Now you can produce beautiful wide live edge slabs for tabletops, counters, benches and more. The HM130MAX features a 30” (76cm) diameter log capacity matched with a 30” (76cm) throat opening allowing for sawyers to produce wider cuts. Get more horsepower with the included 14HP Kohler gas powered electric start engine. A heavy-duty 4 post head design with reinforced back beam support the serious HM130MAX cutting power. All major steel components are powder coated or galvanized steel. The HM130MAX 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 makes for quick and tool-less blade changes. HM130MAX is designed to be the most affordable and robust wide cut sawmill in the market.
We’ve widened the throat to match the maximum log diameter. This is what gives you the ability to slice right through 30” (76cm) logs without squaring the cant. 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. Unbelievable cut accuracy and precision lets you cut veneers as thin as 1/16” (2mm). Cut within 1” (25mm) of the deck ensuring you maximize your usable board foot output.
A reliable 14HP 4-cycle Kohler gas powered electric start engine powers the HM130MAX. Featuring a slant cylinder design with a cast iron cylinder bore and overhead valve for easy access. The Quad-Clean 4 stage air filtration systems ensures only clean air enters the engine for maximum power and engine lifecycle. The industrial centrifugal clutch offers easy gas-and-go operation. An electric and recoil start option come standard. A 12V battery is required for electric start and is not included with purchase.
The HM130MAX sawmill head rolls along a rigid 2.5″ x 4″ (63mm x 101mm) “L” channel which is cross supported with heavy-duty 3″ x 6″ (76mm x 152mm) rectangle channels. These cross supports ensure the weight of the log is dispersed over a large bearing surface to avoid marking the log with indentation. The cross supports are also covered with a stainless steel cap to prevent certain woods (such as oak) from being stained from contact with painted surfaces. These heavy-duty cross supports also provide additional rigidity to the track system. The track features two adjustable quick lock log clamps 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.
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 HM130MAX utilizes standard 1.25″ x 158″ x .042″ (32mm x 4013mm x 1mm) Lenox Woodmaster hardened tipped blades which are available through Woodland Mills. Maximize the most amount of lumber per log with a blade kerf of just .080” (2mm).

Packaged together, the HM130MAX 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.
