HM130

After a lot of research I decided to purchase a Woodlander HM-130. I placed my order by phone with a very pleasant sales person on a Monday and picked up the crates at Woodland Mill's US distribution center in Buffalo, NY on Tuesday. Packaging was excellent and the mill and trailer assembly was pretty straight forward following the generally excellent assembly manuals. I found a couple of places where the manuals were lacking so I contacted Tech. Support and received excellent, timely service, both by phone and email. Also note: work in a clean area so you don't lose any of the fasteners because, in most cases, there are no extras. Assembly of the mill took around 8 hours and probably 12 hours for the trailer, working alone.. Since I had no means to lift the 700 lb mill onto the trailer I built a gantry crane and used a chain fall to lift it so I could back the trailer underneath. Problem solved. I have milled about 800 bf of walnut and ash since assembling the mill and am very impressed with how easy the mill is to use and the consistency and smoothness of the lumber I've made. I bought the log loading ramps and winch kit and highly recommend it if you don't have a tractor, etc. It makes getting logs onto the mill a simple, one man operation. I had some concern that the 14 hp Kohler engine would not be adequate for wide cuts. Happily, that has not proven to be true. I found no problems making nearly full 22" capacity cuts. And cutting 12" boards off a cant has been a breeze, repeatably taking only about 30 seconds on a 9' long walnut cant. So far I'm very happy with the quality of the Woodlander HM-130 I bought and the sales and tech. support during the purchase and assembly process. I expect it will give me many years of reliable service.

love the mill I was very impressed by the quality of materials, it cuts beatifully , through very dry red cedar and like butter through any thing green. i am very impressed with the prompt service you give, question one day and an answer the next, even before i purchased the mill i was very impressed with your very helpful attitude. one thing i would like to suggest is maybe put together an in depth DVD for assembly as i did find some of the instructions for the trailer package a little confusing, but a DVD showing step by step instructions from start to finish and how the mill and trailer should look once assembled would be FANTASTIC. i am so glad you offer such a great product at a very affordable price and I am so glad to support a Canadian company, I'm very happy to refer business your way thank you again

I really like my new HM130 sawmill so far, here are some points you might find helpful: Great experience researching, ordering, and delivery. Excellent website and customer service. Quite easy to assemble, great instruction/user manual included. I took the time to level my set up and the saw cuts straight and true. Excellent value for the money. I ran into only two issues in the assembly: There is a black metal cover that goes over the cable adjustment system behind the dashboard. It is inconvenient to remove this cover to adjust the level of the blade. To be fair, I have not had to make adjustments to the level of the blade after my initial set up (so far). Second issue was the positive battery cable to the engine. The pole is surrounded by several components and impossible to connect to without bending the copper battery cable end 90 degrees. Overall I think the saw is great and I’m happy to deal with the folks at Woodland Mills.

Livraison rapide, très bon service à la clientèle. Brena parle français ce qui est très aidant pour nous. Montage en une grosse journée si vous êtes un peu bricoleur. Bien lire les instructions pour les ajustements. Après quelques erreurs de débutants et une lame brisée nous avons maintenant pris notre air d'aller.... prévoir l'achat de lames supplémentaires. Pour la compréhension de l'échelle de coupe nous travaillons encore à tenter de la comprendre 🤔😜 ! Josée et Joël, Courcelles, Québec.

The HM130 works great! I’ve only had it for a couple months but it performs better than expected.

Great mill! It is the perfect addition to our farm! All our project lumber has come from the 130! Have had Red Pine, Basswood, Burr Oak, White Poplar and White Spruce on it. No issues other than operator error to report! If you are thinking of a mill you won’t beat it for the price!
