One tough little workhorse!

Now even weekend sawyers can have the same TimberKing quality and performance that sawmill pros have depended on since 1929. Our 1220 mill is compact and low priced – designed specifically for “weekend warriors” who demand high-quality lumber but don’t need high daily production.

You get the same Key Features we put on our industrial models — rugged 4-Post Cutting Head, massive welded steel cutting deck, huge power-to-blade ratio, and more — just scaled down and priced for the weekend sawyer.
Massive 4-Post Head Design! You get the same stable, flat-cutting system used on TimberKing’s larger, industrial-duty mills. No half-measures or cantilevers involved.

18HP (25HP Optional) V-Twin Electric-Start Engine has plenty of power for “muscle in reserve.”.

Hinged Blade Covers make blade changes fast and easy.

Optional Heavy-Duty Loading Ramps with spring-loaded stops. Ramps easily install on right or left side of the mill so logs can be loaded from either side.

Hair-Line Cut Depth Scale allows precision cutting to the 32nd of an inch!

5-Gallon Lubrication Reservoir keeps blade running smooth, keeps dust down.

8 Levelling Feet come standard with the TimberKing 1220.

Greaseable Guide Rollers

Remote Moveable Guide Roller


Massive Welded Steel Cutting Deck with Six Box Beam cross members for maximum strength. Solid construction allows easy addition of Transport Package.

Larger Cutting Throat handles logs up to 29” in diameter, up to 17’ 9" long! Bolt-on extensions allow you to saw logs of any length.

Double-Crank System! One crank controls height of the cutting head; second one moves the cutting head through the log. We use AIRCRAFT CABLE for the feed: it’s far better than ropes and “hand-push” systems on other mills.

EZ-Cam Log Clamps instanly lock biggest logs into place for rock-solid hold during cutting. Classic screw-type log clamp provides traditional clamping strength for smaller logs and cants.

Cadmium Plating System prevents bare-metal parts from rusting.

Blade Tension Indicator gives you maximum cutting efficiency and extended blade life.

Make the 1220 Your Best Choice in a Personal Mill
1 4-Post Head – The same rugged design that's at the heart of every TimberKing mill.
2 Welded, Box-Beam Cutting Deck – 2" x 6" box beam steel offers 200% of the wall support of single-wall cutting decks.
3 29" Cutting Throat – The 1220 features the widest cutting throat of any major manufacturer's personal mill. It will cut straight through the center of a 29" diameter log.
4 Integral Throttle/Clutch – When you throttle up motor, the blade engages automatically. This feature comes standard yet costs hundreds extra on other brands, if it's available at all!
5 Hinged Blade Covers – Blade changes are a snap with the 1220's convenient hinged covers.
6 The Human Touch – When you call TimberKing a human being answers and helps get you to the right place.  Our sales-people are on salary -- not commission -- which means they're not trying to make a "quick sale." They give you good honest information to help you find the right machine for your needs.
7 Cam-Lock Log Clamps – Ingenious cam system locks logs in place with the flip of a handle.
8 30-Day No-Questions-Asked Money-Back Guarantee – the industry's strongest Money-Back Guarantee.
9 2-Year Limited Mechanical Warranty – 2-Year Limited Mechanical Warranty – We're so confident in the rugged construction of the 1220 mill we back it with the longest mechanical warranty in the industry.
10 5-Year Limited Cutting Deck Warranty – Because the 1220's cutting deck is so rugged, we back it with the same warranty we put on our bigger mills. This cutting deck warranty is five times longer than any other personal mill warranty!
