I think it depends on your motor hp. I had a 3/4hp 14” Delta with riser and found it was underpowered for tall cuts if you do lots of them (slow). I ended up selling it and finding a saw with more hp to mill bigger logs with. What is the kit cost vs new saw cost, soon you may be upgrading the motor…
