That is a very good point concerning the computer/setworks Southside.  A call to Cooks with the sawmill Serial Number in hand would be appropriate.

Speaking of lifting capasity.  This is Chris aka @Meadows Miller with the first tree he cut in the USA.  We got 2 24' logs out of this tree that he cut off my place.  He cut these on the Cooks into 2 x 6 boards that were used for rafters on my cousins house that they bought and remodled.  Don't rember exactly how big the tree was, but you can see by comparing it to Chris's body it was a very nice pine.  If there were any limbs up to 48' they were very small.  Point being the Cooks did not have any trouble lifting them.  I have never had a log that the mill would not lift.  I have had to use my backhoe to get them to the mill as the tractor would not move them, but if you get them on the arms, they are going on the mill.  I drilled holes in the concrete and put dowels in them to keep the mill from moving when loading big stuff.  Banjo

Willie was a good guy.  He was the first forestry forum menber that I personaly talked to after I got started in this line of work.  He called me one sunday afternoon.  
 
When Chris  was here, my mom was having a bad spell and I didn't get to spend the quality time with him I would have liked.  He and I did drive down an visit with Willie one enening though.  

If Chris came back now, he would love this high speed internet I have now :laugh: :laugh:...think I had dial up back then.  Maybe he'll see this post and chime in.  :) :) :) :) :)    :D :D :D :D  .

Lynn, you are probably the only one still on here that knows why I did that.  Banjo

Congrats on the Mill purchase!

We obviously did not confuse you too much BUT you now have succumbed to the terminal addiction that ALL of us on this forum have.

SAWDUST.

It will ultimately be the demise of us all!

I want to be incinerated on a huge pile of cedar and pine flichs and slabs But that isnt legal I am told!  
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

Good going!  If a day of productive hard work is a good thing to you, I hope you have many many good days of milling!  I'm afraid that I enjoy the hard work but the beautiful product is worth it, most days.

Thanks!  I can't wait to make some saw dust. It will be a few weeks before I pick it up. My buddy has a few logs he wants to saw before letting it go. It has a Volkswagen deisel on it.

Last Friday, a couple of friends and I drove down to Cook's Saw Mfg. and checked out there operation and inspected an AC3662 along with a 14" edger. I was impressed with their equipment and plan on ordering a package deal in the next few days. I think you made the right choice.
