Been running some alder through the 8 way on the Transaw, set to 550 long, it is making great mini billets that stack well, set up like this it eats huge volumes of timber, takes longer to stack it than process it !

Love a bit of Alder, so easy.

Been chainsawing up a load of softwood to put through my processors splitter. Been getting some hard frosts each morning and I'm down South, so winter is certainly upon us, I personally can't wait!!

Been chipping the smaller bits that aren't worth processing this week and coppicing a hedge with the tree shear we've just got.

You chip all that! At least half my contract processing is on that size or smaller

Yes, we find it's more efficient to chip it and it improves the quality of the firewood if we take stuff less than 4/5 inch out.

 

To be honest I was chipping bigger stuff than usual though because I've had enough this week of chainsawing bent pieces to get them through the processor...
