Panther PM-60 Mill - 42" GB Lo Pro Bar - 20" Cherry Tree and it's all good!

Recommended Posts

Am going to post each new vid we do as an individual thread from now on - I think it then makes it easier to find what you are looking for and also adds more benefit to the arbtalk platform.

 

Simple concept this yet what a game changer! It's almost [but not quite] as much so as the winch - use your large mill to mill a smaller tree - there is a limit ie. would not advise a 64" bar on an 18" tree.

 

Set up:

  • PM-60 60" Mill
  • NEW Panther Winch set up [see other arbtalk thread in Panther sub forum]
  • 42" GB Lo Pro Bar
  • 20" Cherry

 

Not only can you fit the larger Panther to the small 42" lo pro bar - find assembly to do this here

Rob i did phone you twice yesterday. I need a couple of new ripping chains for my 36" GB bar to go on my stihl 038 . Also looking for a new 24"  milling bar and chains to. What options do you suggest as will be used on an m7  logosol as my backup saw for smaller stuff.

Great stuff! I'll be investing in one of these when I next Mill some bigger Logs. 

 

Good to see a demonstration of using a Winch by a competent operator. Clearly demonstrating its ease of use and effectiveness.

Stick to all lo pro - it's the best set up in my opinion and what I use.

Hi Rob,

 I'm looking at your PM48 kit and before I purchase I had a couple of questions.

What grinding stone will I need for the lo-pro chain? In case I already have it...

I've got a 660 and i'm assuming it'll have the grunt to push this rig, Y?

 

Last, I also see there is now an intermediate post for shorter bars on longer mills... is this a big faff to change between the two setups?  

 

I wanted to change as I have one of your Eco mills but am spending a lot of time getting the depth accurate and the Panthers seem to have this down pat. + the extra width offered seems a good call.

 

Thanks

 

Bob

If you are not going wider or getting a larger saw in the future then stick with the PM48.

 

5/32"[4mm stone] for 3/8 Lo Pro chain.

 

I like the larger mills weight as it keeps it flatter on the log - but this is personal preference - no once the middle bracket is set up it's not a faff to change - but it is a faff to get it set up and working well first time round.
