Vertical Edgers come in single and double arbor models, all having a saw arbor standing vertically in the machine frame. Feed rolls and press rolls move the cant through the saws, with the result being a stack of lumber.
Single arbor machines (VSA) can saw cants 4" and 6" wide. They may have optional shifting saws, allowing the user to produce timbers if they wish to.
Double arbor machines (VDA) can saw cants up to 12" wide, and are available with the same saw shifting options to make timbers with one arbor if desired. Users run saws as thin as 0.140" in Southern pine, with exceptional results.
