The Wood-Mizer WM1000 is designed to saw large logs including hardwood, softwood, and tropical species. Durable and easy to use, this mill features a saw head with a massive throat opening that moves along a twin-rail frame.
The WM1000 breaks down large logs with a capacity center cut of 67" and uses thin-kerf narrow band blades that measure 2" to 3" wide and provides more material recovery. The oversize blade wheels reduce stress on the blade and the long blade length gives longer cutting time between sharpenings. With the WM1000, logs can be sawed into half, quarters, or cut into manageable cants for resawing. The operator safely controls all cutting functions while standing on a platform that moves with the head and includes computerized setworks.
The WM1000 is ideal to:
Sawing large, high value slabs, burls and crotches
Breaking down large logs for further processing
Ride-along Operator StationStay close to the action comfortably and safely with the ride-along station.
Control Panel with SetworksThe standard setworks increases productivity and accurately positions the head for the next cut.
Blade Guide SystemThe use of double-carrying blocks reduces vibration and ensures proper support of the blade while cutting.
Blade TensionerThe hydraulic system ensures constant tension during the cutting process.
Blade LubricationThe two-sided blade lubrication system cleans and reduces noise during cutting.
Blade WheelsThe 42” steel wheels reduce blade stress and come standard with a lubrication system.
