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

Is anyone hesitant to buy a brand new/unproven model?

By the time it hits the market, Woodmizer has it pretty much figured out. I have the first diesel powered LX450 they built. I had a couple minor issues, but they were quickly resolved by the factory at no cost. I'm tickled pink with the performance so far.

I heard the 450s had a lot of issues which is why I'm hesitant to jump right into the 250...but if WM fixes/resolves any issues that come up with new models then I guess it's not that big a deal. My other concern is that within a year or two they will add more options (hydraulic) and then I'll be stuck wishing I had waited a bit. I appreciate the response for sure, still have some time before I make my decision.

The fact that the blade guide only closes to a min of 38" concerns me a bit as far as cutting smaller material...this would be my only mill and I do still have to cut a little bit of small material (dimensional lumber, mantles) from time to time. Any input on making small, narrow cuts with a 38" opening between guides?

I do this often. If the blade is tensioned properly and sharp it makes no difference.

That's pretty much what I was thinking and hoping especially knowing that the 60" WM1000 doesn't even have blade guides. Thank you for the reply, much appreciated

My mistake, I was told it doesn't. Also mistaken about the cut width, 67" apparently

Do you guys have any idea why WM isn't offering log turning option on the LX150 & LX250?
The LX150 checks all the boxes for me that the LT15 Wide doesn't but with no tuner it keeps me looking towards the LT40 Wide.
