Northfield Automatic Tailboy

Northfield Automatic Tailboy is a fully automatic machine whose function is to replace the helper in connection with a chain feed, straight-line ripsaw. It will operate with any make of modern, single saw, straight-line ripsaw. The machine grips the lumber between an upper and a lower belt as it comes out of the ripsaw. When the lumber is completely out of the ripsaw, the belts stop, shift sideways with the board, then reverse and rapidly return the board across the ripsaw table to a position next to the ripsaw operator. The belts then unclamp and return to the receiving position. Production is about the same with the ripper using our Tailboy as when the ripping was done by two operators.
