Why did you crawl out of the passenger side?
The 338 wont see 13K rounds in its entire lifetime.
Today went better. 4 hours, cleaned up a about 10 burn piles, pulled down one big branch that blew down last winter Got a small rick of good 10" rounds. I'm jsut stacking them on site, have no use for them yet. Started on another big branch that broke off but lodged almost vertically, had a few problems and finallyi pulled it down.
MS361 is one nice saw. Had only been run at the dealers to start it the first time, been sitting on the bench for a few weeks. Barked at me with first pull and fired up on hte second.
I thought I was done in that area but saw a burn that I had missed on my way out. I'll get that one first on my next expedition and then it is fun part of felling trees.
Even came home still able to walk. That garden wagon made a bit difference.
Looks like nice wood Cowboy, I was out the other day and cut a load of Stringy, that's beautiful wood to burn too.
She'd be a smooth bore by the time it did
Don't go over firing that heater with the Red Box, she's good for punching out a lot of heat and burning out fireboxes fairly quickly compared to other wood here in OZ. I tend to mix my woods up a bit to avoid killing the heater too soon, I might run a bit of stringy and box together or peppermint etc.
and I would be missing my right arm. And be deaf.
And very poor

Very nice load CB.
That little subie had a workout today as did you .
I saw a nice 2000 forester today that needed a motor, very tempting, but I managed to scrounge up a trailer load of projects elsewhere.
And yes, even some on the front passenger side .
That' why you keep an M44 mosin beside it. Shoot all day,wow people with 5' of flames If you touch it off after dark and that steel but plate will still dislocate your shoulder or break your colar bone if you hold it wrong.
I see a few nice yellow and green ones in there but I have too many saws lol.
You know what I say, sell one buy two or three, or a trailer load .
There's a couple 55's in there too, I know you like working on those .
One looks to have a CP cylinder on it , and the other has a scored cylinder, might be able to make one out of them.
Maybe I need to deliver that saw to you in person on my southbound trip....
turning into Guido Salvage I see. Any poulan 4000 in that pile.
There's a variant of it here, just didn't pay a lot of attention to it except to notice it.
I'm looking forward to burning it but it'll need a fair while to dry out. Wood from the same tree cut and split in Oct still has a lot of moisture in it, will need another summer or even two. We have some red stringybark scattered down here. Most people turn their noses up at it because it isn't red gum (which is the only stuff people around here will buy to burn) but red stringy is meant to be of the same density. I got 5 cubes of red stringy 4 years ago from a tree that was taken down at the local school and it was great. Bugger all ash in the wood but had to knock the bark off it.
I’ve read that Stringybark and turpentine does not burn very well but from my experience once spilt and seasoned it buns well. Red box on the other hand is awesome for those cold nights. I had a trailer load a few years ago, the main trunk had twisted grain an absolute nightmare to split. I ended up partially dicing the big rounds with my Stihl 009 ripping into the end grain before I got on here and learned about noodling (and bigger saws).
It was a very sorry sight indeed
Nah. Thats what I have the 243 for.
chipper that is a big pile of saws. I don't see any real ones though, no creamsicles. I guess that i because they don't break so easily.
