We have been in business for over sixty years and in that time we have introduced many innovative and useful tools to all the continents of the world (except maybe Antarctica).
Our saw mill attachments are our most popular products. They are easily portable and environmental impact is minimal. The ALASKAN MARK III chainsaw mill and the MINI-MILL II chainsaw mill portable chain attachments allow the user to efficiently saw trees on site and produce dimensional lumber suitable for building or woodworking projects.
The Granberg Chainsaw Mill G777 turns your chainsaw into your own portable sawmill. This is an ideal solution for turning logs into useable lumber for any of your home projects. Also known as an Alaskan sawmill, this is an excellent personal mill but don’t expect this Granberg model to be as productive as a standalone sawmill such as the Norwood LumberMate LM29. For small home projects the G777 is an excellent choice.
The Granberg Chainsaw Mill G777 requires a powerful gas chainsaw
Don’t expect to use this with an electric saw — neither corded orbattery-operated. You’ll need a powerful gas chainsaw to get the most out of this Granberg Chainsaw Mill. I recommend at least 60cc, but more power is better, as it will allow you to be far more productive and efficient.
Just to give you a frame of reference, the Norwood LumberMatethat I mentioned earlier has a 429cc engine. Obviously you don’t need anywhere near that amount of power but a sawmill does require a fair amount of energy to operate. Perhaps something equivalent to a Husqvarna 372 XP would be ideal.
Just remember, you can use a smaller chainsaw but the smaller the chainsaw the slower it will take to cut your lumber. It’s as simple as that.
This Granberg Chainsaw Mill is very compact, lightweight and easy to transport. It was designed to fit 20″ bars or smaller, and it will easily connect to the majority of chainsaw bars (under 20″) with no modifications. Be aware that some smaller bars could be too narrow to mount, but if your bar is at least 2.5″ wide then it will definitely fit.
Granberg recommends that you use a ripping chain with their Granberg Chainsaw Mill and I strongly suggest that you take their advice. A ripping chain will extend the life your chainsaw, cut faster, make cleaner cuts and leave you with much smoother surfaces — which means you’ll have less planing to do later. Ripping chains are essentially designed for milling purposes.
Another thing to keep in mind before using the Granberg Chainsaw Mill G777 is to make sure you have a sharp chain. Many less experienced chainsaw users underestimate the importance ofmaintaining a sharp chain. It’s essential for optimal efficiency and for safety reasons. A dull chain is more likely to get caught in the wood. If you’re mechanically inclined then you may want to sharpen the chain yourself or you can just pay a professional to do it for you.
You can also expand the usability of the Granberg Chainsaw Mill by purchasing the Granberg Slabbing brackets. These will make your life easier.
