Large In-Class Cutting Capacity

The LT15START features a large in-class cutting capacity for sawing 28” diameter logs into 26” wide boards up to 11’ in length. Optional 6’ 8" bed extensions for sawing longer lengths are available with no practical limit. With the ability to saw as precise as 1/16” with the thin-kerf sawmill blade, the log clamp and built in bed side support allow for final cuts within 1” of the sawmill bed so you get the most usable lumber out of every log.

Reliable Kohler Power

The powerful and dependable Kohler Command Pro 14HP gas engine features Quad-Clean™ all-season four-stage cyclonic air filter for effective engine protection even in tough and dirty sawing conditions. In addition, performance-driven features include a forged-steel crankshaft, electronic ignition and cast-iron cylinder liner for professional grade power and performance. Plus, a large-capacity fuel tank means more time sawing and less time refueling. Each Kohler engine includes a 3-year commercial limited warranty.

Adjustable Blade Guide Arm and Blade Engage

Reduce blade travel and support the blade when sawing narrow and wide material with the adjustable blade guide arm. Engage the sawmill blade with one handle that engages the mechanical clutch. Keep the blade cool and free of pitch, sap, and sawdust while sawing with the gravity-fed blade lubrication that applies directly to the blade.

LT15START Portable Sawmill (12)

Quick Sawhead Up/Down

Quickly and accurately move the sawhead up and down to prepare for sawing with the crank handle. Easily turn the handle clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the blade depth 1” for each full rotation or 1/16” for each notch to prepare for the next cut. A log scale is also included for sawing 8/4”, 6/4”, 5/4”, 4/4”, and 3/4” lumber.

LT15START Portable Sawmill (13)

Quick-Set Log Clamp

Constructed of solid tube steel, the quick-set log clamp tightly fastens logs for sawing and is adjustable up/down and in/out as material is cut. The log clamp uses an acme thread screw for better durability, rust-resistant powder-coat paint, and a clamp point block for an extra grip on a round log or squared cant. Each log clamp is able to move between other cross sections and additional log clamps are available.

LT15START Portable Sawmill (14)

Four Steel Adjustable Side Supports

Four durable steel side supports are adjustable up/down to stabilize logs during loading, sawing, and turning logs. Each side support is mounted on the bed and includes rust-resistant powder-coat paint for durability. An additional built-in bed side support on each cross section eliminates the need for adjustable side supports while sawing a squared cant and allows for final cuts within 1” of the bed.

LT15START Portable Sawmill (15)

Adjustable Bed Leveling Feet

Eight adjustable bed leveling feet are included with every LT15START sawmill for simple leveling of the bed. Additional LT15 bed extensions also include adjustable feet to help keep your sawmill bed level at any sawing length.
