Please ensure that the mill site is easily accessible to the vehicle and mill.
The ground should be firm enough to support mill and vehicle and reasonably dry.
At thirty feet long and about five feet wide, an area that is 20 by 50 feet is usually enough room. In preparation for milling, logs should be lined up in a parallel fashion to the sawmill, and a tractor or skid steer is a definite asset but not a must. I always bring my own cant hook and chainsaw but it is always nice if the log owner also brings those to keep on hand. I should be able to easily pull in and turn around with the truck and mill and bring the mill parallel to the logs prepared for sawing.
The milling capacity for my specific mill is, logs up to 20ft long and 26 inches in diameter. The sawmill bed and its log supports allows me to only do a minimum of an 8ft log.
As a result of milling there will be three different things produced in total; boards being the main, then slash (bark, trimmings and slab wood) and a great deal of sawdust.
It is always helpful if the customer can provide a friend or two on the day that the logs are to be milled. It is good to have extra hands and muscles, because if the lumber is green it is very heavy and needs to be stacked and stickered as soon as possible to avoid decay and degradation. When sawing has been done on each board, the board should be swept off clear of any residual sawdust (especially if it is wet) in order to prevent moulding and staining of lumber in the stack
