Intrigued by this thread as I'm about to build a chamber for WoodMizer 250.

As I look at the instructions (via Nyle's site) they list 12' loads as being a max of 3' wide. I generally do 8' and 10' material, but occasionally do 12' materials too. My entire system is designed for 4' wide loads (pallets, stickers, covers, etc.).

Is this a matter of fan capability or just an oversight on their part?

Thx

Mine is configured for 4 foot wide stacks up to 19 feet long.  I can go up to about 50" high until I reach the baffle that holds the fans.    Sometimes I stack up past that on the input side of the baffle if I have a large load.



Lots more pictures in my gallery.....

Awesome! Thanks.

The Woodmizer sales dude recommended a reefer unit to me. I kinda searched around for an insulated one and didn't come up with much. I like the idea of rolling it in and being up and running in no time!

Contact the dealers that sell sea containers.   They are rare, but you can locate insulated reefer containers.   They typically cost more but are aluminum and stainless steel which helps avoid corrosion.  I have 2 of them and had I got them earlier I would have built my kiln in one.
