It would not take much to hook up a electric wheel chair motor to that shaft...

Started my trailer build today for my 126.
With the voltage of the wheelchair motors you could still use you drill batterys...
The wheelchair motors are almost the same as a drill motor.
I would buy an extra charger and take out the wire and guts.
Then you could just plug in your drill battery into the modified charger thats wired to the motor.
On the out side of the modified charger you could put a 3 way toggle switch.

I like the way you think. ;D

In time, I am planning on adding hydraulics to my mill. I need help flipping  big logs and cants. :(

An old engine lift makes for easy log rolling.

I do have a backhoe, but it has been just so wet that I have to deal with so much mud. I started building a trailer for My 126. Stuff I had laying around. That way I can go to the log as needed.

 

 

Had an old axle that I pulled off an old trailer. Had to cut it to size to fit the new trailer. My welding skills are not the best, but I kind make two pieces of metal stick. ;D Besides that, I'm not suppose to weld. :D I did put a 12" piece of pipe thru the inside then I welded the axle up.

 

 

Woodland does have trailer plans for these mills. I do have one extension that puts the tracks at around 20'. The base of the trailer is 18'. When I add the tongue, I will make that removable. Don't need something to trip over. ;D

I have no idea what they was made for. I picked up 4 plates like that from the junkyard.
They have a welded seam of something as hard as carbide along both sides of each tooth.
It's very very hard to cut even with a cutoff grind wheel. I would never use them if I dint
have my blade guard stop on my mill. One hit with the blade on one of these would just
kill a blade.

Got some more done on the trailer today. The way I have the axle, I'm not going to fix it in place till I get the mill on, then try it on the road. Will move it if I need to.

 

 

Got the tongue in, just need some more welding there. I will be able to remove it once I move the mill in place. There will be some pins like what goes on a trailer hitch to lock it in place.

 

 

The most I have to move my mill is about 3 miles to another place I own that is about 300 ac.

Well, she got her first run today. Success.  8) She is not only on a trailer, but now has power feed. 8)

 

 

Due to the fact that the controller will only work if everything hooked up, I added the second motor. After sawing a 6x6x13' sill with only one motor, that is all that is needed. In fact, I had to slow the speed down just a hair. ;D

 

 

I have a bunch more pictures of the build.

Thanks. Planning a power toe board next. ;D That is going to be real easy to do now that I'm on a trailer. In fact, that open the door to do a lot with this little mill. ;D

Forgot to add a picture were I mounted the batteries and the power pack for the motors. Really was the only place to mount it. :(

 

 

I will be going back and rewire it and put all wires in flex tubing.
