Woodland Mills designed the HM126 to fill a void in the sawmill industry. That was, offering hobby sawyers an economical and well engineered mill. The HM126 was built to last. From the powder coated structure, to its reliable 9.5 H.P Kohler gas engine, this mill will exceed your expectations.
The sawmill is covered with a 2 year warranty against manufacturer’s defect and excludes wearing parts (belts, blades & bearings). The Kohler engine is covered by a 3 year commercial warranty which is honoured through any Kohler small engine dealer.

The mill is capable of cutting 26″ diameter logs up to 10 ft long. Extra track sections are available in 6 ft increments. Capable of squaring cants at 21″ or skimming veneers at as thin as 1/16 of an inch. The HM126 will cut within 1-3/4″ of the deck ensuring that you maximize your usable board foot output.
The HM126 utilizes standard 1-1/4″ x 144″ Lenox harden tipped blades which are available through Woodland Mills. Blade kerf is kept to a minimum at just .042″ to maximize the most amount of lumber per log.
Our mills are powered by a 9.5 H.P 4-cycle Kohler gas engine. It features a slant cylinder design, with a cast iron cylinder bore and overhead valve for easy access. The Quad-Clean? 4-stage air filtration system ensures only clean air enters the engine for maximum power and life of the engine. In addition, this engine is backed by a 3 year commercial warranty.
Attached to the engine is an industrial centrifugal clutch system which offers “gas and go” efficiency and ease.
The head of our machine rolls along rigid 2.5″ x 4″ “L” channel which is cross supported with heavy duty 2.5″ x 6″ rectangle channels. These cross supports ensure the weight of the log is dispersed over a large bearing surface to avoid marking the log with indentation. These heavy duty cross supports also provide additional rigidity to the track system. The track also features a simple adjustable log support to securely hold the log while milling. The track itself consists of two 6 ft sections allowing for 10 ft log lengths. Additional 6 ft tracks may be attached to accommodate logs of any length.
All major steel components feature either a powder coated or galvanized steel finish. This ensures your mill will stand up to nature’s elements. We recommend covering your mill when not in use, but if you forget, it’s good to know the mill will endure nature.
The head moves up and down along galvanized steel channel via a very easy to turn hand crank system. Two cam locking handles secure the head in place while making cuts.
The blade is kept lubricated by utilizing a water drip system. This prevents sap from gumming up your blade.
