    Went about 100 yards back to finish a down dead of an unknown species for about an hour today. Heres the results: about 13 19" rounds ready to be split after lunch. While I do that, I'll be thinking on the husky 22 ton at tsc on sale for $949.00 :shut: - I told myself next year

    I don't know what kind of wood that is but it looks like it may pop apart pretty easily...
    I've got a power splitter but with this easy-splittin' Cherry, White Ash, straight hard Maple and BL, I'd just as soon split it with the ax. More fun and less noisy. :)

    That's what I guessed when I saw the splits in the wagon.

    Yep looks like Green Ash, that stuff is great to burn, so far the Summit has liked big pieces of Green Ash the best.

    Backwoods, that is some good wood. You also have a trailer that is similar to one of ours. I think we bought ours in 1980 and it is still going but we've had to fix it a few times. I don't use it much any more so a neighbor is using it to haul his wood right now.

    Yes, I finally got one. Saw it on craps list,ooops, I mean craigslist (stupid swype on my phone) got it for 40 bucks. In perfect shape except for alittle rust. Beats strapping wood on the racks.

    And it works pretty good for hauling dirt too.
