Cut up a small pile of locust poles and stacked same then turned to on the split/stack of willow rounds. 2 trailer loads split/stacked. My legs could have gone for another load but I was readyi for a coffee break. Somehow I never seem to get back to work after that.
I have a new Black Diamond spitter with Briggs engine. It has caused problems 3 times now with sticking needle valve.
Today for my first load I pulled until I couildn't pull any more, choke on, choke off, not even a cough. Okay pull plug to check if flooded. Sckrench would'nt fit. Okay - to the shop for a plug wrench. I was looking for a couple sizes to take back when the light dawned. It was an idiosyncrasy of that motor. I found that you can pull forever and it won't start until you turn the ignition switch on. True story.
This is why I've been converting my 2-series huskies to the spring loaded on/stop switches, because I have been that guy more times than I'd like to admit.
