Absolutely beautiful splits!
Got some good cherry for cooking wood.
This one was about 21”. The bigger one is 29”
A little load I had in my old tacoma.
Your Tacoma is not squatting too much under that load. Looking good.
Here in PA, we only have about a foot of snow on the ground, but the temps are being reported by the weather guessers on TV as 21 degrees below average. So our snow cover is still soft and fluffy, just rooster tails under the tires of the ATV and builds up under trailer and skid plates. So, for my micro operation here I ran my snow plow around and skimmed a couple inches of the fluff off my trails:
Then dug deep into the dregs of my wood piles and moved small cart loads to the driveway for pickup loads by chilly customers begging for another load.
I'd really prefer not to offer the wood I am cutting now which isn't seasoned as well as it should be.
No complaints though, this is great weather to be working in the woods!
Although you can't tell in the picture, my newer Tacoma doesn't handle a load as well as my older one did.
No fancy drone, nor gimbal assist follower - just a stick I found in the woods with my GoPro strapped to it, and I move it along with me to catch the full trail pull:
The sunshine is already making the little hill alongside my range backstop (at about 1:00) slippery, but I played with it a little and got some traction to get up and around.
I'll take a break from posting for a while, let other folks share their haulers. Thanks
Got some more cherry today. I made one cut before taking the pic. Got it down without damaging anything. Kota seemed to like the bark. Hopefully won’t hurt him. I Heard cherry is bad for cows or horses. Not totally bottomed out. About 1” away before me getting in it. I wanna build a flat bed and put airbags on it.
Tiny bit of rot but not bad at all. It’s some nice dense cherry that actually grew cherry's
Low tech some days... still gets the job done!! Don't worry bout posting too much around here as it's always nice to see others loads cause it keeps the thread rolling.
Well that was well planed drop for such and ugly spot, call it a win either way!!
Keep on ... Runnin' Loads!!
Nice truck. Much better shape than my Tacoma Nice load too!
Cherry leaves, bark, twigs and pits contain cyanide. Not good for that beautiful pup of yours. Ron
Snow is going fast here and I'm glad to see it go!! I'm moving the last of the firewood for this years heating season, up to the house,
That's a good looking partner there moto.
Filled three trucks this evening in a lil under two hrs. My truck mostly all oak with a smidge of maple.
Hauled the last load of the winter. Starting to get muddy around here.
So I haven't done pretty much any pretty loads this year so how about a progress pic ... slowly filling the row cause I'm just using my Honda quad and trailer.
I have a lil bit to go and hope to have that filled up by end of summer.
Keep on ..... Runnin' Loads !!
I'm like Jere, and FarmerSteve, I'm not a wood snob, but when all you have is Red Oak, all you burn is Red Oak. I hoard Cherry and Locust when I can get it, but mostly Oak.
Here's the rest.
Three more truck loads tonight. 2 trucks were all oak other truck was all cherry. 2 hrs of splittin got us on our way. 8 more loads for me and ill be happy!
Took out a load of white oak for myself today.
