Found a mill
« on: May 24, 2007, 06:44:43 PM »
Well I thinkI  finally found a good used mill, its a 2004 LT40HD with just over 800HRS on it. I will be picking it up at Woodmizer in Manilla  tomorrow. The fellow I purchased it from had a problem with the accuset board and had a new one so Woodmizer installed it today.

I have been looking for some time and looked a number of mills before finding this one. It also has autoclutch, lubemizer and a debarker. I will read up on posting pictures and try and post some.

Thanks everyone for your replies.
Ian and Kevin, Dave says "hello".
"thecfarm" Yes I do plan on building a sawmill shed from trees on our property. I will also be looking at doing some custom work.

I won't forget the pictures.
