    firewood tractors

    4x14 with a large ro. 1700 taps all buckets. Did 400 gallons of syrup last year. Best year was 900 in 2013. We have a room that's 16x20 on the end of the sugar house. With that filled to the rafters I figured there's enough there for 600 gallons with the ro.

    firewood tractors

    If were splitting for the sugar house, the 3 foot long stuff we fill the skidsteer bucket and use that cause of a hill and tight quarters, firewood goes right into the one ton dump. That 3 point splitter made things easier on the back forsure.

    Some new equipment

    Iv had the 2n sense mid spring, it's been great other then I had to have the Hydraulics gone over, one of the rides under the seat was bent. And I had about $400 in a new battery starter and rewiring the whole ignition. Both the neighbors have 8ns, the position controls nice on them, but they...

    Some new equipment

    Well between farming and running my masonry business I haven't been on here much this year. So I though I'd show off the new equipment I got. Frist the old Kubota died so now we got a 46 ford 2n. And she will drag a darn good size log. Then the truck just wasn't cutting it any more so I found me...

    Ms290 why do so many hate it?

    My father inlaw had a 029. Got stolen and went right out and got another 029. He hasn't cut wood in 3 years sense I cut everything for him. Gave me all his saws (024, 019t, hsuky 455, husky 61) except the 029, 039, and he bought a nice 460 and a 3 foot bar that he made 2 cuts with in a year...

    Husky 61 chainbrake

    Well I ended up taking that screw out. It was maxed out in the treads. Chain brake still works so I guess my question is what's the point of this?

    Husky 61 chainbrake

    My father inlaw gave me a husky 61 sense I cut his wood for the last 3 years for him. It runs great but when cutting the chain brake will engage in almost every cut. Is there any adjustment to the chain brake? He swore there was a way to. Or is there any issue I'm missing? And I saw somewhere...

    firewood tractors

    Was giving a set of log tongs so I borrowed a draw bar from the neighbor and came up with this. Only log in had laying around was this old pine log. Moved it fine. Gunna see how it dose in the woods if it ever drys up or freezes. Ideally I'd use my old ac model c but she ain't running currently.

    Bad day

    Well Saturday we got scaffold built. Ripped the chimny down 8 feet. 4 flue liners cracked. Got down to good chimny. Cleaned the hell out of the rest including a good blocked section. Rebuilt it Christmas day. Still have to flash it and pour a crown. That will be Tuesday. Rain today and have some...

    Bad day

    22, been married 2 times, got a 5 year old son I never have met and 100 grand in debt and flat broke. Living the American dream right? From the reading on the thermal gun and what I can tell in the chimny only the top 8 feet burned. The rest is still coverd in creosote. So I will replace the...

    Bad day

    Well didn't take any pictures of inside the flue but from the fire down its a mess. Won't be running the furnace anymore. Gunna have to give it a he'll of a cleaning between the creosote and all the Chem bombs they dropped in it. I will be building a second masonry chimny this summer on the...

    Bad day

    Ideally that would be what is done but the chimny is 40 feet though the center of my house. The pipe is the only option there other then a liner. Being on unemployment and selling fire wood + putting 4 grand into my wife's jeep to basically rebuild it killed any funds I had not that there's much...

    Bad day

    Well being that my father inlaw is good buddys with the whole fire department they were all having some good laughs well they put the fire out. Being a mason I understand that the chimny should contain the fire. The reason for rebuilding into the attic is I had a few joins leaking smoke out so...

    Bad day

    About a month ago. Only burned 2 truck loads and about 20 gallons of diesel sense then. I think the issue is I didn't run the rods up high enough when I cleaned. The roof being a Manchester I cleaned it from the clean out in the basement.

    Bad day

    Went to start a fire in the burner and dozed off after work. Woke up to the burner at about 700 and the pipe at 900. After shutting down and about an hour later I ended up calling the fire department when flames were about 2 foot out of my 30 foot brick chimny in the center of the house. Well...
