I bought a Bell 1000 processor (the one shown on their web site) Sent a long time researching. Could not be happier. Also have demoed it to others. ( i love to) Do about 30 bush cords now a year. As to sharpening; very little and not sure why. It stays sharp way longer than a chain saw??? Maybe more oil on the bar. Bought a load of maple in June last year. Logs were real muddy ( won't do that again) Figured I'd be destroying chains but still on original chain with miner touch ups. As far as customer support I still can't believe how well I've been treated.  
TinHorse, do you have time to update your experience with the Bell 1000. I've been looking at one myself.

Working a load of firewood right now. Normally I'm cutting logs off my own property but because of lumber order s and a shop this year I've fallen behind on cutting. So I just had a load of logs delivered 2 days ago. My own logs are cut at about 12' length. They fit the processor well. The purchased load ranges from 16'6" to 19'. A little long for the trough. For now I've just set a lift of pallets at the end and gives enough support. Not the best solution but works. I may also just cut the logs in half. But that increases feed time. I'll build something this year to improve.
It was -15 C yesterday. Sitting about a month and fired right up. I'm still amazed a what it can pull through it. Some of the purchased stuff is pretty rough. This machine is built solid. No complaints.
Let me know if I can help.
