Norwood LumberMate PRO HD36 sawmill
Huge Capacity Maximizes Your Output……The LumberPro’s appetite for massive logs up to 36” (90cm) in diameter combined with its best-in-class throat-opening of 28” (70cm) give you the power to mill virtually any hardwood or softwood tree into valuable lumber
Norwood has more portable sawmill patents than all the other sawmill companies around the globe put together – Proof-positive that Norwood is the global leader in sawmill innovation.
Norwood engineers loaded the LumberPro HD36 with their very latest groundbreaking advancements in sawmill technology. Here are just a few examples of the patented innovations built into the Pro making it the strongest, the most productive, the easiest-to-use sawmill … Period.
- Automatic locking sawhead
- Automatic on and off blade lube
- Laminated sawhead construction
- Quick-set log rests
- Automatic locking adjustable blade guide
- Dura-Guide™ ceramic guide
The LumberPro’s wide-track log deck built of twin double-plated commercial-grade-steel rails is stronger than the competition and 2X stiffer. Sure, there’s a whole lot of steel , but the real secret to making the LM Pro’s log deck stronger than the others is the way it’s formed – 400-ton press-formed strengthening debossments boost rigidity and strength. What’s more, the boxed front and rear end-frames are extra-rigid structures that provide added strength and torsional stability.
The LumberPro’s rigid 4-post carriage frame is fortified with structurally-engineered and reinforced 2” x 5” (5cm x 12.5cm) precision-extruded vertical guides, and heavy-gauge 2½” structural tubular-steel rear vertical mounts and front horizontal stabilizer bar. The LumberPro’s solid 4-post frame effortlessly manages higher load inputs to mill with accuracy and control.
Ultimate Versatility – Manual to Hydraulic
With unprecedented versatility, the LumberPro HD36 has a broader selection of optional attachments than any other sawmill on the market. Super-productive even in its stock manual configuration, you’re free to step up its output and performance even more with yield-boosting attachments. And you’re free to choose when, and how.
Start very affordably with standard stationary LumberPro HD36. Then, build up your Pro as your milling operation grows, adding hydraulic or manual log loaders, log turner, toe boards, power feed/power setworks, etc … Add them anytime – one-at-a-time or several at once.
Ultimately, your friends may find you have a fully-hydraulic commercial-grade LumberPro HD36 bandmill in your milling shed … next to your stacks of valuable lumber. Want to know more, click here

Choose how you take delivery of your mill
All Norwood mills come in a kit format and will require building up. This is a time consuming exercise and some level of mechanical experience will be advantageous. Also, certain tools will be necessary to complete the task.
If, however, you feel this is beyond your capability or you have better things to do with your time, then we can build the mill for you. This service will be charged according to the mill and accessories purchased.
Features of the Norwood LumberMate PRO HD36
1. Made in the U.S.A. and Canada
All parts in the Lumber Pro HD36 are quality-built in Canada and the U.S.A. by highly-trained, highly-skilled operators with cutting-edge fabrication and machining technologies. Norwood does not make anything in China, Taiwan or Poland, like some other companies.
2. Rigid 4-Post Carriage Frame
The sawhead has to be stable and strong to make straight cuts. The only way to make absolutely sure that it can do its job is to support it on both sides. The LumberPro’s 4-post carriage frame does just that.
Increase the LumberPro’s production, capacity, and efficiency by adding any of the optional manual or hydraulic commercial-capacity sawmill attachments at any time.
4. Industrial-Grade Dura-Guide© Ceramic Blade Guides
Full 3-sided blade support maximizes stability in the cut. More durable than bearings and rollers, they also run cooler and virtually silent, and are less affected by sawdust buildup and freezing. They eliminate blade deflection and down-pressure and extend blade life by 40%.
5. Single-Action 4-Function Operator’s Control
Activate the lever at the operator’s station and simultaneously throttle up the engine, turn on the blade lubrication system, disengage the blade-brake, and engage the clutch. Time-saving automated functions boost efficiency and your production.
6. Auto-Lock Sawhead
Patented Norwood sawhead friction winch makes raising and lowering the sawhead effortless. Auto-sawhead locking eliminates two operator functions for fast sawing cycles and greater output.
7. Patented Norwood Laminated Sawhead Technology
Extra-rigid laminated sawhead structure with twin-reinforcing beams provide maximum strength and torsional stability for superior accuracy
8. Integrated safety features
including full blade protection, safety-switch equipped guards and rapid blade-brake meet rigorous international safety standards.
9. Oversize Bandwheels
Custom industrial-size cast-iron, precision-machined and balanced. Measuring 20¼” x 7/8” (50cm x 2.2cm), the super-wide surface area delivers maximum blade support for truer cuts, minimizes cupping and extends blade life. Firm, smooth, long-life polyurethane bandwheel/blade interface belts reduce system resistance.
10. Worry-Free Cross-Bunks
Narrow cross-bunk design eliminates debris build-up. Standard stainless-steel caps protect your sawmill investment and prevent damaging staining of your valuable lumber.
11. Extreme-Duty Log Clamping System
Dual patented quick-locking log clamping systems lock fast, and hold firm even the knottiest logs. Fast, no-fuss functions minimize log-handling time and maximize production throughput. Designed for rapid-repositioning with available extra receivers for milling different log lengths.
12. Rugged Over-Centre Cam Dogs
Bite firm into both logs and cants.
13. Patented Norwood Quick-Lock Log Rests
Adjust vertically in ¾” increments and automatically lock in position. Log rest scale decals give quick visual reference of height to the blade. Top-mounted roller wheels help with log rolling. Or, activate the back-stops for small logs and cants. Lateral quick-adjust design to independently relocate the log rests well clear of the fixed blade guide for safe milling of irregular and knotty logs.
14. Laser-Straight Track
Laser-machined running surface and precision-CNC-machined upper carriage wheels deliver unparalleled milling accuracy. Carriage equipped with under-track wheels for additional stability and security.
15. 1½” Blade-Capable
The LM Pro is 1¼” and 1½” blade-capable.* It’s your choice.
