What?! Use a pickup for hauling???? Blasphemy.
Lol. Most of you would never guess I used that 45 for Home Depot runs regularly. Sand, dirt, plywood, insulation, straw, pretty much everything but gravel. Heh, but I can't see a 6' bed with 10' hanging out beyond it. I might could wrangle that onto the M101, but that would be ugly too. If that weighs 1000 pounds, I would be pushing the weight and definitely the tongue. M101's don't like neutral/negative tongue weight.

Nice little cedar you have there. I sawed about a semi load a couple of years ago and sold almost all of it. Do you need the long length ? If not, your yield would be much better in shorter lengths because yield is determined by the smallest end. I usually cut cedar 8-10' because of the heavy taper.

You can easily side load logs even with a come-along using this method. We've loaded hardwood logs up to 36" using this method (too heavy for the skid loader).

Most guys think it is fun to go see their logs opened up like a book. This is my mill (sorry it is in Indiana) as I open up a surprisingly nice and clear honey locust. The kind of tree with long thorns that puncture tires.


What I don't custom saw or keep for my woodworking business gets hauled to the pallet mill nearby.


. . . and then it gets stacked like this to air dry.


I like to show off my wood. Wait, that didn't come out right.

Nice wood. Maybe I need to be calling you for cedar instead of the local guys.
Honestly, I do need one long piece for the main beam, but that is economical enough to buy and use this to mill some substantial columns. The price for the column was much higher than the beam anyway. For example, 10x10 columns around 12' long were something like $500 ea, but a 6x10x16' beam was only $200.
Now I don't have a log 24' long, but I could put the columns on stone pedastals and maybe knock that down to 8' and that log would sure be easier to handle that way. Hmmm.

haha That is only a mere sampling of inventory . . . this forum doesn't have a woodworker's thread to my knowledge for pics of finished projects . . . but some of the other forums do.

Can't say that pics on forums or Facebook have ever earned me any profitable business though.

More than anything, these pics just show hauling, sawing and proper stacking of wood.

You can use my trailer if you are on the sout side. I would find a mill to cut and store it, then when dried you can pick up the pieces a use them.

woodsman:

Is that an LT40?

Do you have auto set features on it, or do you make each cut manually? How consistent has it been for you?

I'm in Indianapolis for the next two weeks for training, and I'm trying to find time to sneak away to visit the Wood Mizer shop just to get a good feel for their mills.

A mill is on my short list of "things I need to buy if I find them cheap enough"

That is a 28hp gas LT40HD. It does not have the auto set. I looked closely at that and couldn't justify it for what little cutting I do. I also looked closely at the Baker and Cooks sawmills (their biggest diesel models) and then came back to Wood Mizer since they are built eight miles from my house. Not sure how long I will keep it as I realize now my time is better spent building finished goods than in producing lumber.
