    I hope he makes a million bucks before he gets too old to enjoy it. That's one smart guy and goes to show you that the older geneeration has a lot to offer us younger (40's) guys.

    It doesn't appear to pack it in very tight. I wonder how tight a log splitter's ram could pack it?

    The quantity of leaves I had to deal with each year when I lived in Northern Virginia would have made production of "leaf logs" a frantic 3-shift effort every fall to get them all processed before the snow came. I applaud the guy's ingenuity, but I question the practicality of this particular idea. Leaves are for mulch, wood's for burning. Rick

    A little tighter pack and time in a gasifier might make it a log haulers nightmare? NOT. But for the industrious every fall cities in my area are looking for places to take their leaves and every summer they are trying to get rid of their grass clippings.....
