    This should help to explain why OWB's get a bumpy ride on this forum. Some nice well seasoned wood being fed into that OWB. Oh well at least no diapers & tires were harmed in the filming of this movie. ;hm

    Instead of going through all the time and trouble of building that thing. And then waiting an eternity for it to lift the log, wouldn't it have been quicker to just take a couple of swings at the log with a fiskars?

    OK, there's so many things that are wrong about that but also so many things that are pretty cool. That log lifter took some thinking and seems well made.

    That's also a huge OWB, I wonder what he's heating.

    If every log I had was that size, I would be in heaven. It's oak and I agree it didn't look to weather checked. I had a bunch of those that we set aside for next year, I have had them year and a half. building a super splitter for the skid steer to open those up. at least one split [hands free] . Bought in some standing dead ash last week and burned a couple pieces of that and was surprised how wet it was compared to last years stuff on the pile. the big burner likes dry wood like every other boiler but remember that the whole log goes in to burn chamber that operates at super high temps so it drives off moisture quickly unlike a down draft that holds the wood in a different temp zone. I know it's not perfect some lag on both ends but the middle is awesome. PS if I stood where that guy was in front of the BB you would be toast, this the only year I have not burned my eyebrows off.

    We can all say what we want...but I'm jealous. I wouldn't play with a log lifter like that, I could just stuff the log in with my tractor.

    12 years drying time to bring the moisture to 25%.

    I wonder how old/long he's been useing that OWB. The door did look to be cleaner than most I've seen, and the metal above the door wasn't all sooted up. I'm going with it's a pretty new unit.

    Yes, I'm having a hard time fathoming why that wasn't partly split before it went in. Thing that thick gotta be kinda moist inside, right?

    I guess it must be something like this, lol:

    The outside of that log would rot before the inside was dry.

    I bet those pieces are fun to wrestle around in the woods, to the pile, stack, and then get to that fancy contraption so you can load without having to split.

    I doubt that piece came off a stack. I'd sooner guess that it was bucked up and rolled into position with the skidder chain still attached to the butt end of the log.

    Yup, half the OWBs around here tend to have a handful of tree length logs sitting beside them with the tractor still chained to the twitch.

    No such thing as seasoning.
