We'll hope that it handles what it looks like it ought to handle. Time will tell, and hope you keep us posted.

MRowsh,
Nice looking mill.  Herman is a great guy and always a phone call away.
Have fun!

Could not work on land to start clearing a flat area for the saw work area due to weather conditions, but I did started it up without a log on it and worked with levers for a while to get the hang of it. Did the best I could with the clip here one handed. It is better than nothing for those of you who are interested.

The only thing I see wrong ??? is that the log supply will run out about the time you get the feel for it :-\
Looks like a good solid machine caplable of having some good production days 8) Once you get the first ding in it  :snowball: you will have quite a work horse ;D and then the logging begins :new_year:

Glad to see I am not the only one with LM2!!

How long have you have been using your LM2?  How long is your rig?
Any issues?

Next Feb will be 2 yr.'s It will saw a 24' pretty easy it will go more but why LOL I did get the 34 CAT upgrade You follow what Herman and Ed have taught You and just start out slow and steady speed will come. I use ear plugs and can hear the saw let that be a good judge as how its doing took me 6 band's to find out when they got dull LOL but they will let you know some times real fast and yes the breaking sound LOL but you'll learn watching the saw dust coming off the blade. No major issues I bought some wheel scrapper's because I didn't like how they were wearing but then I learned not to adjust them till the blade has the 6000 psi applied and the In is In and Out is Out is correct. That will be a LM owner thing. I could go on but heck just ask I'm here often.

Any of you guys that recently had LogMasters delivered:  Was there anything in your experience that, in hindsight, foreshadowed the fall of LogMaster?   Might be instructive for future buyers of mills as warning signs to look out for.

Just curious,
