    Have the big red xp for a little over 1 year now. Great saw mill. No problems with it. Definitely worth the cost.

    I bought the Big Red XP in May 2021, never having owned or used a mill before. However, YouTube videos are a great and easy learning tool. I’ve used the mill now for about 1500-2000 boars feet of cutting…. And I’m relatively impressed. The Honda is flawless. The mill frame is solid… although I did notice a tiny bit of “sag” in the middle and found it necessary to “eyeball” the length of the frame to ensure a flat travel plane.
    I haven’t encountered any problems at all as of yet, other than the learning curve that would be normal. For instance… I’ve been surprised how quickly blades can become dull. I find that in cutting Douglas Fir as I’m doing, about two hours of cutting is all
    I can count on. Otherwise, I’ll get wavy cuts.
    The mill itself is very well-built, and the Honda delivers plenty of power. If you ensure it has a solid footing, and you change blades frequently, you will love this machine. If I could change one design issue, I would raise the log supports 2”-3” above the frame so that forms from a loader could set a log down. Otherwise, I am very happy with my purchase.

    I have used mine for a year now.I am very happy with it,a very good low tech design,good common available parts,frame is extremely strong.Honda motor starts good ,is not loud,and is fuel efficient.When you pick it up at the dealer it is fully assembled which saves a ton of time. I really like the blade height adjustments and other blade adjustments. A very good well designed and quality manufactured machine. If something happened to this saw and I had to get another one I would get the same one and not even look at other kinds.
