    Scrounging firewood

    Ok I have found another oak fall, it still has leaves on it and they are dried up. Must have fell awhile back as it is spring here and no leaves have grown. Anyway, I have been calling these bur oak, which is in the white oak family. Does that sound and look right? Sent from my iPhone using...

    I feel you James, I’m at work also. I am an electrical tech at a Kellogg’s food plant. We are essential workers also due to the food supply can’t stop. Anyway, keep up the hard work, stay safe, and remember the important things in life. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How long do you dry your firewood before burning?

    That’s how I burned this past winter. I also cut enough extra that is still stacked and drying, that will get burned this next winter. Right now I am splitting wood for 2 years down the road but it takes up a lot of space, you have to get creative. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Started filling the dog shed with wood as I am out of room to stack any more. This is Oak and Hickory for 2 years from now, hopefully. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How much have you burned so far?

    I think I finished up at 3 cords. Probably didn’t need to burn that much but we are spoiled by the nice warm temps inside, on my days off I run around in a Tee shirt. Couldn’t afford to do that by using electric heat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pretty sure that’s hickory, or at least it looks like a species here in KY. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yep, I hope it is as reliable as the other Honda’s I’ve had. Gonna put that baby to use, been bringing home wood with a 2wheel trx300, you talk about inefficiency. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What additions are you making to your 2020 firewooding arsenal?

    No doubt that has a nice genset attached to that Kubota. If the lights aren’t needed it could be rewired for service voltage probably. How many Watts?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Scrounging firewood

    What did you use for a base Jeff? I ask because I built one last year and it worked well except for the bottom layer which I stacked directly on the gravels. I just purchased a Gransfors Bruk hatchet and the booklet that came with it showed using branches in a cross cross pattern to allow air...

    Nice old #8! That’s what I use for heat and it’s 36 years old. Anyway a family friend of mine was boiling down some Maple syrup a few days ago, 45 gallon sap to get 1 gallon syrup. No wonder it is so expensive! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Recommendations for easier carrying of rounds/splits.

    Maybe you could take a grinder and remove some material away from just behind the tip to make it like a barb so it will stay in the wood better. Nice use of a railroad spike! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Scrounging firewood

    Thanks so much. I have a rebuild kit that has the piston included with new clutches and lots of other seals. So with two tranny’s and the kit hopefully I have enough to make a working unit. A new filter, fluid and torque converter will be installed. I can swing all this for around $500 if I do...

    Scrounging firewood

    The 4L60e in my 98 blazer is slipping in 1/2 and reverse when under a good load. I am told that the sun gear is stripped on the basket. Does that sound legit? I bought a donor tranny and a rebuild kit to build in my spare time as I am still using the blazer as a work truck. May end up paying...

    What additions are you making to your 2020 firewooding arsenal?

    Wanting to add something to bring in the wood rounds from up in the mountains. This seems to have a descent size bed, maybe could add a small trailer. We will have to see what Mama Bear thinks, she sue does enjoy the warmth of the wood stove so I have that going for me. Sent from my iPhone...

    Scrounging firewood

    You won’t be disappointed, no joke I use mine with an 18” bar in hardwood felling bucking noodling limbing. It’s my 1 saw plan. Still hard to believe how much power this 50cc has. I guess I could use a 461, but the 261 really does all I have asked of it and with ease. If it cut any faster it...
