AH! You guys with all that fancy powered equipment! Now us manual load and mill guys may be slow, but I for myself, have never rolled a log off like that. We are thoughtful and careful.  ;D :D

Mr. Sheepkeeper, Sir,

I hate it when that happens :).

BTW, this is the modified Robert's Reverse Roll Quartersawing Technique (RRRQS).  It requires a few more detailed steps than the one described in the manual  ;D.

For some reason I think you got the wrong lever.  Got the log stop one instead of the clamp one.
Sure hope it does not take too long to rebuild you pride.

Wondering how you saw with the fender on?
Easy, it's not in the way and I just step a little wider to get around it. I only leave it on when I'm sawing at home, on mobile jobs it comes off.

Just surprised that the head clears the fender.  On my mills there is about 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 " clearance above the tire itself in a setup where most of the weight is taken off of the tire.  No way the head can pass by a fender.  Lt40 super or LT70 super

Both of my fenders are the first things removed during setup and the last things installed after take down.  My saw head will not pass the right fender and the loader will not clear the left fender.

Iíve done this particular Oops once or twice, but never was calm enough to snap a photo.  

Sooner or later, when during the RRRQS technique, there will be an ďover roleĒ.

Take steps to save steps.

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

The ones you throw off the mill with a chain turner and completely clear the tire - those are the ones you remember.   ;D
I did that yesterday with a 5.5 x 20 inch ten foot cant, with my turning claw.  Guess I blinked or something.  I was hot and ready for a break.  It went over the backstops, all but one.  Half on and half off.   I chained it to the the grapple and lifted it back onto the mill.  Going to get the tractor is what I call the walk of shame.

Iíve done that a couple times myself. I have a lt-15 set up stationary and I do it when Iím loading the log ramps up with logs and try to get one more on and push just a little bit and one will roll just right and across the mill it goes.

the last time I did it was with a 16 'ft long 22" diameter red oak log, did I mention my mill is inside a shed, on blocking, 3 ft away from a concrete wall...getting the log out from between the mill and the wall was an adventure I`d rather forget, but the memory keeps me from doing it again,,, for a while

 Alanh, I'm right with you exactly.The only diff. was mine was 14'. I spent a couple hrs getting it up enough to get a strap around to winch it out with the tractor. Ended up re-leveling the base then the mill.

And that's why I do it that way. I can barely touch the front bungee, forget about the other one otherwise.

I have modified the dust chute to be more like that on the LT35 so that it throws the sawdust a little further away from the walking path. Probably wouldn't work without the mod. Here is a pic to illustrate. Sawhead is at 1 inch.

 I haven't done that ... more than 2 or three times. It took a few four letter words to put that back on there. 
It's the going that counts not the distance!
