Check out this mill...

 I was just being a youtube bum a few mins ago and found this video....  Very interesting to say the least.  :)

Looks a bit on the slow, deliberate side. And not showing much on getting rid of slabs and boards.  
And I'd bet the cost is outstanding as well.
But it was an interesting video, and thanks for the enlightenment. ;)

Really nice mill.

Seems to be a little rough on turning cants!

I like the sawdust collection system!

Way out of my budget, but nice!

I'm quite happy getting the exercise pushing my Rimu twinsaw in the hot sun.  Maybe in another ten years or so.  I'll get myself one for my 80th birthday. :D

Interesting but I wouldn't say better. I reminds me a bit of my first saw, a Breezewood. It had a seat that allowed the sawyer to have the same view. The problem is it is not a one man machine when there is a seat on the machine, an off bearer is needed. IMO, the double turner and double clamping system look rather cumbersome. I do like the sawdust catcher though.

Those mousetraps are fine as long as you have steel toed boots on.... kinda hard on toes otherwise.  :D  :D  Don't ask how I know.

Nice mill!  I could probably afford a single hydraulic lifter and maybe even one saw blade!

It looks like a neat mill but I don't see the need for two debarkers. I would also put a green chain on the off load side to help keep things from falling on the mill.
Two LT70s and to much other support equipment to mention.

I got to thinking about what the hydraulic schematic would look like.  Must be miles and miles of hoses and hundreds of valves and motors.

The hydraulic valves must be electric operated.  You couldn't drag hoses back and forth from the cab.
