A friend of mine runs a lucas mill and a mahoe. He had a customer that had used a big russian helicopter to extract Rimu logs out of the bush to a flat paddock . there was still only limited access to the area and he dragged his lucas mill in with an atv . the logs were scattered around this paddock just as the chopper had left them. He just dragged the mill around on some 10 x2s from log to log and milled them up leaving stacks of timber and the waste and sawdust behind him . These were big heavy logs up to 5 tons and he milled the lot with only a timber jack to level the odd log and no other machinery. The timber was the got out to the road by atv and trailer. And from memory there was 50 odd logs so quiet a feat :) ::) 8)Just shows what can be done with the lucas mill , I intend to buy one to comliment my Mahoe.

Not to hijack the thread, but how do you like your Mahoe? I'm wondering how it compares to my Lucas.

They taste like grits.  Put a little butter on them and serve hot.   :D

The LT80 is some monstor of a mill.  Kind of like two mills mixed together.



In this video you can see it has 2 clamps, 4 back supports, at least three roller toe boars and one power roller to move log forward/back on mill.  It has a chain turner and claw turner. Two axles, three loading arms.  It also has a spare tire mounted in the frame.  There looks to be an odd cutout in the drive side door. 

The debarker looks like it's mounted different?

There looks to be an extension cord set up to run to the head.  I wonder if it's running the debarker?  It seems to be a lot more aggressive than our DC debarker.

Anyone figure out what country they're in?

 Looked up the profile of Sosenkatartak and it shows the country to be Poland.
