Designed with the part-time miller in mind, the Junior Peterson (JP) is a smaller, more simplified version of Peterson’s production range of swing-blade mills. While the Junior Peterson may sound like a baby mill, its 13.5 hp Briggs & Stratton engine provides enough power to get through a full 6-inch cut. Like the company’s other models, the JP gives the ability to double cut with only a slight adjustment of the blade guard. This means that with the blade in the horizontal position, you can achieve a 12-inch cut giving you a maximum beam size of 12 by 4 inches. The track levellers can be adjusted according to location, enabling the operator to set the mill up on uneven terrain.
