No trailer, just a 2001 Chevy 2500HD, it ended up easier to just quarter them. Just plain heavy for a 63 year old. I retired at the end 2019 after 40 years in the glass and glazing business. My back, knees, and shoulders are very well used, I gotta try and save what's left of me. My new NorthStar log splitter just arrived today, I have started the assembly but will have to get a friend to help me stand the beam up.

Got it put together, ran it for a bit, seems worthy.

Acquired an older 026 a month ago to add to the pack. Went thru it and passed all checks. Cleaned it up and got it tuned in tday. Cut a few test pieces and added to the pile.
Switched it out to 3/8 .050 standard chain on a 20" bar. Wood shavings are collected and used in the chicken coop for insulation and nesting boxes, compost and garden.

FinnKamp, what is the bridge in your firewood stack for? It looks like a pass through.
The third tree outside the picture is not perfectly aligned with the other two. It keeps the the pile straight, the bridge is wider than it looks.
With the peek-through hole in the middle, a bit more artsy look comes as a bonus.

Had a leaner that broke off about 6' above the ground, then hung up high in another tree. I had been under-cutting 6' sections, and hoping it would fall - it didn't. So, yesterday I made another undercut and dropped the fresh butt into a plastic feed pan that was also resting on an old piece of plywood.

Used a come-along to drag the bottom away till it fell. My plywood ended up as kindling, and my plastic tub ended up as recycle material. But, it ended up on the ground where I cut it and moved it for split and stack:

Then off to do some processing on a much larger oak that uprooted and blew over about the same time:

This one was green when it blew over, and will need a second season before it will be ready to burn.

Well, the “woodpile” in the house was getting a bit low and since I live in Canada and I’m pretty sure we’ll get more snow and cold so I brought a load inside. Here are a few pictures of the journey from the garage to the house. I haven’t even touched the wood covered beside the house and we’re almost February :)
