LT15START Portable Sawmill

Low cost, highly durable sawmill


The LT15START is a compact, economical sawmill engineered specifically for sawyers looking for an American-made sawmill that is low cost, highly durable, and saws accurately. The LT15START joins the popular LT15 sawmill series known throughout the world for its quality, versatility, and affordability.

The LT15START can saw logs up to 28” in diameter by 11’ long with a 26” width of cut, plenty of capacity for most logs encountered. Longer logs can be sawn with optional bed extensions which can extend the sawmill to any required cutting length in 6’ 8” increments. By adding one optional 6’ 8” bed extension, an optional trailer package can be installed to make the bandmill completely portable. The sawmill bed is made of a robust 2” x 6” box steel frame and features eight adjustable feet for simple rough leveling. Since this mill sits low to the ground, minimal lifting of logs is required.
