    So that was you lot? I thought it was the Labour Party's self-immolation. We get crazy sunrises (if really bad) and sunsets during your bushfires so we'll be sure to check the sunset this evening. Looks like a great bonfire and some serious brownie reward points well earned. Onya

    Probably optional being made in the 70s. None of my Poulans or the 111 have chain brakes and there all 70s and 80s saws.

    @Backyard Lumberjack I left the battery in my JD X530 this past winter. It was kept in a shed and temps got down to negative 40 a couple times. It was below zero many times. This spring the tractor started just fine without any charging of the battery.

    that grey/yellow ryobi LOOKS cool....some saws LOOK mean...i think the more angular mid sized huskys look incredible. i suspect the ryobi performance doesn't match its looks.

    Dan, what IS the Stihl-obi? ms 261?

    I looked again and it is just a hand guard. No brake.

    A little bit of everything here.

    Split 2/3 cord of new hardwood last night and loaded 1/3 cord of seasoned wood last night. Dropped that off today for a guy.

    Scrounged a couple of planks that had been sitting beside my office building for the past several months. Turned them into kindling.

    Great sunset last night.

    But ,,,

    It was a good day , the trackhoe operator will pick out the stems for retrieval when they get a driveway in :)
    If any of you guys are running low on wood come on over , I might have a bit that I could spare ;)
    Btw , I had some salmon on the barbie for supper , I planked it out on some scrounged cedar that I had cut at a friends place so he could get more sun on his house , sure made for some nice tasting salmon :)

    Well chit all to heck !
    I might have to take back that free wood offer :(
    Just got off the phone with Paul , that big storage area that he wanted cut is on hold because he may not be able to get approval for it :(


    Well , maybe I could spare just a bit .
    Yup, I can so come on up , cars only , no trucks because I don't want to run short on wood ;)

    great photos steve, and Dan.

    I did a bit of splitting and stacking tonight. I love oak, so easy to split. I was loving the eucalyptus to, that virtually splintered from a stern look. I guess 5 years into this I've learnt a thing or two...and I like that I now do a LOT of my splitting with my x17 and rattle through with so much less sweat and grunt!

    FYI.

    I DID NOT cut this thing down. That stump is strange.

    20190518_195114.jpg Good night to clean up what was left around the stove. Little oak and cherry makes for a nice fire to relax around.
