    table only goes up to 22" diameter and formatting got a little sloppy in the conversion but...diameter is first column, trees per cord is second. so a 2 foot diameter tree is about a cord.

    I'd buy that...a 2 ft diameter cylinder 25' long is about 80 cu ft of solid wood. Should stack out close to a cord.

    Cool Loon

    Ya sure are moving the wood out. And it looks like you are doing a good job keeping the logs clean. Ya gotta love that Case! What hp is it? I have a 90 hp case w-14 loader and was supprised how much it struggles to pull something out from time to time.

    AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!


    it dropped perfectly behind the stump and as of right now, its still there...

    going back over to deal with it after i have a cold beer :cheese:

    between the chain not being long enough and having to cut a bunch of good trees to get it out i am better off lowering the stump...

    Billy its a 90 also ;-)

    looks easy in the picture but it isnt :shut: ;-P

    everything went fine, but i had no wiggle room with the tractor %-P
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    let me correct this...


    'everything' i did yesterday went wrong and i wont go into detail :cheese:

    the saw would only go 3/4 across the stump which must be 2 1/2 foot base and as i was trying to get it level with the fallen tree, the screw holding the brake snapped and its a borrowed saw as i am waiting for a part for mine :shut:

    will take it into town monday as it needs a special screw and also have to get the remaining part of the screw out.



    gonna take the 4 wheeler over this morning and take my time clearing a nice path out to the field...

    should be out by noonish :-/ :cheese:

    Now that's a nice view out the rear window. Do you ever pick the butt up with the 3 pt? I wouldn't even be able to budge anything close to that big without taking the weight of the lead edge with my little tractor.

    Get the chains good and sharp, you have some nice sugar maple to buck up. Looks like you had a good day for it. I never went back in today so it looks like that beech will have to wait until next week.
