    Ya, looks like a fun work day. I still wish I could have been there.

    Also looks like you will beat the storm. Looks like some serious snow and blowing taking aim at us Jay. Not sure what your area is expecting.

    First of all, a big thanks goes out to SmokinJay for putting this thing together. It was a great time. Everyone left w/ all the wood they could haul. When we first pulled up, Smokin gets the 880 out to cut down a fencepost so I knew it was going to be fun at that point. Unfortunately, no pics of that :(

    Nothing like a little overkill!

    MMAUL, but not as bad as it looks did not do anything to the splitter. He was not off by much thats a big hill there and the 4x4 had no chance of making it, so we where shooting right for it. Really come down to me I gave him the thumbs up..............

    Man I wish I could have brought the Bobcat over and a trailer, we could have loaded a big load of log lengths in the dump and trailer. Bobcat makes for some very fast logging if it's open like that. 1.5 hour drive for me I think.

    Didn't get the 2nd splitter(that was the deal)! Wasn't room for it either.lol We had to pull one truck out of the snow. Very tough ground to work on, snow didn't help one bit. We where force to fell everything on that path up the hill. Needed my JD and run small loads up that step snowy hill but that didn't work out. Still got a good day 4 hours and we where pulling out. Very heavy wood and not sure what was heavier the hedge or the locust.
