    I’m pretty sure that I have, but wasn’t Positive, so I wasn’t going to mention 9 axles, but I have seen plenty of 8 axle set ups The 9 axle Marston trucks have a self steering drop axle in the middle of the trailer, IIRC Doug

    Thanks SlowP and Northman, a truck with a bunk, and a reach trailer is what I suspected you meant, I didn’t know if axle count or configuration factored into it. I have seen PNW Log Trucks up to 8 axles I don’t see too many loaded above the stakes, so mounded above would be easier to roll a log...

    SlowP, and Northman what are you calling a “PNW Log Truck”? Is it a Standard 5 axle (Steer, Tandem Drive, Tandem Trailer) with a reach trailer? While I have never driven a LOG truck, I have been a truck driver for almost 32 years The 70’s era trucks Northman mentioned, I remember as a...

    Women and Dogs

    Many women just don't understand how to train or command a dog. The absolute worst breed that I have seen for manners and behavior are Pugs, Simply Terrible little Beasts, My Wife had 2 when we Married, her Sister had 2 a Good Friend of mine had one, and I have been around countless others, I...

    No chainsaw protective jackets; use a motorcycle safety jacket?

    Husqvarna offers a jacket that matches their chaps, BUT the description doesn’t specify IF they offer similar protection to that of the chaps. If the jacket offered similar protection, I would be interested, if not, Not so much Doug :cheers:

    Ms661 vs ms880 on 36”mill

    From Granberg’s website: Also includes 50” hardened steel bar (G743-3) with .063 gauge, one loop of .404 .063 chain at 138 links (G730-3 “48” adds a foot and weight “ so a 50” Bar, helper handle and Aux Oiler increases “Portability”???? Your Mill, Your Money, Your Choices I don’t...

    Ms661 vs ms880 on 36”mill

    When I thought about it, I wondered if the helper handle was what you were after, but on a 36" bar, I just don't see the need for it. An Aux Oiler is Nice, but again, on a 36", it shouldn't be needed with either a 661 or 880. You didn't want a 48" set up, because it would reduce portability...

    Trouble finding .063 milling chain to match 36" bar

    From Granberg's website: What is ripping chain and why do I need to use it? While there are many companies that sell chain for milling, no other company offers ripping chain that features our specific modifications to the top plate. Our process shaves off approximately half of the tooth...

    Trouble finding .063 milling chain to match 36" bar

    Not to the best of my knowledge, my understanding of "Ripping Chain" designed for milling, has narrow "Scoring Cutters" followed by "Clearing Cutters" actually very different from what I know. I have wanted to try a Loop of Ripping chain, to compare the difference in results, but so far I have...

    Ms661 vs ms880 on 36”mill

    If an 880/3120XP set up over 36" would cut down on Portability, I Have to Ask, WHY are you considering a Double Ended Bar??? I also have to ask, do you understand what a double ended bar IS, and what it's PURPOSE IS??? If a single 880/3120 is too much, why on Gods Green Earth would you want...

    Trouble finding .063 milling chain to match 36" bar

    I prefer the .404/.063 for milling, the .404 is a more robust chain, granted, it has a bit more Kerf, and will take a bit more Oompf from the saw, the .063 gauge will carry oil better, than .050, think the difference between a 1" water pipe and an 1.25" pipe. the bar groove does more than guide...

    Ms661 vs ms880 on 36”mill

    Regulate, how close to the capacity of a 36" Mill do you expect to be milling? Blue42 has a similar thread running, and yesterday, I Maxed out my 36" Granberg CSM, and measured it's Capacity, 36" is the the length of the mill's Rails, NOT it's capacity, with the End Brackets set to the very...

    Smallest setup to mill 32" log?

    Hi Blue42, what PITCH are you using, 3/8 or .404? I use .404/.063 for my milling, I just use Stihl Full Skip, and have been Happy with the results, I haven't tried a milling specific ripping chain yet, and so far, I like my results with the full skip. I am tempted to get a ripping chain and try...

    Hi Skeans, So far we're doing Okay,No Family or friends sick yet :) I'm still working, my dedicated account produces Polyurethane Foam, they haven't been notified to shut down yet, that I know of. Another of our accounts is a Big Communications Company, Cable, Internet, Cell services so I...

    Smallest setup to mill 32" log?

    Hi Skeans, Blue42 is trying to max out a 36" CSM and a 36" B&C may leave him a little short He had asked about the potential for kickback while milling, and you're right in most milling situations, Kickback is a rather minor concern. Even on my 3120XP, the 36" B&C Balances very Nicely, the 44"...

    Smallest setup to mill 32" log?

    Blue, if you are making Tables (I forget what your end use is) remember that there is a Top and a Bottom to tables, use the side with the screw holes for the bottom. Another option is to determine what the finished length needs to be for your project, then cut your logs to be milled enough...

    Smallest setup to mill 32" log?

    Blue, I also forgot to add, that as too milling being Safer? ANYTHING between you and the chain will add safety, so while you can still manage to hurt yourself, that Mill frame sure can't hurt, keeping you and a moving chain separated. The Number 1 cause of Kickback, is getting the "No Zone"...

    Smallest setup to mill 32" log?

    Blue, I just went out and Maxed out my 36" Granberg Mill, with the Bar Clamp Brackets set to the very end of the rails, I measured 33.5" between the inside faces of the bar clamps. I measured on one of my .404 Bars, I wouldn't clamp the sprocket end of the bar any closer than 2.5" from the end...
