If math is not a strength, there is an app that you might find helpful for calculating starting heights and other mill related things.

Saw Calc Pro (there is also a free version).  Both US and Metric measurements, figures starting heights, board footage, log volume.  Allows multiple kerfs, variable dog board heights, etc.  Distributed by MicaPeak Solutions
07 Timberking B-20, Custom-made log arch, 20' trailer w/ log loading arch, F350 SD flatbed dump.  Princeton piggy-back forklift.  Bobcat S250, Stihl 025C 16" and a Husqvarna 372XP 24/30" bars, Grizzly 20" planer, Nyle L200M DH kiln.
If you call and my wife says "He's sawin logs", I ain't snorin'.

Run the bandwheels off the 35, if everything goes really well maybe you can step right into an LT70 next time like Southside did. The 40 is a great machine, but the 35 and 70 are way better to change blades on. If you never had to experience wrestling a 1.5" blade on an LT40, that wouldn't be a bad thing😊
