Frontier or Legendary Norwood

Which Norwood Sawmill Is the RIGHT Mill For YOU?

This is the question we hear the most. And we understand! Sometimes you know absolutely which way you want to go with your investment in a portable sawmill.

But sometimes, you need to compare to determine exactly which kind of sawmill (Norwood or Frontier) will serve you in the best way possible.

Here’s a quick checklist that may help you decide:

A Frontier Sawmill Is For YOU If...

  • You’re shopping for the best price because you need to save money.
  • You’re planning to use your sawmill for personal projects.
  • You’re a beginner sawyer who appreciates a trusted company that has specialized in portable sawmilling for a quarter century and has a reputation for delivering innovation and reliability.
  • This is your first portable sawmill.
  • You’re looking for a basic mill that's easy to operate and you don't need many options or attachments.
  • You’re excited to start with rough-sawn projects like cabins, shelters, and sheds.
  • You value premium-quality work done here at home, but don’t feel you can justify the slight extra cost right now.
  • You’re independent, smart, and want the most mill for your dollar.

On the other hand...

An Original Norwood Is For YOU If...

  • You want the most value for your money, and recognize that extra versatility and productivity are key to good value.
  • You take pride in fine craftsmanship and appreciate precision tools and equipment.
  • You’re planning to use your sawmill as a business venture or want to leave your options open to earn money with your mill.
  • You’re an intermediate or experienced sawyer (or a novice sawyer now with higher sawmilling aspirations) who appreciates proven technology, patented innovations, and exceptional reliability.
  • This is your first, second or third … and final portable sawmill.
  • You need a sawmill that will grow with you as your sawmilling operation grows with many optional production-boosting attachments.
  • You’re excited to start with rough-sawn projects, but know that your woodworking and custom-milling options are endless when you own a premium portable sawmill.
  • Investing in premium-quality equipment built here at home is critically important to you.
  • You’re independent, smart, and want the most mill for your dollar.

Only you know which direction is best for your needs. No matter which way you go, you can be assured of Norwood’s quality and durability.
