    Had the 7900 and 346 out again today on this nice 40" red oak. Haul out 1 load today and will probably take 2-3 more to finish it up.:D:chainsaw: The Dolmar with a 28" full chisel chain really is angry at wood:D IMG_20131226_123243_379.jpg IMG_20131226_125929_958.jpg IMG_20131226_163623_262.jpg

    And here's the new thread for a new year and another start to another year of truck use/abuse.

    Here's my 88 Ford 1/2T again nicely loaded with 1.45 cord.....and yes that's a jack-all taking the stress of the rear springs.... 0119141916a.jpg 0119141916b.jpg

    Lets see your loads....

    Sure am glad I have a trailer. That has to take a ton of work to load and unload like that! But man that's alot wood on that poor 1/2 ton! It's a ford it can handle it!

    Can't tell on my phone what kind of wood that is. If its dry pine its probably not too bad loading & unloading in larger pieces like that. Do that occasionally for bonfires.

    It's standing dead and dead fall poplar and oak and depending on the weather it can be 2 weeks worth of heat. Yes, it is a bit of work to get r loaded but I'm not afraid of work, it's all on farm so slow and easy trip back in fine by me.

    Lets see some more loads.....
