I'm slowly breakin' my wife in on this sawmill business..  :D

She' liked the idea of the used LT40 better than the new Peterson, cause it was a bunch less money..  ;D

Now if I could just earn enough for a new Peterson..  8)

I am sure that you are ready and willing to sell it, but I bet Patty would set the price and you would have an hard time selling it at that price.  After all why would someone pay the new LT-70 price for an used LT-40 mill. :D :D :D :D :D

Thanks to all for the great responses. I didn't get anything all that special extra on it as it will live with mostly large oaks, cypress, and popular on it and I think that in the way I saw them with the butt end of the log facing me I am able to grab the chain saw and trim some from time to time as the saw is making its cut so I didn't get the remote or anything like that. I just got the mill with the 62hp cat engine and the debarker I think was extra on it. Oh I just remembered I order the WM log deck as well I will let you all know how that works. Thanks again for all the cheers in the background. 8)
