    So, I'm out cutting up my latest grapple load of wood, and my neighbor comes over and offers to let me use his log splitter. In fact, he even offers to help. Since I haven't bought my splitter yet, I said sure.

    He helped me this morning from about 10:30-12:30 or so, and then let me keep the splitter and me and my brother-in-law worked for another 4 hours or so. Total time put in was about 6-6.5 hours, 2 people working that whole time...

    We got quite a bit done. The first picture is what the pile looked like about 2 weeks ago before I started cutting it up. The second picture is what we split today - note that none of the wood was split previous to this morning.

    And now it's pizza time!

    Nice days work. I'll be cutting some in Oct to make more room for seasoning wood and renting a splitter for sure!

    Good work! Looks like an honest days worth of work. Pictures are always tough(hard to judge depth of the pile) but I'm gonna say 3 cords give or take a bit. :)

    Yup, I'm guessing about 3 cords give or take as well. I shall find out in the next day or two after I stack it. ;-)

    I'm betting you are tired but feel great! There is something about working like that which makes a man feel good.

    Nothing like a nice wood pile to give you that feeling of a job well done .... and maybe a few sore muscles the next day to remind you.

    The neighbor gets pizza and whole bunch of that wood. ;-)

    He has a small stove so we split a bunch small for him.

    Sounds like the deal I have with a buddy (also a landscaper, slow in the fall/winter) Every day he helps me cut & split we fill to the rail his toyota pickup with wood. Hes got a smaller stove and house so it suits his needs fine.
