You are welcome to come down to the sycamore project. There is only one mill but we have a good time. If you are willing to wait till Oct. there is the ag expo in Moultre Ga.
Two LT70s, Nyle L200 kiln, 4 head planer, 30" double surface planer, Lucus dedicated slaber, Slabmizer, and enough rolling stock and chainsaws to keep it all running.

Whats your budget for material handing equipment?

this is a great video of what happens when you try to cut a 30" (small end) frozen cottenwood that is 20' long.   You'll note that they slab a chunk off because there 5000lb forklift wont pick it up.

Gives you an idea of what its like to try to cut up a 30+ inch log and the work it takes.

FYI loader capacities in excess of 3000lb are found on 75hp tractors and up as well as 60hp skidsteers and up.

Thanks for posting. Surprised there wasn't some blade wave.

The Great Sawmill Shootout is really worth the time and money spent to attend for anyone who has any interest at all in sawmills! However, I thought they have them every other year, but perhaps there are plenty of sawmills that attend even on the years that are Great Firewood Processor Shootout years.

Right!  This year is firewood processors.  And there will be plenty of sawmill manufacturers demonstrating as exhibitors.  Good chance to see the equipment up close & personal, and maybe score a good deal on a demo mill.

Thank you all for the invites and info.  I'll have to take ya'll up on the invites asap.  Like I said, life is crazy right now. It's softball/gymnastic/baseball season.  My weekends are gone.  Poston, how far off of 85 are you? Custom, the sycamore project sounds like a blast.  Wish I could make it.
Schmism, I'm going to be purchasing a skidsteer this fall.  I figure it'll handle what I need it to.  Thanks for the video.
Seaman, we'd love that.  Looking for a good camper at the moment. 
Thanks again everybody.

You could look at mills at the Woodmizer Open House at Newnan, GA on Satrday, May 3rd. They usually have several models to see.
