    Really good deal! Very handy power/weight.

    my understanding from speaking with owners of Woodmizers is they have a lot of proprietary wear parts, Turners & Thomas mills, you can get replacement parts from your local NAPA

    Re: Chainsaws: What do You Have?

    only 2 pines got hit by the microburst, I should be able to salvage most of the wood, the breaks are right where I would have cut logs, so I don't think I lost much, the tops were lofted from the tree, and came to rest about 50 feet away, plenty of logs in the tops too. Gonna have to get out there with my saw and clean everything up, and get the bark off the logs before the pine bores find them, I used plenty of "ventilated" wood in my bard, I'd like to avoid that if possible

    Holy shit! Route 28 was shut down from North Barnstead Road to Prospect Mountain Road for two days because of a microburst. That was some crazy shit!

    Wow those start at $18,500. Up to 34” logs. And a 10’ pine log would weigh 1,400 to 2,000+ So even for pine you’d need something to move the logs with.

    Those HUD Son kits seem reasonable. One that will take a 29” diameter tree is $2,500 unassembled. That would handle 95% of the trees we have. Whole lot better payback.

    most of my trees are in the 28"-32" dbh range, with a couple around 36", and straight, I can easily cut some of em in to 24' logs and get 8- 6x12s 24ft long and a few 2x4s along the way. When I built my barn, the sawyer I got had a woodmizer, with only 1 extension, 20ft was he longest he could cut, I needed 64 20ft 2x10s for my rafters I had only 4 20ft logs in the pile, he made me 84, 20 extra,

    Re: Chainsaws: What do You Have?

    thinking with the few long I may need i'd pay someone to cut them up for me. vs having an overkill unit of a majority that i'd cut up

    the 1220 Big Capacity: handle logs up to 33” in diameter, up to 17’ 9″

    there is one for sale at around 6K lightly used.

    only 25% of my trees, I'm looking at compact excavators in the 8000 lb ± size range that I will get first, to prepare an area to place a sawmill

    at this point in my life, I am not looking for a payback monetarily, looking for a hobby in retirement, maybe make some bee woodenware, but mostly to build outbuildings/improvements

    Seen that yesterday. Not a Pro saw. but I'll eat my shorts if that guy doesn't have 20+ messages ahead of you. You'd have to offer him current housing market rates if you want the saw, by which I mean a price waay over his asking price if you want to be first in line to buy.

    Re: Chainsaws: What do You Have?

    ya, I need a new bar, threw a chain for no reason that I could see (meaning it wasn't loose), trying to decide if I want an 18", or 16", the 20" is really too much for the Husqvarna 455

    Re: Chainsaws: What do You Have?

    I'm gonna bag the sawmill idea, and just go with a Granberg chainsaw mill, mostly I just wanna make slabs for outdoor furniture anyway

    what saw ?

    Husqvarna 390xp 88cc
    Stihl MS661 90cc
    Husqvarna 395xp 94cc

    seem to be my choices, I'd be running a 36" bar with rip chain, (what it takes to make a 32" slab")
    I cut some of my blowdown into logs yesterday, rolled em out of my utv trail best I could by myself with a peavy ugh! got the 12'x28"dia out of the trail, the other log partially in the trail is 16'x30" dia. couldn't budge it by myself, but was able to widen the trail enuf to get around. still got even bigger log(s) standing, the microburst only snapped the crown off
