    Wow- nice stacks, rdust. Beautiful. Maybe if you put in a few more courses, you could call it a maze or a labyrinth and charge admission. :p

    Dennis got you on the right path for sure.

    Thanks but they're far from beautiful! Dennis is a huge motivator for me as he's done for many others I'm sure! That's a picture from last years stacks. Here's a current shot I just took this evening. 3 of the cords are from last year, the 2 in the middle, 1/3 cord on the second row from the left and 2/3 cord on the second row from the right. The ends from last year are a little snaky but they'll hold! :lol:

    OK, back to our regularly scheduled program, sorry for the hijack!

    Because I do not have to go on any maintained roads and the wood starts less than half a mile from my house I am able to get away with a small tractor and trailer.

    Eventually I will get my old quad running again for tighter quarters but in most cases the tractor is fine.

    Hi Dave,
    I have seen that attachment before, I am sure it costs more than my Skid Steer, so I think for now I will be happy with cutting and splitting myself. It is really cool though.

    Thought you'd have come across it! These machines are really in the realms of the professionals. I'm still a 'all by hand' guy!

    Here's a picture of the dodge from this morning. also my JD lawn tractor and dump wagon (notice the new tires). I'll have to see if I have a picture of my trailer floating around somewhere, i just put a new deck on it last spring, so it looks spiffy.

    Here are a few of the haulers I use to get the wood from the farm to my house in town.

    First one I mentioned in another post is a 88 W350 with a flatbed dump. The second pic is my 1976 Dodge W200 club cab that has a dump box and the 12' aluminum trailer that I load heavy rounds or whatever is needed on. The Kubota 4wd tractor in the bed of the truck comes in handy for hauling an old solid axle trailer I rebuilt out in the woods. I don't have a pic of that trailer as I keep that out at the farm. It is nice because the trucks can't get down some of the narrow trails. The trailer will fill the flatbed truck in two loads.

    I finally figured out how to post pictures on here and thought I'd show you my wood hauler. It has 437,000 miles on it. We had it custom built in 1998.

    Here is my 77 dodge. I bought it for $100 from a local hospital when it "broke down." After replacing a plugged fuel line it has ran like a champ.

    I guess you don't use the Porsche too much for wood hauling?

    Why don't you guys stack the wood in the truck??

    Holds much more that way. I probably couldn't even fit 1/2 a cord in my truck if I just tossed it in. If I cord it I can fit a cord easy, 1.25 if I really pack it.

    Sure if may take an extra 30 mins, but doing less trips costs me less driving time and gas money.

    I have some pics from eariler this week but they are on my camera at home.

    please stop leaving all the pictures in your "quotes" It's super bothersome to have to scroll through a huge page that essentially consists of the same three pictures over and over only to read about 10 words of text. If we have anybody on dial-up they are probably about ready to scream!!
