Hi this is my first new thread post.
My client wants a demolished two bedroom house cut into firewood.
In the past I would just salvage the good stuff and have a sweet bonfire!
I am bummed because chainsaws don't seem to be the best tool for this job.Damn nails,nails dammit
They like recycling or some stubborn reason won't let me set it ablaze except for their fireplace.
My concern is #1 this is time consuming 2 hours of cutting and the truck is half full.If it were logs i'd have it full by then.
#2 use a sawzall or circular saw its mostly 8-10ft 2x4s Ireally want touse my chainsaw but sawzall blades are only a couple dollars
Ive been using wood/metal blades havent tried the other options,whats the fastest way?#3 is this a waste of time? The are paying hourly and asking me to do it.
# 4 The stuff is in a heap ,im wrestling it out of a pile.Im trying to save time leaving the nails in but if I took them out first then maybe I could stack it up,then use my chainsaw?
#5The vibrations from the sawzall is taking a toll on my nerves,maybe need to make a sawhorse type device to hold the lumber securely
Anyone had to do this before? Is this within reason,the wood isnt all that great except what was the interior walls etc.
I turn down work all the time but the HO has a nice tree supply perfect to get my chainsawing fix so I have to do this to keep them happy.
All commennts and suggestions welcome. Does anyone prefer the way 2x4s burn etc. Use it only for kindling ,just pound down the nails and make nice stacks.
