I like that, a close tolerance for sure between the two blades. I thought the dog was about to get a bad headache for a moment while he was taking the bark off.  :(

I found this video

 

 

a while ago and book marked it. I get these vehicles traded in for little money and they typically run with little work. A few safety mods would need to be applied for me to use it though.

I seen this one & thought about posting it too. I would put a guard over the top half of the blade & wheels. If that thing came off that could make a guy pretty ugly.

A lot of thought and time went into making those sawmills.

Thanks for the videos, guys.

That would be pretty neat. You need some wood go out cut down a tree then cut it up the way you need it.

I wonder if a lt transaxle would be tough enough to do that? A running golf cart goes for $800+ around here but lts are a dime a dozen

My experience with club car carts that the rear ends aren't that tough.

I'd bet a lawn tractor rear end(of certain makes) is tougher.
