I have a couple of comments. Pardon me if they sound a little negative. First, urban and suburban trees are notorious for being full of metal. Even if the big band saw will slice through it without damage, a normal table or band saw would not. Second, why buy a generator to power a motor to power a saw when you can power the saw directly from the utility? Alternatively, you could use the engine to power the mill directly and eliminate the enormous inefficiency of converting mechanical energy to electrical energy and then from electrical energy back to mechanical energy again. Can you generate power at a lower pollution level than the power company? I have some doubts about that.
