Have just purchased a Wood Mixer LT40 Hydraulic. I have never owned a mill! I'm 63 years old....have always wanted a mill...I have a wonderful wife that said if you want one, gray it. I farmed for years & still love on the farm & rent my land. One of the reasons I really wanted to get the mill is I have a grandson 11 years old & absolutely loves the outdoors. I figured helping me on. the mill would gain him some good work ethic & I could pay him & thus he would see the benefits of hard work. When he graduates from HS in several years...he can have it! The dream has always been mine to own a mill & now I have a grandson that is sharing the dream with me. My mill delivers December 7th & we are excited. We have built a trailer with a log arch as well as purchased a Logrite T36 log arch to retrieve logs close to the farm.

One question for all....how many extra blades do I need?
I have 60 coming with the mill. I am 200 miles from the dealer & absolutely want to have plenty of blades.
Thanks in advance for the replies.

tuckerrandy,welcome to the forum.
Lucky grandson and good for you!! We work hard our whole life and should have things to fulfill our dreams and wants.
Going to need a peavey or a cantdog from Logrite too.
Whatcha pulling the Logrite arch with? Good choice on that.
And what's the plan for the lumber?

Welcome to the Forestry Forum, tuckerrandy.  I use Wood-Mizer Resharp service and 60 blades should serve you well.

Welcome tuckerrandy.  My grandsons love helping me on the mill and it is so good to see them learn to enjoy hard work.

Welcome to the Forestry Forum, tuckerrandy!

It makes a difference in the blade quantity required whether you sharpen them yourself or use ReSharp!

If you sharpen your own blades, you don't really need 60 blades, but they won't go to waste!

If you use the ReSharp service, 60 blades should insure that you always have sharp blades on hand!
