AMERICA’S FIRST & ONLY MID-SIZED MILL WITH KEY DIRECT-ACTION HYDRAULICS!

The TimberKing 1400 offers fully-portable convenience with key Direct-Action hydraulic features. It's the ONLY mill in its class to offer Direct Action Hydraulics for Hydraulic Blade Feed and Hydraulic Blade Up/Down. Compare to similarly-priced brands with hand-crank feed, hand-crank blade up/down you’ll see for yourself the TimberKing Value Advantage.


Not only do you take a big step up with these key hydraulics — the 1400’s features give you serious strength and stability that has made TimberKing the top choice of sawyers since 1929: 4-Post Cutting Head, Fully-Welded All-Steel Log Deck, Auto-Clutch, Automated Log Loading, Bi-Directional Chain Log Turner, Standard Transport Package, best warranty in the business, and much more.
 
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.

25HP Kohler Motor muscles through logs up to 34” in diameter and 20’ long.

Remote Electric Clutch for longer blade life.


Greaseable Guide rollers for longer blade life.

Transport Package comes standard, includes 3,000 lb capacity axle, highway tires, tongue, receiver and lights.

Hinged Blade Covers make blade changes fast and easy.

Cadmium Plating System prevents bare-metal parts from rusting.

TimberKing DirectLube System applies TimberKing lubricants in a thin film directly onto the blade. EXCLUSIVE gravity-feed system with no motors or small parts to fail.
Direct Action Hydraulic Command Post –  Hydraulic controls are direct-drive for smooth, variable control...eliminates jerky on/off found with electrical-control hydraulics.

Direct-Action Hydraulic Blade Feed & Blade Up/Down eliminate extra work of hand-crank systems.

Manual Log Loader  Easily
Load Logs with handy manual winch system.

Mechanical Log Stops raise and lower from back of mill, same design and rugged components as our larger 1600 mill.

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

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


1400 Q&A:

Q: What makes the 1400 my best choice in a Medium-Size mill?

A: The 1400 offers many more standard features than the others in its class, including standard transport package and 4-Post Head. The Value Advantage of the 1400 really comes down to one thing: DIRECT-ACTION HYDRAULICS. No other mill in this price range offers the hydraulic automation available on the 1400. Automatic blade feed and automatic blade up/down come standard. Compare to other brands where hand cranks power these operations. And standard auto log loading and manual Bi-Directional Chain Log Turner give the 1400 labor saving power that’s simply not available on other brands.

Q: Why does the 1400 have direct-action hydraulics ONLY on Blade Feed and Blade Up/Down?

A: Hydraulics save time and effort but cost money. This is the mill for serious do-it-yourselfers: larger capacities and more convenience than our smallest mill, without the higher prices of our fully-hydraulic, pro sawyer mills.

Q: How do I know if the 1400 is the right mill for me?

A: If you have big plans but a tight budget, the 1400 could be a good choice for you. Think about the logs you’ll cut: the 1400 handles logs up to 20’ long by 34” diameter. Think about volume: the 1400 turns out a much as 275board feet per hour. Think about ease-of-use: the 1400’s key hydraulics make cutting easy and fun. Finally, think about value. No other brand offers so many features and so much automation at anywhere near the 1400’s low price.

Q: Will the 1400 do what I need it to?

A: Here are some ways to make sure. Give us a call and we can tell you about the 1400 in detail. Then try it for yourself. Every TK mill comes with our exclusive 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. Try it for a full month in your woodlot. Not satisfied for any reason, back it comes!
