Sawmill Models. View an up to date list of our current Sawmill Models. Twin Saw and our newest innovations in Swing Blade technology. And here is another swing blade mill I recorded a few months ago:. With a band saw you have to cut slabs and then turn them on end to make the opposing cut. Swing blade woes? Not enough logs, not enough time to saw. I’ve got 50 some hours on my Lucas 618 cutting everything from power poles to ponderosa pine, Doug fir, western larch, poplar, to northern red oak and white birch.
The SwingBlade is an international knife combining the design efforts of Outdoor Edge president David Bloch, EKA Knives of Sweden (founded in 1882) and professional Swedish hunter Thomas Ekberg. Peterson are the original designer of the world’s first commercial ‘swing-blade’ portable sawmill. While other variations come and go, Peterson continue to be leaders in innovation and design.
