Loon your thumbs will be very sore after a day of splitting with that thing lol..
I couldnt get the hang of it today But this thing works great
Terry that is cool! Now you need to practice! Come here I have a nice pile of red oak you can play with
If me and Buddy leave right now Ray we should be at your house in about 2014
Very cool machine for sure!
Had a very nice overnite burn '9hrs' and will be splitting some more fillers today..
I have a large amount of Locust that is nice and dry but wondering if it is kind of a waste to use as fillers?
What does everyone else use?
Nothing wrong with locust fillers or 9 hr. burns.
I love the pics. The one of the woods looks like my backyard, although I've got a mix of pine too.
Nothing like free energy!
I want one of those for my backyard
The tractor is sitting over in the wood pile right now hippie..Blown front tire
Going to see today how the Locust lasts in the stove? had room for one little Ash filler
That looks like a load of prime wood Loon! I bet you get a good 10 hrs. from that load.. The trick is to get the wood charred and get the air all the way down while maintaining a top down secondary burn..
Will do Ray
Just came in the house and boy-oh-boy Locust smoke sure has a stink all its own
Gonna give it another 10/15 minutes before the shutdown..
The secondary is running well right now so wont touch it till tonight..Hopefully
Yes, unsplit rounds can hold moisture inside for quite a while. Next year they should burn better.
That's really cool, thanks for posting. I like how he can use the splitter as a grabber in addition to splitting. It makes splitting look like child's play.
Yep, locust has stinky smoke, but a beautiful blue flame once it gets going. It puts out a lot of heat too. That wood is dense!
Its fun to work bg, just gonna take me a little time to the hang of it
Got the stink eye from Mrs loon after 7 1/2 hours Ray
Had to throw in a couple smalls to get the house back in action..
Everything is pulled to the front and will reload for the night in a bit
ut-oh! That can't be good.
Holy crap, that thing is sweet!
She's a country gal hippie
Had a good burn today for sure and just trying different woods
Lets see if this comes out alright?
Over at the farm getting some 14inch dead Elm for a try at the EW burn in the T5 tonite..
And me and Emma were doing great and had a fun day for sure
"BUT" was getting the wood ready to throw in the stove and dropped that first one right on my little toe
Sitting here at the pute and wondering if its worth going to the hospital? as i am thinking theres not alot they can do?
Gotta love cutting wood!
Ouch that had to hurt! You better call a toe truck!
Great pics too!
I try to wear steel toe boots when working with firewood cuz that hurts!
Had my safety stuff on all day.. Got home cold and took it all off..Friggen slippers! Mrs loon just rolled her eyes again Ray
The only safety gear I use is steel toe boots, gloves and sometimes safety glasses..
Gonna let todays burn get to small ashes and try out the EW in awhile ray Savage is right with the dead tree's only dry up halfway.. Will split the lower half's up and use em next year
