That's going to fill a nice niche in the WM lineup- a wide slabber for guys that aren't ready for the 1000 beast!

54"!!  Now you have my attention since 95% of my work is live edge slabs.  Did it have any log turning mechanism or do I need a longer "magic blue stick".  Not sure you need all of the electronics and cost for live edge work.  As said by Bruno I would need to save my money for some extra log handling equipment.

In addition to the mill, better budget a Deere 544 wheel loader at $75 K to move the logs, and then another $20K for the forklift to move the slabs.  Don't forget the insurance deductible for the back surgery! :D :D :D

Yellowhammer you got it right.  Before long my sawmill will be cheapest piece of equipment I have to support my sawdust hobby/addiction/business.   I have also learned that most of saw milling is actually material handling of HEAVY stuff.  I have access to a lot of bigger wood that would be great for this type of mill but then have to add the other equipment too.  Next week I'm adding a small truck crane to my trailer to grab chunks and shorter logs to save my back.

It would be nice to cut that wide but handling and dealing with a buyer to move a slab that big wouldn't be fun.
The Lx 150 with the 35.5 cut width would be better suited for my opetation.

Thanks bruno,  hopefully they have a diesel option. I am still looking for a wide slabbing mill but would like a diesel if possible.

They looked a little on small side in the picture. Doesn't appear to be a whole lot of real estate above the band. Not an issue for me . I just need a decent slabbing machine and the price on that looks good.

I would think a used Lucas would do most peoples slabbing work for really large logs.  Smaller stuff on the bandmill.

There will still be plenty of work for lucas owners with these wide bandmills on the market.   Someone is going to have to flatten out all those wavy wide slabs!

Absolutely need a plan for handling the slabs coming off that - even just getting them free of the log, you are not going to just push 350 lbs of slab with a "heave ho"  I watched the new Baker slabber in Richmond this past spring - did fine sawing, but the poor guy who was running it had to then remove the slabs, he was no slouch, and you could tell it was all he could do.

Bruno what you need is a wireless remote control so you can run the mill from your tractor, also a setup (also wireless remote) to push the slab off the log on to a set of forks to transport the slab to the finished stack.

The only thing missing is a way to put stickers down, I guess you will have to train your dog to do that. ;D
