LumberMate Pro MX34 Portable Sawmill Options


LumberMate Pro MX34 portable sawmill in fully hydraulic configuration.In mid-2013, Norwood Sawmills will launch a new, even bigger, even more capable super-size portable sawmill to meet the needs of its global customers.  Modeled after Norwood’s successful LumberMate Pro MX34-series sawmill, Norwood increased log capacity and added features to build the new LumberPro HD36.

Like the LumberMate Pro MX34, the new LumberPro HD36 can be manually configured, or be fully hydraulic, or a hybrid of both.  And, like every Norwood sawmill, the HD36 is quality-built in the U.S.A. and Canada.

Tailor your LumberMate Pro to match your sawmilling needs – now, or later as your milling operation grows.

Your band sawmill is a big investment in your future.  It’s a big investment in your family’s future.
It’s almost guaranteed that, sooner or later, your sawmilling jobs will get bigger.  You don’t want to be stuck with a sawmill that will let you down because it can’t grow with you.  You need a sawmill that can step up when the logs get bigger, the deadlines shorter, and the loads heavier.

The Pro is a big, high-capacity, heavy-duty sawmill that’ll keep all your options open.  Add manual, hydraulic and power functions at any time, in virtually any combination.  You decide when.

LumberMate MX34 Hydraulic Options

  • Harness the muscle of hydraulics: Load, roll, clamp and raise your logs with hydraulics.

  • Power-up your Pro: Set depth-of-cut, feed and offload boards by remote control.

  • Choice: Your LM Pro MX34 gives you the ultimate flexibility to take your milling operation in any direction … any time.

  • Flexibility: Build it up…  Power it up…  Choose manual, hydraulic or power functions … choose any optional accessory and build the sawmill that’s perfect for you.  



Manual Hydraulic Pump System for the Norwood Pro Hydraulic Portable Sawmill
Hydraulic Pump System (Manual) – A powerful and low-cost entry into hydraulically-powered log-handling capabilities. The manual hydraulic hand pump can power the hydraulic log loaders. Hand pump kit comes complete with bracket.
(Item No. LM34-HD-P2)



Powered Hydraulic Pump System for the LM Pro Hydraulic Portable Sawmill
Hydraulic Pump Systems (Integrated Power or Auxiliary 5hp Gas Power) – Power all your hydraulic attachments with either the optional integrated or the auxiliary hydraulic pump system. Both systems deliver reliable power to all your hydraulic log-handling attachments – log loaders, log clamping, log turner and toe boards.

Picking the right power system for you depends on your operation. Powering the hydraulic pump integrated with the sawmill engine eliminates the noise and hassle of an independent pump powered by a separate engine.  Powering the hydraulic pump with a separate (auxiliary) engine simplifies the system and provides constant and uninterrupted flow to all of the hydraulic attachments.

The integrated hydraulic pump system comes complete with the auxiliary alternator system & housing, hydraulic pump, deep-cycle/high- capacity battery, standard 8-section valve-body, hydraulic hoses & fittings, mounting brackets and hardware. (Item No. LM34-HD-P1) 
The auxiliary hydraulic pump system comes complete with a 5hp Honda GX gas engine, the hydraulic pump, standard 8-section valve-body, hydraulic hoses & fittings, mounting brackets and hardware.
(Item No. LM34-HD-P4)
*Briggs gas engine required. 23hp model recommended for integrated power pack.



Hydraulic Log Loaders on the LM Pro Hydraulic Portable Sawmill
Hydraulic Log Loaders – Load logs onto your log deck with a simple flick of a lever. The hydraulic log loaders can handle logs nearly 3000lbs (1360kg). Steel “spans” automatically drop down to bridge the gap between the loaders and your bed, and help protect your track. Engineered for easy removal and safe trailering, you can quickly remove the loaders from your mill in just minutes thanks to the quick-connect/disconnect pins and hydraulic fittings. The same quick-connect system means you can reinstall the loaders in just as little time. This system can be used with either the manual or power hydraulic pump system. (Item No. LM34-HD-41400)



Hydraulic Toe Boards on the LM Pro Hydraulic Portable Sawmill
Hydraulic Roller Toe Boards – Compensate for the natural taper in logs with toe boards. Increase lumber yield and increase the quality of your boards, by keeping the face of your cuts parallel to the grain. This is especially important when milling for grade. Each hydraulic roller toe board is equipped with a powerful hydraulic cylinder that can lift full-size logs up to 3 ½”.  A pair of roller toe boards also makes repositioning logs along the mill easier thanks to rugged integrated steel rollers. Toe boards can be used with either the manual or power hydraulic pump systems. (Item No. LM34-HD-41285)



Hydraulic Log Turner System on the LM Pro Hydraulic Portable Sawmill
Hydraulic Log Turner – Rolling big logs is virtually effortless with the hydraulic log turner. A hydraulic cylinder and hydraulic motor give you separate control of vertical and rotation functions. Features dual-direction rotation – turn your log in either direction. Equipped with deep-toothed chain, the log turner bites hard into gnarly bark to maximize traction.  Use the log turner to roll logs into position for the first, second and third cuts. The hydraulic log turner requires the power hydraulic pump system.
(Item No. LM34-HD-41500)



Hydraulic Log Clamping System on the LM Pro Hydraulic Portable Sawmill
Hydraulic Log Clamping System – Clamp logs with vise-like power with this combined hydraulic log rests and hydraulic log dog system. Raise and lower the twin log rests, simultaneously, simply by operating a single lever. Built of precision laser-cut ¾” steel, they can travel up to 12 ½” above the log deck to clamp full-size logs and down as low as 7/8” above the log deck to mill boards within 1” of the bed.  The four-way acting, dual-function, log dog not only gives you the dexterity and power to securely clamp even the biggest logs, the integrated four-way acting log dog can also be used to manipulate and turn cants. Because the log dog is not suitable for turning logs in the round, consider equipping your Pro with the hydraulic log turner to roll logs into position for the first, second and third cuts. The hydraulic log clamping system requires the power hydraulic pump system. (Item No. LM34-HD-41600)



Power Feed & Power Sawhead System for the Norwood Pro band sawmill
Power Feed & Power Sawhead – From a single hand-held remote, direct multiple functions on your Pro’s sawhead: set the depth-of-cut, control the throttle, activate the sawmill blade lube system and power the carriage through the cut … all while standing comfortably at the head of your sawmill.

Controlled by a 3-way momentary switch on the remote, the power drive motor with chain-drive system positively powers your saw carriage along the log deck, through the cut … and back.   Adjust your feed rate, on-the-go, thanks to the speed-adjusting dial integrated right into the remote control … speed up, or slow down, as you’re cutting, so you get smooth boards, every time.  The control panel is programmed to make all your power-feed transitions smooth – Stop  Forward, Stop  Reverse, and Forward  Reverse.  From the same remote, activate the dedicated 3-way momentary switch to raise and lower the sawhead. (Item No. LM34-PSH-5000) Add a chain kit for each 4-foot bed extension (Item No. LM34-PSH-5020)



Board Drag-Back (Board Return) System for the Power Feed & Power Sawhead-Equipped Norwood Pro Band Sawmill
Board Return – If your Pro is equipped with the remote-controlled power sawhead, you can boost production more by equipping your sawmill with the board return system.  When you power the carriage back after making a cut, the steel drag-back fingers firmly and steadily return the board to the head of the mill. Just direct each board into your waiting trailer or lumber pile. (Item No. LM34-PSH-5010)
