Peterson Portable Sawmills

Portable Sawmill Operator Profiles

For many, becoming a portable sawmill operator is a natural path, with generations of foresters, lumberjacks and woodworkers in their ancestry. For others, it’s a huge learning curve with many twists and turns on the way to becoming a proficient operator. Peterson Portable Sawmills are well aware of this, and that’s why we offer comprehensive manuals, instruction videos, and seven day a week phone support to new mill owners.

Once a Peterson Portable Sawmill operator is comfortable with his mill, we start receiving photos and stories from them documenting their journey. We’ve included some of these tales in our operator profiles which feature tips and tricks from mill owners along with their favourite sawmill features and more!

From part time sawmillers to custom sawyers to commercial operators… while their work stories differ, they still share passion for their machines and lumber. Peterson call this, sawdustitis!
