    handling loose logs

    I just cut into a big heap as long the wood is reasonably dry when you do this your logs will be ok . When loading logs will a loader and bucket keep the bucket flat to the floor and once it’s full crown back just like any thing else. Be careful when pushing up against walls . Logs go over the cleaner move and heaped up with loader . Left to dry sold this coming winter.

    I’ll let you know how things go. My blade was picked up on Tuesday and they said 2/3 weeks lead time.

    Saw blade supplier

    How did you get on ? I’ve just ordered a new 900mm blade from E Bennett it’s half the price of dealers one and 100s cheaper than rivals. They picked the old blade up to get all the measurements spot on so I’ll wait and see what they come up with.

    Japa 370 processor premature bar wear

    Yes I know how it works used to have one . What I mean is once the timber has hit the stop is there tension in the feed belt so as you cut the timber is getting pushed forward ever so slightly from the tension in the belt . On the palax the stop retracts once the blade starts to come down meaning any tension in the belt disappears

    Japa 370 processor premature bar wear

    Is the feed belt still pushing the timber up against the bar as it’s cutting?

    EU Imported firewood into the UK

    I feel this is a very fair point, I see the same attitudes on farming forums. I don't know but after logs have been kiln dried will that not have killed off any diseases in the wood . I buy 3-4 loads a year to sell along side seasoned hardwood. Stove retailers tell customers that they need kiln dried logs , I've given up trying to tell them my seasoned wood is fine so I sell them kiln dried.

    Any interesting new processors out there?

    It also can be lifted out of the way so no splitting for small timber. If I change my Palax 90 I go for the trans saw it's a much better machine I was to tight when I bought the palax I've always wish I'd spent a few more quid and bought one . A note or word of advice to anyone wanting to buy there 1st processor get a circular saw one against chain saw one . Less maintenance less saw dust less hassle all round. I've had both great thing about circular saw you can just fire it up and off you go if you have spare hr no messing about with oil chain or bar . No doubt I'm wrong
