Thanks a lot Fishpharmer.

Guys, the next questions are:

How many log dogs do i need? Of what type?

I have two small hydraulic rams, which could do the job may be.

Log turner? I'd be keen on a chain one. That might wait, and i will use a cant hook and the crane.

Laser? I'd be real keen on a laser line. But on the cheap ;D

How do i set it up? I was thinking railways ties. Builders friends tell me concrete piers. But i don't know how all of that will evolve. I might be buying a little bit of land just next to mine, to square it off.  So the saw will move i think.

Any advice?

The motor on it for the moment is 22kw. My electricity supply only 15kw. I wonder if i could start it up with the 15kw. I have a brand new 11kw motor that i could retrofit and cut slow.


Thanks a lot guys.

Kbeitz,
 I think that's elevation,I had to do a double take myself.
Satamax,
 Thanks for the pictures and good luck with the mill.You must have some large support equipment to feed that beast.

Beautiful part of the world and yes the truck is a real gem.FF member Loggah needs one to tow his restored Lombard log hauler.That would turn some peoples heads.
 Best of luck,Mick

If it's not  elevation thats got to be one BIG  truck...

And now a saw mill

For the moment, i'm searching ads for a frequency drive, which could limit the power.


Thanks.

Great score on that mill. That thing is a beast. All I can tell you is if you get a log that will max that thing out you are going to need some strong hyd. for turning and clamping. If that mill can cut 40' long you might want to consider putting two turners and two clamps. I know that with the 40' logs I cut there is so many times that having the extra turner and clamp is the only way that I can turn the logs.
Two LT70s and to much other support equipment to mention.

Customsawyer, yep that thing will max out at 12m, so that's 40 feet pretty much. May be i have a bit of leaway. I'm getting cranky, i want to make it run :D  My latest idea on log dogs, something like log tongs pulled by an hydraulic ram. That would be prety easy for centering. One fixed, the other one moveable to accomodate short or long logs.   Ok, two turners. I'll see what i can find in the way of chains and the like. Thanks a lot.

Warped, sorry for being French  ;D but i don't get it!

Tho i got a deal. I paid may be half the price of a brand new LT10.

Not to take this off topic. I figured from the picture with the writing on the road that this was on the Tour de France route. Beautiful country.

Yep, ...... tour de france! Because of all the passes around, we get, from june, to end of september, all the idiots cyclists, who think they own the road. No lights, no reflectors, no yellow jacket. Toll last year, three deaths just in the Lautaret pass!

Don't start me on road cycling, or i'll rant forever  ;D

Just out of interest, 8,000ft around here puts you up in the snow and clouds on top of this hill.  :D
