Along with chainsaws and chisels, Bryce’s other tool of the trade that he couldn’t do without is his Peterson Portable Sawmill. With the extra power of a 27hp Kohler and versatility of a 10” cut blade, he says his Winch Production Frame is “just marvellous – I absolutely love it and it’s everything I wanted.”
Using only Macrocarpa for his furniture Bryce finds the Peterson cuts the wood beautifully while also being extremely efficient and so simple to use. So far he hasn’t had any problems and neither does he anticipate any, because of the high quality motor and craftsmanship of the mill.
To enable Bryce to get serious with his newly formed furniture making business, he needed to find a suitable sawmill that was easy to operate, reliable, accurate and productive. Having kept an eye on the portable sawmill market for 15 years, the Peterson mill has always stood out. Bryce has been impressed with the constant improvements and innovations that Peterson’s make each year, which he hasn’t seen in other similar products on the market.
So why did he choose a Peterson sawmill in the end? “Because it is a good quality product, the set up time is virtually nothing, and the service has been exceptional”.
Being true to its title the Peterson mill is also truly portable which has added an extra dimension to Bryce’s business opportunities, as he is now able to offer on-site portable milling.
