I have a Logmaster LM3 with a 30+ hp cat. Would you like me to measure my pulleys? It has a auto clutch on it, and I like it. Speed up engine and saw away.

On the engine is a single pulley that runs the hydraulic pump. After that is a 4 3/4" double v pulley on the centrifical clutch. It runs a single belt, 2 v.  37" to a 19" pulley on a 2" shaft. The band wheel on the 2" shaft is 30". So 37" between engine shaft and band shaft.

Tacks, 

I wont have a clutch system on the mill unless i opt for a clutch sys like whats on a car/tck or some kind of manual xmsn piece of equipment. 

Intially, i didnt have enough power with the 2 lawn/garden engines. Now i have to much power for regular style centrifugal clutches.

I have a 36" Turner sawmill that I purchased without the engine in 2011. I built a hydraulic drive for the saw with a 51 HP VW RABBIT diesel engine @ 2200 rpm. The engine can be 50 feet from the mill via 1" hydraulic hoses. All you hear at the mill is the saw..         15 gpm @ 1800rpm Vickers pressure compensated pump, 18 gpm hydraulic gear motor, 5 1/2" pulley driving a 15" pulley driving the 20" band wheel.      I have sawed about 24000 BF with no problems at all.   I haven't sawed for 5 years but just got it fired up again last week. Hope to saw some sticks to build a cabin with next summer.                        Also just bought a new Cooks Cat-Claw sharpener + dual tooth setter   I've sharpened 12 blades so far and they are sharpened better than any I have paid to have sharpened . I am very pleased with them. Still learning though.   Leon
