You've got to love the smell of diesel smoke in the morning.
I don't know which is better - the smell of a wood smoke from a wood stove or diesel smoke. Whoa, how about a blend of both?
Then there's also the sound of a crackling wood fire vs. the rattle of a diesel engine. I manage to combine these when I pull a trailer of cord wood from up in our woods to stack next to our outdoor wood burner using my Cub 6284 diesel Sub Compact tractor on a frigid winter day. It don't get any better than that. BTW- I have to point out that the wife helps load and stack the wood. She really is a trooper, though I'll deny having said it if anyone tells her. She even helps out working on equipment when I need an extra pair of hands or eyes (it's hard for me to work up close while backing off far enough to focus on the close-up work any more).
