I guess I can tick this off the list of things that will>happen some day.  :D I used two boards to span the loader arms to load it on to the mill and just as it came off the loader I realised that I had forgotten to raise the manual backstops. It didn't roll fast but I still couldn't get there in time to stop it. Of course the customer was watching.  :D Had to use the FEL to get it back up on the mill.
The hurry-er I go the behind-er I get.

I am long since passed that one.  It has been a while but I am sure I will get back around to it.  Banjo

@WV Sawmiller that is when you will do it.  Get you an audience and things will go wrong.  Thats why I usually just shut the mill down when someone comes up. Banjo

   Yes and the bigger the audience the bigger and more impressive the mistake you will make has been my experience. :D Kind of like when we were in school and there was some real cute girl you were trying to impress. That's when you'd fall flat on your face.

Happened to me for the first time when a good friend stopped by to see the mill cut a log. He has a LT15. We both just laughed about it. :D

  The fender was left on to protect the tire from run-away logs. :D :D

I've done that twice, both times, only the offbearer and myself were there, "honest"!

Might as well laugh about it.....that's less messy than crying! Besides I just picked it up with my tractor and set it back on  the mill. No damage to anything except my pride.

The ones you throw off the mill with a chain turner and completely clear the tire - those are the ones you remember.   ;D

It's really irritating to roll on off your manual mill while using you can't hook. At least from what I gather. No witnesses.

Mr. Sheepkeeper, Sir,

I hate it when that happens :).

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
