Wood-Mizer Offers New Portable Sawmill
Wood-Mizer Products has introduced a new, manually-operated portable band sawmill. The new LT28 is designed for wood enthusiasts who want to saw part-time for a hobby or to supplement their income.
Wood-Mizerís announcement of the LT28 was made just weeks after the company introduced another portable band sawmill, the ultra-compact, entry level LT10 model.
The Wood-Mizer LT28 sawmill is powered by an 18 hp engine. It can saw logs up to 32 inches in diameter and 21 feet long. It will cut up to 200 board feet per hour using a manual crank and walk-along sawing technique, according to Wood-Mizer. The LT28 comes standard with a trailer package.
The LT28 is available with a number of power equipment options. For example, the optional power feed replaces the manual crank with an electronic drive system, and the log deck package features manual winch, log turner and toe boards.
"The new LT28 is a simple mill to run that doesnít sacrifice quality," said Dave Mann, vice president of Wood-Mizerís portable sawmill division. "As one of our entry level models, we anticipate that it will get many people started in portable sawmilling."
