Lori, The mill was bought for my Father and has been in use on his farm in W.V. for 2 yrs. I would say the logs which he has been milling are probably bigger than the mill was designed for in size and weight. Logs are 22" long some as big as 36"-38" in diameter - which we had to square with the chain saw, for mill to pass over them. As for species, we have cut all kinds of Oak, Cherry, Popular, Beech and Pine. I custom built a trailor for my Father's mill before even cutting our first log. I had my concerns if the mills would be able to preform when first purchased due mainly to the cost being so low in comparision to other mills. My concerns where quickly put to rest on the first day of operating the mill. Friends, family and neighbors who have seen the mill in operation have been amazed as well. In the 2 yrs of operation there has been well over 500 logs milled and again most were large logs ( 18" plus at the little end of a 22" log) We have built a 20" by 36" pole barn at the farm in W.V., and built roughly 1 mile of 3 rail fence at my brothers home in TN. I have used the milled lumber to build tables, bar tops and stools. My father and I would recommend the mill to anyone in the market for a well priced, low maintenance - good running mill. As for issues with the mills other than the standard maintenace of replacing belts and blade guides - we did have a handle latch break at a weld which I am sure if we would have called the company it would have been taken care of. But as we were able to take care of re welding the handle on site and get back to milling lumber in less than 30 mins I seen no need to call it in. And as for the other small issue the plastic handles on the log dogs - they have been bust due to operator error - which is no fault of the design or mill - which again easy to fix. Here are some photos of the mill and products - sorry for picture quality. (note for company my father or me would be happy to show mill in operation in W.V. But of course it would need to be discussed futher and prior to setting up time and date- as once someone sees the mill in operation - they sell themselves.

Dear Woodland Mills, I have had my HM 126 for about three years now and I love it. The only bad thing is that I don't have more time to use it! The value of this mill is superior. There is great satisfaction with cutting down a tree, hauling it to my mill, sawing it in to usable lumber, and building something. Even something so minor as the smell of the sawdust is satisfying. This mill has been a perfect addition to my homestead and way of life. Thanks for a great product! Regards,

Here are some pictures of the biggest log that I cut so far! It was about 14 feet long by about 27inches! I love the mill. The only thing I put in it is blades and gas! hahaha. I never ever had any problems with it its been my 3rd year with it!

I got the sawmill put together today and was amazed at the quality and craftsmanship that was put into the machine. The engine has plenty of power and the saw head cuts as true as you could possible get. I sawed about 3 white pine logs around 18? in diameter. Worked great! I ripped them up into 4/4 boards to build a structure around the sawmill. I could not be more happier with the performance of the mill. I want to thank all of you at Woodland mills for all your help. I want to share a few pictures of the set up I have for the mill.

To Josh and Neil. Hey guys sorry it took so long to email we have been to busy cutting some logs. We have 150 cut to date and a lot more planned. We are envisioning using the sawmill through out the winter since we are in the process of making shed for it. We have work out little quirks and built some add ons in order to make the whole process more efficient. Sweepers would definitely be very helpful but overall we would have to say that our experience with the sawmill is great. We have found a new passion !! Sincerely

Just a few pics of my mill which I like extremely well!! Cut over 10,000 board feet with this product and only changed 1 guide bearing ($2.00). I figured this machine has paid for itself over 3 times!! Sawmill is 1 yr old in April 2012. - Cliff

I use my mill for 3 years and am very satisfied. I permanently installed it on my woodlot where I mainly found fir, spruce and aspen. As I have an old house and two cottages of wood I use it a lot for the maintenance. I also made woodwork from aspen wood. Logging and sawing are becoming my favorite hobby and I have many retirement plans which is expected in four years. During my last week vacation I saw 2X6 and 2X8 in 12and8 feet to enlarge the cottage and I am currently completing a building for my mill and other tools. For the exterior finish I saw clapboard that I am rather proud. Thank you for allowing me to discover these pleasures by offering affordable and quality product. Daniel Cote

Dear Woodland Mills Team, Thank you for your super service! I picked up my sawmill in October 2012 in Zurich. Now you see the first Woodland Mill located in Switzerland with four-wheel drive. It is mounted on an old Engine-Mono-Axle with drivewheel-trailer (built in 1955, payload capacity 1 ton/2204 lb). With two self made special extensions, I cut a length of 5.2m (17ft) directly to the trailer. I am very happy with this sawmill. Josh, Neil, Julie, thank you very much! - Daniel Witschi

Josh, Thanks for taking my call this morning. I have to say that your company's customer service has been great since I started working with you guys on this mill, so Thanks!! I am on a little island in the middle of the Georgia strait between Vancouver island and the mainland of Canada. The mill has been great to set up and make lumber from the ample supply of wood here. I take western Douglas fir from the island and roll them off the island log boom them to my bay then to the ramp at high tide, winch up the ramp to the mill, the wood is used for repairs to docks, cabins, decks, etc. It is a remote location so it is really the only practical way to get lumber here.

I cut this trailer load of 2x8x8 for a man in Arkansas who is building a cabin in the mountains! I have a lot more to cut for him. All this lumber came from four logs. They were twenty two to twenty five inches! Mill cuts great! - Derek Campbell

Hi there, I am the proud new owner of a band saw mill HM126. I made up a stand for my saw with help from my nephew Rick and it worked out perfectly. This is just the temporary location for my mill. I will be putting it under cover ASAP. As the pictures show, I have just put the first few logs through and I couldn't be happier with it's performance. The log I am milling is an ash log which is a very hard wood but the saw gave exactly the results I was looking for. I am about to purchase a few more items for my mill and the company is exceptional to deal with, everyone I spoke with was very knowledgeable and the service is great! - Earl Mercer

Hi again, Just wanted to say how very pleased I am with my mill. I have cut some big timber with the unit some as large as 26 inches with great efficiency . Powerful is an understatement . I currently have milled around 10000 board ft and have plans on much much more . I am sending pictures along with this email. All this has been done with no mechanical issues at all. The word hobby mill is used, but my mill is a serious machine that will get any milling job done I set before it ! Thanks again!!! - Jason

The mill we purchased is in use almost every weekend. We've milled Ash, White Pine and some Poplar. We are building a sugar camp as you can see in the background. Nice to never have to buy lumber. Still very happy with the purchase I have made a pile of board and baton and a few nice long beams. - Jeff

The mill is exactly what I hoped it would be. I'm still making a few little tweaks to taste. As you will see my frame is made up of some structural channel conveyor frames that I salvaged. I pinned the axle for easy removal. It pulls great behind my 4-wheeler. One of my photos show my first load of 2x6's. White pine and red pine. I was amazed at how well a little dish soap in the coolant tank worked to keep the blade clean. I've got White Cedar, Tamarack, Balsam, White Oak, Ash, Maple and more that needs to be harvested. (I'm replanting too. Being responsible. :) Anyway, thanks. My dad, brother and I have projects lined up that will keep us sawing a long time. Sincerely, Jim

Hi Josh and Neil, I bought the sawmill on summer 2012 and since I had a lot of fun on my land at St. Louis du Ha! Ha! in Quebec. The wood I used was spruce, I made a shed for the sawmill. And during summer 2013 I saw some wood to build a patio for my cabin! I included some pictures for your website, hoping to see them posted soon! Bonjours Josh et Neil, J'ai acheter le moulin a scie a  2012 et depuis je me suis beaucoup amuser avec sur ma terre a bois a St-Louis du ha! ha!, au Quebec .

A picture for your website... This is about half of the wood we've already done and we still have about that much to go again. We had so many trees to mill because Gord's cottage burned down last fall due to a lightning strike (and killed many of the surrounding trees) then we had a wind storm this spring and lost about 20 more trees! Mostly maple and hemlock but some oak and beech. We plan to make flooring and furniture for the new cottage. We're having lots of fun. Marlene and Gord

Here are a few additional pictures of what I've been doing the day I milled this huge log was the day I went to the hospital with my wife to birth our son. In the picture, he is 12 hours old and I'm wearing my new favorite t-shirt! The log was approximately 1800 lbs and 18' long. I'll get a number of 12" beams out of it!

Hello Josh and Neil, Thank you for designing an affordable mill that has enabled taking milling past the hobbyist level. The mill was purchased in the spring of 2012 is housed as shown below. Only the rafters of the mill shed were milled on site, but using a long reclaimed barn beams and a stand made of some steel track to build some starting blocks allows the full use of 3 sections of track. Soon the tarp/windshield hastily put up one blustery Maine winter day will be replaced with live edge. Being a first time mill user/owner is an experience and 2012 was a good year to listen and learn from to the mill. It didn't take long to learn to keep her tight, sharp and strait. Quality material resulted. The highlights of that season were 2x pine to refurbish a modified trailer used to haul logs to the site and a beautiful stack of cherry is also drying in the attic. 2013 has been a busy. The ambitious plan is to mill out the timbers for a post and beam house. The trees were felled in late December 2012 and early 2013. Despite a rash of winter storms (actual storms, even by Canadian standards), it has taken about a month to be all of the way done milling. In the foreground is a stack of 17 ft maple 8x8, followed by a 17 foot stack of maple 2x (flooring). Looking from the other end of the stack are some more big rafters and beams and a stack of 12ft oak 6x8 (girts) 3x8x12 oak floor joists. Finally the 5/4 stack of mixed oak and maple. I'm not sure how many board feet have been produced in the first few months of 2013, but as happy as I have been with this purchase being this far along in this project this soon is unexpected. Weeks ahead of schedule you mill as outperformed our expectations. The logs in the foreground should just about finish the milling aspect of this project which should be about 2 days work. The next steps are to build a firewood storage area with some pine milled out last year. Matthew

This 3-season porch was my second project with my woodland mills saw. It's been 18 months from concept to it's present state. I'm currently working on trimming the interior to match the exterior. The mill also made most of the deck, the handrail and the siding on the house. My advice for a new mill owner, especially a first timer like me, is to put a lot more effort than I did, into a good set up of the mill the first time. I've found that a good leaf blower works perfectly to clean up after each day. Also, the Princess Auto wagon frame that I made into a portable sawhorse for the slab wood makes clean up much easier.

I took delivery of my Woodland Mills saw in January of 2013 and have spent many hours cutting and learning the sawmill. We have cut all types of trees from soft pine to very hard hickory and the saw has preformed exactly as advertised. It is amazing the amount of lumber we have cut and now used as a result of this saw. There is a learning curve needed to install the unit and to properly operate the saw. All my friends tell me, if I can do it, then anyone can, they cannot believe how this saw has enabled me to use all types of trees from my farm that otherwise I would never be able to do. We just completed building a barn that we only used wood from my farm. Here are a few pictures of our operation. From the start I knew getting the logs up on the cutting rails would be a chore, so I designed a simple lift system to be used on my tractor. Easy to build and I have been able to lift huge logs on the rails and never actually touch the logs. Basically we added extension arms to the lift arms of my tractor along with chains and hooks. It took about an hour to weld together and cost zero, as we just used some scrape angle iron with already had. I would recommend the Woodland Mills sawmill to anyone wanting this type of operation for a personal sawmill. And cannot say enough about the staff on giving me advice and more when I needed it from the company at any time. The barn I just completed used 4 types of wood. Cedar for the post, sycamore and hickory for the beams, sycamore and oak for the side boards and pine for the ceiling joist. Fun building it and all the wood was cut with the Woodland Sawmill. This one barn almost paid for my sawmill. Now we are working on a suspension bridge using white oak for the entire bridge. I will send pictures of this bridge as we go along. Randy

I'm a proud Woodland Mills portable sawmill owner. I was looking for an affordable mill that would do the job. Yes i know that there are bigger and more expensive saws out there, but this sawmill can still do some heavy duty work, if done right. There are lots of things to learn about making good lumber. No matter what type of mill you buy. Since I bought my sawmill, I've made plenty of lumber, from Cedar to Maple, even big Douglas fir with the diameter over 26 inches. If done right, you'll save time, money, wood and your back. I have 30 acres of forest and 1/4 of it is half fallen trees which are still 100% solid lumber. With these logs, I started building a barn with the lumber I've been making. What started as a hobby is now a part-time job. I make boards for who ever wants any, hard work pays off. What really helps me is the the customer service that Woodland Mills provides me with. They answered all my questions and always give me good advice. Thanks to Neil and Josh at Woodland Mills! Rheal

I am a carpenter from east Texas. I needed to build an addition on a house in February 2013. I searched the Internet for what seemed to be the best value mill in the 3,000-4,000 dollar range. I settled on the Woodland. We had the addition cut out in about 4 days. Since that we have been contacted to cut many other custom orders. On a good day we are able to cut around 1,000 board feet. We have cut about 10,000 board feet of cedar timber for a timber frame. Also a 26" 24' red oak that weighed around 5000 lbs. I have been very satisfied with the capabilities of this mill considering the price. Thanks, Richard

Hey guys, when I got my woodland mills bandsaw I got more than I could ask for. The quality was excellent and simple to use. I put it together by myself, but had my neighbor set it on the rail with his backhoe. I added an I-beam overhead with a hoist and pulley system to move the logs. I really enjoy using it and save a lot of money not having to buy lumber from other sawmills, and the quality of cuts is much smoother than other sawmills. Thanks for such a great product and for only being a phone call away for help. - Rusty

Neil and all: Up and running and I'm really pleased with the small amount sawed thus far. Thought you might be interested in the way we have initially set it up. Because we are limited on space 50' x 150' lot in typical older suburb, we set the mill on a heavy duty rolling cart with one section of track (attached to the cart with 4 lag screws). This allows us to store it in the garage/shop and roll it out for use, we use a handyman jack to block it up off the wheels to level and stabilize it. This is quick and easy and a small footprint that we can set on our patio (and quiet enough for close neighbors during the day). The 6' of track allows us to cut blocks up to about 45' long, this easily handles most of the blocks of oak, cedar, elm, and Osage Orange I have here. The cart is designed to fit in a small pickup (Toyota Tacoma) via ramps and a winch so we can haul it to my son's place where we will set it up full length and work on some recently cut large Ash logs. Have worked on green ash, oak and elm already dried down to about 15%, and fully cured Osage Orange (hedge, as we called it in the Midwest). The latter, as you probably know, is really dense, hard, and heavy when dried (this was cut 25 years ago) and is notorious for dulling saw blades and being plain difficult to cut, but the mill handled a 10' log well with a steady feed and I continued to use the same blade on the oak. To extend the hedge, I cut most of it about 5/16" thick. I've attached some pictures of the setup and a couple of wood, the yellow hedge and some of the quartersawn oak. So, great so far. Many thanks. Best, Terry California, USA

Thank You Woodland Mills! Your HM126 is doing what I expected; it has helped me create a 70 X 100 dog enclosure and we are well on our way in building our dream log home with the help of the HM126. It all started when we decided to thin a 35-40 year old wood lot we have consisting of white pine. With the help of the Halton arborist we used proper forestry management and took out approximately 500 trees this past winter ranging from 14" in diameter to real small ones we figured we would not use. I had in mind to build our log home with a flat on flat application and thats where the portable sawmill came to mind. I also expect to mill my own floorboards and whatever I can to cut costs. After careful consideration I decided to go with your HM 126 system as it was the most cost effective and most suitable to my needs. All the small logs I figured I would not use for the log home came in handy when it came to building the dog run.Not sure how much money I have saved by milling a 70 X 100 X 48 high fence including stringers, but I'm sure Its almost paid for the sawmill. It gave me a chance to get familiarized with the saw as I only sliced logs like they were bread. Now I have made some cants that timber framers would salivate over and plan on doing much more. So thanks again Woodland Mills and to my old faithful John Deere tractor, I am well on my way to checking off something on my bucket list. Tony Ontario, Canada

Hi Josh, Here are some new pictures from my new setup. All lumber for the Deck and sawmill Shed are milled with HM 126. The Doors on the Shed open to the inside do to the height of the bunks. The Shed size is 15x12 with lots of room to even sharpen the blades. The Decks size is 24x12 and with the room inside the shed, I'm capable to cut total log lengths of 26". Thank You For this nice Mill. Wolfgang, British Columbia, Canada   UPdate: Here Is My ground mount set up and log handling/loading system.My Milling Deck is 24’X12’ and includes a 8’X20’ Trailer frame stationary ( no Axels ) for the Mill tracks. The Sawmill Shop is 15’X12’ and I park the Mill head inside. All the woodwork is milled with HM 126.To load the mill with logs I build a Gantry Crane on tracks witch runs over the mill tracks, from the center of tracks to 8’ past the mill deck.This way I'm able to load logs from a Pickup Truck, Trailer, or skid them to the deck and push them with a snow plate in between the Crain Tracks. I have a logging truck load of pine spruce to cut up and this system works slick. The Crane is powered with an electric cable hoist 1400 pounds and runs on an I beam dolly.The 8’ and 12’ logs can be turned 360º so the small end of the log faces the mill head.I must cut over 10.000 board feet with the HM 126 with very little problems so Keep up the good Work Woodland.

1st pic is a 22 inch wide pine. Biggest log I've had on the mill. Sliced it up with ease. Really enjoy running the hm126!! 2nd pic is a 12 ft black walnut log. Again the HM126 sliced through it like a hot knife through butter. Couldn't be happier with my mill. 3rd pic is the log from the first pic. Squared up and ready to make 2x10x16's. Building a barn. 4th pic Is the same log, but a better shot of the length. I always try to get the company name in the pics. 5th pic is the black walnut log about 2 inches in. It ended up with 1x10x12 solid chocolate boards. I've cut hard wood, soft wood, even sliced a few stumps with it. As long as you keep a sharp blade, tension kept tight this mill is a hard one to beat. Very happy with my purchase. Jamie Teal   Update: Hey Lori,   Love seeing all the pics on fb, thought I'd send some recent shots of what I've been cutting. First pic is White oak. It was 12ft long, 19 inches wide. Inch and a half thick with live edge on one side. Customer made counter tops out of them. Second and third pic is my oldest daughter (9) helping cut stickers lol. 4th pic is just a cool shot of the blade chewing thru some 1/2 thick black walnut pieces. Customer wanted all 1/2 thick pieces at different width and length. Built a pretty cool wall out of them. Have a good day!!   Jamie

Regarding our recently purchased sawmill from you we are wondering why we waited so long to purchase. We have it setup and chose to setup on old railroad ties leveled and backfilled with gravel. We also built a walking ramp which doubles as a loading /staging area for the log. Wanting not to down load directly onto the rails we down load on the loading ramp, which we tapered and roll the log onto the saw rails from there. We also put a couple of planks down to make a smooth walk way while sawing the log. We have three households here wanting milled lumber which is keeping us very busy. The performance of the saw to this point have been very good and easy to use. We have milled logs down to 1 inch thick for siding to 6-8 inches thick for beams for a deck for my brother in law. We received the mill on a pallet and had easy assemble. As we go forward we are learning how to mill all the possible lumber we need for our home building projects. Thank you very much for a reliable reasonably priced sawmill that fits our needs. The pictures are of the loading and milling of the first log. We are very pleased with the ease of use and reliability of the Woodlands Mill. Wayne A. Roberts

Thanks for a great mill, it's easy to run. Glad I went with you guys. I'm having a good time with it. Thanks again guys the mill is getting the job done will soon have enough lumber cut to build the garage. Ken Geesey Update: The mill will get a work out. Update: Using these logs to build make panels of wood with cement between, like in a log cabin.     Update: I had 3 Elm logs it took some trimming to get them to fit but it was worth it The one with the holes is going to a table $ 400 and the planks are going for $ 75 each that little saw is doing a great job.   Update: When the weather warms up some, that mill is gonna get a work out. 40 cords of red pine; 8-foot-long; 29 to 30 inch logs.       Ken   Update: My HM126 is getting a work out! My sharpener works great.

Hello everyone at Woodland Mills. I just wanted to contact you and wish everyone at your company a huge thank you! We purchased your sawmill this past Fall with grant money for my High school Woodshop Class with the hopes that we could begin saving some costs on our lumber supplies. Your company went the extra mile to sweeten the deal and give our kids a little bonus with extra blades and such. I also wanted to share with you that your saw has well surpassed our expectations and created something in our school and community that is nothing shy of amazing. This year our school is facing some financial hardships, thanks to your saw it has helped to save our program by completely eliminating our lumber bill. We typically spent $4K on lumber each year for the students. Now we have reduced our costs to nearly nothing. Even more amazing is the local community response to a newspaper article that was published about our sawmill. I have spent all winter getting phone calls and traveling around to different parts of our town collecting logs that community members have donated to our program. You name it we have had it donated. Oaks, Cherry, Hickory, maple, Walnut, and Pines. And on top of it many of the community members donating have already committed a log or two for next year. On top of which a local tree recycler has agreed to donated whatever we need free of charge. In fact this past fall he dropped off a semi load of maples. Thanks to the support of our community and your saw we now have a near limitless supply of free lumber to mill. The best part though is the student buy in I have had. Students are running the sawmill cutting lumber that they will use for next year. The comments that I have heard are ~ I can't believe I am turning a tree into lumber then into a project. So many of my students have enjoyed running the sawmill that I have other teachers complaining that their students want to skip their classes to come to my class and run the sawmill to build up the lumber supply for next year. On top of all this your saw is extremely safe for my students, very easy to learn and amazing on how long a tank of water, gas and a blade will last. Even my principal had no issues running the sawmill in a business suit non the less. It was quite a scene, however it demonstrated the ease that anyone can run these saws. Again Thank you so much for all your help and support! You have made a huge difference in the woodworking program at Clio High School!!! Matthew McMullen Industrial arts Dept.

We love our sawmill and I mean that both sincerely and enthusiastically. It is so easy to operate and makes beautiful cuts. Customer and Technical Service are superior in every way. Everyone is eager to help and satisfy us no matter the problem we are having (usually because we don't understand something ~ LOL). Not only are we totally satisfied with the sawmill, but we are also crazy about our T-Rex! We are the envy of our neighborhood, which includes several contractors. We hook it up to our ATV for pulling logs, but we also use the dump bed for hauling left over debris. An awesome add-on I'd recommend to anyone needing a fully functional small mill like ours. BTW, this mill is run by two women in their 50s. Attached are pics of a foyer table cut from an 18? diameter camphor log using our Woodland Sawmill. We chose the crotch piece for the grain and coloring. After much sanding, we saturated it with oil vs. using varnish, urethane or lacquer. The base is from a vintage sewing machine that has been steel brushed and lacquered. Feel free to share a link to our Facebook page at Sweet Stix Artisans Thanks again for your wonderful customer service skills and follow up. Maria Stevens

I recently purchased the HM126 sawmill from Woodland Mills. When I finally decided this was the mill I wanted, it is everything I expected. I mounted the mill on an 18 foot equipment trailer to ensure I had a flat and level surface to start with and immediately started cutting fir and alder logs into 1 inch planks. I have as much fun cutting the boards as I'm sure I will making them into shelving and sheds once they dry out enough. When I did my research I looked at other brands of the same type of machine and found Woodlands to be the best for the price. Another competitor has one for a little more but I didn't trust the service I would receive from them after a couple calls and lost or just not sent E-mails. Gene Whetsel

I bought the HM126 in May 2015. Since then, I have been milling continuously. Assembling the mill was not easy (you really need 2 persons); however, I was glad to have the adjustable feet. I strongly recommend buying an extra log clamp. It really helps maintain smaller logs in place. Purchase a blades sharpener if you can; it will save a lot of time and money overtime. The more I use my mill, the better I feel cutting with it. The mill makes beautiful and straight boards and beams. For the price it is great value. I could also add that I always had a very good service at Woodland Mills.

Here's a hybrid log/timber frame we built with mine. Extra track is key. A little of everything on this one. Stick built dormer, 1/2 log, 1/2 timber frame. And split level. Update: The finished log home! This addition was built with wood from the HM 126.  Pine siding, hemlock trim, red oak timber frame.  I've run some big logs though the mill! Made a 21 foot 16x16. Glad I have the tractor to handle em though. Here's another product of the mill. Live edge cherry braces, pine frame. This big log became a 20x20 cant. I took one 3"clear slab off of it for a desk.

I was so impressed with the quality & versatility of my TREX trailer, I purchased a HM126 sawmill from Woodland Mills as well. I have the combination of them working together perfectly well now from forest trees to milled lumber stacked and drying in the shed. I am very pleased with the quality and performance of the HM126 mill. Together this equipment has transformed my ability to better manage, and realize, the values of my woodland. Thanks!

Hello to the staff of Woodland Mills and Happy Holidays. I have owned the HM126 for a year and I wanted to provide some feedback and pictures. The mill was delivered in less than a week and went together without any problems. I have been impressed with the quality and performance. Like a lot of comments I have read, the engine performs flawlessly and starts immediately. My last tank of gas lasted so long I was wondering if I would every have to add gas. I live in Northeast Connecticut which is called the Last Green Valley between Maine and Washington D.C. One of the reasons I purchased the mill is the seemingly endless supply of free logs that are available in my area. I have milled red/white oak, white pine, cherry, spruce, tamarack, ash, hickory, hemlock, cedar and black walnut. I have milled cherry, cut a mile from my house for a friend, and we are now both making dining room tables from the beautiful lumber. I have bartered wide white pine boards for brand new Anderson windows worth about $2000. I have sold bar tops and had two gentleman buy my black walnut slabs just yesterday. The mill has paid for itself in one year of part time use. I have a stack beams of 12x12, 10x10, 8x8 and 4x8s in anticipation of building a post and beam garage on my property. Everything I do from here on out is gravy. Thanks for providing a quality mill, with great features, at an affordable price! Update: Good morning! I wanted to share this black walnut table a friend built with lumber cut on my mill. I've had the mill two years now and it's performing wonderfully! Have a great day!

We love our mill. The log pictured on the mill is a 31" cherry. That's the largest log we have cut , I did not know if we could but we did , we got some beautiful 2" X18" board's. We are still learning to run the mill but we have the basics down. We are very happy with the ease of use of the mill and the adjustability of blade replacement and blade adjustments. We have it temporally on my car trailer until we cut enough Lumber for the lean too that it will b housed under on the side of my garage. Thank you for a simple and practical mill that is well built for the small hobbyist as my self.

It gives me a great sense of pride to be able to say that we actually cut and sawed our own trees (White pine, Tamarack and Hemlock) from our property to create something so functional and add so much to our small farm. With the ease and use friendly design of your mill, none of this would have been possible. Thank you.

We're building a shed over the mill with ash lumber . The ash trees are all infected with the ash borer beetle in Pennsylvania and soon they will all be dead. We also are milling beams to replace some bad ones in our barn. The mill has plenty of power to mill the red oak and ash that we are using. Very happy with the mill and service. Glad I found woodland mills. Denny   Here are some of our recent projects.  We just completed a workshop in the barn with some beautiful pine.  We also made a sled, we strap it towards the rear of a log and raise the log in the front with the 3 point hitch , this way we keep the log clean when we pull it out of the woods.  Finally you can see we gave the mill a well deserved rest while we clean up the mountain of slab wood that produced so much beautiful lumber.  Thanks again for a great mill.  Denny

First I would comment on the excellent service I have received from Woodland Mills. I am a bit nutty when it comes to customer service and you guys are a breath of fresh air. That alone might prejudice my opinion of the mill. Attached are two pictures of my mill in action. The first picture is of my mill setup. In this picture I am milling a large oak log. The log was a little over 15 feet long and just wide enough to make it into the mill (actually I had to cut it a bit with a chainsaw on the sides to allow it to fit). In the left of the picture is a oversized saw horse I made from the very first log I cut. It is made of ash and can handle over 500 pounds of cutoffs. The oak log yielded boards 17" wide. The tractor is on the right side allowing wood to be stacked directly onto the forks and then carried to a hoop greenhouse that I use as a barn for drying. At this point I have mainly cut hardwoods that are left over from hurricane Sandy in 2012. This is a great product and friends and neighbors have stopped by to ask about it and see it in action. Thanks Richard Dodds NJ, USA

I wanted to send you some of the work I have done with my Woodland Mill. I purchased in 2012 at the Bancroft Forestry Expo. I keep the mill up at my cottage in Otter Lake, Quebec . I am very pleased with the mill and have been putting it to use quite a bit. I also have purchased the TREX trailer from you guys as well and find it compliments the sawmill very well. Attached are some of my projects that I have completed. Some projects were a large cedar deck on the back of our cottage Bunkie, an outdoor shower, pergola, board and batten siding on our cottage porch, boat tackle shed (built on the front of an old retired runabout), shed overhangs and a sawmill shed. I have milled cedar, pine, basswood, poplar, spruce, balsam, tamarack and birch. I look forward to many more years of outdoor milling and projects and always like to hear how other woodland mill owners are using their saws. All the best to the woodland Team.

The Woodland Mills sawmill was easy to set up and a joy to use. I have made several small items from green lumber and have several hundred board feet drying inside one of my buildings. The small shed next to the mill was tossed together with incurred lumber. Everything milled to this date has come from ash trees destroyed by the emerald ash borer. My woods has hundreds of these dead and nearly dead trees 10 to 48 inches in diameter and 50-80 ft. high. The saw mill allows me to save as much of this oak-like lumber as possible.

We have had our Woodland Mills sawmill for several years. It has performed very well, cut thousands of board feet, both hardwood and pine. Recently my son, his grandfather, and myself cut all of the lumber needed to complete a picnic shelter at our church, which was my son’s Eagle Scout project. His Eagle Scout box was built out of Walnut which was also cut on the mill. I have included a few photos of the project. In my original research, I had looked at several sawmills but am very happy that I chose Woodland Mills. Tim Wines

I wound up fabricating a 60" by 14' trailer to move it around as my acreage is about 250 km from home. We've been doing up some Hemlock for odd construction job and a pile of hardwood ( maple, oak) for pending projects. The mill runs flawlessly as it has for the past three years and is a pleasure to use. Will get some more pics forwarded once we really get production going next spring.

Hi Lori ~ The Grindlux 4000 blade sharpener is definitely doing its job well. I've been cutting a lot of wet white oak lately and having a sharpener onsite has made all the difference in production of finished boards. Once you dial it in, its a set it and forget it operation tool. I've also been cutting some live edge walnut and ash, the blades cut threw like butter. I've attached pics of some pieces I've been working on lately...thanks again...ttys.

I had to be creative to get the bigs ones cut... Many thousand board feet of lumber have been cut with my HM126 to get my 4000 ln ft of 8x8's that I estimate I need... Planning to start building in March... I beefed up the rails on the saw mill with 6" channel this helped with keeping it straight, also I can put an axle under it later to make it mobile...

I have just purchased an HM126 and various extras from Henrik in Sweden. The machine has arrived and we have set it all up and spent last Saturday using it. Henrik's service is excellent and he helped with everything we needed to know, a really good guy. The machine arrived last Tuesday and we put it together over the course of Wednesday and then didn't use it until Saturday. I have to say that the machine is excellent and is a great addition to our business which is mainly outdoor furniture making and this will now be with wood we have milled ourselves. When our trailer is made we will be advertising a new side to our business which is mobile milling. Thank you very much for such a great quality machine and a great quality service.

My brother and I bought our mill to supplement his tree service. We save anything that we possibly can in order to mill it up. We have cut many different oaks, cherry, ash, walnut, various types of maple, many different pine, and other things I'm sure I am forgetting. We have had no issues at all with our mill. The stack of wood in the picture is the first 2 days worth of sawing, just getting used to what to do with it. Since then we have sawn around 10,000 board feet of lumber. I've included a few pictures of our first big log, a large pin oak, as well as a picture of one of my children helping out. My three oldest love to watch it run and help push it, as well as clean up the sawdust. Thanks for making a quality product, I love using it and am looking forward to using it for many more years.

Hello Lori, Last fall I purchased a mill and have absolutely loved it. I liked it so much, I bought another one for my father. The mills are working great and have easily paid for themselves already! Thank you Peter Kavakos Update:   Hi Lori,   That's great people like the cabin, I know I do! The mill has been great.    I milled the entire cabin out of white pine. It took about 10 20" trees. I used all the slab wood before I got to a nice square log for the siding at 1" thick.  Once I had a square cant I milled the structural lumber. I stickered and dried the lumber for 4 months.  I just finished the final coat of stain on the siding. I used a stain and sealer in one and it came out great.  The project is finished it took one year from trees to cabin..with no electric! Hope this helps.   Thanks   Pete

I am a 62 year old semi-retired college Professor. I received the Woodlands sawmill as a retirement gift back in April of this year. The intention was to take it to our cottage near Temagami, Ontario where Mother Nature often supplies us with an assortment of saw logs. There I would use it as a hobby as I ride off into full retirement mode very soon. Before shipping it to Temagami, I took the packaged unit to a friend's farm near London, Ontario. We started assembling the unit on a Friday afternoon and we were ready to start sawing by dinner time. We found the instructions easy to follow. With a bit of mechanical ability and a couple of extra hands the assembly was straightforward. Sawing our first log was exciting and effortless. And extremely accurate! I'm really impressed with the job this sawmill can do, and I'm really looking forward to learning more about how to saw logs and the various "advanced techniques" that I can employ with the unit. The pictures attached show the unit at our cottage by the lakeshore. I laid out some concrete filled sonotubes, cast some galvanized metal saddles in the concrete, then laid out a 4"x6" wooden tie and foundation arrangement to support the metal track system. My hope is to put the unit on a roadworthy trailer system in the near future. I really want to have the mill as a portable unit. I have lots of friends who are really impressed with what they have seen so far, and they are tempting me with offers of saw logs all over Ontario. Thanks to all the friendly people at Woodland Mills who have provided encouragement and technical help thus far, and for your wonderful website. You're doing a great job. Please keep it up. Best Regards, Peter

I was looking through your website (again) and thought I should let you guys know how pleased I am with my Woodland Mill. I purchased the mill at the Bancroft Forestry Expo in 2012 have put it to good use ever since. I have attached a few pictures of the enclosure I built for it last summer. Total cost was about $30 in gas and $20 for blade sharpening. My savings in lumber costs have already paid for the mill!!! I am now able to make good use of standing lumber that I am constantly thinning out of my 100 acre mixed bush. The slab wood is great for camp fires and for heating the house during those mild spring and fall weeks. This spring it will be put to good use milling a variety of quality, straight, low cost lumber for several tree stands, an ATV storage shed, butcher block island for the kitchen and whatever else I can find the time to build. No more trips to the lumber yard for me. Thanks, Dan Ryan

Michael Fortune- Article in Fine Woodworking Magazine
The latest addition to Michael Fortune's woodworking homestead, in rural Canada near Toronto, is a portable sawmill, which will let him saw his own lumber from the log. After seeing the Woodland Mills HM126 in action at a local demo, he was surprised to see a sticker price under $3,000, meaning the machine would pay for itself in a few years. But watching him fire it up on a snowy day, I got the sense that owning this machine is at least half about the fun of it all. Fortune didn't stop at the basic equipment, of course, but made it permanent on a concrete platform, with a timber platform alongside for rolling logs aboard. Walking behind the bandsaw carriage, Fortune rolled it smoothly through a 2-ft.-thick walnut log, exposing the creamy interior and grinning the whole time. Soon after, Fortune built a solar drying kiln from framing materials and clear plastic roof sheathing, to handle the green lumber he produces. The temperatures inside hit 100 on a 25-degree day. A small computer fan keeps the air moving.

Hi Lori, I just wanted to send in some pictures of my set up with my new woodland mill. I bought the mill after Sunoco put a gas pipeline across my property in April of 2014. I did a little bit of investigation and after watching your instructional video decided to buy your woodland mill and I'm really glad I did. Like some others have said, it takes a bit of getting used to, not the machine so much as knowing how to cut the logs to get the most out of them and a few little things with the machine as well, like how long blades should last etc. I placed my mill in my 150yr old Pennsylvania barn. I keep it out of the weather and it stays a bit warmer in there than outside in with blowing wind, plus I can control the mess a lot better. I also have set up a little shop so once the boards are cut I can edge them with my table saw if I have to. I can trim the ends with my sliding compound miter saw and I cut my stickers as well and then stack the wood out of the weather to dry in there as well. When I got the mill, being a retired shop teacher, I built a wooden frame to support the sawmills frame work. I used 4x6x12 ft pressure treated lumber and cut dados into the side pieces then used lag bolts and washers along with 3/8 inch all thread with washers to further stiffen up this frame work. I need no more leveling with this arrangement and it works fantastic, plus it raises the mill up a bit making it easier on the old back. As you can see I set the logs (and in the one picture I am cutting my second log which turned out to be a 28 inch Oak) using a Bobcat skid loader. Thanks again and thanks to the guys who have helped out with tech support as well. I did need them a few times when I first started cutting. Neil and the crew have been there a few times later in the day when I get time to cut and have had questions concerning some little problems. A very, very nice machine for the money and it is super accurate.

The sawmill is running great... It took me a couple of times setting up the base/foundation, tweaking it etc. Dropping large ( 16ft ) logs on it all day made it go out of alignment a couple of times. I think I have it right now and contiue to cut/mill logs and lumber . I am building a small Log Hunting Cabin in the woods not far from where I live. The logs are "D" shaped and the sawmill does a great job . Here are a couple of pictures ... you can see the logs that I am stacking with plans to start putting up walls in a few weeks . ( The last picture ... the Grandkids having fun ! ) . Thanks again . Glenn McDonald Update: I have had the HM126 for a few years now and have updated there site with pictures of the log cabin and out buildings I have built . After all this time the mill continues to perform beyond my expectations . I had to replace the clutch and contacted woodland mills, within a few days I had a new clutch and it was very easy to replace . This summer I built a sugar shack with the logs I milled in the spring . It's great to not have to worry about lumber .... I just cut what I need !

"I have been very pleased with my HM126 Sawmill. It is accurate and powerful enough to cut through some pretty large frozen Manitoba Ash and Tamarack. The Kohler engine starts and runs well in even minus 30 C weather. The mill too operates well in these cold temperatures. It is important at blade change to completely clear the discharge chute and sawblade pulley wheels of the lube antifreeze ice/sawdust buildup. This is completely understandable and is only a 10 minute job. A great investment that has put the creativity back into my life. "Thanks Woodland Mills" Glen Harron   Update:       I said on Facebook that I would send you some pics of the outputs of my HM 126.       I bought the mill to build a house.  The outputs of the mill were mostly non-structural and included: fascia, soffits, siding, flooring, interior finishes, cabinets, counters, base boards, sliding barn doors, door and window trim, and ceilings.         The picture of the bathroom is the downstairs bath built from local cedar.         The siding is lapped pine and the vaulted ceiling is ship lapped pine.  3,000 meters of 3/4" pine was cut, varying widths.  It was fastened when still green using galvanized serrated nails. The ceiling boards were screwed using coated trim screws.       Tamarack was used for the soffits, fascia and future decks.  It was selected for its rot resistance.  When complete approximately 10 cords of tamarack will have been used.       Ash was the hardwood of choice for the flooring, counters, cabinets, mouldings, etc.  It was cut 1.5 years ago, and was stickered to air dry.  After air drying the floor slabs are straight edged in the shop and rough planed, then brought inside to the loft to further dry for 2 months before finish planing and T/G.  12 cords of ash were sawn into 1", 1.5", 2" and 3" boards.         The sawmill has been magnificent and the blade sharpener a necessity.  There's lots to learn, and I just keep learningMy new hardwood floors, milled with my HM126 from Manitoba Ash. Everything else in the background also from my 126.       Glen

Lori, I thought I would send you a couple of more pictures. I am cutting up a log pile on my property. I built the trailer myself. I combined parts I saw on other trailers. I've since added rollers with a one ton bottle jack. I made side loading ramps out of 3" angle iron. I use a battery powered electric winch to pull the logs up the ramp. I had a winch with a slip clutch in it so it wouldn`t lift more than it was rated for. Some idiot in an office came up with that for safety, Just the opposite. I threw it in the garbage. I had a 32" x 16` log on the ramp. When it got to the top, I guess it was more than it was rated for and down it came on the ramp. I was smart enough not to be near it. I am looking for a good winch now. Until then I use my 4wheeler one. I had to cut down 30 trees to make room on my property to make a shed for the mill. I will be able to work in the winter. I welded 8 top crank, 2500 Ibs, jacks for fast mill leveling. I wielded the mill levelers to the trailer frame, for truing the mill bed. I also have a interchangeable trailer tongue, out o 3" square tubing. I will be adding fenders and signal lights for highway travel. I have cut 2x6's and 2x4`s for roof trusses for my new mill shed. I love the mill and it is one of the best purchases I have made in many years. I have had many fellow sawyers check my mill out. They come from Iron Bridge to the Soo. Jack

I have attached a pic of me running the mill and the most recent picture of the cabin progress. As for my experience with the mill, so far it's been great. The two small issues I've had were handled very promptly. The customer service was awesome. The mill has been working pretty much flawlessly. We have probably run 30 plus trees through it. There is a small learning curve to using the mill but it is easy to use and learn. I was expecting far less quality based on the price point of the machine. I always recommend the mill to anyone who asks about it and how I got/made my logs for the cabin.Great product! Update: Just wanted to let you guys know the mill I purchased is working well. Customer service has been great! Thanks Jared Bruinsma

I just wanted to say how very pleased I am with my mill. I have cut some big timber with the unit some as large as 26 inches with great efficiency and the word powerful is an understatement . I currently have milled around 10000 board ft and have plans on much, much more. All this has been done with no mechanical issues at all. The word hobby mill is used, but my mill is a serious machine that will get any milling job done I set before it! Thanks again!!!

Having a blast with the mill and absolutely love it! Update: White pine bench made with last year's stock.   Update: Nothing better than being a rookie artist and having a mill! Best of both worlds when I can put the two together.     Update: Bought the mill to build my log cabin however due to the abundance of lumber I stumbled upon a rustic customs business. Just getting started with a Facebook page called Primal Woodworks and felt I had to give some credit to you for making such an awesome mill for a price that the average guy can afford.   Raising the roof! Buying the mill has been one of the best moves I've ever made. It has helped to allow us to build this bought and paid for. And I have lumber piles everywhere to help furnish it

Hi Lori, I am loving my HM126. After 2 summers of sawing, the mill has more than paid for itself. I've built a 10' x 12' woodshed, an 8' x 12' utility shed, a working chute for our cattle herd and a bunch of lumber for friends and other small projects. Looking forward to many years of sawing and bigger projects ahead! The few times I've had to call, your customer service has been awesome and I appreciate that and I have recommended the mill to several others. Thanks again, Jeremiah Wood

Hi Lori,    Here's the dog helping me saw up some maple for the 320 square foot chicken coop addition I  am putting onto the barn. That wood is almost too beautiful to waste on rafters but they will look  nice holding up the roof.   Here is a picture perhaps for facebook. My brother putting the final board up on the cabin. The  entire thing is sided with white pine sawed on the mill. Worked great. And the outhouse at the cabin made entirely from home sawn wood (besides the pressure treated  frame). Thanks for making such a great machine! I don't know what I would do without it.  Buying lumber at home depot just seems so boring and expensive these days.   Chad Araneo

Getting ready to cut the biggest piece of Poplar so far, around 26". I am turning out some very nice lumber that will be used for a new addition on our home Lumber pile s getting larger by the day. Soon have enough stocked up for the new addition this spring.   Got out today between bad weather and got 3 mantels cut. 5" thick 12" wide x 5'-4" long. There white pine. Had to get me a sawmill fix. Thanks Woodland Mills — at Pocahontas Retreat. Kevin Treadway,     Update: Finally got our addition finished. The 3x10 beams on the ceiling the 1x8's on the walls and all the floor framing were cut on my HM 126. This mill is such a pleasure to own. It's so handy to just go cut anything you need. Now to figure out what I want to build next.     Update: More projects done. All the wood was cut on my HM126.

  Hi Melissa. I purchased the band mill from Woodland Mills in January . I used the blueprints you sent me to build a trailer for the mill. If it had a foot longer frame it would work better, otherwise saw works great. My dad is pleased with it so far. Haven't got to saw too much yet, but have big plans for it this summer. Here is a picture of my dad with his new little play toy, sawing his way to another weekend project. I have had several comments on the mill and my father-in-law is talking about purchasing one to.

   Hi Lori,   Just couldn't wait to show you the first thing I have built using my sawmill from woodland mills.  This is me and a porch swing I made all out of Alabama Cedar.   It took me just a few days to get use to the mill and then I built the swing in about 3 days.   Can't wait to see what my wife wants next.   Have a Great Day!   Jim Whitney     Update: I am still using my mill and enjoying many new projects. I'm still doing a lot of small projects but my wife has some bigger projects planned that I haven't started yet.    My sawmill is still working fine and I have cut many large cedar trees some as long as the sawmill will cut. My wife likes to sit outside and watch while I'm cutting boards. It's amazing how well this sawmill cuts wood! Thank You for the Great Sawmill.       Update:  Hi Lori, The wife and I are doing fine, staying really busy with the grass because of all the rain lately. I have made time to do some saw milling. Made the little woman a grape arbor for our old fashion grapes, Seems the grape vine likes it. And I have been pretty involved in making cedar Bee Hives. Trying to get some bees back in our area. Maybe cedar will help. Saw the pictures that are posted, and wow there is some nice things out there. Thank You, Still enjoying the saw mill. Jim

Received the mill and got her to the sight during a blizzard and was not able to get back to site safely for over a month. The weather finally broke and we went to work on some big poplars that the logging trucks rejected. I had a tough time getting her set up because of user errors and not following the instructions like I should have, but the product and customer service are spot on. Very simple to use and put together once you get past a little learning curve. Very happy with the product so far. Well made. Well designed. Getting the blade tracking right is the trickiest part for a beginner, but it all makes perfect sense now. You'll want to grease up a lot of parts and treat it with care like any other $3000 machine. The wood is lookin' good. Thanks, Woodland Mills! John Morgan

Thanks Lori ~ my wife loves the poplar table also.  I will add a few comments regarding the mill.  It is extremely user friendly.  Everything is right in front of you and can be fixed and adjusted with basic hand tools.  Made from thick gauge steel hauling my mill around on a trailer makes it easy keeping it rigid and not a lot of movement.  With a sharp blade this mill performs with or better than other brands.  I have cut over 10,000 of hardwood and the beast still cuts great. Love my mill!

He is helping to mill to build a tree house too. This mill is amazing for the value. Don't let the low price think this machine is low in quality, its not. From the Kohler engine that starts first pull every time and runs strong through all types of wood. The construction of the mill it top notch and backed by the company for any defects.

  Here are a few photos of my setup. Just finished cutting some 28" ash logs and it got through them really well. So far it's exceeded my expectations.   I keep my blades sharp and it cuts straight and pretty quick to. I hadn't planned on milling for anyone else but it seems I have a little sideline of milling for others as well.

Brenna, The Hm126 sawmill has been an awesome piece of equipment for me. We have had a very high mortality rate of our Ponderosa Pines (bark beetle infestation) and I felt it would be better to make lumber instead of firewood out of the dead trees. I have made fence boards, 2x4s, 2x6s, 2x8s, 4x4s, 6x6s and some beautiful 2x14s for some future table tops. The mill has not had any breakdowns and I have done only normal maintenance to it since last October, replaced 2 sets of belts and 2 guide bearings. I look forward to using the mill almost everyday, being an old guy I really appreciate how easily it operates. I found lots of good advice on the Forestry Forum to help me set up my mill site and I dreamed up the metal rails to connect the log deck to the mill frame, they install and remove easily so I can walk to push the saw head back and forth. Thanks for a quality mill and maintaining the support and parts for your equipment. squid

I love the mill, it was relatively easy to set up. Easier the second time as I did not spend the time the first round to make sure it was level and where I wanted it. I was too excited to use the mill and did not spend enough time on location. The mill is great. I square up the logs until I have a project and know the dimensions that I need. This serves two purposes, we have a Fir bark beetle problem and so I need to get rid of the bark, and, it is much quicker with the cants to make the dimensional lumber. Chris Ames

I love my mill and that I purchased from y'all. Tech support is awesome and always reliable. I couldn't even begin to guess the footage I have sawn with the mill. If I had to guess probably somewhere in the 75 thousand range in three years. Enclosed is some projects that I have been able to do with the mill. First pics are of a heavy timber church and white oak arbor that I built the arbor is the only thing she knew about the church was a surprise. After hearing and talking to the guest at the wedding now it is a wedding venue on the farm here in NC. Also, a room in my house and that I done to replicate the cabin that I'm going to build also the floors are a mix of pine and maple straight off the mill and a overlook we have just finished framing up for the venue.

Thanks Lori and Breanna and Julie for your continued support. Thanks again Doug, We have really enjoyed this mill, so far we haven't had a log too big to whittle down but we have learned our limit. We finally got it running/cutting like a sewing machine and with a few minor additions and organization improvements and back saving implementations we are sawing away and loving it.

  Figured it was about time I gave some feedback on the hm126, in one word, GREAT! From the first day until now, just great! Mill was easy to assemble ,very little adjustments were needed.  Once it was together (height adjustment cable, and throttle cable.) first log on the deck and it cut like butter! Now its been a little over one year and the mill  is still performing flawlessly. It easily paid for itself in just under one year,including more blades and some support equipment(log turners,chains,ect) . I bought the mill to support my wood working hobby and it’s done that and more. This mill is the perfect size and fit for any hobbyist, and is extremely affordable and requires very little maintenance. My goals this year for the mill are to lengthen the bed and to make it portable. Doing this will increase the milling services I can offer and in turn making me more money! Again I can’t say enough about this mill, simply great. negatives? well one; i should have bought this mill a long time ago! lol. Positives, every one in the company was great to deal with and extremely helpful. Mill was easy to set up and use from day one. Mill has been nothing but reliable every time its used. I’ll send along some pictures of work done and projects made with the wood. Thanks again for such a great product.

  Hi Neil,   I'm pleased that you think that my Woodland Mill's camo cover is worth sharing on your website!  My sister made it for me.  She is quite a seamstress and can make anything with material and thread.   As I said in my post on the Forestry Forum, feel free to use any of the pictures in my photo gallery.   I am really enjoying the mill.  I've been wanting a mill for years and in September '13, I purchased this used Woodland Mill (60 hours on it) from agent in St. Stephen, NB.  I have 40 acres of woods behind the house and lots of big pasture spruce/tamarack/pine/poplar.  Some is so big they are dying.  So I better start cutting them down and using them.  There are several that are 30" plus so I'll have to do some creative carving with the chainsaw so I can get them on the mill!     The Kohler 9.5hp engine has lots of power, easy to start but you have to apply the choke at each start even when the engine is warm (no big thingy!)  The blades are easy to change and a sharp one cuts like a knife through butter.  It's a light but very strong setup.  Easy to add bed extensions if you so desire.  Standard length is 10' bed and you can add extensions from there to infinity.  The carriage push bar is adjustable and the throttle is easy to handle.  And the folks at Woodland are quick on the draw in answering your emails and providing help if needed.  You have to keep in mind what the other fellows here have said - it's not a high production mill, just a hobby mill.  But if you aren't looking for 1500bf of lumber a day and have the time, then it's a good mill.   Bill

Brenna: Good to hear from you.  I'm very pleased with the mill - it works as advertised - it's at the perfect price point for the occasional sawyer. Overall, very good quality and excellent design for a basic saw mill.  I went the extra mile and built a 6x6 support for the rails which are attached to 6 concrete piers.Since the mill is a bit close to the road, I elected to remove it from the rails when not in use. I use a tractor to lift it on and off the rails - and transport it to a nearby shed. Thank you for the very nice quality cover.  It is used when the saw stays outside when I'm sawing.  My friends are very impressed.  I neglected to get pictures of the really nice lumber that has been cut. We cut a monster cedar tree, black walnut, large oak 2x and 3x for mantels and benches.  The most recent pine log pushed the limits of the mill.  We got it done! Bob

This is a large white ash and what you see here is us taking a six inch by twenty inch slab.  We wanted several six inch wide boards so we cut the slab then stood it up on its end and cut eighteen boards.  So far I have only had two large diameter logs that really challenged the saw and when that happens you have to get out the chainsaw and take a few cuts to reduce the size.  I have not been disappointed with the diameter restriction!  Any log bigger than the twenty eight inch maximum are very heavy and dangerous to maneuver. Thank you, Bruce Markell   Update: That log was a 33" diameter sugar maple.  Perhaps you see the black pipes in background that utilities cut my maples down.   Bruce

Hi Julie, Just wanted to email you guys a long overdue email. Simply put, I have been extremely busy and each time it comes to mind to notify you all, I get interrupted. Please find attached a couple of pictures of the logs I have been cutting. I truly like the sawmill and oddly, so does my wife.You have impressed her and that my dear people is a winning combination ;-) She always sees my projects as added work for her, but she definitely sees the value in this product. Also, please thank (and I forgot his name) the person who sent me the replacement part(s), cable tensioner. It fixed the problem and made the lift and fall much better on the band saw. Everything you have done, from the crating to the neat water tight case for the manual on the mill says quality and consideration right from the get-go. I have already showed this product to several friends and have recommended it to them. Thanks for a well made and affordable tool. God bless - Dan Stafford

I just wanted to send you some pictures of the mill setup and one of barns I sided with it. I received it on 4/16/14 in fine condition. It only took about 2 weeks to get here. I live on 20 acres and have plenty of Cedar that was already down. I have since went into business with a tree service to provide me mill logs. I have milled Black Locust and, Black Walnut, as well as plenty of Western Red Cedar, and of course our staple out here; Doug Fir. I originally set the mill on a temporary bunk, but found the platform unstable for heavy logs that I load with my excavator. I decided to build a permanent bunk out of concrete and fix rails to it, for consistent even lumber every time. I have completed siding for 2 large barns 44' x 48' and 36' x 48'. It really only took me about 40 hours to cut both orders. I have also cut hardwood for customers from Seattle. Very easy to maintain, it took all of 20 minutes to change belts and guide bearings, and now it cuts like new again. I have augmented my milling operation with a Stihl MS 660 and a Beam Machine to trim larger logs into a Cant that the mill will handle. It helps having an excavator to load logs, but I could easily use ramps and roll them up with a come-along. I built a mill shed to keep her dry, and I am adding a drying shed behind the mill in the future.  This is a very trusty machine, well built with a quality engine. Learn how to sharpen your own blades and you will save time and money, otherwise find the local sharpener and get 2 sets of 10 blades, one in hand, one at the sharpeners. Or split them up into 5 blades and do the same. Nothing is better than new belts and a sharp blade! When all is in good shape, this thing cuts even hardwoods with amazing ease! I cut my neighbors' 12" wide 430' of soffit from one Cedar tree in about 2 hours. That was 36 boards, 1/2" thick and 12' long. I traded him 4 hours of dozer work on my place. The tree was just laying on the ground on my property!

I have had my mill for almost two years. I work in the woods so it fits in good. Days I can't cut I can saw. Helps to keep the wood yards cleaned up. I have done different projects for family , friends and land owners . This is my house I was finally able to build by having the mill and time during mud season.

I bought the HM126 this spring and I am extremely pleased with it. It was worth every penny. The mill has a very simple, durable design and makes very accurate cuts. Its easy to assemble and fun to operate. So far I've cut Ponderosa Pine, Juniper and Russian Olive. I have made a couple small sheds and I am planning some bigger projects. I would recommend this sawmill to anyone.

Here are some pictures of projects completed and well as lumber that was sawed with the mill. House truss, Sunroom addition,  8 x 16' truss beams, 16' aspen logs sawn for house, Stacks of lumber, one truckload of about 25 loads sawed. I cleared  5 acres of land and produced approximately 25000 board feet of lumber. Species sawed : Birch,  Spruce,  Fir,  Cherry and Aspen Great saw when you get used to using it. No issues with the saw at all.

Just want to let people know the hm126 is not just a hobby mill. I run mine commercially every day and average 1400 board ft. Myself and a man that helps me make a living with this mill. Its a very well built piece of equipment.  The wood we are milling is white oak which is tough but this little mill just keeps on going.

The HM 126 has performed well while cutting through douglas fir. The staff at Woodland Mills have been more than helpful when I've called with questions as well as when I'm online. Now... sundeck ,pergola gazebo, bench and rustic furniture. I will also be sawing board and batten siding for my shop. Thanks again for all of your help. Tip: if you soak steel wool in vinegar and brush it onto rough cut wood it appears to be old looking.

  Finally stopped raining in Texas! Set a post and beam foundation for the mill and made some major progress setting up. A few more afternoons after work doing final assembly and dial-in and I will be cutting wood!   Here's a better photo of the frame. Owning/operating my own deck company came in handy. 4x4 posts in 24" cement 4' on center with 4x8 and 4x10 beams. Beams were leveled, then the mill set on top. Leveling the track was fairly easy. Feet are screwed to the beams. Underneath... Plenty of room for clean out.   Kelly Hanna   Update: First project using the wood I cut the first day I used the mill. Aromatic cedar vanity top with live edge front and breadboard live edge side. I cut this tree down a few years ago at a friend's house and kept a 5 ft section. The vanity is going to a client for his master bathroom. Kelly Hanna Woodworks hannawoodworks.com facebook.com/hannawoodworks   2nd Update: The second cutting job I did on my new sawmill was for a friend. We took 24' cedars and cut two sides flat to use as beams for a peaked roof deck cover. The deck was built using reclaimed wood a few years ago. Today we set all four beams on top of our cedar tree 'posts' using a bobcat to lift them.   Just finished this antique Singer sewing table frame with an Osage Orange (Bois D'Arc) top. Cut the limb off my tree and milled it on the 126. It has some bore damage, but I call it a wormwood live edge!     Update: I just cut three slices of Redwood from an old beam I had in the shop on the mill for a new vanity top for our new home. We are buying two acres with a house on it nearby and this will be in the master bathroom under the two sinks. The top is in the glue up stage in the pic.  Update: So my latest client's job entails using 4x10 beams, but no one stocks them in Dallas and his trees were not big enough to cut that big of a beam ...so I fired up the sawmill and cut 4x12s [four of them] at the same time!

Ran your mill today and it is a good product. Sawed oak and popular logs. Works Great!!! Update: Hey Lori, been doing good. I'd say the logs probably weigh about 1000 to 1500lbs that's me guessing.  Here is a picture of so cedar I sawed and put on my walls and a table I made out of cedar.

Hi Neil, We cut a fair bit of wood on this setup. The mill has been working great. We decided we didn't want to transport our mill around since our woodlot is right behind this setup. So we poured a concrete slab and bolted the mill to this which we like. Don't have to level the mill anymore and easy to keep clean. We also got a frame from a old mobile trailer and set up as a brow, keeps the logs up off the ground and very easy to load on to the mill. We are just in the process of sawing out board and baton for our cottage 32'x36' and will send pics when done. Enjoying the mill.

Hi ~ I spoke with a nice lady today and ordered more blade she’s sending me blades some hat’s and a up grade kit for the hand crank up and down to lock it in place to stop the drift .This is one great machine I have sawed 19.5 wide walnut lumber and the saw cut it so strait and true my customer told me I could cut it 1 inch thick instead of 5/4 that he had asked for and told me this was the truest he had ever bought . I just love the performance of the mill and the easy of maintenance.  Here’s some pictures of wood I have cut and the chicken coop I built using board and batten technic.  Thanks for building a quality and affordable mill.

Good morning Lori, Thanks for taking care of my toggle clamp problem so quickly. I’m attaching a couple pictures for you.  I tried to find something out of the ordinary, since everybody has seen stacks of lumber.  I had a little end of and red cedar log laying around that was too small to be anything but a post really so I decided to cut it into an octagonal post (the first of two) to use on a little hunting cabin I’m getting ready to build.  I made up some v-blocks to hold the cant and quite quickly had my octagon.  I made the blocks on the bottom so that when turned upside down for the third and fourth cuts they would hold the cant at the correct height to match the first two cuts.  That eliminated changing the blade height and made it easier to have 8 equal facets.  It all worked just like it was supposed to and I ended up with a perfect octagonal post.  While the thing was still on the mill, I made the cuts for the notches at the top with the mill and then finished the shoulder cuts with the cordless saw in the picture.  One of the things I was impressed with when I got the mill was the fit and finish of the unit.  I’ve assembled a lot of machinery and usually have to chase threads to remove paint or swarf, but all the threads were clear and ready to go.  All the sharp edges were removed on milled parts and milling marks were minimal.  It was noticeably better in these areas.  I think the mill is a good value and it obviously comes from a company that pays attention to detail.

I had to wait 5 days after I got my mill before I could even take it out of the box as it poured. Have already milled some western red cedar for siding for our new house, wish I could send more pictures but my I-pad will only send a few at a time. Made some spruce beams for guard rails at the new house also, and am currently building a lean too shed to protect the mill during bad weather. Thanks for the fabulous mill.

  When I first got my mill, I had it delivered to my house in the city and then had to transport it myself up to my cabin.  The set up was relatively easy, I had it set up, levelled and cutting by the next day.  It took me some time, and lots of sawdust, to get used to it.  I have never had, run or had any contact with a mill before this.  I was able to convert a 10’ X 12” log into a 2X4 in no time.  I get better efficiency every time I use it.  I am committing myself to using only deadfall logs and there is no shortage of newly fallen deadfall around my cabin.  To feel productive, I built this smoke house making all the dimensional and planks out of one log.  I used the wane wood for decorative trim on it.  Of course I have been criticized for the design  but I like it.  I smoked up some fish from the lake, some ribs and a chicken so far.  Next summer I start my storage shed to get experience with joinery and then a shop.

Got your mill in fall of 2013, set it up and milled 2 test logs before the winter set in. Over the winter my rickety wood shed collapsed due to snow weight, so I knew what my first spring project was going to be with my mill!! A new ‘shed’. I milled 6x6 post beams, and all the rest was ash and some poplar. Only wood in the photo’s that wasn’t milled was some trusses I got off of a neighbor of mine, everything else is milled from logs cut on my property! Once I got over the small learning curve, it was easy. Very happy with the mill(and the price!). I have a neighbor who has a $10+ mill, and you can’t tell the difference in quality of finished product.

Last summer I purchased your HM126 for use on a small Gulf Island (BC) property we have. Our island has a number of blow downs each year and being on the ocean in BC we get a few logs on our beach that break away from log booms, although there are far fewer logs than in years past given how logs are now transported. There are a variety of species including; D Fir, Pacific Silver Fir, Red Cedar, Arbutus, Hemlock, Maple, ew and Alder, which periodically roll up on our beach or blow over in a strong SE storm somewhere on our 150 acres. Being a DIY kind a person I wanted to be make use of them and what better way than a small band saw I thought. The 1st challenge was how to get the Mill to our Island?  I thought I would send along a few pictures to show how it was done. 1. From your factory the Mill was delivered to Maple Bay on Vancouver Island and placed a friend's pick up. 2. The pickup went the public dock at Crofton BC where it was loaded by"davit" onto another pal's boat.3. The Mill then crossed the 6 miles of water across the top end of Saltspring Island to our little Island. 4. We timed the crossing to get maximum tide to accommodate the lifting of the Mill out of the boat using our JD 150D 5. The JD excavator walked the Mill up the shore incline a carefully placing it a trailer that was pulled by a refurbished 1948 Massey Ferguson tractor hauled to our cottage. 6. The Mill is a heavy beast so I used the JD excavator to lift the Mill out of the trailer and began assembling... It was an interesting day for me and two close friends who made this exercise a great day adventure. The Mill has performed very well. It's already been used to mill wood for several projects. The next project is to build a home for the Mill to keep it better protected from the weather. You have a great product with this Mill.. I expect many years of service from it..

Steve & Alix ~ Acorn to Arabella
  Hey Lori,   This is Steve from the Acorn to Arabella project.   We are indeed building a sailboat with one of your mills.  The mill belongs to Nathan who mentioned our project to you.     This is the second time I have borrowed his mill, a few years ago I milled enough pine lumber for a 12'x38' woodshed along with butternut and sugar maple for the boat and some red oak for the frame of the boat house. The woodshed was built last fall and is being used to store and dry the lumber we are milling for Arabella. The boat shed will be constructed in the coming months while the wood for Arabella has a chance to season a bit.    Without the mill none of this would have been possible.  We would never have been able to afford the lumber and being able to mill whatever specific beams we need for the boat is priceless.       Currently we have a short, rough clip of the mill in action on the FB page.  We milled all last week and this past weekend and have a few hours of footage we need to look through and edit.  We will be posting a video of the milling by the middle of May, but we can certainly post a bunch of still shots of the mill in action in the very near future.  We have been milling white pine, white oak, red oak and sugar maple.    We would be ecstatic for Woodland Mills to share our project and would be very happy to help Woodland Mills in any way we can.  I have been very impressed with that little mill and would recommend it whole heartily.   If there is anything we can do or anything you would specifically like to see (we still have a bunch of logs to mill) we are happy to oblige.  Thanks for your interest in our crazy project!   Steve     http://www.acorntoarabella.com/ https://www.facebook.com/acorntoarabella/

  First off let me start by saying thank you for making an affordable product !! A product that will help create my house , my Father’s house, anyone who is building a home lol! We love building stuff with our hands and the HM126 is definitely fuel for our fire. We were just messing around with these logs but couldn't believe how many boards we got out of the them. Once again that u for making such an amazing product!!     Update: Thanks and we love our mill. Made a nice 18 inch cant all the way around. I think this log was around 28 on the small end and 30 something on the big end we had to cut it with the chainsaw several times before we could get a full pass

  Here are some pics of the setup we are using. Fabricated the trailer over the past winter and finally got around to mounting everything on. Pulls great, wide enough for the sawyer to walk beside the mill but not high enough to make it a pain getting on and off.... light and compact enough for me to tow it right in to the woodlot with my Ranger. Just finished a blue Spruce that blew down ‎in the neighbor’s yard. Made some nice planks for Deer stands. Once again, thanks for the top shelf, same day customer support...!!!!

  Hi Brenna. I love the mill and blade sharpener!  I put the mill on a 6x6 frame. I cut my first quarter sawn oak yesterday. It's mint.  I should be working on my firewood for next winter, but maybe I will burn slabs instead. All though I am not getting very much waste. I have been having way too much fun milling Thanks so much, your service has been great.   Thanks again gotta get cuttin'.

The mill is a high quality built mill with a lower price tag than some of the mills out there.   I milled our first beam towards our barn and I am slowly getting better at it. Here are a few pictures of the mill and our first beam. Thanks again for offering a high quality mill at an affordable price tag.   Yew

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I'm enjoying the new mill. I received it in about five days, and had it set up in a few hours with help from a couple of buddies. So far I'm very impressed with the quality of the mill, and ease of use. The only problem I have is now I'm not getting thing else done around the house! Thanks again for the quality of the product. For the money I think you get more than you'd expect!

  Ordered the mill on a Friday and received it on the next Thursday. Set it up and have been milling ever since! I've always wanted one and decided to take the plunge. Couldn't be happier with the results. Easy to set up, easy to use, and produces high quality lumber. Also ordered a ten pack of blades which turned out to be great foresight due to hitting metal in my first log with the OEM blade. Will be using it for years to come!! Joe Scolastico   Update: Lori, I love my mill! I've had it for about a year now and I've cut thousands of feet. Just recently built a trailer for it, pretty happy with how it came out!

Update: My wife helping with the chores. I will dry it in my kiln and set the pitch with heat. Next year the plan will be to soak them in a treatment and replace my decking.

When I need to be mobile I move the saw to my trailer. I can take my tractor with me to help load logs when I'm traveling with the saw, or I can haul my saw and lumber/logs at the same time. I can even haul my tractor and wood at the same time. A flexible set up that lets me have a mobile saw and still use my trailer for hauling.

Here's a picture of some aspen I took home and milled from Vail, Colorado.  Hi Lori, I really love my mill. In the summer I don't get to run it much because southeast Texas is very hot and humid. Here is the raw blue pine I built this truss with and here is some Aspen I harvested from Avon, Colorado and made a bar top. And last of all, here is red cedar taken from my family property and made into a mantle.

  Here are a few pics of my setup.  The little saw does a great job. I am very well pleased with the excellent Engineering that was applied to the construction of this product. I have salvaged several oak, cottonwood and hedge and other trees that would have rotted to nothing in my woods and timber.       I built a sub frame out of 2" by 10" bridge channel iron and mounted the complete woodland mill on top of this frame.  The sub frame is setting on top of telephone poles set 4 foot in the Clay ground. I set the logs on to the mill with my 1971 680C Case backhoe and I also turn the cants with my backhoe slip loop log chain.    I am very pleased with this little saw.  I have it mounted permanently but it is easily moved if need be.  I expect to have this a long time so I am building a little house just for the saw to be in when I am not using it.   I am 75 years old and this is a nice hobby for me and I own my timber.  The little Queensland Blue Healer is my companion 24-7.  I love it whether small or large it does a great job.  But just a reminder to all, it can only perform as well as it is installed.         Keith

  I purchased my HM-126 mill and T-Rex trailer back in 2013 before Manitoba boosted the provincial sales tax. I have finally set it up and started sawing some logs. I have an 80-acre woodlot in the Agassiz Provincial Forest and 75% of the mature Tamarack there have been hit by the Eastern Larch beetle. I plan to turn the standing dead Tamarack into beams for timber frame construction and boards for board and batten siding. The mill works great and the T-Rex trailer is perfect for getting around in the forest doing selective harvesting. I take one tree at a time and turn it into timbers, chips and firewood. I have a 300cc Polaris Explorer which has no problem pulling the T-Rex with a 19” Tamarack log @ 17’ on board and most importantly it leaves a small footprint in the forest.       Steve Ball

  First off, I have to say that customer service is freakin’ awesome. Has to be the most informed/ helpful and friendliest staff I have encountered. Now to the mill. This thing has done way more than advertised. I know it's rated for 26" logs but I have put 32" diameter hard maple though it.  It was slow around my area at first, but after 1 or 2 folks saw the quality of cuts my mill made I have been as wide open as a peanut hull 5 days a week. My most recent milling job was logs from an 1820's log home that made roughly 2000 brd ft. Full of old timey nails but i got the job done.  Most people don’t even worry about planing the lumber because the cuts are really good off the mill.  Included are several pics of projects, and lumber that all came thru my HM 126.  Thank you again for a great product, and knowledgeable staff. Regards  The Hackney's   Update: Building a Pre K classroom in a 135 yr old barn. All cut on my 126. Several different types of wood. ailanthus, pig nut hickory, hack berry, cedar, sassafras, and red oak.

  Good Day Janice,   My woodlands mill purchase has been a great experience and has brought my dream project into reality. I have salvaged old cedar power poles the power company has replaced (non-treated ones) and milled them to build our family cabin at our private campsite. It’s been a ton of fun! The mill has worked flawlessly, there has been a learning curve but there is lots of good support online even tips on sharpening the blades. I’ve milled all the beams, siding and trim boards for the exterior now working to finish the inside over the winter months…….have a look at some of the photos.   Brian

Hi Brenna; thought I would send some pictures of the new home for my new HM126 saw mill. First I would like to say that I absolutely love the HM126 and I am having a ball with it. I am trying to convince my wife that all the trees in our yard are sickly and need to come down (just kidding). I am very pleased with the product, help from the tech people, and the very pleasant purchasing experience thanks to Brenna who took my order. I chose to send pictures of my shed construction instead of me sawing logs because I searched the internet trying to get ideas on how to build a shed to keep my new saw in but could not find very much help. I hope the pictures can help someone when building their shed. First, I used 1/4" x 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" galvanized angle iron concreted in the ground for my main frame; this of course can be done by using heavy treated lumber instead. I used the angle iron because I had an opportunity to purchase a bunch of it a few years ago at scrap prices. Second, I built my shed at the end of my track instead of at the beginning; I did this so I would not have to step over the track extension every time I cranked the engine. I thought of another idea that might be of some help to someone; I noticed on some of the videos where a large log was being rotated that the track and the 6 x 6 wooden supports would lift off the ground a few inches so I took (4) 3 foot long pieces of rebarb and drilled holes in two of the 6 x 6s out toward the end of the track. I hammered 2 of them on the LH  side straight down through the wooden supports and into the ground. I put the other 2 pieces of rebarb on the RN side and hammered them through the wooden supports at an angle to help keep the rebarb from pulling out of the ground. I also welded small square pieces of steel to the end of the 4 pieces of rebarb which also helps to keep them from pulling out of the ground. I know this is probably boring to most people but I hope it helps at least one person. Again, I am very pleased with my HM126 and I feel like I chose the right saw mill, the right company and the right people to do business with. THANK YOU WOODLAND MILLS!!!

Melissa,   I got the mill a couple of weeks ago. The delivery guy was awesome. I was at work and he placed it right where my wife asked him too. It took me a couple of days to get it set up but that was due it being my first Mill and I spent half of that time getting the track exactly right (plus the holidays). I was impressed with the solid materials and the fact that the blade that came with the Mill did not require any adjustment. At least not on my first log. The shipping crate it comes in is very sturdy, all parts were there, and nothing was damaged. I decided to go with the Woodland Mill after researching all brands for months. What swayed me was the effort that the Woodland Mill folks put into their instructional videos, the low-cost shipping, and the fact that they keep creating new products. And of course, the sales people are good to work and the price is very competitive. Thanks for a quality product.   Bob P.S- I will be purchasing the stump grinder in the Spring for my tractor.

The sawmill was easily setup and running on the first day!  We set it up first in our barn with the concrete floor.  After getting it all dialed in we moved it to our old barn that is being converted into our sawmill.   We have produced about 600 BF of lumber so far. We had one small issued that was immediately addressed by your fine technical staff. This saw is great and we plan to use for years to come!  We love it!   Jim Richey

I really have enjoyed using the HM126 saw mill, I’ve used the mill to cut red cedar clap board siding for a log barn that’s was on the old part of my wife’s family farm. Last year I bought and moved the cedar log barn and reassembled it on our property to keep and preserve the history. John

My husband started talking about buying a sawmill years ago, but in 2016 he got serious about it and decided he needed a Woodland Mills Sawmill! After talking and planning, he ordered it at the beginning of this month. It was delivered on Monday (the 16th) and by yesterday (the 20th) he was milling his first log for a customer! He's a full-time firefighter here in our small-town in Oklahoma, but he wanted to start a sawmill business to run on his days off. His business is appropriately named Smalltown Sawmill & Furniture, and I'm so excited for him. I'll send a few photos I took yesterday as he worked on his first paying project, including one of him and our baby girl! I know he's looking forward to showing her how to use the mill someday.

One of my many projects made with logs from our acreage, milled with the HM 126 Woodland mill. Some of the larger pieces are the 3"x10" x 21' horizontal beams and the 8"x8"x16' support posts. I've owned the mill for 3 years now no issues and works awesome. The staff at Woodland mills is very courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful. Thanks again, Elmer

Janice, I want to thank you specifically, all at woodland mills! You make a great mill and product and render customer service like few companies do! I have included a few pictures of your mill, on a boat trailer frame, which I modified, and painted myself. I have since modified the trailer with a pipe and a hand winch, of which I've no photos yet, but I can now load logs on this trailer without a tractor. The mill runs great, and I've cut around 4000 board feet with no problems! I live in Northwest Arkansas, and I mill primarily hardwood. I have to keep the blades sharp, and change them regularly. The mill performs well, and has more than enough power! I have milled White Oak 24 inches at the butt end, and 20 inches at the small end 12 foot long... It took some doing, but am very happy with your product! Thank you and your prompt service! Brian The mill runs great, and I've cut around 4000 board feet with no problems!

Bought my 126 in Dec 2015, with intentions of building a cabin. Have cut 200 + spruce and pine logs. 864 sq. ft. floor is done. Built a pile of different things with basically the left-over pieces from building floor. LOVE my mill, only wish I got into sawing a long time ago. Can't say enough about the quality vs value of the saw. Also like the new head frame set up on the new 126's. Maybe an update for old 126's coming in the future? Keep up the great work! Peter Weidmann Update: Latest project. 90 pine logs. 2900 lineal feet of 1.5x6.25 T&G flooring, milled on an HM126. Planed on a 6x12 Beaver. Have made over 30,000 feet of cuts with my 126 to date, no major issues at all. Next delivery to cut 8000 lineal feet T&G planks and 960 feet of 4x8 beams. Love my mill!

I bought my Woodland Mills Sawmill in 2014.  This has been the most fun tool I have ever had.  I set the mill up on our property in the northwest corner of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.  There is a nice pine grove there, and plenty of ash, and poplar also. For our first project, we made siding logs out of pine for an old cabin that we had purchased.  Before and after pictures are attached. This past summer our main project was to build a sawmill shanty.  Now we can work in the rain.  We also have approximately 400 more siding logs to side our cabin on the mill property.  That will be this summer’s project. I have enjoyed my sawmill very much, and look forward to many years of using it Thank you, Ken Moore

I haven’t had any major issues with the mill and it has sawed everything I have loaded on it. I milled the lumber to build a lean-to on my 70-year-old barn to put the mill in. Also, milled the 6x6‘s and 8x8’s to build a base for the mill. Thanks for a great mill! The customer service is great! Phillip South

Ronald Smock
2/17/2017 A cabin for Sophia  The Monroe News By Ray Kisonas Monroe News staff reporter   DUNDEE TOWNSHIP — One day Sophia and her Papa were riding his tractor through the woods on his property off W. Dunbar Rd. when the first-grader had an idea. Since the 7-year-old enjoyed the 10½ acres of woods so much, she thought it would be nice if she had her own house. "What kind of house?" her Papa asked. "A log house," the granddaughter replied. So he spontaneously found a nice, flat spot in the woods. Then, using his tractor, he dragged a 9-foot cherrywood log with a 10-inch diameter, and plopped it onto the ground. Thus began the first stages of the construction of Sophia's cabin. Without any plans or blueprints or even preparation, Ronald Smock started building. He used trees that fell in the woods, stripped the bark from the logs by hand and created a little girl's dream play house. "I didn't know nothin'," Mr. Smock said. "I just kind of stumbled along. I'm planning as I go." After starting on a whim that Nov. 1, Mr. Smock kept going until the cabin in the woods is nearly done. With a solid roof and about 50 square feet of interior play space, the house needs a few final touches before the next time Sophia comes to visit. "She loves to live here and play in our yard," said Mr. Smock's wife, Pam, also known as Grandma. "She loves it here." Sophia, who had attended Summerfield Schools, moved to Sault Ste. Marie. She is expected to have a brief visit in March, then a long stay during the summer. The Smocks will be ready and Sophia's cabin will be waiting. A retired machine repairman at Ford, Mr. Smock, 75 in May, worked on the cabin using what he had. But then he decided he needed help to make the structure proper, so he invested in a saw mill and supplies. The $4,500 mill and extensions can handle logs up to 16 feet long and 26 inches in diameter. It was a huge help to cut boards for the roof and floor. The cabin, with 5-foot walls and an 8-foot center, will provide plenty of space for Sophia and her friends to play. Plus, it's sturdy. That was proven when Mr. Smock accidentally bumped the walls with his tractor and the cabin didn't budge. "I didn't want it flimsy," he said. With two windows near the roof peak to allow light, Mr. Smock will design a system where the door can't be locked either from the inside or outside for safety reasons. He still needs to install the maple flooring and plans to fill the gaps between logs with corn cobs and caulk. "I gotta keep the bees out," he said. "We have a lot of problems with bees." Soon it will be finished, including a brass-colored mailbox with Sophia's name on it, and this labor of love will be standing sturdy and ready for a lucky little girl whose Papa isn't a builder but willing to learn if it makes her happy. http://www.monroenews.com/news/20170214/cabin­for­sophia

It's handled it all well above my expectations. Loving this mill. We are true believers in your products, and am very happy I chose your brand over the other two I was looking at.

Need to make a few adjustments but it cuts pretty good and I am well pleased. I see a few more bee hives in the near future. A 21" green maple is about too much for 1 man to handle without a helper.

I have been looking at the HM126 for 4 years now and finally pulled the trigger. I single handedly assembled and set up the mill in a day (with tractor). The following day I did the tracking and an hour later I milled my first log. So far I have milled several spruce and cedar all 10' in length, but I can tell what type of saw I have purchased. This mill does an amazing job and Woodland Mills deserves a Nobel Prize for designing an affordable, RUGGED, easy-to-use, board slicing/beam making, saw dust throwing MACHINE! -Thanks Update: All siding and barn doors were sawn with my 126.

Good morning, I just wanted to send yall a picture. I also wanted to thank the company for making an affordable yet quality mill.  I've had mine sawing lumber for a few months now and and have had no complaints other than not having enough time to saw more.  This mill will cut logs bigger than you want to load and roll by hand!

HI Lori, We are still having drenching rains (10" so far this month, so I have a hard time getting to my logs.  I did get several logs milled and sold some lumber.  Hoping August is drier.  I am sending some pictures of a work bench I am building in my barn.  This is a 7' section of what will end up as a 24' bench.  This is lumber from my mill. I have had several visitors asking about the mill and I tell them all I love it and it is easy to use. If all goes well, I plan to build a 2 bedroom, 2 bath cabin next spring.

I have four sons and we are enjoying the Woodland 126 Sawmill very much. First order of business when we got the mill operational was to saw lumber and put it in a makeshift kiln then build a shed over the mill. We did purchase a few treated post but for the most part the shed was built using lumber we sawed. The roof was from some metal scavenged from a re-roof of my sons house.A storm came thru and blew over an oak tree in my sons yard so naturally we put it on the mill. A co-worker was clearing some land for a pond and gave us the pine trees that were pushed down. With a little hard work transporting the trees we now have enough to saw for a while. I am very pleased with the Woodlands mill and have since purchased a track extension so that we can saw 16 feet lumber. Now that our sawmill shed is mostly complete, we are on a mission to saw a lot of lumber! The people at Woodlands were great to work with and they answered any questions and the product in my opinion is a great value. Thank each of you for your great product and service! Kenneth J.

I was just enjoying an album showing all the great things that can come from owning your own sawmill. This prompted me to get together an album of my own showing a lot of the things I have done in just 2 short years with mine. My wife and I have built a great business (renting treehouses), and could NEVER have done it without our $4000 investment in our mill. Hopefully this can inspire some of you that are still on the fence about buying a mill. Truth is, they are priceless! Thanks - it has been a ton of work, and the mill has held up amazing throughout the entire project (3 years). TimberStone Adventures Inc. - Maine Treehouse Rentals & Disc Golf www.timberstoneadventures.com   And it is an awesome mill for the money, actually has been through a lot more than this. You can see the entire property that's been milled/built here www.facebook.com/timberstoneadventures Update: Latest project: 2 Months, 60+ hour weeks, 1200' elevation - and a lot of blood, sweat, and tears later...... 5 story livable lighthouse/tower, on the very top of our mountain. 100% milled/built on site. I logged and loaded the mill with a small 4x4 atv(with 10,000# winch mounted on the front) and several series of pulleys/cable scattered throughout the forest. The only electric power tool used to build was a portable 20v impact drill, most everything was cut with homemade onsite jigs and the chainsaw (I used over 5 gallons of chainsaw gas for this project). The ATV and mill were winched up the mountainside on the cable bridge that I built this Spring(can be seen in pics). The views are of all the Western Maine Mountains & White Mountains of NH. The tower can only be accessed by foot through our hiking trails, and the entire mountain top is bordered by 1000's of acres of the White Mountain National Forest. The interior and solar power installation are next, then a good long break for this guy!

Hi Lori, I am very pleased with my HM126 mill and within the few months since my purchase I’ve utilized the mill to produce a wide variety of lumber which I’ve used to build several projects including a restoration of a 1940’s cottage.  The original lumber was all hand milled and consisted of full dimension lumber which I was able to easily re-create with the HM126.  Being new to bandsaw milling, I found that I was immediately able to produce good boards with little waste, thanks to the precision of the mill and the excellent videos on the Woodland Mills website!  I’m in the process of building a trailer to make the mill more portable.

Hi Lori,  I bought my HM126 sawmill in 2012 after a visit to the local hardware store for lumber prices, which were outrageous. I set my sights on a mill to saw my own lumber. I searched the web and looked at many brands of mills but the cost of them were as ridiculous as the lumber prices at the hardware store.  Then I came across the Woodland Mills website and the HM126.  After watching the videos of the saw, I decided to place an order for the saw and a box of blades.  Within a couple of weeks, I was sawing my very own lumber and began to build my cabin at the lake.  It is now 2017 and my mill is still sawing lumber with ease and has allowed me to build many projects from cabins, to chicken coops, barns, garages, work and storage sheds and not to mention, the hardwoods for furniture projects.  I can say I am truly pleased with the HM126 sawmill, it's low cost and ease of maintenance.  Put simply, its the little saw that handles it all!  It has saved me thousands of dollars in lumber costs.  I am proud to say I am a Woodland Mills HM126 sawmill owner.

I bought the hm 126 extra track and am cutting 16.5' logs. I fell in love with it on the first plank. I had to run people off because they liked the planks too. Seriously this saw is so easy to use and the wood is straight and true. One thing there is a lot of debris so i was needing to move the mill. problem solved i put it on a custom trailer. An atv wench and steel ramps and I am off to the woods. I am very pleased with my mill, it was a lot of work setting it up on the floor but good exercise. Other tools needed a can't hook, metal finder and ramps. i've wanted a mill for years and i did a lot of research and I got what I wanted for a very good price. Oh the cuts are fine -no groves .

Hello everyone, I bought a HM126 in the spring but due to sickness i did not start using the mill since the last few weeks. Still i did over a 1000 feet in boards in the last days. I am a woodworker and i can now mill all of my hard and soft wood. this gives me the ability to complete the loop from the tree to the finished furniture right from my shop. The mill does an excellent job,  the blades are of a good quality, customer service and support is really good.  I really appreciate the performance of the mill.  french text follow: Bonjour, J'ai acheté un HM126 le printemps passé, la scierie fonctionne super bien et elle est très performante. Le service après vente est excellent et je ne regrette  pas cet achat.

Good morning Lori.   Here’s a short review and some photos of my HM126.  I shopped around for almost three years prior to purchasing the Woodland Mills HM126.  What “made the sale” for me was the value for an occasional user like me and Woodland’s reputation for excellent customer service.   I was very surprised by how quickly the saw arrived.  It was delivered to my home within less than a week of placing the online order. There were no hidden charges as there are with some other sellers.  Everything is up front and exactly as quoted by Woodland Mills.   Right out of the box I was very impressed by the construction of the saw.  The metal was much more heavy duty than I had expected.   Assembly took the better part of a day but was not too difficult even as a “one man” job.  I would suggest reading completely through the assembly manual before starting.  Assembling the saw on the rails made things much easier. The saw’s performance has exceeded my expectations in every way.  First I milled a large hickory for paneling and to make some furniture for the house.  The blade that came with the saw didn’t last long in the hickory.  I suggest having some extra blades on hand especially if milling hardwoods.  The saw had no problem handling the hickory.  The few problems I had could all be linked to operator error and just generally not knowing what I was doing.  There are a lot of video’s on youtube that will help with the learning curve.   Next I milled a large pine.  The HM126 cut through the pine like a hot knife through butter.  After a couple of Saturday mornings I now have enough lumber to construct a shed for the saw as well as repairs to some existing farm buildings that I’d been putting off due to high lumber costs.   The HM126 is a perfect saw for a landowner who wants to mill their own trees into lumber for use around the farm.  It is also a very handy addition for anyone who does woodworking, furniture building, etc.  As mentioned before, I made some really nice, rustic hickory paneling for the house.  The wife loves it!  Making “inside” work my first priority was a good strategy.  It  convinced the wife that the saw wasn’t a waste of money.  Now she asks me all the time what I’m going to saw next.  She already has several projects in mind for the lumber.  The only problem I’ve had with the saw was a broken clamp.  The folks at Woodland Mills replaced the clamp quickly with no problems.  Their customer service really is as good as advertised.  That’s a big deal when investing in a mill. Thanks! Tommy Ford

Melissa & Brenna, I wanted to send a quick photo of the HM126 I received from you at the end of Sept.  Your trekker trailers were not available at that time, but since I’ve been able to order the trailer and I’m expecting it to arrive in a couple days. I can’t wait for the trailer to be added to an already great little mill.  In the mean time, I've built a torsion box platform for the mill and have been cutting 1” spruce for various projects and some 1/2” reclaimed pine to be used on a bedroom wall.  When the trailer is in place I have several cords of 24” dia. red oak available to cut once.  Thank you for a great sawmill and terrific service. Thanks Again, Darwin  (Joslyn Woodworking) Update:Thank you!  The trekker trail arrived this afternoon, wow fast delivery! Here’s a quick picture of my HM126 on the new Trekker trailer. The trailer is well built and nicely done.

I’m 70 tears old and have been a contractor most of my life. I definitely got a lot more than I expected when my saw arrived. From the way it was delivered to the way it was packaged and all the way to cutting logs. Building high end homes in the Tampa Bay Area for as long as I have you can imagine the times I got disappointed, aggravated and mad due to what I received with expectations of quality. You all have got it together  and have done a great job on this saw. I am truly impressed. Thank You. Reggie Vadasz,  Vadasz Construction Inc.

Good evening Janice, As a long time craftsman and home builder I purchased my mill a few months ago with projects such these in mind.  (Attached photos cedar table and termite damaged black walnut bench)  I was able to take trees from our for that had fallen years ago and turn them into beatiful pieces that we use on a daily basis.  Thank you for creating a wood mill that is easy to use and affordable!!!!! Thanks again, Best Wishes,Ben. For more photos and reviews please check out our Facebook page and Weddingwire.com ben@rigmorhouse.com

Finally had some time to fire the saw up yesterday and the first log of the day was some Chinese Elm. I believe that's what it is anyway. Really nice look to it but can't say I've ever used it. Pretty though. The 126 is a well thought out saw and I love it so far. A funny quote for you,  my wife came back to watch me cut a log and said "I'm never going to get you to work on anything at the house am I". I told her probably not.

2/17/2017 A cabin for Sophia   The Monroe News By Ray Kisonas Monroe News staff reporter   DUNDEE TOWNSHIP — One day Sophia and her Papa were riding his tractor through the woods on his property off W. Dunbar Rd. when the first-grader had an idea. Since the 7-year-old enjoyed the 10½ acres of woods so much, she thought it would be nice if she had her own house. "What kind of house?" her Papa asked. "A log house," the granddaughter replied. So he spontaneously found a nice, flat spot in the woods. Then, using his tractor, he dragged a 9-foot cherrywood log with a 10-inch diameter, and plopped it onto the ground. Thus began the first stages of the construction of Sophia's cabin. Without any plans or blueprints or even preparation, Ronald Smock started building. He used trees that fell in the woods, stripped the bark from the logs by hand and created a little girl's dream play house. "I didn't know nothin'," Mr. Smock said. "I just kind of stumbled along. I'm planning as I go." After starting on a whim that Nov. 1, Mr. Smock kept going until the cabin in the woods is nearly done. With a solid roof and about 50 square feet of interior play space, the house needs a few final touches before the next time Sophia comes to visit. "She loves to live here and play in our yard," said Mr. Smock's wife, Pam, also known as Grandma. "She loves it here." Sophia, who had attended Summerfield Schools, moved to Sault Ste. Marie. She is expected to have a brief visit in March, then a long stay during the summer. The Smocks will be ready and Sophia's cabin will be waiting. A retired machine repairman at Ford, Mr. Smock, 75 in May, worked on the cabin using what he had. But then he decided he needed help to make the structure proper, so he invested in a saw mill and supplies. The $4,500 mill and extensions can handle logs up to 16 feet long and 26 inches in diameter. It was a huge help to cut boards for the roof and floor. The cabin, with 5-foot walls and an 8-foot center, will provide plenty of space for Sophia and her friends to play. Plus, it's sturdy. That was proven when Mr. Smock accidentally bumped the walls with his tractor and the cabin didn't budge. "I didn't want it flimsy," he said. With two windows near the roof peak to allow light, Mr. Smock will design a system where the door can't be locked either from the inside or outside for safety reasons. He still needs to install the maple flooring and plans to fill the gaps between logs with corn cobs and caulk. "I gotta keep the bees out," he said. "We have a lot of problems with bees." Soon it will be finished, including a brass-colored mailbox with Sophia's name on it, and this labor of love will be standing sturdy and ready for a lucky little girl whose Papa isn't a builder but willing to learn if it makes her happy.

Good after noon, Just a few pics from when we were cutting lumber. We were very impressed with what this mill could do. Cut a log 26" in diam. and it worked just fine.

I bought my mill after spending 3000.00 on one side of my cedar fence. I milled wood for the other side and the mill paid for itself . Love my hm126. Thanks, Best investment ever.

Love sawing and seeing the beautiful grains of a variety of wood. I have built furniture and buildings.  The table is Yellow Birch, a rustic bench and a chicken coop I built. I also have a log cabin and a barn in my plans.

Bought some property and cut hemlock and spruce. Using some pine giving to me , this cabin is a tremendous savings. Go compare buying lumber versus making it. To put it clearly ; I will have milled out enough lumber to build a 14'x20 cabin and in the end this sawmill owes me nothing. Good design and great small landowner/ hobbyist mill.

I have the HM126 and Trekker trailer. Build went well. Lots of nuts and bolts but a solid build for sure !!! Trailers like a dream. No worries pulling it 150 miles to my cabin. Plenty of tongue weight with the thick steel in this trailer. Woodland actually gives you the dimension from theI rear of the trailer to drill the lock pins. Seems spot on so far. Im sure they did their home work .

These are pictures of a deadhead my neighbour brought me from the river (Bonnechere River, Eganville) near my place. He thinks it had been submerged for 100 years and is a remnant of the log drives from the early 1900’s. I sawed 120 fbm from this white pine log using my HM 126.

Our kudos to all at Woodland Mills, from sales to service and support! We purchased our HM126 after much research of many other sawmills on the market. The HM126 arrived in a timely manner, well packaged and without damage. Assembly was easy and after setting up it started right off. We have a neighbor with a Woodmizer and he was very impressed with the ease of use of our mill compared to his, and also with the price. This winter we are building a trailer to truly make it portable. Your videos are very helpful and well done. We are looking forward to many years of milling. Again congratulations to all at Woodland Mills. Jim, Jim, and Dave

Restoring this woodshed. Slabwood from my mill, found a great use.. better than burning it. I have had such great experiences with these folks - from ordering, delivery, and running of the mill -I have to say, I was almost waiting for some major problem - but all have been excellent - I think with just halting my frequent trips to lumber yards for small projects - the mill has already paid for itself - and I have to confess. it is just damn fun turning logs into lumber - I am stockpiling 8"x8" beams to start my 32' X 12' mill building in the spring.. BUY ONE - you will love it! Update: My 126 works like a dream - all the slab wood it churned out seemed like such a waste, so I cut 1/2" slabs (til I get to my desired size to cut lumber), and use it for siding on my 100 year old woodshed to give it a facelift - also, thanks to the 126 the old shed was raised onto 4"X8" hemlock sills, and braced up with 4" X 4" fir. Now the old shed has another 100 years in it..  Thanks Woodland Mills!!!

I have enjoyed my Woodlands Mill. I have been impressed with the quality since the first day it arrived in the metal crate you shipped it in. I mounted the mill on a trailer to make it portable so I could move to job sites easily. The first weekend I used it my wife and I cut nearly 2000 board ft of 1"×16" Fir boards. It has been everything I hoped for. Dawayne Wyoming USA

Hello Lori, I am extremely satisfied with my mobile sawmill. It is easy to assemble, robust and handles very well. I started a small project for my cottage. I cannot wait for next summer to start a new building. Thank-you very much    Hi Lori, Bonjour, je suis extrêmement satisfait de ma scierie mobile. Elle est facile à monter, robuste et se manie très bien. J'ai commencé un petit projet pour mon chalet. J'ai déjà hâte à l'été prochain pour commencer un nouveau bâtiment. Merci beaucoup

Hi Lori, Here are a few pics... unfortunately I'm not sure how in chronological order they are... But in the pics I have me unloading, setting up, first cuts, first project of an outside shower stall, then the boards I milled for the board and batten which I show stacked ( there is about 3000 sq/ft of boards), then to burning process and the installation on the garage also a few pics of a maple and apple tree I milled... still lots of work to go, but in the end very please with the capabilities of the mill.   I would give it a 4/5.  This is my first experience using a mill so I have nothing to compare with.  The reality is most of the issues I've encountered are probably operator (me) related.  A few of the adjustments are a little difficult I found to get at such as tensioning of the drive belt via the motor mount bolts...
