Mind over matter, if you don't mind, it don't matter :D.  It might be just a tad slower but I do enjoy milling in the woods as opposed to working beside a pile in a pasture. I will admit we mainly use the csm for stuff that won't go on one of the other mills.

We've had a discussion sittin on the stump, how much hotter is that saw running?

DRP :)
Don, I don't know where to start trying to figure out how your mill works ???
Looks very impressive.

I didn't have a long enough plank so we leapfrogged that 24' walkboard and the supports around as we went down the log referencing off a string or chalkline. There's a short description when we were doing that, scroll down the thread here;

Rereading that it isn't real clear. I think I have more pics of the process if you need a better explanation of what we were doing there.

Ruh-roh, the clouds are moving backwards, catch y'all on the other side of this.

I'm just really glad i don't have to csm anymore.  It's one of the most brutal work you can do, tossing that 088 with the mill around in culverts and nasty steep places with 95 degrees and the burning hot saw adding more heat to the equation gets old quickly!! From 7 to 11 the saw drinks 10lt of fuel and after 11 you back hurts for the rest of the day and night! no thanks.
