Wow,. thats some beautiful Slabs! 

 

Are you using 2 x MS880's? 

 

How did you find the job? Easier or harder than using a single MS880 and a 48" Mill and Bar?

 

If you dont mind me asking what did you charge for a job like that?

 

I had the dreaded black stain of death on a log I milled lately. :( The Cable then doubled up after this cut.

we are using 1x ms880 and 1x ms650.
plenty of power, biggest differance is using the hyper skip chain.

I have only ever used double headed mills. as far as the mill goes i actually like my swerber mill a lot more, i know its heavy but its 2 man system so does not have much effect on use.
i was going to sell the older setup but am not 100% sure now!!!!
