Peterson Portable Sawmills

Peterson Portable Sawmill Features

Peterson Portable Sawmill features far outweigh those of cheaper imitations, not only in quality, but in efficiency and versatility as well.

Some of the portable sawmill features that make Peterson the sawmiller’s choice are the Hi/Lo track set up on the WPF and ASM models, the elevated saw engine, operator’s end sizing winches and more powerful motor options. The Peterson range also offer accessories to increase profitability for mill owners including a clip-on slabbing unit, planer blade and now even a sanding disc!

Peterson can’t be beat on portable sawmill features, see specific milling advantages below.
