Peterson Portable Sawmills

All Terrain Sawmill by Peterson Portable Sawmills

The All Terrain Sawmill by Peterson Portable Sawmills was designed in the jungles of Fiji in the 1980s. It is the original commercial swingblade sawmill and continues to be popular in the Islands, and in other areas where the terrain is not level.

The ATS track design enables the mill to be set up on uneven ground, allowing the log to be cut to perfect dimensions. It can be carried into remote areas easily, and has been known to be transported by canoe, pulled by a donkey, and winched up steep inclines!
