Product Description

The HM126 was designed and engineered by Woodland Mills to fill a void in the sawmill industry. The reliable HM126 offers sawyers an economical and durable solution to their needs. From the powder-coated structure, to the reliable 9.5 H.P. Kohler gas/petrol engine, this mill will exceed your expectations. 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. The blade is kept lubricated by utilizing a water drip system. This prevents sap from gumming up your blade.


The mill is capable of cutting 26" (66cm) diameter logs up to 10’ 5” (3.1m) long. Additional track sections are available in 6’ 5” (1.95m) lengths. Capable of squaring cants at 19" (48cm) or skimming veneers at as thin as 1/16" (2mm). The HM126 will cut within 1" (25mm) of the deck ensuring you maximize your usable board foot output.


The HM126 sawmill is powered by a 9.5 HP Kohler gas/petrol 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.

Track System

The head of our machine rolls along rigid 2.5″ x 4″ (63mm x 101mm) “L” channel which is cross supported with heavy duty 3″ x 6″ (76mm x 152mm) rectangle tube. 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’ 5” (1.95m) sections allowing for 10’ 5” (3.1m) log lengths. Additional 6’ 5” (1.95m) tracks may be attached to accommodate logs of any length.


The HM126 utilizes 1.25″ x 144″ x 0.042″ (32mm x 3660mm x 1.0mm) Lenox hardened tipped blades which are available through Woodland Mills. Blade kerf is kept to a minimum at just .080″ (2mm) to maximize the most amount of lumber per log.


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.

  1. The sawmill performs as advertised.  It is built really well, unbelievable value. The family and I are having a great time milling lumber for our small ranch out in Duncans Mills CA. I would definitely recommend this mill.

  2. Dear Woodland , I heard about your product from someone who owns a mill from your company. I purchased a mill and have it almost assembled and so far the product is great as I expected. I posted a pic on FB and have an unbelievable amount of interest from folks who want their wood milled. I have attached the pic, Thank you, Tommy Hartman

  4. Hi Lori,  I was milling a big old pine that was cut down before we bought the property. Here is my first project with my 126 - a small ceremony platform and fire-pit benches for my wedding!

  5. Hi Guys Here are the pics from our loading the mill into a Cessna 206 for a trip to its home in the Idaho backcountry. Later that afternoon we were sawing 6"x6" posts for a Jeep garage. Thank you for the quality machine. The 9.5 engine does a good job and the whole thing is easy to use. Blade changes area a snap. I had to place it on dirt to get it started and that was a challenge, but will soon be bolting it to concrete. Thanks, Allen
