  1. Unless Its kiln dried to lower than atmospheric humidity & it comes out of the kiln that day its no different to properly seasoned wood. Wood will absorb moisture to become ambient with the atmosphere. I dry my wood in an open ended polly tunnel then store it indoors for about a week before burning it and it is consistently 11% MC. I have a log boiler so fast burning isn't an issue.
  2. Has anyone ever come across a log deck compatible with a a horizontal log splitter to enable an auto feed into the splitter? I have a posch splitmaster and the only labour intensive part of the process is cutting the logs and pushing / lifting to the log raising cradle.
  3. Just wondering how many of you guys sell billets? Whats you customers preferred lengths? What do you price them at?
  4. 1 meter and strait into the boiler.
  5. has anyone ever tried to lift a bundle of billets with a bale spike?
  6. I've bought a load of these [ame] [/ame]
  7. There was a smartcut 700 on ebay a few weeks ago for 5K. It was used but had hardly been touched.
  8. The main reason I'd prefer horizontal is I think its more ergonomic to have the table on the back to pick the billets off when stacking them into bundles. Theres no lifting, more just sliding them off the table into a rack.
  9. This is definitely much more than I need, doesn't stop me wanting one though.
  10. I've had a look. Its a bit more than I need I think and therefore a bit more expensive.
  11. And my biomass boiler likes 1m long billets.
  12. The bottom billets getting stuck on their own promo video doesn't inspire confidence.
