Peterson Portable Sawmills
Shipping from New Zealand
The Peterson Automated Swingblade Mill (ASM) has revolutionised the portable sawmill market, delivering increased and consistent commercial sawmill production with little effort. The ASM makes horizontal and vertical cuts, changes the size or depth of the cut, and removes the previously cut board, all at the touch of a button by the operator. Designed with high production in mind, this commercial sawmill maintains fast and consistent production throughout the entire day.
The swingblade concept really is something that needs to be seen to be believed, here's a simple video to help explain the concept: https://youtu.be/xhFtrU3gIcg
“I’m very happy with how it has made my life easier compared to operating my old bandsaw mill. That machine produced wavy boards and involved a lot of manual handling of logs and blade sharpening. With the Peterson, my job is much less physical, which suits me well.” - Earl Schuk, BC, Canada
The ASM is operated with an automatic board remover which returns boards to either end of the mill. This is ideal for single person milling as it allows high production. The board remover also acts as a great stabilizer, which means it increases the rigidity and stability of the blade, making for a smoother cut with less deviation.
For ultimate efficiency the Peterson Hi/Lo track option allows easy log loading either over the top of the low rail with a loader, or by rolling the logs under the high rail.
Using simple set works that don’t take a mathematician to operate, two buttons change the width of cut, and two buttons change the depth. The drive speed is controlled with a lever, which you move forward to go, and pull to bring back. It’s that easy to get incredibly accurate boards with high production.
