Looking for input on the Woodland mills sawmill, I know it’s not of the caliber of anything from Woodmizer, but that’s not in the budget yet. This seems more compact and relatively well made, even if it is manufactured in China. The two year warranty seems acceptable, the Kohler command engine I would prefer over a Chinese engine. This would be particularly helpful if someone knows where I can put my hands on one and check it out in person. Your thoughts are appreciated.

I’ve looked at the Hudson, Oscar and HFE models from that company and the small one seems priced good, the same as this one. But this one has more power and larger log capacity, all in a package about the same size. These two things are particularly attractive to me.

I was doing some research on this subject not long ago and I’d also love to hear from anyone who has any experience with the woodland sawmill. Looks like a great machine for the money.

Sure does look a lot like the one Harbor Freight sells.

I have studied the on that was available from harbor freight. There are similarities between the saw head and the lifting mechanism but the differences still seem substantial. I did talk to a couple of people in their Ontario office and they don’t participate in any demo days or have customers that will demo their mill for potential customers.

I Dont know a ton about these type mills, but their video seems to show off a machine doing everything I would ever need to do. I would be happy to be able to cut a nice wide slab of wood.
