EZ 40 VS Woodmizer lx150 or lt15wide ?
« on: September 14, 2020, 10:47:45 AM »
Curious opinions on Boardwalk EZ 40 or getting a Wood-Mizer lx150 or lt15wide. I'd like to keep it below 13k. I have a frontier OS23 and looking for something with a nice wide option.

The lx150 has power up/down and power feed 
I think simple set.
That gets my vote
Ez is built heavy which is nice.

I have come to the point I believe there are some really high quality mills available and everyone does their due diligence before purchasing. Mill purchase has to be according to your plans and needs. Because of this everyone believes their selection is the best. With that being said....😁😁😁...I canít imagine anything coming close  to exceeding my expectations as the EZ Boardwalk model 40.👍👍👍

Steve
I think the lt15 wide is 34"
Lx 150 35.5 "
Not sure on the Ez 40
I think 36" the frame is much heavier on the EZ

I have LT15 with 19hp gas engine.  Problem with the wider you cut, more HP is better.  So if you are cutting wide, choose the largest engine you can get on any of these.  Even if Diesel engine on LT15wide is rated same HP as gas, it probably has more torque I'm thinking, which might be better.  But whether you use gas, Diesel or electric also depends on your situation.  I run indoors and have been using gas so I have to have a lot of ventilation.  Planning to switch to electric(new mill with electric).
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

How soon do you need it? At this point in the state of the world that would be my #1 question. I ordered LT15 in July, picked up Aug21 but they did not have power feed that I ordered (and did not tell me until I showed up). As of call today they still have not shipped and do not know when they will but still have my money :)

The EZ looks like a real nice mill but I think all needs should be evaluated on an individual basis and nobody can tell you what you should get! You will love any of them I am sure, especially if #1 priority is wider cut.
