What type of chainsaw mill

I am an avid timber framer and often have access to good wood. I have hand hewn timbers, but it takes a very long time to accomplish. I have been contemplating a chainsaw mill, but can't decide between an Alaskan sawmill with a slabbing rail, or a Logosol m8 with extensions. If the Alaskan will work fine, then I'll buy that. The logosol looks to make the process pretty easy. Thanks for any feedback.

I have an alaskan chainsaw mill and a set of rails that a friend welded to use as a guide. Works great, but its a slow and dirty process. It also takes a good size saw to mill anything sizable.
