The backbone of any sawmill is its sawhead. The MN26 boasts the same patented laminated sawhead that’s at the core of all Norwood bandmills – the proven durable design that can withstand the everyday rigors of heavy milling. It’s not enough for the LumberMan to be able to just handle logs bigger across than oil barrels. You’ve got to maximize cuts per hour. Which is why 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 LumberMan MN26 is a user-friendly sawmill for first-time sawyers. The auto locking sawhead is a Norwood patented feature that allows you to adjust the sawhead height efficiently, without require unlocking and locking, so you can spend more time milling and less time adjusting. The heavy-duty centrifugal clutch safely engages the blade when you depress the push-handle-mounted throttle lever.
The MN26 portable sawmill's solid frame is a rigid 4-post carriage design which delivers superior stability and performance over torsionally weaker 2-post or cantilevered systems. This means straighter and smoother cuts for the sawyer. Dual fixed precision-machined and hardened blade guides support accurate cuts as wide as 19” (49cm).
The dual vertical-adjust, 3-function log rests optimize clamping of saw-logs, cants and boards. Also included is a screw-crank log-dog as standard equipment. Standard-equipped blade lubrication helps keep blades pitch-free. Available optional auto-lube system automatically turns water on and off each cut.
There are many ways you can customize your MN26 to suit your milling projects perfectly. Want to take your sawmill on the road to mill off-site? No problem! The Norwood LumberMan MN26 has an available optional trailer system. For perfect log-deck alignment, the LumberMan has available optional ten micro-adjust leveling stands.
