    Yea, I'm bad... had to go get some CL wood after work, get a NEW gas can, and some fuel for the saw, and NOW I am ready for action..... but my 2 yr old is sleeping! :(

    I am going to run it tomorrow night, and as much as possible this weekend!!

    Be nice to get wood cut to the length that best fits your stove.
    I've cut 4-8" gnarlies, knots & crotches out of logs to avoid having rounds that won't split well.
    Burn them as misfits/ uglies or in the fire pit.

    Let the fun begin :)

    Here's one me and an 880 puck on! (It was about 100 degrees out) 55 inch red oak. :eek: oak10.jpg

    And the guy on that 44 inch red puck four times. He made the mistake of drinking goldschlager the night before. We now call him Goldie Slacker!

    The guy who gave me those two big ash has a 55" oak he wants me to tackle this summer. I'm trying to put him off till Halloween. I hate bees and heat.

    I can tell you this 55 inch oak is going no where. My guy was quoted 3500.00 to get ride of it. We filled two trailers with 9 rounds. So Take your time big saws are hard to run in 90+ heat. Oh, and if you do don't let them call you RALF! ;lol

    Haha... shoot for Halloween, Donnie, and I'll let you run the 064! This one is back in the woods real deep, will have to come out one or two rounds at a time, on the back of the Ford 3000.

    Dexterday is a class act, all the way. Sure, he's a TAD extreme when it comes to neatness and cleanliness, but that's a hell of a lot better than being a lazy a$$ that doesn't do a thing! I'd never hesitated to buy something off of him, and I'd invite him to my home anytime.....

    Looking forward to meeting him hopefully this summer......

    Anyway, back to the original post.....LET'S GET SOME EFFIN' CHIPS FLYING FROM THAT SAW, D0NNIE!!.....::-)
