All HELLE Carriages are custom built around the customers needs and can often be built to existing subframes.

All HELLE Carriages are custom built to our customer needs.  Headblock spacing, opening and rail gauges are built to customer spec and customer needs.  In most cases, the carriage frame can be made to fit your track, or we can custom build you a sub frame. Sawmill Hydraulics, Inc builds the entire Carriage from the ground up with your needs in mind. We build the pumping unit, cylinders, setworks and entire assembly all in house at our facility.

All HELLE Carriages are prewired, plumbed up and factory tested. The pumping unit on our carriages are self-contained and there are no hoses over the pantograph. HELLE was the pioneer in the double 80 roller chain, no rack and pinion. The guide wheels on each carriage are hexagon style wheels that wear up into the wheels to maintain accuracy. Our knee plates have wrap arounds and have replaceable wear plates made of fiber wear strips.

All HELLE Carriages are computer controlled. To adjust your thickness on your sets, all you do is flick a toggle switch in the cab, what could be easier?  No more getting out of the cab and wasting time! HELLE pioneered the structural tube frame, making it much stronger than channel iron or I beam frames. The carriage frame can be made to fit your track, or we can make you a sub frame.
