I'd look into it a little further . The standard width of cut for a 1600 is 32" and the standard length is a little over 16 feet. I've see ones that can cut longer but not wider. As far as I know the 1600 was not available with "computer control" but you never know this may be an add on I don't know about. The remote throttle is probably an add on. It is a good price with the low hours and extras.

 i think the 1600 has 32" beteen the guide rollers and can handle a 36" log.  Sounds like this mill has some add ons,  computer and longer cut lenght, maybe factory add on?   All it needs is toe boards and a hyd clamp.  Sounds like a good deal with the sharpener and extra blades. Comptuer setworks speed up production a lot, for sure if it's not a walk along mill.  Steve

The newer 1600's can handle a 20' log and include a 1-plane hydraulic clamp (manual up-down).  The setworks are a $2000 add on.

I can't get an answer on the phone or an answer to an email, so I don't know what the deal is.  Probably either already sold or a scam.  They at least ought to pick up the phone and tell me it's sold!  :-[

I run a 1600 that I just bought this year and it has a 32" cut throat but has 37" between the head post so you can actually saw up to a 36" log on it if everything is just right. Also I can cut a 20'-6" log so maybe that is something they have improved.

Well, it wasn't a scam. Finally got a call yesterday and made the 6 hour trip to FL to check out the mill. All was as advertised and brought it home for 15,500 plus he threw a few other odds and ends in with it for free  The shed DID  come with it, so a return trip next weekend to retrieve the shed is in order. Thanks for the advice. Looking forward to cutting a little wood if I can get a chance this week. Will post pictures when able.

  Good going, does it have toe boards or hyd clamp.  Not hard to add if it doesn't.   Steve

Congrats on the new mill!  You made a really good deal.  Make sure it has the flow restrictor in the head down hydraulic control.

ladylake:  It has a manual toe board, which is not a big deal to me, and while the clamp itself is hydraulic, the height control of the clamp is manually adjusted.  I think I can add hydraulics to that if I need it without much trouble.

GA Mtn Man:  Can you elaborate on your comment regarding the flow restrictor?  Is that an issue I need to look out for or is that something I need to have added?  I know what a flow restrictor is, just not sure of its application here and what you mean. 

Thanks.

TK had trouble with setwork accuracy on the 2000 so they added a flow restrictor to slow the head down.  I imagine your 1600 uses the same parts as the 2000 and also needs the restrictor.  It's likely already been installed on your mill, but I would check with the previous owner or TK to make sure.  TK will send it to you no charge.
