    We managed 2.5 cords cut, split, loaded today. Tough day, logs frozen together, no traction, took an hour just to skid down 5 logs. Actually found a nice black locust that split like a dream, among more ash, red oak, and hard maple.

    I love splitting ash that is about that size. You can make a lot of splits in a little bit of time.

    I left the 372 at home so buddy can use his new 455. Splitter is new. I've only run about 20 cords through it, mostly helping others. ;) many splits from those rounds!

    Nice work! That's gonna make for a cozy winter in a couple of years. Some nice toys as well. Some day, when I'm a big boy, I'll have hydraulics too:cool:

    You know you are showing the tendencies of becoming a "wood snob".
    Selecting the primo wood types & only bucking up the nice logs ;)

    Gonna be tough in a few years when you have to go back to what most of us have to do;
    "Take what we can get" LOL
    Lots of jealousy coming at you from Alaska. LOL :)

    Nice score, (scores).
    Must feel like a "Kid in a candy store :)

    It's a good feeling. That's what I told the wife.... we can just get oak from now on. I really enjoy working the saw, running the splitter, helping family and friend's get ahead. My friend and I have split so much wood we can actually eyeball the sweet spot in a round and run the wedge in about an inch to split the whole thing. Cuts waaayyy back on cycle time. Here's my friend's house, 3 years ahead....

    That looks like a lot of fun WellSeasoned nice large rounds. Those size logs are hard to come buy in my area we are farmed out pretty good.

    Just about. My buddy will stack it to leave enough room to go out his back fence and so his dog has room to take a dump
