The Milling & Timber Supplies branch of Hotspur Park began in response to a growing need for locally sourced, sustainably obtained Australian hardwood and Cyprus pine. Our farm, Hotspur Park, is located 20kms north of Heywood, Western Victoria, in the heart of the Green Triangle region and has vast amounts of high quality hardwood which is now available for purchase by request.
As part of a diversification project we also offer a portable timber milling service using our Lucas Sawmill. We can mill timber at site or supply from our own Australian hardwood and Cyprus pine. When milling timber off our own property at Hotspur Park, a selective approach is applied to ensure the on-going health of our bushland Timber up to 200mm x 200mm x 8mtrs can be milled depending on log availability. Beams can be milled up to 400mm wide in certain conditions.
A weatherboard attachment is available for milling cypress weatherboards.
Hardwood fence droppers can be milled to size, hardwood floor gratings i.e. shearing shed gratings, can also be milled to size.
We are also qualified to visually stress grade hardwood and softwood timber which enables clients to use their milled timber in registered building projects.
MILLING RATE $90 PER HOUR PLUS GST (INCLUDES ONE OPERATOR)
Saw blade damage $100 plus GST (if damaged during milling, please ensure no metal in logs!)
Extra person for tailing out $35 per hour plus GST.
Travelling rate is $50+GST up to 100km from Heywood. Above this, by negotiation.
Whatever your timber needs, we would love to discuss it with you!
