Pricelist reduced sizePeterson Portable Sawmills are the original designer of the world’s first commercial ‘swingblade’ portable sawmill. While other variations come and go, Petersons continue to be leaders in innovation and design in the milling industry.

Have you ever dreamed of building your own home with lumber from your property? Perhaps you’d like to start, or compliment your own custom sawmilling business? With a history spanning over two decades, our portable mills are the passion and livelihood of thousands of satisfied customers worldwide; from farmers and woodlot owners, to custom portable sawmillers and commercial operators who enjoy after-sales service that is second to none. With Peterson, it really is true that you get what you pay for; a well designed, efficient and versatile portable sawmill that will SAVE you money on running costs. Don’t settle for anything less.


Our sawmill blades pivot from horizontal to vertical to cut perfectly dimensioned boards.

Reports of increased productivity flow in weekly from commercial operators with some stating that the Peterson is the “best machine” they’ve ever purchased. Just one example is Australian sawmiller Andrew Smith who has almost doubled the production of his previous manual model sawmill (competitor brand) since he purchased a Peterson Automated Swingblade Mill. Take a look at this video of Andrew during his on-site ASM operation training; cutting hard wood with the touch of a button. Andrew now turns out 80 – 85 cross ties per day without breaking a sweat.

Why Choose Peterson Portable Sawmills?

“If I had to choose one favorite feature it would definitely be the portability. It was much better than I expected – I still can’t believe how easy she is to break down and move and set up again in no time flat.” – L. Green, USA – Read his Owners Story.

It is a proven fact that circular sawmill blades are far easier and more affordable to maintain than bandsaw blades. For evidence, Check out our Blade Maintenance Comparison Sheet.
