    11+ cords. I just tried out my new Fiskars splitter today and I'm really impressed with it! I thought the shorter handle might take some getting used to but didn't even notice it.

    Northwind, looks like you have some work ahead of you now, eh! Looks like a nice load there.

    btw, welcome to the forum. You no doubt are further west than where we lived; Gladstone area.

    Did the grapple operator lay out logs lengthwise to stack the others on?

    Got it all stacked a few days ago. Ended up with a little over 11 cords. 10 stacked by the house and another cord on pallet's.

    Northwind, How could you mix those differenct color stakes. Unless they are color coded for seasoning or species, you need to take corrective action!

    Looking good. Those fence posts are great. Until you have to get one out of the ground.

    How much time would it take to cut the long ones (to the appropriate size) and apply the appropriate paint!

    I'll be going to the store tomorrow for hacksaw blades, paint and beer! Shouldn't take more than a 30 pack...

    Throw a chain around them and pull them out with the loader bucket. A splitter in vertical mode would probably do the trick as well.

    I did split the last 4 cords with a splitter just to speed things up. Almost felt like I was cheating.
