    I don’t wanna forget my splitter. Here’s my kindling rack I made and some oak and plum kindling for my smoker, this way it’s much faster getting the food cooking. I’m kinda I’m patient, I put the food on the grill then start my fire 6E8E22CB-17BE-4D31-BB9A-C825BEE8C527.jpeg 9B7CC884-346C-4104-A11B-EE3E0655D789.jpeg EEEFFB3D-EF51-4EAF-AF53-14FA052ED01F.jpeg ECC7F82C-EB70-49FA-8562-3090F507A79B.jpeg

    That made me think of a BBQ place in Brunswick GA. I used to go to, twin oaks, I wish I had some now. They have a open brick pit about 10' long as I remember.

    Well I managed to get the wood all split up as well as a bunch more around the wood splitting area, so I added well over a cord to the pile.
    It's hard to see that I added anything to the pile unless you look from the side.
    The pictures are from Saturday. I had done all the stuff off the ground to get the trailer in there as well as a little over half the trailer when I took them.

    Had quite a bit of wood cut and on the ground. Worst way to do it for me, can't remember what I was thinking. Bucked it all up and have started splitting it. Getting after it pretty good last week or so.

    Won't be coming out for a while, it's beautiful out but the ground is awful. This recent drop in weather makes it seem better than it actually is.

    Been doing all the cutting with the 028. Sometimes it's nice to get back to the basics.

    DSW: You have to restack the wood pile; It should be stacked bark-side up. It sheds water better with the curvature of the bark. Stacked the way you do it, the bark loosens up and traps and holds water. Seriously.

    Bags are working good. We changed our movement method a little this year, we just move the bags while they are sitting on the pallets as opposed to moving them from the straps while they are hanging. By moving the pallet you put a lot less stress on the bag. The bags would rip a little bit while moving from the straps, but now we eliminated that all together with the change. We paid about $18 a piece for the woodland mills bags, and then we switched over to the Dino bags last year and we can get those for $12 a piece. By switching the transport method we can easily get 3 years out of each bag now.

    I thought the pallet idea was the way to go- how much in a bag ? 1/3 cord ? does the wood season ok in them ? I burn about 10 cords or less a year. I have a tw5 and elevator and always looking to touch the wood less and less each year

    Each bag is a face cord/1/3 of a cord. Wood seasons really well. We just did 150 bags of oak that we will sell this fall. The cherry and ash will be ready to go by summertime. Looks like you have a JD 5400, I would think that would be plenty for moving the bags around. You never have to touch the wood again until you burn it, it is a very clean way of doing firewood, no messy piles to deal with. We used to have a TW-5 with the automated biomass conveyor before we got our Powersplit.

    Looks like a nice, clean set up.
