I agree, John. I have an email adress for a WoodMizer rep who was
very helpful. I'm not sure what the netiquette is regarding posting
someone else's email addy, but shoot me an email and I'll send it to
you. Or, you could go to
and hook up with them that way.
As far as a log five feet in diameter, most of the portable bandmills
I've seen only go to about 3 feet or so. It may have to be ripped
down to a more manageable size (with a huge freaking chainsaw or
something). The guy who cut up my cherry tree charged 30 cents/bf but
his invoice had a note on it saying that logs over 40" in diameter
would incur an extra charge.
At any rate, it would be well worth it, almost regardless of cost.
Even if you wind up spending 50 cents a bf and an additional $200 for
the extra work, you've still gotten a hell of a deal on a pantload of
My 2 cents.
