Product DescriptionThe reliable HM126 bandsaw mill offers sawyers an economical and durable solution to meet their milling needs. From the powder-coated structure, to the reliable Kohler Pro Command gas engine, this mill will exceed your expectations. All major steel components feature either a powder coated or galvanized steel finish ensuring your mill will stand up to nature’s elements. We recommend covering your sawmill when not in use, but if you forget it’s good to know that it 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.
CuttingThe 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.
PowerThe HM126 sawmill can be powered by your choice of a 9.5 HP or 14 HP Kohler Pro Command recoil start 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.
Track SystemThe 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.
BladesThe 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.
WarrantyThe 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.
