    I got this tree hauled in two, full trailer loads. This is two 13' logs. Had to mill them down to be movable. The last one I removed the grapple to be able to lift the butt end and rotate the log onto the trailer, then was able to lift the smaller end with the grapple, and push onto the trailer.

    I want/ need a bigger saw and mill to cut these things down into bandsaw mill sizes.


    31" Max cut on the mill

    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Sweet pics. How long does it take to make one pass?

    don't know.

    The other one is down to the spar, and hauled.

    Going to grab my loader from the jobsite, and bring it home tonight. Having too many logs in the same drop spot is a hassle.

    I'll try to time the passes. Have to break down the big butt log on #2 just to move, and further CSM or bandsaw mill.

    Have some mis-tint paint for end-painting.

    Nope. Only 404 and 3/8 ripping.

    I wonder how it works.


    Small milling job today for me. Clearing some black walnut I dropped a couple weeks ago.

    Anyone know the profile name for the Granberg rails? Propietary, guessing not?

    Mill rails, not the first-cut track, unless one-and-the-same.

    Anyone have the size on this?

    I'd rather buy a long piece, locally, than a bunch of 2' sections.

    If it was me, given some of y'all are all about the potential to not waste the wood that comes your way, optimize a saleable product, maybe make beautiful planks, I'd seriously think about this mill.

    My cousin-in-law has one...and oh goodness, he has cut some magnificent boards with it. I have a couple of times helped him with cutting, bucking, rigging, and man-handling logs onto the mill bed, some pretty nice sized ponderosa pine. The results have been awfully fine.

    I know...the up front cost is steep, and it doesn't move about easily. But it is a mighty fine mill.
