|DOUBLE - EVEN TRIPLE -
YOUR LUMBER'S VALUE!
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.”
