Peter, have you considered a wireless remote? That's what I run, and I am not likely to give it up any time soon. Jeremy builds the wireless remotes, or at least he built mine, which was one of the first sold. I can stand anywhere I have to to (Tom) get out of the dust. Pine isn't too bad, but oaks and locust are bad for me.

If you do go with a 70 will you go stationary electric? It's a great excuse to not do portable jobs. :D

Yea the remote is the only way to go and cut 45' other than what I have. I called Wood Mizer to see what they would give me for my 08 LT 40  and get a 70.
so will see :)

I've never run mine with the seat, but given the prevailing winds blowing the sawdust that direction I'm glad I have the basic system. Even a pedestal mount would keep you stuck in one location if the wind was changing direction (as it does occasionally for me).

The way it is now, I can get out of the way no matter which way it is blowing and just let the mill proceed along on it's own.  :)

I was just on the WM website looking at hydraulic mills.  I've been thinking of upgrading my LT15.  Hmmmm.
