Never been to the one in VT.But I go to the one in Maine. I try to go both days. One day to look at the sawmills and one day for the logging stuff.

Ray:
I believe it is the same show - on odd numbered years it is held in ME and on even numbered years it is held in VT.  It is held in Essex Jct. which is part of the greater Burlington area so that is why sometimes it is said to be in Burlington.
I already signed up and have gotten my confirmation receipt number.
If you come let me now and I may try and meet up with you and others, depending on my commitments.

It is the same outfit. But have heard it's better in Maine. Or was, up until the show in '15. I heard some unhappy reports about that year. I have no idea what state sells the most.

In Vermont you are only allowed two turkeys in the spring season.
Since the season opens 5/1 you should have both tags used by 5/2 unless you need to brush up on your triggernometry.

WELL,
I'm also taking a friend from work out and calling for him, as well as my fiancée. Got a few birds spotted. But what's the fun of tagging out opening weekend? And miss out on the sleep deprivation filled month known as turkey season?

We won't hold that against you. (well we should but we won't).

You might need to bring some rain gear. Doesn't look good 20% chance of rain but 63° for temp.

I'll be in the greater Burlington, VT area on Thursday on other tool selling business. And therefore I'm staying over in South Burlington Thursday night so I can be on hand for Friday morning.

Is anyone interested in getting together on Thursday for supper?

Give me a PM or post here and we'll see if we can get together for a while in the evening.

Just an observation: I think Labonville misses a HUGE selling opportunity by not bringing a ton of their merchandise to these shows. Handing out catalogs and pens is nice but I overhear so many people wanting to buy stuff from them and it's all for display.

If the weather is cruddy I might take a trip, if it's nice out I'll be sawing!  Just met Jeremy and the WM train to get parts, which was swell, looks like they have a 70 wide, a log splitter, edgers, I'm not sure what else I was drooling over the 70 wide lol

My brother and I were at the show today. Weather was great.  Ordered some bands from WM.  I didn't really meet up with anyone.   We stayed in South Burlington last night.  Lots of fond memories in Burlington, my youngest daughter went to college there.

I was looking at forwarding trailers. Asked about the Farmi's (they didn't have any for display) their top of the line profdrive trailer is pushing $100k! Then add your forestry package tractor! He said they don't sell many of those  :D

It was a great day and a fun Expo.  While taking about the wide LT15, I then see my wife walking towards me with two metal bases for a bench.  She had been talking with Kevin from logrite.  She got the last two white bases.  She was for black but they sold out.  Looks like I will be cutting some slabs for benches.

I liked that forwarder a lot, but was afraid to ask the price. Glad I did not. Hey if you gotta ask the price you cant afford it...

Great time at the show! We really lucked out with the weather. I got to see Kevin again, and I finally met Jim Rogers. Those Logrite legs are awesome. I had held the belief that they would take away from the beauty of the slabs but they really complement them. Lots of French Canadians at the show this year, I got to practice my broken French!

I really think there is a missed market for smaller equipment. Massachusetts has a ton of woodlots, mostly privately held and not large in size. A small skidder, forwarder, etc. that could harvest or thin these small lots without needing a big skid road and being able to trailer behind a 1-ton truck would be pretty nice for a logger and landowner both. Those Vimek machines are made in Europe where they have already embraced the need for smaller machines. A guy in the U.S. either has to pay an arm and a leg for the European stuff or rebuild an old tree-farmer to get something in that size range here. Did anyone check out Mr. Collin's Workall? This is a perfect small machine. I feel bad for the guy; he's never sold one. His price is way too high, but if someone could get behind him, refine the design a bit to pretty it up, etc. I think that machine is winner!

The Workall was at the Bangor show too. I think it's been there for years.
