    10 cord is nothing to be ashamed of. What is going on with the fir I see laying around ?

    A guy advertised he wanted the back of his 3 acre lot cleaned out & a guy with a brand new chainsaw & gloves got there before I did. He cut EVERYTHING that was close enought to carry out to his trailer (1/4 cord) & left everyhing in a **** of a mess. I spent the first morning clearing a small access road through cross piled Spruce, Fir & Poplar so I could get to the back of the property where the big Maple was. I cut 2 huge poplar he left as he was afraid they would drop on buddy's garage. I cut most of this stuff up into junks the owner could drag to a burn pile. I had to wait until freeze up as it was quite soft/boggy but that little tractor could go anywhere without cutting a single road other than the initial clean up. Great little skidder - never once attempted to bring the front up using my home built 3 point gizmo. This photo is quitting time on 2nd day.-011-jpg

    Yeah, 10 cord is a lot by my standards too, I usually cut between 4 and 6 cord for 2 households. We both burn wood as an auxiliary heat source. I spent this morning cutting a new access road into a small stand of hardwood I want for firewood for next winter. I can see me using the log cone a lot in this spot, to help snake the logs out to the road.

    You mentioned small potatoes. Well after living for 50 years I know that if you do something long and hard enough it becomes unloved work. 10 cords is not a lot in today's standards huge amount but I can say with a great amount of certainty that the 10 cords was done with a lot of love an enjoyment. This in my opinion is huge.

    I did enjoy myself (7 years retired) even though it was during our coldest weather of the winter. Left the little kubota there every night, brush the snow off in the morning, hit the glow plugs for a full min., use the decompressor lever (new cable made from a choke cable) & she would fire right up. After chunking up on site, it was all hauled home with my Ford Ranger & a heavy utility trailer - which I cannot get into my back yard. Every stick was moved from truck/trailer into the back yard with a wheel barrow, split with my Super Split wood splitter & stacked. 3 years supply for wood shop & house - had a ball.
