Sorry for the late reply... have been away from the forum for a while.  Just take off the movable guide (just takes a minute).  I've cut oak, sycamore, and honeylocust slabs 32" wide with absolutely no problem!  The blade somehow always stays on the bandwheel, though I make sure I have a sharp blade and don't push it hard.  Here's a video of how I do it.  The only change is that I have found it faster and easier to remove the blade guide, rather than swing it up out of the way.

Coast Steve, I have the EZ Boardwalk 40 with 8 ft. Ext. Main deck will cut up to 16 ft. I have mine set up for portable use with leveling jacks. We built a 24 x 24  enclosed horse barn with only 5 trees. They were 30 to 36" 10 to 16' long. Sawmill isn't light weight trust me. I have pics of mill in gallery.
