Woodmizer LT 40 HDG35
« on: November 21, 2018, 08:10:41 PM »
Selling my 2014 Woodmizer LT 40 HDG35 sawmill.  550 hours, in good condition.  I will be uploading a you-tube video this weekend, and will include 10 new 7 degree turbo double hard blades, and an assortment of 20 blades that have been resharpened.  Selling due to health issues.  Will let it go for 22k, it sells new as is for 32k.  I'm willing to spend a full day training anyone who is a serious buyer, but the mill is being sold "As Is" for obvious reasons.  I've taken good care of the mill, kept is under a shed, and this mill is ready to saw.  Any questions, just pm me for more details. 

Thanks, Joe

Sorry to hear of your health issue that is causing you to sell.  Hope you can recover your health.

Damn health.  It's one thing that's been taking good people and hard workers out of the equation since the beginning of time.

I wish you well, in all things.

Thanks again.  I've had three back surgeries over the years (laminectomies over 6 vertebrae), and now it seems they may have to do something with my neck.  I love to saw and work with wood, but the problem getting help, is just too much.  I've been taking pain killers off and on the past 20 years, and now my liver is showing the wear and tear.  I absolutely hate the thought of surgery, but somethings got to give! :P  Cold, damp weather just kills me.  It's no fun getting old, and worse when you have to work alone...
I've been an electrician most of my life, and have taught electrical courses in High School and College, but when you're 60 and broken up, no one will hire you.  Life's always been a challenge, and when I get pissed about it, I always think of my uncle who was a Drill Sergeant in WW2.  He used to always say, "Fuck'em and feed'em beans!"  It used to make me laugh, and having tough old bastards around when you're young, is a good life lesson.  I feel sorry for people who punk out, and I have no intention of being one of those.  I'll probably scale back to a smaller mill, and just do what I can do for myself.  "Fuck'em and feed'em beans", I guess... ;)

Good attitude and a funny quote, for sure.

I can relate, and I do understand, about your health troubles.  It sucks.

If you down size you will be looking at a non hydraulic mill which will be harder on you. 
As long as your mill is paid for why not keep it (unless you need the money from it) as then you have one that while more than you may need at least will make it easier on your back?

I just can't justify leaving 20k to rust under the shed.  A small mill hopefully can be had for 4-5 k, and if I can get some occasional help, along with my tractor/loader, I can at least smell some sawdust once in a while.   :-[  It looks like I'll have to have a surgery on my neck in a couple of months, and I'm not sure if I will be able to even upkeep my farm afterwards.  Owning a farm, trying to make a buck is hard enough on a healthy man. For a cripple, it's practically torture.
 If someone else can put the mill to work and make a buck, so much the better, and I'll need the money difference to keep bills paid while I'm not working.  If I make a good recovery and get back on my feet again, then who knows?  LT 40 super???  I might survive the surgery, and end up getting killed by my wife!   :o  But what a way to go!!

my mil is a kasco saw2B I bought new in 2004  electric up& down ,electric feed ,manual load & turn .it is wonderful but torcher  on my back . I have been in the middle of sawing logs before & my back give out and might be for 5 days before  able to get back to the mill which is not good on the lumbar or log. I had back surgery this summer and knee surgery last monday and previous heart episodes my mill sat for quite some time course I can't wait to get back to it.and  will again, if it would've been a hydraulic mill i would have enjoyed it lot more. manuel mill is definitely a young man's game.
