Just had eight cord dropped in the yard in 8' length's that my BIL and me share, I bought it for 550.00 a good deal unless you get it for nothing. Any way we own a rapid fire splitter from D&R and my 64 landlord and cart provide the wood moving to our racks. Although we have had little use for it, its good to be prepared for that morning when its 6 degrees. So tomorrow we begin breaking it down chain saw splitter and lots of GT seat time. We also have several cords ready to burn. IMG_0875.JPG


I often wondered, how do you like that splitter? Does it handle logs with lots of knots? How big of a diameter will it handle?

I hauled a dead rabbit in the bucket, down to the swamp. Highly efficient I'd say!

IT does not like logs with lots of knots in it, most don't, its speed is the thing it splits as fast as you can work. Our setup with the tables works great eliminating the constant bending over picking up dropped logs.

Since it was about 70 here Sunday I mowed the yard and used the loader to put some leftover mulch down.

I hooked up my yard trailer to the jd420 and raked up leaves then dumped them at the back of the garden. took a couple of days to do and I enjoyed the seat time. Had good weather here last week for it.

No snow. Too wet to do any work. I go out to the garage and sit on them. Sometimes I run the engines a bit. Other times I just make Vroom vroom sounds...

The closest we got to snow was a inch of ice, just got over a inch of rain on Sunday and it's so muddy I can't get off the cement.

 

Although before the rain, I have been getting a lot of seat time in on my Kubota L2000 when we were getting ready to build the high tunnel.

No seat time but did do a little wiring on the WH 1267. The old girl should be ready for snow work now. Hoping we get some and well maybe hoping we don't.

If we're counting 'pain in the seat' time, someone is clocking OT.

Not mentioning names..... ^
