Made in the U.S.A. & Canada – All parts in the LumberMate LM29 are quality-built in Canada and the U.S.A. by highly-trained, highly-skilled operators with cutting-edge fabrication and machining technologies. Norwood does not make anything in China, Taiwan or Poland, like some other companies.
Industrial-Grade Powder-Coat – Like all forestry equipment bearing the Norwood name, the LumberMate is protected by industrial-grade powder-coat – electrostatically-applied, thermoset polymer cured under heat to create a hard finish which is much tougher than the old-fashioned spray paint used by other companies which is more prone to premature rust, chips and scratches.
Smooth Sawhead Feed – Guide the sawhead through the cut with finger-tip pressure – allows you to judge the best speed for smooth cuts through knots and denser core wood. No arm-numbing cranking.
Patented Auto-Lock Sawhead – Patented Norwood sawhead friction-winch system delivers easy, effortless vertical sawhead operation. Auto-locking sawhead eliminates two time-consuming operations at every cut – the LM29 looks after locking and unlocking the sawhead for every board you mill. That saves hours of wasted time and increases your production.
Blade-Guide Rollers – Precision-machined, hardened and zinc-dichromate-plated 1¼” blade-guide rollers each fitted with sealed double ball-bearings. Optional ceramic guides also available.
Sawdust Exhaust – Sawdust exhausts on far side of mill away from you – not at your feet and in your shoes like other sawmills.
Blade Lube System – Keeps the saw blade pitch-free in softwoods. Delivers water directly to the blade at the point of entry into the cut. Large custom-molded water bottle with wide-mouth filling port for easy refilling. Optional auto-lube system to automatically turn the flow of water on and off also available.
Comfort-Height Operator’s Station – Standard on the LumberMate LM29, the convenience and comfort of the ergonomic tilt operator’s station.
Easy Working Position – Elevate as desired for easy log loading or add the optional trailer system with support legs.
Log-Clamping System – Screw-crank log-dog and opposing dual vertical-adjust log-rests firmly clamp logs in the round, cants and boards as thin as 1” (2.5cm). 3-function log rests simplify clamping both logs in the round and squared cants, and rotating logs without hang-ups. Micro-precision log-rest adjusting bolts guarantee perfectly true 90-degree cuts.
Smooth-Action Carriage Wheels – Large CNC-machined upper carriage wheels fitted with sealed double bearings key to smooth, effortless rolling action. Rubber under-track wheels for extra security and stability.
Rock-Solid Stability – Rigid 4-post carriage frame and patented laminated sawhead construction deliver superior strength and torsional stability.
