    Plenty of spiders when felling,they are in the bark a lot of huntsman spiders,they are hamless but made ya take a deep breath when they crawl up ya arm.

    Oh no. The dreaded Casuarina undercut :D I've only seen, awe, maybe a few hundred of those!

    Keep the updates coming mate, I've been slack on my thread and haven't been doing stuff all cutting.
    You're right about the heat too. Has been strangely consistent temperatures across a wide part of Vic and SA. Even Mount Gambier, the coldest most miserable place in the state was the same temp as up here today.

    It's interesting how the more cutting you do the more trees you find to cut :D

    It just needs a harvester head and it would be the perfect firewood machine.

    This after about 12 tanks of fuel.
    I have a pre filter over the HD2 filter that helps a bit.
