Just flip a switch and watch your profits soar!

Of all the ways you can add value to your sawing operation, adding a dry kiln is the easiest way to add the most value. For very little extra effort, you can DOUBLE – even TRIPLE – the value of every tree you fell, every board you saw.

Kiln dried lumber is worth far more than green or air-dried.

Kiln dried, your lumber’s automatically worth two to three times as much as green. And even at 3X the price, it’s far more marketable: many folks won’t even consider green or air-dried lumber.

A simple shed and a TK kiln is all it takes.

Build a simple shed, add a TimberKing kiln, and you’re in business. Stack your green boards and hit the switch — wait 1 to 5 weeks depending on species – remove your value added lumber and start another load! Our L-200M makes it even easier: a computer controls the heating cycles.

Just pennies a day – 40% to 60% less energy than conventional kilns.

Our dry kilns are compact, high performance systems that use heat pump technology for maximum energy efficiency. They reduce moisture to 8% in s few as 2 weeks, using half as much energy as old style kilns! Everything’s high quality including our corrosion resistant aluminum cabinets and our coated dehumidification coils.

“My TimberKing dry kilns make me more money than anything else in my shop.”

“I have 3 TimberKing dry kilns. They’re good quality and very dependable. Kiln drying definitely adds value and opens markets that won’t buy air dried wood. We buy green oak for $1.06 a foot, dry it, and sell it for $2 a foot. We buy basswood for $0.65 to $1.05, dry it, and sell it for about $3 a foot. When you’re drying 10,000 feet, the value-added profit is significant. My TimberKing dry kilns make me more money than anything else in my shop.”
