    Firewood 003.jpg A farmer out by my dad is taking out a thicket, and we scored a bunch of wood!! There is at least this much at dad's and probably this much more to get yet.

    You will like the 660. I am running a 25" bar on it, but looking to buy a MS362 and run the 25" on it and put a 36" on the MS660. I am almost jealous that you have that much wood to cut and split. Almost. Going to get a truckload of cherry/locust in the morning that is already bucked and look at 3 other trees that are down over a buddy of mine. Thing is, I am already wondering where I am going to put it and whether it will lead to divorce. Hard to pass up the free stuff. Helped a buddy put in an insert in November and he just texted me tonight "Where do you get all your wood and how do you get it for free?" lol Thinking about writing back "Ever vigilant my friend. Ever vigilant."

    Just in case I didn't already say it, very nice score.

    My wife actually endorses it because of the money we save. Got a truckload of cherry and locust on Sunday and she was giddy about it. Without doing the math, I have about 12 cords stacked up and am about to go look at 3 downed trees. Her only issue was when I had wood in piles all around the house. Sadly, we will probably be back at that stage this spring. Oh well.
