So excited I can't even stand it!
« on: January 10, 2014, 08:16:26 PM »
I'm picking up my new Timberking 2200 on Monday.  8) 8) 8)  We're starting the long journey to KC early sunday morning.  My buddy that is taggin along with me, wants to get some of the famous Kansas City BBQ while we are out there.   Anyone have any suggestions of what place we should try.

If you have time Arthur Bryant's is a good one and Smoke House by the Independence
center is real good. I live in KC Mo so know lots of BBQ places, but Will can show you
a few places close to there place. Do you know what time you will be at Timberking?
I just might come over and meet you two.

It's NOT TOO LATE, INDIANAPOLIS!!! ORANGE, ORANGE ORANGE!!!!!  ;D

Just busting your chops. The TK is a mighty fine mill. One of my local competitors has one, a 1600 or maybe a 2000, not sure. I sure wish my WM had a chain turner...... :( If I turn a log a little too far I've got to turn it all the way around to get back to the face I want to cut.

Looks like you've got a pretty good operation going on over there, I'll need to come visit some time and talk shop.

Safe travels, and make sure you bring plenty of cash for the tolls!  :o

We love WM too.  The cut throat was the deciding factor, we do so much live edge slabbing it would of been silly to not go with the widest we could get in our price range.  You're welcome anytime, and hopefully someday we can work together on some big jobs!

JSwigga,

  Don't know much about KC BBQ, but I know a little bit about a TK 2200. Your sawing world is getting ready to change. Hope you have a right good pile of logs. Better get the talon edger while you are there, you're going to need it. They can remove axle and load it right on the mill bed for you. ;D

Yeah, big jobs would really rock! Right now, with the weather for the past few weeks any jobs would rock... Oh well, part of the business I guess. Here's to drier weather and warmer temps! SOON!!

I've been debating an edger for awhile. Might just look for a used one.
We have around 200 logs waiting to get milled so I can feed for while.

JSwigga,

When do you plan to be at TK?  Are they going to take you through the operation and maintenance orientation?  That should take a little bit of time.  I usually stand back, don't want to drool on that new paint.   ;D ;D

Don't know if they still do the manufacturing in the underground place or not. If they do, it's kind of neat to see.

I'm pretty sure it was limestone that was quarried out of there. I'm seriously claustrophobic, so I don't like going underground, but I think their facility is pretty neat. Congrats on the new mill. Don't forget to share some pics when you are up and running. 8)







BTW, Orange has a mill with a 34" throat. ;)

i have a few problems with the wide head lt 70.  First of all its 10 plus thousand more than the TK.  They didn't beef up the log deck at all for handling bigger logs, and it's much lighter than the TK. Everyone once and while we would roll a big log onto a lt 40 and the head would really get shook.  I know over time that isn't going to be good for an extended cantilever.  Plus the trailer only has single axle, 4 feet shorter and i'm not sure if it has breaks or not.  I think they will redesign the wide head trailer in the near future.

JSwigga,

When do you plan to be at TK?  Are they going to take you through the operation and maintenance orientation?  That should take a little bit of time.  I usually stand back, don't want to drool on that new paint.   ;D ;D

They have an orientation and training session for all new mill buyers.  We'll be there around 9 am on monday.

I respect your decision to go with a TK, but I doubt they are going to redesign the 70. It will take anything you can throw at it. Just because someone makes a mill with more steel, doesn't mean they have used that steel wisely. The single axle is sufficient, and has brakes. There is a bit of "backlash" in the WM heads. They wobble, it's not a problem.  :)


ETA: I'm not trying to get you to change your mind about the TK, I'm just trying to dispel any myths about the WM. A lot of people, almost all of them who have never owned a WM, have something to say about the cantileaver head. It's just not an issue.
