Your sawmill comes standard with a 2”, 9/8”, 1” & ¾” depth-of-cut scale with the kerf already calculated in. Optional metric scale sets are also available.

Patented infinitely-adjustable auto-locking sawhead (versus choice-choking, dimension-limiting pre-set cogged systems) - Gives you full depth-of-cut control while sparing you two time-consuming operations per cut.

Adjustable ergonomic tilt-height multi-function operator’s control simultaneously throttles the engine, engages the blade, and turns on the blade lube (on auto-lube equipped models).

Patented laminated sawhead with EZ blade tension system for fast, frustration-free blade changes and maximum torsional sawhead strength.

Rigid 4” sawdust exhaust port directs sawdust down towards the ground on the far side of the mill or use it to connect to a chip-extractor and exhaust the sawdust outside your sawing shed.

Twin vertical-adjust, 3-function log rests optimize clamping of your sawlogs, cants and boards, and solid-steel log dog.

  • Norwood backs up its equipment with a 30-day money-back guarantee and stands behind every Norwood band sawmill with a 2-year warranty

  • Yes, you can. All Norwood band blade sawmills have an available optional mobility system that will allow you to tow your sawmill from job to job through your woodlot right to your milling site

  • Many sawyers have their own tractors or loaders. If you do not have that kind of equipment, you can add one of the optional log loading systems available for Norwood sawmills. The LumberMan MN27 offers a manual log loading/rolling and ramp package.

  • When fully assembled, the LumberMan MN27 is 16' (4.8 m) long and 6'7" (2 m) wide. When setting up the mill ensure there is at least 15' (4.5 m) of firm, level ground around each side of the equipment.

  • The Norwood LumberMan MN27 is shipped in knock-down form on a pallet which helps to significantly reduce shipping costs and means they can get into even remote locations. This shipping method enhances your flexibility to order a customized sawmill that perfectly matches your milling requirements.

  • Assembly is simpler and faster than you might expect. The MN27 operator's manual includes comprehensive, step-by-step instructions, along with photos, illustrations, and exploded views to guide you through the process. Assembling your sawmill will also provide you with a deep understanding of its inner workings.
