log clearance height

On the Lucas Mills how much height do you have if you raise the slabbing blade as high as it goes to the ground?

Hi Xlogger,

Your maximum log size on the dedicated slabbers would be either 60 or 76 inches for the smaller two models. However on some logs you will need to block up the end frames to get the max cut. Ill grab a tape the next time I have one set up. I can tell you the DSM endframes are 5 or 6 inches higher than the swing mills endframes to accommodate the larger logs.
