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.

Easy Set-up

The ATS can be set up in around 15 – 30 minutes by yourself, and around 10 – 20 minutes with two people. The mill is packed down in under 10 minutes.

1. Set up the skids at the ends of the log.
2. Install the uprights and peg the diagonals into the ground.
3. Clip in the tracks and ensure they are parallel by looking down them at eye level.
4. Clip in the telescopic winding shaft.
5. Wheel the carriage to the tracks and install, then raise the tracks.
6. Remove the jockey wheels. The sawing process can now begin.
