Woodmiser Lt15 vs Norwood Hd36

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at buying a low end sawmill. I've narrowed it down to a Norwood hd36 and the woodmiser lt15. I'm looking for views and opinions on both please. I like nor woods as you can add multiple pieces and upgrade as funds allow and the increased capacity. The woodmiser I like the setworks box and the auto up and down plus the great brand name and build quality. Bothe would be the petrol versions.


Any views welcomed.

I would go for the Norwood.


Easily expandable, uses many standard parts, ie bearings etc, and the headworks have two supports.


The Woodmizer is fine but will need more adjustments as the bed wears, and uses parts unique to them, no buying standard parts off the shelf. I personally don't like the cantilevered head - it shakes around just moving along the bed without even cutting anything.


I have an older Norwood and love it. I don't know where you are located but you would be welcome to have a look at mine. Located in Sevenoaks, Kent.


Whatever one you do go for, buy the biggest power option, you won't regret the extra expense.


Just my opinion!
