I noticed the saw was having a hard time pulling that turbo through the white oak I was sawing. The blade it came with was going through the log like butter until it dulled.
Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

I went and put another turbo on at Joes request and tensioned the crap out of it and I still got the same crappy cut. Those are going back in the morning to get swapped out with double hards at 4 degree. I ordered a box today and hope Joe will get some more to me before Friday or I am out of luck.

The blades will be there I'm sure.  I get next day deliveries usually.

I have a LT35 with the 25hp Kohler.  I've used 4 degree blades until this morning.  I ordered a box of 5 Turbo 7s and tried one for the first time this morning.  I will likely be switching to the T7s.  They cut all I put on the mill exceptionally well.  Faster cuts, smoother cuts and less sawdust on the boards.

If your 25 hp isn't pulling the Turbo 7s something else might be wrong.  Mine did fine.  

Some of the more experienced sawyers here will say, "I told you so."  And they did!

Joe had some thoughts that the teeth might not have been set or maybe some teeth got bent. I just know they don't work with my set up.

 

 In the photos you can see what the turbo is doing to a white oak log. Bottom pic is the comparison between the dull blade that came with the mill versus the turbo.

Sorry you've had that problem.  Every mill is a little different and blades do vary in their performance.

I hope the 4s work!
