The Journey of Excellence

Our story of success began in March 2022, when we sold a 2017 LT70 Super Hydraulic Wood-Mizer Band Mill, a model renowned for its superior capabilities and cutting-edge technology. This premium sawmill, sold through our IronRing auction, fetched an astounding $120,000 - a clear indicator of the high demand and the exceptional value attached to Wood-Mizer sawmills.

Fast forward to June 2023, and the trend continued with the sale of a 2019 Wood-Mizer LT70 Super Hydraulic Wide Throat Portable Band Mill. This auction, held in Heaters, WV, concluded at a remarkable $142,500, significantly benefiting the seller and providing the buyer with an immediate solution to expand their production capabilities. This machine holds the record of the all-time highest selling Wood-Mizer (of this model) at public auction.

In July 2023, our Lake Erie Auction became the stage for another remarkable sale, showcasing the unwavering demand for quality sawmilling equipment. A brand-new LT70 Super Hydraulic, Wide Throat, Band Mill, renowned for its superior design and unmatched efficiency, was sold for an impressive $110,000. This event not only highlighted the continuous preference for Wood-Mizer's excellence but also reinforced Bright Star Auctions' reputation as a premier destination for securing top-tier portable sawmills.

And that’s just the highlights! Bright Star Auctions has sold many more (275 according to our website) Wood-Mizer sawmills at public auction for great prices for our sellers! The LT70 model seems to be the most popular, followed closely by the LT40.
