To the OP, for reference, I am in Maine too and I have been paying $750-800 for 8 cord loads of mixed hardwood, which in my area is primarily oak and...
Yep, I don't really give a hoot about kinetic rotational mass inertia or any of that math stuff. All I know is I used an 8 .lb maul for years, bought...
Let us know the following and we can help:
How much wood do you need to cut per year?
What size and species of logs?
What is the budget?
Wow, I'd say you done great, although I don't know if I am more jealous of the saw or that nice piece of Ash!
Looks good to me!
Yep, thats what I use too, works great for kindling.
I had an MS180 with the quick chain adjust and did not like it at all.
Looks good, I like the idea of the removable sides for airflow in the warmer weather a lot. Looking forward to more updates as you progress.
Have you examined the teeth to see how severe the damage is? Based on your description of how brief the event was, I think you should be able to...
C'mon, a 150' oak in Connecticut? What are they feeding it, the same stuff Barry Bonds took?
Coonecticut's tallest trees:
I'd get as many good sp;its out of it as I could like you did, then I'd put it aside for outdoor fires in the firepit. I wouldn't stack it with my...
If a dealer told me not to worry about HP and worry about cc's, I'd find another dealer pronto.
Real nice, I scored a similar size red oak and it was hard getting the rounds in the truck, had to roll them up a ramp.
Yep, shagbark hickory, primo firewood, practically non-existent in my state :long:
Yeah, for some reason huskies are a lot more expensive in Canada than the US.
I'd also opt for the Huskee 22 ton from TSC at that price. If I absolutely had to but one from home depot, I'd buy the Ariens splitter, or better...
HittinSteel, we are probably talking about the same guy. If so, this is the "used" 371XP I got from him
I haven't run a 359 but hear it is a decent firewood saw. They had some carb issues and an issue with the intake boot on some models, buy I believe...
Huh?? Its rated 28 ton. Cost is $1699.
I use the same method except instead of the t-posts, I screw 2 x 4's to each pallet.
Ooopppss, I stand corrected, that is what I get for bein' too lazy to watch the whole thing.
That was my impression too, he is stumbling quite a bit, either drunk or them boots are 5 sizes too big.
True, plus they have a young buck running the SS clone and the guy running the hydraulic splitter looks like he is about 90.
Yep you have mental problems and I think I see a 372 in your future!! :)
Beats me, I was wondering the same thing, hopefully someone can explain or maybe it is a typo?
Awesome saw. I don't know if I am more jealous of the saw or the locust, probably the locust since I have one of them thar' saws and I don't have any...
Yep, never seen osage orange or red mulberry, but have seen black locust in Maiine, but mostly only in southern sections of the state. I was at my...
Nice score, grab it all while you can. You could always sell some of the overflow to buy more saws and stuff!
No, the OP said he would have to go on site and buck and remove. I'm with you, he ought to be able to find tree length delivered by a logger for a...
