    Nice set up!

    Went to the JAPA website japa.fi watched the video. Very nice.
    How many Euro?

    .


    I haven't started yet.
    There is still 2-3 feet of snow where I plan on cutting.
    Then mud to dry out.
    It will be May before anything happens.

    Nice equipment, nice wood, nice rolling countryside looks like your neck of the woods has it all. My Great Grand Ma and Pa Bergquist came from your area.
    No wonder I live in the hills over here and enjoy burning birch so much, it's only instinctive.
    What sort of equipment do you use to drag the logs outta the bush before using that forwarder, tractor or skidder?

    Inferno we don't use something to drag the wood out,The tractor is 4wd and the carriage has power to so they ride in to the forest .
    The carriage have a wire that we can use,

    Backwoods Savage i like your setup.I want to have an ATV but they are so expensive here.
    A new Polaris is 12 000 USD >:-(

    This past Saturday I just atarted bucking the stuff that got knocked down in December's ice storm. Now I need to move it to the processing area, split it, stack it, repeat the process till I'm done. I plan on spending a couple hours every weekend through mid to late May and hopefully be done with it. I'm aiming high for 10 cords cut, split and stacked which may giv eme as much as two full winters of heat...I've been burning around 6-7 cords but grasshopper that I am alot of my wood has been somewhat green and sizzling so I bet if I get it all seasoned properly I get it down to 4-5 cords used and considerably more heat in the house.
