Well the edger is more than halfway back here from Pennsylvania.  Dad sent a few pics and confirmed that it is a 24 hp yanmar diesel. Happy about that , I much prefer the yanmar to the kohler. I see a lot of yanmar diesels around the marina and I've never heard an owner say a bad thing about them. Here she is in stunning woodmizer orange.

Can't beat brand new orange paint when you're buy wood sawing equipment. She should serve you well for many years! I'm envious! ;D

Sam , I'm sure this is the edger we were supposed to get. I just think the sales people are getting their info on some of the equipment wrong.  Maybe a change in production and they weren't aware of it yet. They picked the machine up from Marty himself. They forgot the hitch for the truck and Marty let them borrow his. Said he seemed to be a really nice guy and both if them had nothing but good things to say about their experience there. My uncle said he was shipping Marty's hitch back to him tommorow. I'm gonna have to give him a call and remind him just in case.
Lawg dawg I'm sure this edger will last a long time and with the yanmar diesel it should be quite a few years before it needs a motor replacement. If you want to talk about envy, how about those barn pics you put up in the watcha sawing thread. I'd love something like that, first thing I thought was wow that's nice my township probably wouldn't even let me build something like that.

Any of you guys modify your woodmizer edgers for dust collection? I have a woodmaster 5 horse blower hooked up to my mill right now and would like to set it up for collection on the edger as well.

Years ago I had a blower/sucker/whatever hooked up to a box I built under the edger. It worked ....ok... but the time saved shoveling was offset by dealing with plug ups from short chunks of edgings getting jammed in the piping and the blower took a beating from knots and alla the short sticks that went thru. Perhaps you could build a "Grizzly"(simple device under edger with slots/boards that are at about a 45 degree angle. The sticks and chunks slide down the the 45 degree angle but the wind from the blower sucks the smaller sawdust..

Percy, thanks for the tips on the dust collection.  I'll try to rig something when I have time. 
Peter, thank you for the advice.  I did as you instructed and pulled a line through the machine from tip to tail.  Blades and rollers were straight and square but fence alignment was about 3/16 out of line. This explains why short boards like 8' and 9' would come out fairly straight while the longer boards were unacceptable.  I aligned the fence to the blades and ran a few long boards through and it is cutting much better so far.  I'll see how it does tommorow when we get back into production. Thank you for your advice, it is greatly appreciated.  Woodmizer trys to be helpful but I've learned right away if I have an issue to call people like you, Gary, Robert and Doug. Guys that run this equipment full time day in and day out to make a living. The knowledge you guys have from years of experience is mind boggling. Marty Parsons and his staff are very knowledgeable as well and have been great to work with. He called me Friday night after hours and had a couple suggestions as well. We are probably going to be buying an incline conveyor and transfer table through them and will definitely use them for all future woodmizer purchases.

A little update. I had questioned the capacity of this edger before purchasing and couldn't really get a definitive answer. I have ran a few hundred 2  3/8" thick flitches through this thing now with zero issues. I've even ran a handful of 2 1/2" thick through it. You have to give it a little shove to get it to start feeding but no issues.  I have ran walnut, hard maple, hickory, cherry and some oak at 2 3/8 thick. What amazes me is with the diesel on this machine it eats the 2 3/8 at the same speed it eats 4/4 and it doesn't bog the motor in the least. It's like the machine doesnt even know the wood is there.

I run an electric eg200 and can cut 2 1/4".  Just ordered the eg400 that should ship 10/11/18 which is supposed to cut 4 inches thick.
