    A Screaming Jimmy?

    WFO.

    If you ever heard a skidder run that wasn’t a John Deere in the 1960s-1980s, chances are it was Detroit Powered.

    They have their own sound.

    My neighbor put one in his pickup makes o lot of noise but gets the job done. He picked up a new toy to try and shoehorn into a truck an old military generator with a v12 Detroit for a power plant. Can’t wait to see what he does with it. I hear it running every now and then sounds scary hope he has a strong enough frame to hold it.

    Bout 3500 rpm but they sound like they are going 7000 cause they fire twice as often.

    What setup had that kind of power on a stock 4-53T?
    I seemed to recall them being around the same power #s as the early 6BT Cummins, so I looked it up just to check on my memory.
    All I can find is 175hp, 420ft/lbs. Early 6BT being ~160/400.

    The four big pieces are ~36" diameter and 18" tall. The log weight charts say that should be about 667 lbs each!

    Got some real nice pin oak. I’ve used it before in my smoker and it burned longer then the white oak. It’s very heavy.

    Sure, there's a tornado watch in southwestern PA today, but there's wood to be gotten!
    I had taken wood from this house before, just 2 miles away, and couldn't pass up these oak chunks when offered.

    @hseII What are you doing with the wood?

    Some of those loads seem a bit light for that truck.
