    Started hauling out the 400 give or take rounds of locust we cut the last two weekends this is work,have to hack your way in ,then ya gotta deal with trees like cherry that get in your way and cut them and haul them out.I figure it'll take the rest of the week to get everything out.Then I'm going to split all of it and stack no need to stack any more rounds I've got plenty. Here are the pics,the Suzuki 400 is an absolute beast,I'm loading the yota a little lighter than usual cuz I'm only hauling a quarter mile at most.Here are a few pics. Saturday work 001.jpg The big pile is a load of oak and black birch and a few poplars that I'm just going to let sit where it's at for a year or two.Right now my plan was to get about 15 cords of locust I'm there easily.

    Pretty well actually,wish it was a little larger but it gets the job done and maneuvers well in tight spots.
