Can the Log Moulder LX26 Handle It? — You Bet!

Supported by Norwood’s long history of innovation and attention to detail, the Log Moulder LX26 can finish boards and beams much bigger than traditional planers & moulders can.

Your sawmill is built specifically to handle full size logs, and the Log Moulder LX26 is designed to easily take full advantage of your sawmill’s muscle

Product Features

Maximum Efficiency

Your saw carriage and the Log Moulder LX26 work cooperatively on the log deck. It’s convenient and as simple as this: First, square your log. Second, simply guide your Log Moulder along the same track over the beam to finish to your exact specifications.

Reliable Power Plant

When you unleash the ample capacity of the tried and true 13hp Briggs & Stratton engine, you’ll always have more than enough power to the cutter head via a centrifugal clutch.

Finish Planks & Beams Up To 27” Wide

Reliably finish beams up to 27”W* x 21”H** (69cm x 53cm). The laterallyadjusting cutterhead housing slides up to 11” sideways, making it possible to plane surfaces up to 19” wide with one drum, or up to 27” when equipped with a second optional drum.

Extreme Log Length

Need to finish over-length timber? The LX26 won’t miss a beat. Simply add log deck extensions to lengthen your sawmill track and you’re in business.

Large-diameter Cutterhead Drums

A beefy 8” x 4 13/16” cutterhead outfitted with a pair of 8” corrugated HSS planing knives are standard equipment on the versatile LX26. Add a second optional 8” cutterhead to plane beams and planks up to 16” in a single pass (Item No. LX26-CH8).

Easy Chip Extraction

The Log Moulder LX26 doesn’t need additional chip extraction equipment. You’ll appreciate this simple but smart design element, as it makes things even easier for you.

Quick Knife Change-over & Adjustment

Change knives quickly and easily through the easy-access hatch. All you need are a 6mm Allen key and a set of locking & adjusting screws. A simple block ensures the knife edge is precisely where it needs to be.

Easily Adaptable To Multiple Sawmills

The Log Moulder LX26 is designed to adapt to a variety of sawmill models including Norwood’s HD36, LM29, MX34, & ML26. PLUS, it fits Norwood’s 2000, MK3 & MK4 series sawmills. The adjustable carriage wheels accommodate rails 31”-33-1/2” apart, and 40-1/2-43” apart (79cm-85cm & 103cm-110cm).

Low-shock Drive

The belt-drive transmission on the LX26 provides smooth operation, while minimizing the irritating shock and “chatter” of direct-drive mechanisms. When belt changing is required, no problem. The belt is tensioned in seconds by a single, easy-access tensioning ring between the motor and motor mount. You’re back to work in a quick ten minutes.


For maximum enjoyment of your LX26, everything is designed for low maintenance. For example, the powder-coated chassis means superior rust-resistance compared to ordinary wet-coat paint. The cutter bearings are sealed for maintenance-free operation, as is the drive motor. Just lubricate the transmission chain, sprockets, and trapezoidal threaded bars, clean out wood debris, and keep on cutting!

Opportunity To Unleash Your Creativity

For even more versatility and creativity, select from an array of optional shaped-knife packages to mould different log profiles. Fun and potentially profitable for you!

Precision Log Control

The LX26 has optional log posts for accurate, stable, and safe adjustment of ALL sized logs over the entire length of the bed. This allows extremely accurate positioning of the log to the left and right of the sawmill. The result? Perfectly conjoined log profiles from end to end (Item No. LX26-REST).
