The Hud-Son Slabber was designed with you in mind. This is a more economical model that is still able to cut large 52”  diameter logs and create 48” countertops, tabletops, bar tops, mantels and more. Powered by a powerful 23HP Briggs and Stratton Vanguard V-twin engine, manual lift for precise measurements, and an affordable 1 ¼ thin kerf blade. The Slabber is built with 19” band wheels, which still allows an 11” maximum thickness cut, while achieving a lower profile sawmill that is easy to operate and maintain.

Okay that was a second log on Mill and now off the mill. I ran out of daylight though so I had to kinda patch this one together for you guys. It’s the next morning, I woke up early this morning and I started getting the boards the ends cut off so they were nice and square and also to rip them I have to cut them because they’re so wide down to 11inches and a quarter for our boards were to be putting on the building and then I’ll actually have some leftover and we’ll be able to use for another project so that was really cool. Really enjoying the mill so far is a great asset to have on the homestead so let me get these board ripped real quick and then we’ll be ready to apply the first set of boards onto the building.

That’s a couple good days on the dogger there. Getting it done.  It is looking really good.  Yeah is pretty exciting to actually Mill our own lumber here. We knew that it was coming and now that it’s here and we’re actually doing it. Its actually a pretty cool experience. You know and when they say, and kids ask, where do eggs come from? The grocery store!. The come from a chicken.  But it’s kind of like when I saw the mill you didn’t know and I didn’t really put it together. Until I saw him cutting them and then I’m looking at them and his cutting them into actual boards. So its like one of things and people ask where did you get board from and you say, you get it from the lumber store, or from like the big box stores or something. And its crazy to know and look and see that we’re milling our own Boards. Get it from the tree. Yeah its crazy and when you kinda put that analogy together its really cool. So its a big step for us on the project guys we actually got some boards hung up. Stay tuned!


Oscar 2

“We purchased an Oscar II Sawmill from one of your dealers back in 2000 and we literally worked the snot out of it. Our home is 5500 sq ft and every element was cut from Oscar Hud-son sawmill lumber.

The frame (except wall studs), flooring, sub floors, trusses, rafters, clap board siding (made on a jig) – hundreds of thousands of feet of 1x6s, 2x8s, columns and trim, every interior door – all hand made from hickory, cherry, walnut, and red wood.

All told, we literally saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in construction costs with the help of your equipment. I can say with confidence that the combined total cost of every building we built over 20 years did not exceed $100,000 in total cost to finish. Tremendous value!

Then tragedy struck. We awoke to a fire that totally destroyed our sawmill operation. The barn lost was 2 story with 16 years worth of excess lumber stored in the loft for future projects, poles and beams, salvaged barn lumber, siding, plus a huge pile of exotics in slab form all picked up to dry and cure.

I still have many more projects to build into my retirement years.”

And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for man glitter hahaha I’m just as excited as everybody else

Long Time coming waiting on the weather but honestly waiting on my nerve I’m actually a little bit nervous about firing up the sawmill this is the first time I’ve ever operated The sawmill first time I’ve ever cut my own lumber.  If you guys have been around our channel for a while my wife and I we live in the log cabin that you seen the video that we built that ourselves but I actually harvested the wood and had it sent to a sawmill for them to Mill it up for me this is the first time that we’ve actually harvested logs and we’re bringing him here to our own sawmill so as far as living off-grid or living on our homestead the main goal for us is to be as sustainable and self-sufficient as we can and making our own lumber and other items that we can actually barter or sell or trade for is a big waves in homestead


So whats this here is a warrior sawmill by Hudson it’s a really nice campaign that they came up with this sawmill right here as you can see is kind of decorated in some military garb because every sale of this saw will actually donate a portion of the sales to our veterans okay so that’s some good solid stuff right there


I’m going to do a few things here make sure the batteries are all this is all hooked up I’m going to go over my nuts and bolts off camera so you guys aren’t bored Then we’re going to start it up and we’re going to start making our boards


stay tuned as we’re going to learn how to use this saw and we’re going to Mill up all the outside lumber for the building that we put up last summer of the learning center where the solar power is so stay tuned for that you’re going to see how all this lumber comes right out of these logs and goes right on that building.

Daniel J. Hudon



Who we are
Formal forestry has been practiced since the 7th century. When people now in the area that we call Germany we faced with the ever increasing shortage of wood.

Forestry has changed dramatically over the years. Eventually becoming a rather micronized business. Carried out by specialized enterprises using highly specialized forestry equipment and machines.

Dan Hudon JR, well the forestry business has changed quite a bit over the course of history. They’ve gone from axes to chainsaw to modern machines that does all the logging that a person needs to do.

In 1946, Oscar Hudon, began logging and farming in Crowne Point, New York by Lake Champelin with his son’s Daniel, Omer, Paul, and Maurice. The Hudon’s quickly earned respect within their community and earned respect within their community and earned a reputation for quality and hard work.

Dan Hudon SR, founder of Hud-Son Forest EQUIPMENT we purchased the farm in Crowne Point, New York. We bought it principally for a place to live and the wood that was on the farm which was our primary income. We gardened, had farm animals but the pulp wood was the main source of our income. We peeled as much wood as possible and while peeling season was on after that we would skid the wood out with horses. Sawed it up to length and delivered it to the mill.

Hud-Son started out selling chainsaws and logging tools. In the 109-‘s started selling portable sawmills. We brought a place here in Barneveld where we mostly sold chainsaws but always pertaining to wood more than anything else. We sold many, many chainsaws. We also got introduced into band mills by Warren Ross in New Hampshire. After selling a number of them we kind of parted company and I tried to get my son into selling sawmills. Him and my daughter in law multiplied the company many times over beyond my wildest dreams(snickering).

Since it’s inception all 3 generations of Hudon’s have been involved in forestry practices.

It started back in Crowne Point, New York, up in the Adirondacks when my grandfather started logging up there. My dad worked for my grandfather and he moved into the Racquet Lake area in the Adirondacks and did more logging. Our company kept growing and growing. Now we are here in Barneveld, NY, with a full blown company that sells worldwide.

Hud-Son sold many sawmills over the years which brought them to an understanding the needs to turning trees to lumber at an affordable price. Thru years of development, testing, and hands on knowledge of the industry.

Hud-Son developed their own line of sawmills. Shaping their product line and maintaining their reputation for valve and excellence in the industry.

Hud-Son Forest Equipment started off by selling circle sawmills back in the 1960’s and in the 70’s my dad started selling portable sawmills. Our company saw a huge need for homeowner sawmills and hobbyist sawmills so we developed our own sawmill line. We’ve gone worldwide with that line of products. All across the United States, Canada, and the world.

Why Hud-Son sawmills is different is the fact that we looked at the homeowner and the hobbyist, farmer, landscaper, we tried to develop a sawmill to meet their needs at a low cost, producing quality lumber. We’ve continued to do that throughout the years.

Today Hud-Son Forest Equipment has turned into a worldwide manufacturer and distributor for a myriad of applications. From forest, to lumber, firewood, wood art, and more.

We work with a wide variety of companies in fact even some individuals. We have found that individuals work really well on a local basis. Companies like your tractor companies, equipment companies, landscaping, co-ops, they all do well moving our products.

Hud-Son has and continues to look towards the future of providing quality built affordable forest equipment who prefers to do the job themselves.

What Hud-Son Forest Equipment has done with their mills is we’ve looked to bring a good, quality mill to a customer he can easily get parts for at most hardware parts providers. We didn’t over develop our sawmills so you can’t get parts for the machine. With the simplicity of being able to have a nice sawmill, at a low cost to cut their lumber in their yard.

Hud-Son offers consumers a fair price, quality piece of equipment that is simple to use, affordable, and produced in a family orientated company with employees who care.

Our developers have made our equipment easy to use looking at our equipment easy to use looking at our equipment being a one man operations. From start to finish him. Him being on his own and we’ve developed all the equipment easily put together and assembled together by one person. It makes a nice, easy piece of equipment.

The family aspect of the company is important to use. We feel that all the employees who work here operate as a family. We are a close knit community, working in a small community, and we all work together like a family. We are proud of our employees and the people that we work with. We’re going on our 4th generation of our family working the business.

Our sawmills and wood processing equipment is designed for people in all types of livhoods. We feel and personally believe we are those type of people in every catagory.

Using our sawmills to build a shed even a home.
