Woodmizer said that neither were popular options for the mill I ordered, but I imagine itd be due to the cost. They said most prefer to be close to the head when sawing.

Of course there is another option:


 
Yes, when the wind is wrong I get sawdust but those times are rare.  If I was ordering a new sawmill today it would be so equipped.

Maybe at first, for a little while. You will eventually develop a funny walk after getting trained to step around the tire.  :D
In all seriousness the 50 is a lot of mill and if you will be using the drag back then not walking along with the mill is a much more efficient way to saw.

I can see riding, like MM.  Low effort, high efficiency, especially with off bearers, high production. The umbrella is sweet. I wonder about whiplash? ???  

I can see standing and feeding boards back on the dragback using the command console. Low effort, never moving more than a few feet from sawing, stacking, and operating. I have done many millions of pounds this way.   

I would in no way want to walk and follow the head of my old LT40 or especially my LT70, board after board, mile after mile, day after day, year after year.  Nope.  Just me.  I had a walk along, never again.  Got too much sawdust in my ears and shoes.   :D

To me, this option falls into a classic Yellowhammerism of Take steps to save steps.

YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.
