    You can't ask for much more than that! Well, unless you can get someone else to haul brush and put the rounds in your truck/trailer... :cheese:

    Those are my favorite finds! Lots of barkless wood, no brush to haul, and I get to let the 3120xp eat! :coolsmile:

    Nice! I'll bet that's close to 3 cords in that log if it's a solid 45" around from end to end.

    That's a lot of cutting time!

    Sounds like good justification to buy that 880 or 3120XP! :coolsmile:

    ha ha ha some jack@ss brought this tree down and I knock on the door about a month ago he said that there friends was wood burner and was cutting it for that. I said when they get to that trunk and if they cant handle it I live around the corner where all the big piles of wood is at, last night he showed up and the rest is mine

    That's a very nice chunk of oak! Looks like white oak, or maybe bur oak? Some heavy duty splitting in that one!
