Mill lumber with your chainsaw! Granberg Alaskan Sawmills have been making lumber for over 50 years, and their proven design has been used in nearly every country around the world. This highly portable milling system is designed to go anywhere you can get a chainsaw, whether it be your back yard, or the back forty. This unit easily clamps onto your chainsaw with a bar wrench (included), so you can go from standard cutting to milling in minutes. This mill makes slabs up to 12" thick and up to 20" wide.

The updated MK-IV Alaskan mills now come with new CNC-machined billet end brackets! These new end brackets are more accurate, easier to adjust, create less vibration than the old die cast version, and are virtually unbreakable.

As with all of our chainsaw mills, you can cut any length log or cant. Instructions included. We recommend a set of slabbing brackets to aid in making the first cut on a log. Match the mill to the biggest log you'll be cutting. Small logs are more difficult to mill with the larger mills. Mill is adjustable to narrower cuts.
MK-IV Mill with 24" rails maximum cut: 20"
Minimum bar requirement to achieve maximum cut: 24"

A Few Words About Chainsaw Milling... Making lumber with a chainsaw can be a very inexpensive and rewarding way to mill boards from logs. However, there are a few things you should know before diving into chainsaw milling.

  • Milling lumber requires a large horsepower chainsaw. We recommend chainsaws with at least 3.8 cubic inches (60 cc) of displacement for the smaller mills that run bars up to 20". For larger mills, go for the biggest saw you can get. Saws with 5.0 cubic inches (80 cc) are a minimum, and when making cuts over 36" you'll need the largest saws made. Milling lumber is extremely taxing on chainsaws. Keep the gas mixed properly and the air filters clean.
  • Use a ripping chain when milling. Standard saw chain is designed to cut across the grain, not with it. Ripping chains are designed for milling, and they leave a smooth, consistent finish.
  • Take your time. Chainsaw milling can be a slow process, but the rewards are great. Make sure logs are clean of rocks and dirt and look for nails or fencing. They will ruin a chain quickly. Always wear proper safety gear and use log handling tools to move heavy cants.
Optional: Slabbing Brackets
