5600 hours is alot of wear...if the mill has been well protected amd well maintained, the price might not be bad....but if it looks lile it has been hit by a rusty bus...might be a little high.
One good indicator of conscientious maintenance is the roller bearings underneath the main rail...if they are not wore out and stuck, the rest of the mill is almost certaonly worth delving into.
Got Wood?
LT-15G GO chassis added.
WM sharpener and setter
And lots of junk.

A couple just sold here.  One minty and the other rode hard but worth the money.  Do a search in the for sale too get a feel for prices.  Just remember asking and hand shakin price may be quite different.

Al, I don't think that sounds like a bad price.

My mill is the same as that one, only it's a '95.

As already mentioned, might be high hours, but a lot depends on the maintenance of the mill.

Are there any extras (sharpener, setter, peavey, cant hook, blades, spare parts) that go with it!

Get the serial number & call woodmizer. They have an orange book value for used mills. They also keep a record on all replacement parts sold to each mill.

Hello my sawmill is a lt40hd built in 1996 less that 2 thousand hours and I paid around the asking price of the one you are looking at.
From watching auctions Ebay,IRS and Associated Auctions services I figure my mill would probably sell for between 10 to 12 thousand dollars in a auction in todays ecomony just my opinion.

there is an 2004 lt40 here in Michigan with less than 500 hrs for the same price, I don't know what comes with it, it's a 28hp gas engine.
I cut it twice and it's still too short

I didn't pay much more for a 2005 LT40HDD34 with a debarker, simple setworks and it had less than 500 hours.  I actually found it on the woodmizer used mill website.  I went and looked at it, made an offer, and he accepted it.

Thanks for the replies,my friend wants to wait a bit. I must admit i was excited about this young man getting started in something that has brought great pleasure to me.from building a home to a part time sawing business.For me it has been a learning curve that keeps me thinking .I have met some great people ,customers and here on the forum.I sure don't regret taking that first step.Got a portable job coming up soon can not wait .It's 100 miles away ,ordered extra stuff from woodmizer today so i'm covered.This sawing bug is nasty as most of you well know.
