The WoodMaxx™ SM-26/e portable sawmill is capable of sawing logs up to 26' in diameter into lumber 20' wide and up to 16'-6' in length along a standard 19'-2' track. The SM-26/e was designed to include standard features not found on competing mills in this class. WoodMaxx quality and dependability offer a robust, intuitive, easy to operate and maintain portable sawmill. Check out these features:
ASSEMBLED IN THE USA The WoodMaxx™ SM-26/e is assembled in the USA using American Made and imported components. The mill cutting head and frame are completely assembled and adjusted for you then shipped on a plywood crate. You will simply need to assemble and level the track, slide the mill off the crate and onto the track. (Click on the operation manual link at the bottom of this page for more info). You can be up and sawing in as little as two hours. Competitors require you to assemble every nut and bolt to complete your mill. This can take days to complete and is often difficult to follow the instructions.
19' - 2' GALVANIZED TRACK LENGTH STANDARD 19'-2' total length galvanized track made up of three 6'-5' sections (1/4' thick steel 2-1/2' x 4' L-section) provide a stronger, stiffer track and allows you to saw logs up to 16'-6'.
BI-METAL BLADES STANDARD EQUIPMENT Bi-metal blades can cut 3-4 times as much timber than standard carbon steel blades but require a bit more power to run, and are a 'must have' when sawing hard woods. Bi-metal is similar in composition to a hack saw blade, and ultimately increases blade life and reduces sharpening intervals.
14HP KOHLER ENGINE Kohler Command Pro series engines offer maximum power and rugged reliability.
ELECTRIC START OPTION Even though Kohler engines are very easy to start, when sawing, you will start and stop the engine many times throughout the day while loading logs or adjusting the saw head height. Save your shoulder!
AUTOMATIC LUBRICATION ON/OFF This feature turns on the water blade lubrication when the throttle is engaged and shuts off the flow automatically when the throttle is disengaged
4-POST CARRIAGE One of the most important structural features of a sawmill is the carriage. A strong carriage will allow for smooth travel along the track and stable sawing.
EASY SAW HEAD LIFT MECHANISM Although the saw head is very heavy, it is easily raised and lowered with the easy reach mechanical advantage lift mechanism.
SKF GUIDE BEARINGS STANDARD Known for their extreme reliability SKF bearings are considered top of the line for any high-speed application where durability is a must.
26' LOG DIAMETER, 19' LOG CANT Logs of up to 26' diameter can be sawn down to 19' square beams. Milling can produce lumber veneer thin or to 20' x 4' thick or 13-1/2' x 7' thick.
DUAL LOG CLAMPS Dual log cants (one on each end of the log) allow for securing the log more firmly than tracks with just one center clamp.
10-LITER TRANSLUCENT WATER TANK Mounted to the rear of the sawmill for safety, the 10-liter lubrication tank is translucent so that you can see the water level easily to prevent running out of water half way through the cut.
PUSH & GO THROTTLE HANDLE Simply squeeze the throttle handle and push.
ADJUSTABLE HEIGHT PUSH HANDLE The push handle is adjustable to accommodate various size operators.
SAFETY Safety is paramount, and inevitably there will be a situation where you will need to shut the mill down quickly
ADJUSTABLE LOG SUPPORT Adjustable log rest allows for minute adjustments
