures that are properly controlled, calibrated and adjusted in order to produce a product that conforms to our high standards and exceeds your expectations.

Our ongoing goal is to measure our performance, analyze our ability to meet these QMS requirements and use this data to identify areas of improvement in terms of internal and external quality. This way we can make proactive changes using preventive and corrective actions to document our results and progress.
