    Gonna get it milled or is it fire wood?
    Either way, nice score. :)

    Double dipping (a money job) or
    your own property?

    That's a bit more than a "trim".

    I love cutting the big trees like that.....makes my side work of tree removal much more fun!
    But, with toys like you got there, that almost takes the fun (er, I mean work) out of it! Nice trees, nice toys there brother!

    Gotta love it when you load the splitter on the wood (not the wood on the splitter)!!

    It'd probably run a lot better if it was a Yuengling Lager tap handle.....just sayin'......:p

    Scotty - My favorite beer is Yuengling Lager. I went to the brewery in Pottsville Pa last year and got samples of all the beer. I just need to go back to their great gift shop for the beer tap handle

    Did you know that BUD stole the eagle from Yuengling who is the first USA brewery

    Been to the Pottsville plant myself, back when I was working in Harrisburg. And yes, Yuengling is my favorite beer as well (even though I have a gluten intolerance). Aren't those "right out of 'da vat" samples fantastic??

    You bet. I went in the cave where they use to keep beer cold before refrigeration was invented

    Nice work on that double splitter excavator - that's what I call 2-fistin' it!
    My first car had a Stroh's tap 4 on the floor after I somehow lost the ball that was there. Took it to Shippensburg and drank Y.lager by the gallon. You could literally get gallon milk jugs of lager from the bars for 5 bucks. Had a barmaid at Orkey's conned into giving me Bass and Guiness for the same price until the manager figured it out.:mad:
