Wood-Mizer, the world’s leading portable sawmill manufacturer, introduces new wide sawmill head options on their high production LT40, LT50 and LT70 hydraulic model portable sawmills. The wide saw head increases the maximum width of cut from 28” on the standard models to 34” on the wide head models.


The new Wood-Mizer sawmill options increase cutting capacity for mobile sawyers that require extra cutting width. Before now, this expanded width of cut was only available from specialized Wood-Mizer stationary sawmills such as the LT15WIDE sawmill with manual log handling and the industrial-sized WM1000 sawmill.



Cutting Capacity of Wide Head LT40, LT50, and LT70 Sawmills

-36" maximum log diameter
-34" maximum width of cut
-21' standard log length on LT40/LT50 and 20'2" on LT70 sawmills


“Wood-Mizer is always committed to providing timber processors with the best available products and features in the industry,” said Darryl Floyd, Wood-Mizer COO. “The new wide head sawmills give our sawyers more capacity for sawing wider slabs without sacrificing needs for mill mobility or lumber production.”

Wood-Mizer will offer the LT40 and LT50 wide head option for an additional $795 USD. The LT70 wide head option will be available for an additional $895 USD. The wide head option is currently available on new sawmills ordered in North and South America. Visit www.woodmizer.com or call 800.553.0182 to order.

Is it revolutionary? You be the judge – the new WSM Pin Chipper™ is a high capacity fiber preparation machine that converts lower value mill residuals (shavings and hogged wood) and alternate fiber supply sources into a high percentage of “pin chips” with long fiber length for use in the Pulp & Paper Industry.

The WSM Pin Chipper™ is available in rotor diameters of 42”, 48”, and 60” and rotor lengths from 36” to 88” long and typically operates with 200 – 800 HP. Modular and adjustable tooling includes either rigid or swing hammers with replaceable tips, combined with modular sizing screens allow adjustment to product sizing. Field proven performance at rates up to 75 tph, and when combined with a WSM pre-screen the processing rate is confirmed at rates of 150+ tph. System integration into your woodyard is no problem – WSM offers complete infeed and outfeed options to help you supplement your chip supply with lower cost fiber from the WSM Pin Chipper™.

Need to see it to believe it? WSM’s test lab can process your material to demonstrate how the WSM Pin Chipper™ performs on your specific low cost fiber materials.

This machine isn’t for everyone – but where it’s a “fit” – it’s a game changer. If you are looking for a way to reduce incoming fiber cost and can handle a percentage of “pins” and “fines” in your pulping process, then the WSM Pin Chipper™ can deliver substantial value by expanding your sources of wood fiber, reducing hauling costs, and substituting high cost fiber with low cost fiber.

Indianapolis, IN – Wood-Mizer LLC, the world’s leading portable sawmill manufacturer, introduces the unique and aggressive Turbo 7 blade profile in the high-performance Wood-Mizer Bi-Metal blade product line.

With increased air flow and higher tooth penetration while sawing hardwoods, the Turbo 7 degree profile has received positive reports from high production, high horsepower, and high feed rate sawmilling operations throughout the world since its introduction in 2013. Previously only available in a standard 10 degree profile, the Bi-Metal blade product line now offers the Turbo 7 profile for a higher cut quality, faster feed rate, and longer-lasting blade especially when cutting abrasive and exotic wood species. Due to the high-alloy backing material and hardened tooth tip, Bi-Metal blades offer a combination of durability and fatigue resistance, enabling a sharp life that is up to 3 times longer than carbon blades.

“While Wood-Mizer is the world’s leading portable sawmill manufacturer, we also have a commitment to provide a variety of high-quality bandsaw blades to the market,” said John Storm, Wood-Mizer Blades Manager. “The Bi-Metal Turbo 7 blade is our latest addition in our extensive blade lineup and is ideal for sawing exotic and frozen hardwoods in a production sawmilling operation.”
