When portability matters, you need the Weekend Warrior - our chainsaw-driven swing blade sawmill.

 

Convert your standard 70-120cc chainsaw into a productive swing-blade sawmill!

A True Innovation

Launched in early 2013, the Weekend Warrior was developed in association with the New Zealand government (Ministry of Science & Innovation) specifically to address the needs of the Pacific Islands market.

The sawmill is compact and light enough to carry into the bush and move from tree to tree, enabling you to recover timber productively and very cost-efficiently.

Assembly and disassembly is quick and easy.

Mill 4 Cubic Metres per Day

The Weekend Warrior offers a superb solution for the lower end production requirement of 800-1600bf (2-4 cubic metres) per day.

Perfect for the islands where forestation prevents access to high value logs, the arborist that needs value added or simply the weekend warrior.

Less Effort, More Production

If you are pushing the saw manually through the cut, weight is much more important than horsepower. The main swing blade cutting head weighs a mere 37kg, which makes moving the saw through the cut effortless!.

The Weekend Warrior sawmill also delivers full taper adjustability. You can easily align logs to the mill with the manual winch system - no more needing to jack up heavy logs.

Low Cost Investment

Purchasing a high production swing blade has never been more affordable - especially if you already have your own chainsaw!

Light & Incredibly Portable

This is the most portable swing-blade sawmill available on the market today.

The complete sawmill weighs just 165kg (including power head) and was designed to be very quickly and easily dismantled and reassembled.

The small footprint is ideal for bush milling.

Customers tell us their Weekend Warrior is easily transported from site to site, and easily carried from tree to tree by one or two men.
