I love my 35hyd. Came down to price for me.  I do some sawing for others and customers are always happy with the product.

You are very close to the Oregon Wood-Mizer store, stop in and visit them and let the guys that can steer you in the right direction show you first hand how they work and what they cost.
roll with it

I've been to the Wood-Mixer shop 3 or 4 times, bugged James for several hours giant splinter , yes good people. I think the 35hyd is where i'm headed, but the mast configuration is a concern. the material size looks the same, but spacing is quite different. woodenhead is your info from a WM owner?
this afternoon I put some money down to hold a price i was quoted,-- january sale price + discount  on factory installed debarker  OO-boy!
Thanks all,  Paul

PLNA???   Patternmakers League of  North America  or was it   NAPL ?  North American Patternmakers' League.  They represented the guys in Ford plants here and in Canada.

They were absorbed into the larger IAM fifteen or so years ago.  Didn't change the negotiation issues much..just the players.

It's good to know patternmakers when you need something made precisely......................just don't get in an argument with them! :D :D   They're as bad as engineers!

Pattern Maker,

About 95% of my information comes ultimately from the good folks at Woodmizer themselves.  They know me well up this way given I've asked about a thousand questions  :D

The LT35 post is slightly stronger than my LT28.  I know that because I've asked how easy it would be to convert from mine to the 35.  ;D  The LT35 is different from the LT40 in that the 40 has a double post system riding along the uni-rail.  The LT40 is designed to handle heavier engine options as well as a heavier/more options (heavier debarker, drag back, auto clutch, etc.).  But the LT35 is designed to handle the options that are offered for it.  ;)

If you own a swing blade mill, what do you miss about the bandsaw mill?
