pulled the trigger
« on: April 26, 2010, 07:51:56 PM »
            Went and bought a used Lt 30 with 67 hrs on it. :) I intend to run it over to WM and have them go over it and show me how to maintain the machine. When it comes to mills i,m as green as they come  :D . But hey ya gotta start somewhere. Learning the care and use of the mill will be great.Learning what the log has to offer will be the best part of the deal for me. For me that,s the return i,m looking for out of the cost of the mill.  8) 8). Thought about the Lt 28 but this was a few thousand less. Think it will be a fine one to learn with ;D

 Good to hear you bought the LT30. Been wondering what you did about it. The LT30 I bought
with 206 hours on it seems to be in A-1 condition. Woodmizer in Missouri who was selling for
a customer went over it to make sure it was in workable condition. Not a complete tune-up
but I felt comfortable with their assessment of it. I have been running it some and greasing all
the grease fittings and oiling the chains and will be sawing wood with it this week.
  With 67 hours on yours I can imagine it being in  very good condition also.
  Happy sawing :)

Congratulations!  I started with an LT30 manual; I assume yours is a manual also?  If so, the main thing to remember is safety- it's very easy to put body parts in places where they can get hurt (don't ask) so you have to think and move slowly till you develop the right habits.  A log is just a log, but a leg, now that's another matter...

Congratulations on the "new" mill.

I had a WM service done on mine soon after I bought it.  It was money well spent, plus those guys are so helpful.

Lj, you shoulda been with me today.....2761 BF......and I've still got my butt...... :D

Way to go, Magicman... guess sawing that much is why you keep the "handle."  And sounds like you got to keep all your body parts as well, including the one you plant in your ride-along-seat so you can just enjoy the scenery while you the saw does all the work.   :D
