Australian owned Lucas Mill paved its way to become a successful sawmills manufacturer with machines sold in more than 100 countries in the world.
From a small farm shed in North East Victoria, the Lucas family established Lucas Mill Pty Ltd in March 1994. At the commencement of operations the goal was simple – to earn a sufficient income to sustain the Lucas families.
With limited expectations, it came as a welcome surprise that orders for more than 50 machines were placed in the first month of manufacturing.
Today over 17,000 machines have been sold into more than 100 different countries around the world. What a magnificent achievement for manufacturing in rural Australia!
The Lucas Portable Sawmill has become an increasingly well recognised piece of machinery amongst the farming and timber communities of Australia. The portable Lucas Mill can be transported to almost any location and set up to select harvest timber with minimal impact to the surrounding environment.
Whether your project is cutting timber for private fencing, building or furniture making; or if you are a sub-contractor, there is no doubt that there is a strong demand for a quality Australian made product such as the Lucas Mill.
Lucas Mill attends between 40 – 50 field days and shows across Australia each year where they provide live demonstrations of their portable mills.
Five different circular swing-blade machines are in production, ranging from a 6-inch model up to a 10-inch model. Options are available for each model including slabbing, planning, sanding and weatherboard attachments.
