Wood-Mizer introduces the LX250 wide slab sawmill designed for sawyers and woodworkers that need to saw massive slabs and boards up to 54.5 inches wide. Joining Wood-Mizer’s world-leading range of portable sawmills, the LX250 is the second largest capacity sawmill offered by the company, with the popular WM1000 sawmill capable of sawing 67 inch diameter logs.

Built in the U.S., the LX250 is a robust sawmill with powered saw head controls for ease of operation, adjustable presets for quick and accurate blade height control, and a massive 54.5 inch width of cut, ideal for sawing wide, live edge slabs.

A key innovation of the Wood-Mizer LX sawmill series includes the rigid LX Frame sawhead tower that holds the control panel, engine, and the sawmill head. Designed to accommodate a larger width and depth of cut, the LX Frame travels on twin parallel hardened steel rails on the bed and allows the operator to have better visibility while sawing.
