Here is a video on of our Forum members made after he got his LT70.  It cuts pretty fast.  There's not a lot of time for cruise control while in the cut.

Just as a note in case you are wondering, his cants are bucked and then go through a resaw for pallet lumber.  It's a specialty situation and is not a normal sawing pattern nor sequence for lumber.  Ultimately he needed an even faster sawmill to meet his need.

I can't speak for the LT40, but the dragback guide fingers are not available for the LT40 unless you add them yourself.   The WM set made for the LT70 does not fit directly.  It requires modification.    I installed them on my mill a few months ago.
My drag back fingers will be here tomorrow. I spoke with Wood-Mizer a few times on building mine to be specific for the 40. Tomorrow I will find out how they did.
Did WM have a fingers solution for your LT40, or are they customizing something for you? If they have put something together, I would like to check on that for my 50.
