All Terrain Sawmill (ATS)
A mill for tough conditions
The All Terrain Sawmill has been designed with remote locations and rough terrain in mind. It meets our clients’ demands for an affordable mill that can handle the tough conditions of farm, beach, snow or jungle.
The ATS uses a raised track system, allowing it to be assembled on nearly any terrain type – tracks are raised and lowered with winches at the operator’s end for more efficient portable sawmilling. An ATS makes milling valuable wood in hard-to-reach areas easy, and profitable.

ATS Owner Testimonials
“I use the double cutting much more than I ever expected to. I sure am glad I picked Peterson every time I double cut.” – S Postle, USA
“The ATS far exceeds my expectations on performance lumber recovery and ease of operation; I can’t understand why anyone would buy a band mill.” – D Jordon, NZ
