I’ve been looking at those as I see them go up for sale somewhat regularly around here (in Mississippi… don’t know why).

I cut my own lumber and sometimes end up with 3 or 4 inch thick pieces that I can’t cut with a circular saw and are way too heavy to put on a tablesaw or pass through a bandsaw.

For now, I built a jig (a rail with a carrier) for my smaller chainsaw that I use to cut my slabs into manageable pieces.

Let us know how well the Bigfoot works. I just wasn’t sure it was going to have enough power to cut what I cut.
