I will make sure I don't post my wife as she was trying the mill out as she was nude on that hot summers day back in July.

19 or 20" wheels with needle barrings with gr. certs .
the Timbery scale is right on. Cuts with 1" of the deck.
The cabinet is all steel, no plastic. The mill is all welded, no bolts.

I would have liked to have the timber king 2400 or the WM Lt40 but starting out could not see the investment. By the time I buy the Lynn parts to build one, Id have as much in it as I have with this package deal. I all most bought the NW 36" cut but had problems dealing with the rep and his way of pricing the extras. All the options on the NW - they have figured out and look really nice, custom fit. But each part of adding is pricy, to me. So I bought this one and adapted to ideas I had to work out extras I need. The 285 is same as 280 except the 285 is a trailer package, an extra 2 grand depending on the engine size. They go from 9hp -25 and at the time I bought mine they only had one ready with the 20.5 hp
I can say it seems to have enough power. I cant imagine using one of those small motors on a saw mill, Id never get any thing done.

Hello fellow sawyers I am new to this forum and I know this is several years past the original post but I have been looking at saw mills for several years now and only recently came across the Timbery sawmill.  There is very little information out there on this saw and after doing much research the m285 is the saw I have chosen and would like to give my opinion to those who might be looking so far my review is that both the sales guy Jerry and the company have gone above and beyond to make me the customer happy no questions asked the service is outstanding.  Although I have limited experience sawing, what little I have done the saw has preformed past my expectation there were several reasons why I chose this over the others first the price next the features such as the sawdust ejects opposite of the operators so I don't fill my shoes up with saw dust next the frame seemed very sturdy and I like the idea of both the water and the clutch ingauges at the same time with a push of the lever. I am excited to get to sawing my primary need for this is timbers for a shop on my property not trying to make a living but already I have people making a project lists If anyone has questions about the timbery or why I chose the M285 I'll be happy to try and answer and update as to with photos and reviews.
