Logosol f2 / f2+

Recommended Posts

seeing as I'm waiting for a 661 to show up I've been idly looking at different mills. kind of set my sights on a panther mill but remembered about logsol f2 though it's the f2 + I'm more interested in ..Any one used these? a mate bought an f2 but has had no prior milling experience.used it for one day so far... Said hes not got the hang of it yet...but they look like a good portable set up for back garden milling. or are they a massive faff if just doing the odd log ??

I use an M7 and worth every penny and effortless to mill logs. One for sale on the forum but asking to much in my opinion but open to offers

How transportable are these logsol f2 / m7 mills?  It looks like it can be broken down into sections quite easily...but I figure looks can be deceiving.  Idea would be to have it so I can store it my garage when not in use, and also transport it and set it up in folks back yards for a bit of on site milling.

Can be stripped down but will take a little while to transport and reassemble. Like everything else once you have done it a few times you get quicker at it.

I have an f2, I would call myself relatively new to milling and find that setting up can be a swift 20 mins if you have bearers for the feet already set level, but always pays to take the time to check and double check that the bed is level

I have an M7 and i think the F2 are easier as its the updated version of the M7/8 models. Take me an hour to assemble the M7 but if i need to transport it i just put it on my trailer so not really an issue.

spoke to a guy with an f2+ and he says that getting it level is the biggest hassle when moving it to a new site. He also added that due to this you have to move to the logs to mill so a loader is a godsend. I guess it's one of the good points for Alaskan style mills is that you can mill a log in place or not have to move it very far and doest require the log to sit level but takes time setting up the first cut and maybe more work if cutting beams and and rails rather than just boards.
