Say goodbye to the challenging chainsaw mill

Forget the slow, manual handling of the chainsaw mill. With a Turbosawmill, you'll no longer have to tirelessly position and turn each log. The automated feed system means you will only have to handle logs once, and the 180-degree access makes it safe and easy to recover timber.

Producing a wide range of different cuts is remarkably easy with a swing-blade sawmill. From sectional cuts to quarter sawing, Turbosawmill's removable attachments and guards offer unmatched milling opportunities.

Nothing beats the swing-blade sawmill advantage. Superior in accuracy, speed, production and recovery, Turbosawmill beats the chainsaw mill every time.

Why choose a swing-blade sawmill over a portable chainsaw mill

Large, rough logs are no match for the Turbosawmill. With its durable blade and flawless portable design, a Turbosawmill can cut through any log in any location, no matter how remote. Transport your portable swing-blade sawmill to your work site and have freshly cut lumber ready to use when you need it.

Unlike a chainsaw mill, the swing-blade sawmill cuts with extreme precision, maximizing the number of slabs from each log and minimizing waste. Lumber from a chainsaw mill requires wasteful and time-consuming resurfacing. Turbosawmill cuts are smooth, precise and ready to use.

Both the automated and manual mills offer superior safety features that prevent operators from engaging with the blade. Open side access means lumber won't get stuck between two tracks, and the safety guard keeps the operator clear of the blade. Despite safety attachments and guides, chainsaw blades can get stuck easily, causing the log to shift out of place and putting the operator at risk.
