Peterson WPF Portable Sawmill


⭕ Peterson Portable Sawmills has been manufacturing the swing blade portable sawmill for many years, selling mills all over the world. The swing blade sawmills utilize one circular blade that pivots horizontally and vertically to allow the operator to cut dimensional lumber to their own specifications. The Winch Production Frame (WPF) is Petersons most popular model, with its one-point raise and lower system for efficient adjustments, and Hi/Lo track system enabling the operator to load their logs under the high track or over the low track. The sawmill is easy to set up. On a fairly level piece of ground, you can set the two stands parallel and slotted the 6m standard tracks into them. Optional track extensions included. The main carriage has detachable wheels at one end, making it easy to move around by one person. When sliding the motor over the wheels, the other end can be lifted and the entire carriage, motor included, can be moved around like a wheelbarrow. Getting the carriage in place is simple. The blade is able to do a 250mm (10) cut in one pass, although it is easier on the motor and blade to do it in two smaller passes when cutting a wide board. You can also cut a board up to 500mm (20) wide by doing a double cut; this is easily achieved on the Peterson, by winding the mill across to the right-hand side of the main carriage and cutting in from the other side of the log. The blade has 10 tungsten tipped teeth that are quick and easy to sharpen without having to remove the blade. A tool supplied with the mill, called a Sharp Boy, gets connected to the mills battery and is manually operated to return the blade to like-new. Another thing I liked about this mill was that as you are milling through a log, you can pick and choose what size boards to cut, to best suit the grain of the wood and the quality of the log. It was handy to be able to cut out any cracks or defects then carry on without too much waste. This is a great opportunity for someone to get hands for a reliable and great Peterson sawmill. Delivery available. Owned from new, it is less than 3 years old. Selling to purchase a panel saw.
