Just couldn't wait for the weekend to cut up one of these puppies to find out what is in there.
Sweet rig.....Whatever it takes....
I want one of those!
One of the best tools I ever bought. I use it for everything.
I saw a nice, 5 foot wide or so skidsteer mount grapple bucket at the fair.
Tractor already has skidsteer mount plate, and hydros up front. It would make cutting tree length a snap.
i am so jealous. i think i need one of those. how much can it pick up in weight?
I thought about a tooth bar grapple to help clear the brush in the woods, but they are expensive.
Well...just great... Another toy I need...
This is the sub compact series. The loader can handle 600# and the backhoe can lift about 850.
This is the best part...
Now your just showin off... Its good to have some nice wood toys...
But I am old....
Your only as old as you feel...I am around 85 or so...
So you're old & spoiled
Sweet set up.
What attachments do you have?
Now back to the log, what kind was it?
Those toys will keep the saw sharp and save the back. .
Nice setup there.
How much wood do you reckon you can you process in a week, say?
What do you mean, "don't laugh"? Do you really think anyone with good sense would do it any other way if they had a machine like that?LOL The only thing better I could think of was a skid steer with grapple bucket. More maneuverable. So, yeah, what kind of log is it? Looks like a black birch.....
I have a york rake, ballast box, a racthet rake for the bucket, and some forks for pallets. I also have a 16" bucket for the backhoe, as well as the mechanical thumb. I started a thread here on the log. https://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/tree-id.91289/#post-1194619 I am sure I will pestering you folks alot because I am no good, or new should I say, at identifiying trees.
Nice!! I plan to one day have that attachment for my tractor. It was my response to my bro-in-law when he asked how much longer do I think I'll be able to cut/burn firewood. As long as I can get fuel for the tractor!
Baxbad2. Do u split h or v?
nice....i have a little JD 1026R with front end loader and mower but no back hoe. the bucket loader saves a bunch on a old tired back. plus, fill the bucket with wood and take it to the splitter or take the splits to the drying pile. i have the 27 ton splitter.....most of my splitting is done vertical. easier right now for me because i have some big rounds. matter of fact...i hear my little diesel calling now.
I call it smart. Work smarter, not harder!
I find it easier to use the splitter in the upright position. For those big rounds.
I'm 143 in the morning but i get down to 72 or 73 in the afternoon, some weekends if I'm lucky i will even feel in my 40's
