The forecast is such that the roads may not be the best tomorrow.
Be careful and allow plenty of time.

That's a real nice mill.Tomorrow doesn't look like a good travel day,but you wouldn't be the first to bring home a Slushmizer.
You will not be disappointed with that mill.

Maybe hose it down with warm water containing Salt-Away, if the highway dept. has been enthusiastic about the roads.

Congratulations!  Hope the roads are not bad with precipitation or salt.

Make sure you lock the debarker and the head before traveling with it.

Made it. Had to wait until toady to pick it up. Tree was in the wires so we had to go 5 miles around the mountain on a steep Vermont dirt road.

Congrats on the mill! Hose it off, and get penetrating oil on any any bolts or anything you may ever need to adjust. I have a bed adjustment that is froze up from the previous owner getting the mill in salt.

Fluid Film is a good lube/rust prevention. At work we buy it in 5 gallon pails and spray the undercarriages of all the trucks and equipment each fall.

Took about a half hour and it was the first time I ever ran a Woodmizer. Not the same as a chainsaw mill!
