LT15 Manual Sawmill
Overachiever in its Class
The LT15 is a compact, powerhouse sawmill for hobbyists, small businesses, and timber framers. Ready to take on any size project or lumber demand, the LT15 sawmill is an extremely popular bandmill known throughout the world for being easy to operate and producing high quality lumber.
Small and incredibly versatile, the LT15 sawmill can saw logs up to 28” in diameter by 17’ 8” long. Since this mill sits low to the ground, minimal lifting of logs is required. Additionally, longer logs can be sawn with the optional 6’ 8” bed extensions which can extend the sawmill bed to any required cutting length. Read More
Loaded and turned manually with a cant hook (sold separately), logs are secured onto the bed by six side supports and two fully adjustable log clamps that tightly clamp the log and allow for cuts within 1” of the bed. To prepare for cutting, head height is precisely positioned by a quick turn of the up/down dial and the blade is effortlessly engaged with a handle. Cutting is accomplished by steadily advancing the sawmill head along the length of the log by turning a low maintenance, hand-crank feed system which runs on a rope instead of a cable. A power feed is available as an optional upgrade. Once the cut is completed, the head is raised up and pulled back and lowered into position for the next cut.
A water tank feeds lubrication directly to the blade to improve cutting performance and keep the blade clean. The adjustable blade guide arm keeps the blade well supported while cutting various sized material. Blade tension is easily adjusted, and keeps the blade at the proper tension for cutting. Wood-Mizer’s wide range of sawmill blades can meet any cutting requirement and deliver maximum log yield and minimal waste of the valuable timber. Additionally, thin-kerf blades require less horsepower or energy consumption, so the smaller power plants emit fewer emissions and require less fuel while still providing sufficient power to cut all wood types.
The LT15 sawmill ships on a pallet, comes with a single Wood-Mizer bandsaw blade, and requires minimal assembly time so you can start sawing within a few hours of receiving your mill. Offering a 30-day money back guarantee and a 2-year sawmill warranty, the LT15 sawmill is also backed by the same legendary service, quality and safety features shared by the rest of the family of Wood-Mizer mills.
