Some nice looking chunks in the picture. 👍We finally got the remainder of the hard Maple for my buddy with the new PE Vista. He hauled a load back home in his van yesterday, I stayed and sawed up the rest of the gnarly trunk. He went back today and got the last load.
As mentioned, we got him a couple of steel wedges so he'll be able to handle pretty much any stuff we get for him, even stuff that's tough for a maul alone. He also picked up the 6# Fiskars IsoCore to fill in between the cheap Fiskars ax and the 8# maul, and the 6# working great for him.
He's getting ahead on his stash, and should have three years' worth stacked and drying before too long. I've got a couple more small off-site scores he can pick up on his way home from work.

There's another dead hard Maple that you can see the bottom of, past the front of the van. Most of it is just a big, straight trunk, so it'd be easier than the last one.Some nice looking chunks in the picture. 👍
I'm in the same boat--the old goat boat. 😆I like the workout the axe gives me but I’m starting to get old and can’t be beating myself up anymore.
Yeah, that's what we did this year. The clay soil here is very erosive and we figured we'd just let the stuff that wants to grow, grow. Grass doesn't do well in our shady yard, except some zoysia that crept over from across the lane.I mowed at the beginning of May and then let everything grow, today I mowed the grass but left most of the wildflowers.
