Norwood Sawmills, the leading global manufacturer of innovative portable sawmills, is excited to announce the addition of a new model to its lineup of quality portable sawmills.

The first big benefit that makes the LumberMan MN26 so appealing to do-it-yourselfers is that its beefy capacity comes at a relatively pint-sized cost (only $4,397). Equipped with a 420cc Briggs & Stratton engine, the LumberMan MN26 handles logs up to 26 inches in diameter and mills boards up to 17 inches wide.

The second big draw is how quick and easy the LumberMan MN26 makes it for owners to mill sizable piles of high-value lumber every day. Norwood invests heavily in research and development, focusing its efforts on technology that cuts the time it takes to mill a log into lumber. Norwood’s commitment to advancing the frontiers of portable sawmill innovation is proven by over 50 patents. The LumberMan MN26 is engineered to mill with faster cycle times using patented Norwood technology like auto-locking sawhead and available optional auto-lube.

The third key feature that makes the Norwood MN26 an ideal partner for hobbyists is its versatility. Typically, sawmills in such an affordable price range are very limited in capacity and capability. In contrast, the LumberMan MN26’s generous 26-inch capacity is just the start.

“No two jobs are the same,” explains Ashlynne Dale, Norwood Sawmills president. “And once you get into sawmilling, you will eventually find that you want to do more things with your mill, like trailer it places, or compensate for log taper, or speed up log loading and turning. With the LumberMan MN26, there are attachments you can add any time to do all those things and more.”

Norwood’s versatile modular attachment system means owners do not get trapped with a sawmill that cannot grow with their sawmilling needs. “The only regret Norwood owners feel,” concludes Dale, “is that they didn’t get a Norwood sawmill earlier.”
