Peterson Portable Sawmills

Sawmill Photos from Peterson Portable Sawmill Operators

The portable swingblade sawmill concept was designed by Peterson Portable Sawmills in the 1980s , however, the concept is still somewhat of a mystery to many, particularly in North America where portable bandsaw mills have taken centre stage. To help educate the public on how Peterson’s swingblade sawmills are operated, we regularly publish sawmill photos, videos and stories of Peterson operators all around the world.

Many of these photos can be found right here on our website, and also on our Facebook page where anything from part-time sawmilling to commercial mill operations, woodworking to home building, is shared to showcase the versatility of Peterson. If you see a product or setup that interests you, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or flick us an email.

If you have a photo that you would like to send in, email it to us today, we would love to be able to share your story!
