This was a great first sawmill. It allowed me to learn and be productive at a great price point. It was extremely durable. As a beginner, I put it through the ringer and it handled it like a champ. Great product!
I m extremely happy with my HM130Max. This is my second Woodland Mills sawmill and it was amazing as well. The added cutting width and log capacity, along with the trailer, makes my business more marketable and flexible also making it more profitable! Looking forward to seeing what the guys come up with next. Great product! It’s very durable and well made. Can’t say enough great things about this sawmill.
Mine is still in crate waiting on spring. I have used my neighbor s WC 88 on a much smaller tractor than mine and it blew me away from the start. Easy to use and loads of capacity.
After purchasing my HM122 a few months back I’ve had it stored until I could get time to set it up. Also ordered track extensions. I poured my concrete pad 5’x20’. I began setting up the mill with the manual page by page. The packaging and manual were A+. After getting it set up I realized that the vertical holders wouldn’t drop low enough to allow saw clearance. I inserted 4x4s under the rails to give more room. The rails move out of position easily with the slightest bump from a log. Currently trying to figure out a way to secure the rails and 4x4s to the concrete pad to prevent having to relevel the track after every log. Also seen that the new version comes stock with leveling legs. That would have been nice also. The saw cuts great and very easy to use once set up. If I had it to do over I definitely would have opted for at least one size up as a lot of the pillars on my property are right against its limits.
After a lot of research, I decided to purchase the Woodland Mills WC68 chipper for my 29 Horsepower New Holland tractor, which delivers 25 horsepower to the PTO. I took delivery of my chipper in late December. As I opened the packaging, I noticed that there had been great care taken by the factory to package the unit to prevent damage during shipping. Assembly took about four hours and was fairly easy. The factory had already done most of the assembly. As I was assembling the unit, I noticed that the unit is very well built. The steel that is used is thick and the welds were complete and nicely done. The hydraulic components are front line components and, if needed, easily replaced by most hydraulic distributors. It is now early March and I have about 40 hours of use on the chipper. I have chipped pine and oak, up to the 6" maximum, and the unit has handled these trees and limbs without a problem. I have been able to chip manzanitta up to 5", any larger than that, the unit will not digest the limbs. The manznitta is very dense and hard. The feed wheel feature is a huge plus for this machine. We have cut down trees that are 20' - 25' tall, 4" - 5" in diameter, trimmed some of the lower limbs and fed them right into the chipper. The feed wheel assists in feeding the chipper very nicely. You will have to adjust the speed of the feed wheel from time to time, depending on what you are feeding into the chipper. I usually just leave it on a slower feed speed, in order not to jam the machine. The chipper blades are holding their edge, I have not had to reverse them yet. It is important to clean your chipper regularly. This also allows you to visually inspect all of the components too. The adjustable discharge spout has been a good feature. The chips are discharged into a trailer and the trailer is moved to where I want to spread them on the ground. The adjustable discharge spout allows for even filling of the trailer without having to do much moving of the chips in the trailer. The chipper has allowed me to clear a lot of area in a short amount of time. Much quicker that trying to cut and burn the trees and bushes that need to be removed. This was a large investment for me and I am very please with the choice that I made. This is a well designed and well built machine.
After a few adjustments and a new flow control valve chipper is great. Very good tech support.
The Woodland Mills HM 126 works very well once assembled. However assembly is a bear. Particularly trying to place the three door catches on the mill. The catches are located in very hard to reach places and the room for fingers, wrenches etc. is almost non-existent. Coupled with the tiny sizes of the nuts and screws putting the hatch fasteners on was a nightmare even with help. I've had the HM 126 since about Nov. 2019 and I like the way the mill cuts. However I am suddenly noticing that the clutch seems to be slipping. I can get about two feet into a log and the blade stops inexplicably. I stop pull back and start again and it does it again. I've since had a knee replacement and have not been able to work with the saw since January 23, 2020.
Haven't used it that much yet (tough to get logs out in winter south of Owen Sound).. Winter has been a good time for learning. I like how fine and accurate I can cut. The saw is well designed and the components fit together very nicely.
This is a fantastic piece of equipment. Easy to set up and operate. Chews through large and small material with ease. The hydraulic feed is a game changer.
Love the one pull start Koehler engine but learning about the importance of everything must be level and stay level over multiple logs for quality boards.
