   Build your LAKS500 system.   

Proceed through the following steps to build your custom system, adding the preferred items from each step to your shopping cart.

On any item, clicking 'More Info' will provide you with details specific to that item, including scope of delivery, specifications, and more.

 

 

   Step 1. Select the preferred LAKS500 model.    

Where possible the 15kW electric model is preferred as it provides full LAKS performance and capability (see below capability table). If your milling location does not have 3-phase power available, consider a suitable generator for the electric LAKS. If this is not possible the the Petrol LAKS is required for your situation, consider it has 20% less practical performance power than the 15kW electric model and feeds slightly slower.
