I agree with Jayrod, if the log is long enough to get the crotch and enough extra wood to make 4’ slabs and leave enough log to get at least an 8’ saw log. Or slab the entire log and see what you get. 2” slabs take fewer cuts through that tough wood than 1” cuts to square a cant and then cutting 1” boards.

Woodmizer also has great customer support, give them a call and ask about the hook angle, set and anything else that would get you more lumber per blade. But anything you get over 400 bft on hard woods like locust, mesquite, white oak, etc is more than I would expect.
