You could try posting that in the "Wanted" area of the forum. That's what I plan to do when the time comes and I need equipment.

has anyone built this like "Yellowhammer" on here did?  I sent him a message and asked if he wanted to build me one.  I would be willing to pay. looks like a great way to save your back.

To load it, back trailer to end opposite head.  Lift end and back under it.  Then roll head up the “ramp”.  Push rest of way on.  Two of us loaded mine that way.  It’s easier to do with 2 sections together.

For some super LT15 mods take a look at Forum member elk42's gallery.
Great looking mill.

That mill aint seen enough logs to qualify as used. Id call it a demo unit.
You done very well.
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

when I paid 5k for my LT 15 used it was about that old, the previous owner had built a trailer under it, I think that well maintained they will always be worth 5k. I`ve since added the pineywoods design hydraulic turner, which is awesome.

thanks! I'm going to build my own trailer for it. I have a 4' axel on tires with leaf springs and a hitch from a tractor supply trailer.  just need some steel to install under the existing frame.  going to pretty much copy how woodmizer LT15 GO trailer is.  I am also going to work on setting it up with at least 1 winch for log turning like the post earlier was set up.  I may even ad a 2cd winch for pressure to secure the log against the stops.  i will probably be doing alot of the sawing by myself so if I can reduce the amount of effort for a few hundred bucks it will be well worth it.

if anyone else has installed winches hooked to log turners or log clamps I am open to designs.  as of right now it looks like I will buy the woodmizer manual log turner kit and modify it.  I called the woodmizer rep and he said with the addition of a bracket or 2 I can make the LT28 manual log turner work on my LT15. its way overpriced... for what you get, so if i cant find anything else I will probably grab that one.

How will you use the extensions if you build a trailer under it?

Find an old boat trailer,  see a lot for sale without the titles really cheap. Cut the frame above the axles and maybe you will have to move the saddles to match the frame width of the LT 15. Just bolt it on. Will have to make a tongue for the front but the trailer will give you that also.

the trailer kit they offer is designed for 3 sections of track.  I will use it like that until I get my barn built at my new property.  then once thats done I will set it up with the full 4 sections of track so I can cut up to around 24 feet. 

I could probably brace the whole frame and trailer the whole 4 sections.  its only about 5 miles from my current home to where my 54 acres are. i'm gonna meet with a family member that owns a steel fabrication shop that may want to mill up some red maple I have... gotta love barter system!  i'm sure he will be willing to help out with the trailer system build. not that its complicated, but maybe with the steel and cutting down to size so I just have to bolt or weld on.

I will look at boat trailers available this week as well.

Careful about welding anything to the frame of your mill, easy to warp the frame.  Been there, done that.

good to know.  I think i will probably weld together the frame supports and then bolt them the way woodmizer kit bolts to the bed sections for they're trailer kit design. that way I can take it off if I want to set it up for good in a building.

 I put a trailer under mine years ago, also a winch claw turner, linked lever operated backstops, hydraulic jack toe boards and among other things a hybrid style two plane clamp.
