Hurdle Machine Works Inc., located in Moscow TN, has manufactured its 500th complete sawmill which will be delivered to Hoosier Pallets in Milroy, Indiana. Hurdle has sold complete mills in the U.S. since 1969, and has continuously improved the mill design. From Oregon to Maine to Texas – Hurdle mills are producing big-time ties, timbers, and lumber all over the country. The simplicity of the mill, along with its pure toughness and production capability have made this the go-to machine to handle all types of logs.

Over the past several years, mills have been sold to some of the largest wood manufacturers in the US. “We never thought that we would be doing business with companies the size of Anderson-Tully”, says Jeff Hurdle, VP. “When they came to Moscow to order their mill, they brought 10 people with them to help make the decision. Since then, they have installed the mill and have been sawing successfully producing lumber that adds to their operation. They love the mill”.

John Hurdle, VP says “We have a great crew helping us manufacture these mills. Dad is here every day which is a blessing. Between Jeff and I, we have 5 kids. Hopefully at least some of them can take over the business one day to keep it going”.

E.J. Hurdle, founder and President, says, “At first, nobody else would take a chance on me. After seeing the first mill work, orders started coming in. We've been perfecting these mills ever since”
