I feel like a fool even asking, but.... I've got a year-old (at least) brush pile, roughly 20' in dia and maybe 10' high at the peak. It's a decent mix of hemlock, beech, pine, a little maple, with nothing over 3" dia. A lot of small stuff, and looks to be pretty dry. If I burn while there's 3" of snow on the ground, I don't need a permit. No problem there. Still have a couple feet in the woods. Last weekend I made a few attempts to get it lit, using some paper, cardboard, kindling from my stacks, but nothing seemed to work. I didn't use any accelerants, mainly because I used my last bit of diesel in the tractor. And I do know that gasoline is sort of a no-no. Does anyone have any tried-and-true methods for getting this thing rolling? I do have a few gallons of ATF from my last fluids change in the tractor, would this be helpful? Someone mentioned diesel? Thanks.
