    For more on wood powered vehicles, trucks, tractors etc. try www.farmshow.com. Their farm news has at least one vehicle per issue, all home made in the good old US of A. Farmers rule.

    I didn't notice any wood storage on those vehicles!

    They look like chip gasifiers to me, Craig. Or maybe pellets. I'm guessing that's what's in those big stainless steel tanks.

    How about a wood-fired skidder? Never run out of fuel.

    That would be good with me! If fuel prices keep going up I am going to consider a hay & oat powered skidder.

    I had one of those El Caminos too. Wonder how much wood it "burns"?

    I recently bought their back issue CD. Lots of cool stuff in it if that's your cup of tea. There's also quite a bit of things related to wood burning, repowering tractors, farmer inventions, etc.
