Wood-Mizer Introduces Entry-Level LX55 Portable Sawmill
Wood-Mizer launches a new entry-level sawmill for hobbyists and professionals
Wood-Mizer introduces the robust, entry-level LX55 portable sawmill designed for entry-level sawyers, hobbyists, and woodworkers. Starting at $4,495 USD, the LX55 portable sawmill replaces Wood-Mizer’s previous entry-level LT10 sawmill while providing a larger cut capacity, more power options, and many upgraded features.
Built in the USA, the LX55 saws up to 26” diameter logs into 22” wide boards and slabs. Powered by a 9.5HP gas, 14HP gas or 7HP electric power option, the LX55 features a simple and user-friendly operation by combining manual log handling with a quick sawhead up/down hand crank and a simple push feed system. In addition, the LX55 sawmill includes a low bed profile for easy loading of logs and quick-adjust log clamps and side supports for securing and turning logs on the bed.
A key innovation of the Wood-Mizer LX sawmill series includes the rigid LX Frame sawhead tower that holds the control panel, engine, and the sawmill head. The simple and sturdy sawmill design enables the LX55 to make accurate, precise cuts quickly and efficiently. In addition, the LX55 includes all operator controls opposite of the sawdust port for an improved operator experience.
