Kevin,

Maybe you should jot down some notes and take some pictures and send them to Wood-Mizer.  They may be interested.   ;)

It may not be something many users in the US may want but in Northern Europe and Russia,  it may be something to consider as an option.  

I was told the trailer package only came about after they had a number of requests to add one.  They first figured on people hauling the mill in the back of a PU but found a number of people wanted to take the mill to the logs and then bring the lumber and the mill back in one trip.

Bib,
Did that a few times already, little or no interest  their end.
I picked up the skis this morning and my welder is going to work on them today.
Looks like it should work but I guess I won`t know until I launch it.

Thanks Jeff,
Somebody trace this and tell me where I`m at !

I had a set of three skis made, two with boots for the tires to sit in and one for the tongue to keep the weight off the snowmachine.
Jacked the mill and dropped the tires in the boots and away I went.
The snowmachine was working but it wasn`t being over worked.
It slid real well on the main trail but when I turned down the trail to my camp it dropped through the trail twice and down into the snow because of the mild temperatures we`ve been having.
It worked really well over all, I got the mill back into the staging area, dropped it on the bed and wasn`t long getting it level.
I milled a couple of cedar logs on Sat. and a whack more on Sunday.
I`ll go back in at the end of the week and finish milling the rest of the logs, poplar and cedar.

I tried taking the mill in on just the wheels the previous week and it was futile.
The skis made all the difference.
The tires sit in these pockets that are welded to the skis and have a friction fit.
I used a small winch strap to secure the tire to the ski and it really worked well.
You need a groomed trail to run on with a small snowmachine like the Tundra, an Argo on tracks would be a better choice.

Don't know if this is a good thing. But I was surfing the links and clicked on Americanbandsaw.com. This is what I got. Web domain for sale for lack of payment. I would have to say this is not a good thing.

http://www.americanbandsaw.com/

Might want to double check before buying an American bandsaw. The link has been removed from the forestryforum links.

 I have a feeling they are going to be  thing of the past and nobody is going to want to buy that domain name due to the bad reputation they have. My brothers mill in Zanesville getting all the broken junk fixxed. he wants to sell it for 1/4 of what he paid for it. When it comes back from the shop. I am going to cut some green lumber with it and see how it does .
My brother was resawing first growth barn timbers with it and maybe the dang thing will cut green lumber with less breakdowns. I have a small pile of logs stockpiled and going to give myself a crash course in sawmilling.If it cuts green lumber ok I am thinking about buying it.
