Well, the thing is on Order and is supposed to be about 6 weeks out. Will start adding pictures and such once it arrives. Will Baugh from Woodmizer Missouri is going to deliver it and do the set up / training once its done getting built.

I run a Super 70 wide with all the support equipment. Bought it last fall. It's had a couple hiccups, but Wood-Mizer has been excellent about getting it taken care of. I'd be happy to help answer any questions you might have.

I have  a two year old LT70 wide head dcs. It does not have the improved debarker design and it does not debark small diameter logs. Marty, do you know if WM will offer a upgrade kit to swap over to the new type?

I recently purchased a timberking 2200 the machine is solid I checked the design and build of all I could look at timberking, cook, woodmizer and having engineering back ground 26 years I know quality welds and dependable engineering and timberking surpasses the competition though the others are quality. As for the 2500 formerly the 2400 I would have one had the cost been lower the kubota diesel engines just sip fuel.  I do like the debarker new design much better mine is belt drive works great just a little long
