Just finished bucking and drawing 5 pickup load of rounds, hardwood. Paid $250. cash for the lot and figure it'll pile out around 8 face cords. I haven't cut for a couple of years and it sure did feel good getting back running the saw , but now as I pull out the maul, my lower back is beginning to talk to me... Think I may just rent a splitter, buy a box of beer and call my 2 brother-in-laws... I plan on buying/cutting another 8 truck loads, just not this week.
