The LT35HDG25 should be at our open house October 16th. There are some other changes or additions coming to some of the models.
LT15  Full frame trailer, LT70 DCS shown at the New York show, LT40 + with loader and turner.

I dont think there will be any kits available for the current LT28 because of the alternator needed to run some of the new features.

I hope the WM website is updated soon with some more pics/info/pricing of all the new toys so I have some more things to dream about  :D

You guys at the MO show got a sneak preview of the LT35 and Bibbyman's press release/review. The WM website will be updated very soon with all the details on the new LT35, LT70 DCS, and LT15GO models.

On the LT35, the bed is fully hydraulic like the LT40HD. The head is similar to the LT28 but with power up/down & power feed. At Wood-Mizer, we have indeed been busy and this mill is the result of listening to customer feedback and using our proven technology on a new model. Production on these mills will be in full swing this month.

So how does the new LT35 compare valuewise to the Lt40 G28 package with the hydraulic+ pkg.,logrite cant hook,10 blades & trailer brake pack ? Unfortunately I just read about the LT40 deal AFTER the deal expired  >:( So I'm now curious about the differences/advantages of these two set ups.
Has anyone north of the border ever bought a new mill & brought it across ? is there any savings to be had ?

Bibbyman,

I was wondering why is the copper bus bar some much shorter than the LT40?
It looks like you have to move the head all the way back to get the hydraulics to work.

The LT35 compared to the LT40HDG28;

The bed and all hydraulic functions are the same.

Both come with Simple Setworks standard.

Both take the same blade size range.

Both have power up/down and head drive.

Where I see differences…

The engine is 25 hp vs. standard 28hp on the LT40. 

The LT35 has manual blade guide adjustment vs. having a powered guide on the LT40.

The new LT40HDG28 comes with Auto-Clutch.  LT35 is a manual lever.

The major difference is that you can get a lot of options on the LT40HDG28 that are not available on the LT35.  Debarker, Lube-Mizer, Command Control, Accuset, Laser sight, Dragback ..  and a large diesel 35hp Yanmar engine.

If you’re in the market for a barebones LT40HDG28, then by going to the LT35 you only give up 3hp and have to do a couple of things manual like we all had to do back in the good ol’ days.  For about $4,500 less. 

P.S.   I see that on the WM site they say they have extended the prices until December 31.  I don’t see the package deal you’re talking about though.

I don't know the reason.  JB said there was one but was having a "senior moment" right then and couldn't think of the reason. I'll check with him and see what he says.

Thanks Bibbyman,what are the thoughts on the single mast vs dual ? The deal was advertised in Sawmill & Woodlot management magazine.

JB got back to me.  Seems that the head drive mechanics (the drive sprocket) would not clear the strip if it were longer.

I'd like to have an LT40 with a single mast!  The single mast on the LT28 and LT35 are designed to hold what looks to be the LT15 head.  The advantage is that the head is in front of the post.  This lets the cover hinge and open wide to change the blade.

But apparently this head design is not robust enough to handle all the options like board return, debarker, etc.

I don't know if I'd say it's "not robust enough" to handle a board return, debarker,etc ...afterall  the LT70 uses the same single post design doesn't it? I've wondered why they haven't changed all the mills to the single post to be honest. You still have 4 surface areas for adjustment. So long as that single post is stout you should be good to go. But I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.  ;)

The mast assmebly on the LT28 is not nearly as big as the mast used on the LT70.  Also, the saw head on the LT28 and LT35 is pretty much the same as on the LT15.

The LT40 uses a 2-Post mast, the LT35 only has 1-Post, but they're both cantilever design.

Yes Chuck,  I'm familiar with the LT30's and LT40's. I've had five of them.  ;D It's a sickness.

What I was getting at is that the single post (if it were of robust thickness and rigid enough) can provide all the support a head needs as evidenced by the LT70 since it uses a single post. If I'm thinking right, on the LT70 there are wheels that are on each side of the post with adjustments on them for the alignment of the head. We accomplish the same thing on our two mast heads a different way. Kind of like people thinking the monorail is somehow weaker than a twin rail frame. Actually the monorail is a twin rail. It's just that they're stacked. When you go through the full alignment process and you have to align the bearings that are tucked up under that bottom rail you can see how that rigidity is achieved albeit through a different method than the twin track frame that are horizontal to each other.

On our two post mills we have 4 surfaces that our pads travel on going up and down. Essentially the monorail does as well, the the two edges/corners of the square post on the front and back side.

I know that the cam bearings that the LT70 ride on is bigger than the ones on a LT40 and that makes that area lose a little bit of clearance which is not a big deal because you gain the wider throat on the 70 but might hurt you on the 40.
Two LT70s and to much other support equipment to mention.
