Congratulations!

Try to get there as early as possible.  Pretty good jaunt from Waco to Nacogdoches.

You getting the 51hp Cat?

They were building an LM4 when I was up there last.  Good looking rig.

Yessir.  That ought to be pretty close.  Long as you don't get turned around down here in these woods.   ;D

Ivey,
I was just checking out Logmaster's website.  I don't see any indication of prices.  How does the price compare on their mills with other bandmills?  Looking at their top of the line, LM 6 Doublecut, that thing must be $100,000! :o

Nice looking mills.

Looks like they sidestepped the cantilever versus four post design.  Their headrig, at least on the LM 4, has six posts.

Thanks,
Jim

Around half of your surmised price for the LM6.   ;)

The LM4 with the Cummins, I 'magine somewhere in the near vicinity of 32k.

Would be my guess.   ;D
