Probably cost on the turner. I will probably buy another Lucas dedicated slabber.

I would like to try a Lucas 
Or see one run in person
I like the slabber and circle saw
In the rough i like the look of circle saw wood.

We had the 76 inch Lucas dedicated slabber and loved it.I sold both of my mills last fall and bought an Lt 15 wide just to keep going.Some of the logs coming in are just too big for the WM so it looks like I will buy another Lucas.

TPT,

Can you describe your experience with the Lucas Slabber?  Was it set up under cover or out in the open and what type (if any) foundation?  26K for LX250 is a bit much for me!  Thanks

The new slabber is 11 bucks and we paid 16 for the first one because of the exchange rate at the time. Experience wise we wore out 3 bars and one engine cutting countless HUGE logs.No foundation because sometimes we needed to put it on scaffolding to reach the top of logs over 6 feet in diameter. An excellent mill all around and a super bang for the buck. You can also flatten slabs and do biased cuts for MONSTER cookies. You must pay attention to sharpening your chain properly for the type wood being cut . I regret selling mine.....Rob

The LX 250 would be very handy in my area, most over sized timber is left to rot in the forest or firewood. I could easily use it to break down big oak logs for quarter sawing, would be much faster than using my chainsaw,
