Features | LX55 Portable Sawmill

Large, In-Class Cutting Capacity

The LX55 features a large in-class cutting capacity for sawing 26” diameter logs into 22” wide boards up to 12’ 5” in length. Optional 5’ bed extensions for sawing longer lengths are available with no practical limit. The rectangular throat design offers the same 22" width of cut capacity from the blade all the way up to the sawhead. With the ability to saw as precise as 1/16” with the thin-kerf sawmill blade, the log clamp and built in bed side support allow for final cuts within 1” of the sawmill bed so you get the most usable lumber out of every log.

Reliable Gas or Electric Power

Reliable power options are available including 9.5HP or 14HP gas engines for sawing outdoors and 7HP electric motor for sawing indoors in a garage or workshop.The powerful and dependable Kohler Command Pro gas engines feature Quad-Clean™ all-season four-stage cyclonic air filter for effective engine protection even in tough and dirty sawing conditions. In addition, performance-driven features include a forged-steel crankshaft, electronic ignition and cast-iron cylinder liner for professional grade power and performance. Plus, a large-capacity fuel tank means more time sawing and less time refueling. Each Kohler engine includes a 3-year commercial limited warranty.

Blade Engage and Lubrication

Engage the sawmill blade with one handle that engages the mechanical clutch and throttles the engine at the same time. Keep the blade cool and free of pitch, sap, and sawdust while sawing with the gravity-fed blade lubrication that applies directly to the blade.

Quick Sawhead Up/Down

Quickly and accurately move the sawhead up and down to prepare for sawing with the crank handle. Easily turn the handle clockwise or counterclockwise with 68 locking locations to adjust the blade depth for the next cut in 1/68” increments. A log scale is also included for sawing 8/4”, 6/4”, 5/4”, 4/4”, and 3/4” lumber.

Two Steel Adjustable Log Clamps

Constructed of solid tube steel, the quick-set log clamps tightly fasten logs for sawing and are adjustable up/down and in/out as material is cut. The log clamps use an acme thread screw for better durability, rust-resistant powder-coat paint, and a clamp point block for an extra grip on a round log or squared cant. Each log clamp is able to move between other cross sections and additional log clamps are available.

Two Steel Adjustable Side Supports

Two solid tube steel side supports are adjustable up/down to stabilize logs during sawing and turning logs. Each side support is mounted on the same steel bar as an adjustable log clamp and includes rust-resistant powder-coat paint for durability. An additional built-in bed side support on each cross section eliminates the need for adjustable side supports while sawing a squared cant and allows for final cuts within 1” of the bed.

Easy Blade Changes

Sawmill blades run on belted 16" diameter cast iron band wheels. Blade changes are easy with the one-piece sawhead cover that is secured by two outside fasteners and two inside clips. The space-saving cover opens above the sawmill and locks into place for convenience. To change a blade, simply release the blade tension, replace the blade, and tension the blade without having to remove any extra parts.
