Accuset 1; worth anything or trash pile?
« on: April 19, 2021, 05:57:05 PM »
I bought an LT40 with a burnt board at the power feed. Woodmizer pitched that rather than buy a new board, I should upgrade to the Accuset 2 that bypasses it anyway. I did that and have it working great. Anybody use the 1 anymore these days? Is it worth anything?

Since the Accuset1 is no longer supported and you know that it is probably compromised anyway, I would offer it on the:  Doyaneeda Board LINK

"Doyaneeda" is a place here on the Forestry Forum to list "for free" unwanted items that may be of value to a member.  It's on the Index page below the "For Sale" board.

Thanks for the response Magicman! The 1 was working fine but I had no up on my lever due to the burnt section in the Bob board. The 2 bypassed that board completely and controls my lever/motor functions now. What a lot of head scratching converting that as a rookie! The installation manual covers multiple years and wire colors, came with extra pieces and wires. Finally got it all dialed in now, on a 2005 with the 51 hp diesel; with 41 original hours and now a new Accuset 2. On to more milling!

Congrats on the change out.   smiley_thumbsup 

I do not look forward to the day when my Setworks (which was Wood-Mizer's first setworks) gives up the ghost.  Of course it also is unsupported and would be replaced with Accuset 2.  :-X

I upgraded from setworks a few years ago.

Everything is awesome except the cost....

But seriously, it is nice.
