    I live out by Heath east of Columbus. Most of my wood comes from a golf course in the city. However if you have a trailer and want in on some shenanigans a co worker just bought a 2 acre lot outside of Lancaster and has been dropping ash trees and several others to clear for a house. We are free to take anything we want. Several ash still standing that need to come down. no clue on size. also have the go ahead to go to a friends great aunts farm they have 30-40 ashe trees they want dropped and done away with. Im very lucky to be able to get wood from the gold course however I'll let you know when the ground freezes and they get some down.

    I have friends in Pickerington, hope you like Mopars. We made it out to the Mopar Nationals one year and it was a blast. Was also during the State Fair. That was a blast too. It was amazing the difference from our County Fairs. First time I had corn on the cob grilled in the husk. I'd go back just for the corn. Welcome to the site.

    Photos from last week. Lots of frozen dirt. Rained yesterday, snow is gone, and back at it this morning. Dirt turned to mud of course but making better progress, and it is all Oak. Used the log arch on the bottom ones. Just too dirty. My own wood lot needs to dry out some, or freeze, before I get back to that. IMG_9905.jpg IMG_9904.jpg

    I roll them to the splitter which has a hydraulic lift up to about waist height. Best thing I have bought in many years!

    It is a rugged split. A sponser on AS. There are youtube videos on their site.

    thanks! real nice, that's for sure. I like the adj wedge height. no shortage of power, 22 gals per min! and who wouldn't like that chunk lifter. only prob for me is... it would cost me upwards of $6K! 'cause I would also want a new MS 500i and a pair of these to go with it all... in field and around the splitting site... lol :yes: but I am on my way... already got the green yard kart! ;)

    I see why you say that. the system is very well engineered, to say the least! and considering it has two systems, both cost effective and has a lot of utility built in to it.

    Past two mild mornings with no wind and very little snow on the ground four hours total I squeaked out two face cords with the Fiskars eight pounder. I'll be bringing this pile out about eight more ft towards me. I'm very happy at age 64 I can still do this. DSCN5371.JPG

    I guess it's true: one picture is worth a thousand words! what type of wood is that?
