That is an almost exact knockoff of the smallest Granberg. If you want to do one or two small projects and can really take your time it will work ok. You may get more use out of it in softwood but it is really not up to much more than that. The fact that it only has one clamp, oriented by the powerhead, allows the bar to flex and walk away or towards the carriage out at the tip. If you want to mill even one large log into slabs I suggest a mill with a clamp on both ends. This requires a longer bar, bigger saw, etc. I've milled around 100 logs, ranging from 10" to 30" diameter and from 30" to 10' long so I wouldn't say I'm an expert but have learned plenty from making mistakes.
