The sawmill handles logs up to 3 feet or 36 inches around x 16.5 feet long - COOK SAW supplies the odd size bands . Blade pulleys run on the front axles taken off old 3/4 ton Dodge pickup the disk brake hub was machined down to fit the inside taper of a 25 inch cast iron 6 v belt pulley with all but two V's ground off for the saw blade -its made for 2 inch wide saw blades that are 17 feet 6 inches long but because of cost issues I use 1.5 inch wide bands - V bed so debris falls off from under log and added strength of a triangle to the cross beam -loader arms are the rear axles off same pickup -have not found a log yet it wouldn't lift -these used truck parts are hardened and tempered for maximum strength and cheap and easy to find almost everywhere in the world - junk cars and trucks we all have them . thanks for watching be safe.Thanks
