Chain Saws for Sawmills and Milling Lumber

This site contains information on Chain Saw milling with detailed specifications and advice about sawchains, sawbars and how to increase your milling speed and efficiency.

No matter what sawmill, chainsaw, saw bar, or chainsaw chain you are using, it is imperative that the saw cuts straight and accurately.

Unless you are a professional you can easily get confused trying to understand the different styles of chainsaw chain available out there. Read through our Sawchains page to get a better understanding of sawchain, which will help you in deciding what sawchain you want to use in milling lumber.

Hundreds of people worldwide over the years have asked which is the best chain saw. I have used both Stihl and Husqvarna in a professional capacity and now my personal preference is Husqvarna Chain Saws. Click here to find out why.
