Felled and milled this oak for a client to use for a timber frame we will build at some point in the future.

Tidy looking planking butt but for that rot pocket, nice prep and felling too.

I have the 6 inch one. I couldn't afford the bigger one at the time and I didn't know how much work I would have for it either.

I've had the model 8 for about 8 years or so. Awesome machine. Especially when coupled with the slabber.
Always wondered what the difference is. I assumed its just the gearing, but that doesn't explain the price difference. You know the hp of your engine?

Yeah its 16hp, the 8 and 10 are 30hp or so right? I think the carriage is also longer to accommodate the bigger engine so it wouldn't fit in my SWB Transporter.

Yeah mine is 30hp. So if the carriage is shorter what's your max log diameter?

Its still 1.2m although I have squeezed 1.4ish once but you end up wasting a bit on either side. I think its just to accommodate the larger engine size rather than extra capacity.

Id like to get a bigger one one-day, just has to coincide with a bigger van purchase too. I like the flexibility of not having to tow a trailer for it.
