What kind of mill do you have? We should probably talk. The fella that I used for band milling has retired.
We have a LT35hd and an unused CSM(60Ē). PM sent with contact.

Another one sighted today.
I only saw the sawing part as it was on another road heading away from me. Did not really look brand new, this was only about 15 minutes from the Chesterville WM dealer.
I could not even tell what make it was.

Saw the only one I've ever seen around here last week.  Some brand new Woodmizer on River Road.

I travel back roads and thruways all over the north east.  About 150k miles a year. And I havenít seen a sawmill in transit yet.  Iíve seen a pile band mill setup in yards or landings.

I see ads and signs for mobile sawmilling all the time in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.  I have only one time seen a mobile sawmill on the road.  It was a woodmizer.

I just spotted a Belsaw on a steel framing taken apart into 3 sections being hauled in Western NY.  Must be staying up that way. Guy was headed north toward the lake and away from the scrap yards.  

If your a forum member contact me.  Iíd be willing to lend a hand if needed. Good luck !

I have only seen a few, but I saw what looked like a LT35 going down the road today being pulled by a Jeep Cherokee.
