  1. Wow, I never thought we would see the day when you would go down that route having sold a successful mill previously. I stand corrected but isn't that a line turning cants into dimensioned boards ? So we wait with interest to see what you migrate into next in the timber world.
  2. Manual Hydraulic Toe Board is £ 490 +vat - essential really for log centering.
  3. Yes I agree and the B1001 is a heavier build construction than the B751 and the additional width can't make that much difference to milling speed. Sounds like 23hp is ample power as it will be fairly rare milling anywhere near full width. I have a Panther on a 660 if the need arises. Panther is great for slabs but even with the intersect which I have, milling accurate dimensional timber is not easy. It would be luxury having a decent mill. Deciding where demand lies for particular forms of milled timber is something I am unsure of still ? Someone on here will now what the best sellers are hopefully.
  4. Yes I agree, but maybe not be that much difference - thankyou - still not sure on width. Some say the B1001 is a heavier build construction by I do not know. Thankyou.
  5. Thankyou for your reply. Looking on their Website - Not sure wether I need the larger 27hp model offered by Logosol by what people say. Also may be better to buy the 751 for accuracy by the feedback on here comparing it to the 1001. I have a Manitou rough terrain Forklift and 7.5T Hitachi Excavator with a 3 tonne Botex grab, so the handling is good. I am really not sure where the market demand lies and where best to promote the products. I was thinking Live edge Larch cladding, gate posts, Oak beams. I am not keen on specific custom orders but I may be wrong. Where to promote to avoid the time wasters is another question. Of course there is Ebay, Gumtree, Preloved, Facebook Marketplace. I can easily construct a Website if that is the way to go. Any advice would be great - I know how to market other products but not sawn timber. Thankyou.
  6. Nice timber and nice workshop - Both milled with the Logosol 751 ?
  7. Has anyone on here: 1 - Bought a Logosol 1001 23hp petrol Bandsaw Mill and 2 - Made any money milling larch cladding etc. with it. ? Any insights into how good the machine is and wether it is worth the investment would be most welcome. We get a lot of oversize timber delivered (hard and soft) at Firewood prices that is a pain to process into firewood and plenty of Larch and Douglas that is the ideal size for live edge cladding. I also need a lot of timber for building projects etc etc. myself. Thankyou for any replies in advance.

  9. Woah, quite a few options there thankyou. At least I have an idea what will work reasonably well on and off road. Tyres are quite subjective by all accounts !
  10. Old Weller Wheels - that's going back a bit. I will search for the Kumho, not come across them. Thankyou.
  11. The aging Ranger needs new tyres and with the trend of 6 months of relentless rain every year they need to be good. The M+S that are on there have been almost useless. I rarely travel more than 5 mile radius, so tyre road noise is irrelevant. I am hoping there will be a definitive answer and this is certainly the best pace for experienced advice. Thankyou in advance.
  12. Sounds perfect to me Steve - I will report back in due course 👌
  13. Maybe Spud has done these mods in the past ?
  14. Yes it is - the MS150 C and there is no torx screw - it is 100% one piece with nothing removable. Can I still mod this Steve ?
