Fast product, accurate timber
The WPF was designed for fast production milling of high quality, extremely accurate timber. If you’ve got a pile of logs all ready to be milled up at one site, then this mill is ideal for you. It is much the same mill as our fully automated mill, the ASM, but the WPF is manual. It has has the capability to cut up to 8 cubic meters (3500bft) a day.*
If size matters this mill is for you!
With the WPF mill you can add extensions to any length without compromising accuracy or speed. In fact several of our millers have nearly doubled their production just by adding an extra set of tracks.Click here to see a 40′ log set up to be milled.
The WPF mill can easily Double Cut to get wide slabs without having to turn the head of the mill, as you do with some other brands of swingblade sawmills. Learn more about how Peterson mills Double Cut.
The most efficient manual sawmill
The WPF has a one-point lowering system,which means there is only one winch that raises and lowers the bed of the mill. An optional Electric Winch enables accurate vertical sizing with the push of a button.
Watch a video that shows how the electric winch works.
The WPF comes standard with a Lo/Lo track set-up but can be upgraded to Hi/Lo tracks which allow easy log loading and prevent sawdust build-up on the Lo track. With the Hi/Lo set-up logs can be moved into place either ramped over the low track or rolled under the high track.
