The sawyer favourite HM126 Portable Sawmill just got even better. Cut your own lumber for cabins, decks, siding and more. Perfect for hobby sawyers, entrepreneurs or seasoned woodworkers. The HM126 can cut 26" (66cm) diameter logs, producing boards up to 24” (61cm) wide and up to 10’ 5” (3.1m) in length. Constructed using a 4 post saw head design with a tubular back beam that provides the ultimate rigidity ensuring smooth and accurate cuts. The head moves up and down along galvanized steel posts via an easy to turn hand crank system. Powered by a reliable 9.5HP or 14HP 4-cycle Kohler gas engine options. The HM126 is loaded with new and innovative features like the automatic blade lubricant system that activates when the throttle is engaged and the RapidChange™ blade system for quick and tool-less blade changes. The HM126 portable sawmill is accurate, smooth and engineered to be the best value in its class.
The HM126 can cut 26" (66cm) diameter logs and mill live edge boards at up to 24” (61cm) wide. Cut logs 10’ 5” (3.1m) long with the standard track configuration or unlock unlimited length potential with optional 6’ 5” (1.95m) track extensions. It can also skim veneers at as thin as 1/16" (2mm). The HM126 will cut within 1" (25mm) of the deck ensuring you maximize your usable board foot output.
Powered by a reliable 9.5HP or 14HP recoil start 4-cycle Kohler gas/petrol engine. Featuring a slant cylinder design with a cast iron cylinder bore and an overhead valve for easy access. The Quad-Clean 4-stage air filtration system ensures only clean air enters the engine for maximum power and life of the engine. Attached to the engine is an industrial centrifugal clutch system for easy gas-and-go operation. Backed by a 3-year Kohler commercial warranty.
The HM126 sawmill head rolls along rigid 2.5″ x 4″ (63mm x 101mm) “L” channel which is cross supported with heavy-duty 3″ x 6″ (76mm x 152mm) rectangle tube. These cross supports ensure the weight of the log is dispersed over a large bearing surface to avoid marking the log with indentation and provide additional rigidity to the track system. The track also features a simple adjustable quick lock log clamp to securely hold the log while milling. The track itself consists of two 6’ 5” (1.95m) sections allowing for 10’ 5” (3.1m) log lengths. Additional 6’ 5” (1.95m) tracks may be attached to accommodate logs of any length.
Super precise and consistent control. Simply push the handle in and rotate through 16 locking locations to move the sawhead up or down. Coupled with an acme lead screw, you’ll get super accurate adjustments within 1/64” accuracy. Traditional magnetic log scale rulers are also included to line up your cuts.
Keep the guides close to the wood being cut and reduce blade wander. The Auto Locking Adjustable Blade Guide is constructed using stainless steel v-rollers and a matched machined aluminum arm making it a premium system over traditional adjustable blade guides. It comes standard on the 14HP HM126 and can be purchased as an optional accessory with the 9.5HP model.
The throttle handle engages the engine RPM, saw blade and auto lube system simultaneously. This system makes the process of cutting lumber quick and efficient and reduces the number of steps required by the operator. The throttle handle position can also be adjusted for comfort depending on track height.
Exclusive to Woodland Mills is the RapidChange™ blade system. This is a tool-less approach for changing blades quickly and reduces the amount of blade tracking adjustments between blade changes. A stack of Belleville washers act as a shock absorber for the blade while giving consistent blade tension in all temperatures ensuring less stress on your blades.
The HM126 utilizes 1.25″ x 144″ x 0.042″ (32mm x 3660mm x 1.0mm) hardened tipped blades which are available through Woodland Mills. Blade kerf is kept to a minimum at just .080″ (2mm) to maximize the most amount of lumber per log.
Move your HM126 between locations with the Woodlander™ trailer. Packaged together, the HM126 Woodlander trailer provides you with mobility to bring the sawmill to different work sites or easily move into storage. Levelling jacks are provided so you can quickly level the trailer and tracks when deployed.
