Wood-Mizer Introduces LX150 Twin Rail Portable Sawmill
By Chase Warner, Wood-Mizer
Wood-Mizer introduces the LX150 twin rail sawmill designed for hobbyists and professionals looking for a robust, portable sawmill with powered saw head controls and a large 914mm (36”) log capacity. As the second LX series sawmill offered by Wood-Mizer in North America, the LX150 joins Wood-Mizer’s world-leading range of portable sawmill equipment.
A key innovation of the Wood-Mizer LX sawmill series includes the rigid LX Frame sawhead tower that holds the control panel, engine, and the sawmill head. Designed to accommodate a larger width and depth of cut, the LX Frame travels on twin parallel hardened steel rails on the bed and allows the operator to have better visibility while sawing.
