Never once laid eyes on an ez boardwalk other than pics and videos. First I see followed me home!!! Thanks to all who patiently responded to my questions and gave their time to call me and let me question them about their EZ experience.

Congratulations hopm!  Looks like you made a wise decision and purchase. 8)  There is nothing like a shiny new machine waiting to be operated.  The blue color (my favorite) makes it just that much exciting.  Hope you have a great time making the sawdust fly.

Please post your experience with the new mill.  Looks like the most capacity for the money you could buy.

Used mine yesterday for adopted SIL, had a couple small ash logs and gave them a Red Cedar,  he's started a new project business, since the virus  stuff started, reclaimed wood benches and some tables, any way enjoy the mill.

In response to farmfromkansas...I have been running a smaller mill for a little over 20 years. I saw the EZ about 6 years back and I really liked the simplicity of the design. I retired 3 years ago and started selling some wood and doing some custom cutting. Didnt take long for me to figure there was opportunity in bigger logs people didnt have equipment to handle. It took even less time to figure the loss when I had to whittle (bibby) a log before I started sawing. Started thinking about upgrade and no matter where I looked no matter how I compared EZ 40 was the go to for best bang for the buck.

Cant say enough about how ez😄Stanton, Tim, and David were to patiently accommodate my questions and meet my requests.

I kinda sorta got the mill set up Friday night and planned to saw after I got home from work Saturday,but I happened into to a load of free logs I couldnt pass on. Sooo...I only got to cut one log last night. It was a poplar....12.....got 11 10x 5/4 boards in 15 minutes or so. Needless to say I was very pleased.

My brother said the mill is so simple its high tech. The more I thought about it the more I realized the EZ Boardwalk mill is built and designed from a very high level of technological design that is lost to a large part of society....that being good ol common sense.
So far so good 👍👍👍

Congrats on the new mill.  You will be able to make a lot of lumber and sawdust with that machine.

Congratulations on the new mill! Glad things came together for you. I have about 20 hours on mine now so will do an oil change next time I get to use it.
I agree on the simplicity of the design. 
The 4 dogs are nice. Once the paint wears a little they will smooth out. I did manage to hit the top corner of a squaring arm simply because I did not check that it was lowered and out of the way. 
Mine was set to cut last board at 1 1/8" from bed. Live with it or you will kiss the top of the dog arm.   :D
I used the log turner last week on a large oak I was slabbing. Worked ok. Pine up to 20" I can rotate with cant hook. 
My friend saw the red tank and headed for it with the gas can. Didn't do it but I did put BIG letters on gas and lube just to keep me awake!
Enjoy!

Maybe someone here can help me with a question. On the EZ40 at the end of the bed there are two ears with 1/2"holes on the inside of the last frame crosspiece.. Can't figure what they are for. The turner doesn't fit between them. I'm sure they are useful for something. Any ideas?

There were stops welded on each end of my ezjr rail frame to prevent the saw head from rolling off the track.  Maybe something similar on the ez40.

Not stops, these are in the middle of the last log support, inside of frame. I thought it might be for turner but ears are not wide enough apart.

The holes on the end or the last log bunk?

Do you have the trailer package? 
It is for the log Turner winch system that also helps raise and lower the mill on and off the axle.

Yes I have the trailer pkg. not sure how winch helps in removal. I left trailer axle in place and raised on blocks with levelers.

Hossco- I thought the ears might have something to do with the turner and removing the axle. The ears are inside the last log support. I don't take the axle off but would like to learn how the turner can help remove axle.

This post might have done it...or my lurking around the board for a while before joining a couple days ago.  But either way, I just put a deposit down on the same mill.  Should be ready at the end of Sept, and I'm pretty excited.  Total newbie, but I've wanted my own mill for quite some time.  When a big storm put LOTS of trees down across south Arkansas in the spring I was really wishing I had one then.
