what logs have you been chopping today!

Recommended Posts

A few pictures of our last few weeks, we're flat out cutting at the moment which is nice. The big logs on the trailer are to be split into lengths .

 

hehe 200kg up front on that 35, must be a pig to steer when the back end is empty. Nice setup mate.

Done no logs today, had to get on delivering all day - catching up from the boss being on holiday last week.

 

But yesterday, I was doing a 'little' bit of elm. I mean little as in, I've never known to swear at a piece of wood so much in my life!!!!!

 

Ok, people say it get tougher to cut / split as it ages, but this must have been felled in the 1800's, it that hard!!!! :cursing::angryfire:

 

Harder than eucalyptus?

Thanks, it is :biggrin:. It still lifts the front end not the processor anyway, and it's on extra large tyres to get the pto at less of an angle. Still it's nice to have a proper tractor around.
