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
