An elderly neighbor had a whole bunch of trees cut down in his creek bed to make a small reservoir, didn't want the wood but needed it out. We heat with wood; win/win! We worked on it on & off for a couple of weeks but this is a typical day -

Leaving the barn to head up canyon:


Up the canyon road:


Across the creek:


Dragged 'em all out of here. Way steeper/deeper than it looks in the picture:


Good neighbors are GOLDEN:


Pretty green & yellow sawbuck:



Headed home with the chunks that don't fit in the truck:


Back to the woodpile:


Needs to season until next year but it's a whole lot 'o heat for a little sweat & a few gallons of diesel. Baby John pulled all those huge tree trunks out of the creek except one. It was hung up on a stump and we needed the Ford to help a little just that once.

20+ cord every year..........
Not a fan of poplar at all, especially the big ones. I do burn em, when one is in my way.... The bark is so thick, they don't start drying out until they are split. felling one and leaving it a year, it will be just as wet then as the day you dropped it.

I have a preponderance of beech and it is great burning wood. I rarely cut a maple, never an oak or cherry, unless they are spars. I tend to save the ash as for all intents it is "standing cord wood" cut it at 3 split it at 4 and burn it at 5. junk like yellow birch is great firewood, white birch not so much but the bark makes awesome fire starter (for an out door wood stove).

So, did you burn the bear too?

Dead Horse, your place is beautiful, I'd kill for that woodshed!

Well I planned on splitting some wood with my Bark Buster PTO log splitter today and posting some pics, but it's 2:00 am here and I got a toothache that won't wait. Throbbing! And I'm a person who has never had teeth trouble. Not taking a chance on getting hot and making it infected (if it isn't already). Looks like I'll be making an expensive trip to the dentist. When I'm able to split the logs I'll be sure and take some pics.

Occasionally, I'll go after a deadfall.

But usually, I get an 8 cord load of tree length delivered

Then I browbeat my daughter and grandkids into helping me split it.

And my Brother-in-Law and I stack a year's supply undercover.

But I try to stay a year ahead so as to have plenty of seasoned wood.

And I'm enjoying it right now! :dance1: :thumbsup: :laughing:

That's an unusual machine in your top photo. What are those designed for?

And THIS is why you should always take the biggest tractor you have into the bush!

Sorry about poor quality, it was a scanned Polaroid.

Actually I have to kiss the oil mans azz cause this machine (JD 6200) drinks fuel like I simply can't explain! Maybe it's not broken in yet with only just over 1000 hours!

I love these photos with the grapples all loaded up. Sometimes I wonder why the tractor doesn't fall on its face with all that weight in front of it. Grapples look like great tools to have.

it is a concrete trough but it is the right height with a 6x6 across it on one end and a 2x6 on the other so that i can run the chainsaw mill without being on the ground or rigging up something else to hold the log up.




Terryknight- I see you use a section of ladder for the guide track for your chainsaw mill. How do you set that up/secure it for your first cut?
I just bought an Alaskan mill and was thinking about using a ladder section but wasn't sure how I'd do it.

Good morning,

Attached is a picture from this weekends work.... My old college friend and I get together and help each other out with wood each year. In the background is my B2920 with the snow plow wings I just installed 2 weeks ago. What a difference! Attached is a carry-all I had manufactured from a local welder since this is something I have yet to learn in all of my free time.:thumbsup:


IMG_0975.jpg

We used to split wood in the summer for the follow season, however we discovered that we drank more beer than split wood! TOO DARN HOT! It was low teens and single digits this weekend which was perfect for cutting and splitting! :D

IMG_0974.jpg

BTW in looking at all of the posts I'm surprised I haven't noticed any 4 way splitters? We purchased our Wallenstein 8 years ago and its the only way to go! I hope I didn't open a can of worms here.....:rolleyes:

Nice woodpile! Reminds me how much work I need to do as soon as the weather breaks and we get rid of all this snow and I can get in the woods.

This is great! As much as I love my wood heat I hate how many times I have to handle the wood. I'm learning a lot here. Thanks!

No oil truck here either. Like a lot of folks firewood is just a way of life.

Just getting started as the wood master has only been installed a few weeks. I had a stock pile near the hous that needed cut and split and have been pulling a few logs from the wood as time allows.

Some great pictures here. This motivates me to get out there and start cutting for next winter.

It is a boom made for a forklift. I just bolted a 2 point drawbar on and welded a piece on for the top link. I bought it from a friend that decommissions factories. The drawbar can be removed and still used on a forklift. I'll try to get some better pics.

I live in town and my woodlot is 50 miles away. I cut and process about 7 to 8 full cords of firewood each year to heat my son's house and my house. My Case 450 crawler tractor lives at the woodlot, the B7800 plows snow in town in the winter and goes to the country in the summer to mow and do other chores and the RTV 500 stays at the woodlot where it is real handy. The last few years (since I retired) I have been bucking and splitting in late winter or early spring when it is still cool, so the Kubota is still in town on snow duty so is not available to help with that.

I ground skid tree length logs to a yard and push them into a compact pile for processing. If the snow is not too deep I collect smaller sticks with the RTV. My son helps with the processing. We use my Stihl 034 and his Stihl MS250 for bucking. We use home made tongs to lift any big sticks and a home made log jack to lift smaller sticks. We try to buck as many sticks as possible in the pile to avoid lifting. We split as we go - buck until it gets cluttered, then split and stack on pallets to cure. The RTV is handy for moving the splitter and hauling pallets. Once the wood is dried in late summer we haul it home. I use my 16 ft. equipment trailer and my 1/2 ton for my 2 to 3 cords, my son borrows a tandem truck from his workplace for his load. Once I get my wood home, I stack it in my basement wood room next to the furnace. Any excess wood (including odds and ends I pick up around town - cleaning up for neighbours, etc.) I stack on pallets and cover with tarps. I can then move the pallets with my homemade rear forks when the wood is needed.

Here are some pictures taken over several years. Hope I didn't bore anybody.

Love the tractors. I have never seen a John Deere 2+2 type like that. I need to get a skidder for my 3 point.

My little Kubota BX2200 does all I need it to. Sometimes I wish it was bigger, but in the deep snow I really don't have to worry about getting stuck, especially with chains. Plows my driveway good except I would like a snowblower as the 4 ft bucket can take a while. I can back out or get a push if needed. I don't have any pictures, but now that the snow is too deep I have been moving wood with the bucket only. Works good for really heavy pieces or in the snow with a narrow plowed path. The trailer gets good payload when going across the farm. Luckily I have more than enough wood close to the house to make it thru the year. I have been doing a lot of splitting this winter even on cold days.

I put industrial wire baskets on the front and rear pallet forks, chain them on with logging chains, fill them with cut firewood, lift, put tractor in 4WD, and go!

I will try this again. Not sure if anyone likes this idea, but I have tried lots of different ways over the years and this is the easiest to me. I take my tractor with a couple of those blue chep? skids. ( they are free and plentiful, as well as sturdy) I go to wherever the dead or doomed tree is. The cutting,splitting and stacking takes place right there in the bush or fencerow. So the mess stays there also. After a reasonable job of stacking the wood approx 4' high, I wrap the wood with shrink wrap. Because I have forks front and rear on my tractor I can bring back 2 completed skids of firewood. I then stack them neatly under a south facing awning (made special for just this purpose ) Once the wood has dried for about a year I bring it into the garage under my house. I have a totally seperate room for the wood furnace. I have installed a roller conveyor that slopes slightly toward the furnace. The first skid rolls al the way to the end of the conveyor , and the next three follow. I am then ready for winter, I cut the plastic off and as I use the wood the empty skids go back outside to be reused next year. This way I only bring in dry seasoned wood and only handle it twice, once when I originally cut stack and then when I unstack right into the firebox. I use this method even if I get wood from by bush property. I simply stack it on a skid on the back of the pick up,wrap and then unload with the tractor once I'm home. Hope someone likes this idea, its pretty simple.

It amazes me that the wood dries for the people that shrink wrap it like that. Are the ends of the split wood exposed on yours? I have seen plenty where they are shrink wrapping it with the wrap run horizontally and it surprises me that the wood dries.

My stuff for firewood

It is great to see your Farmall M, Kevin. We had a couple of M's and three or four H's on the farm where I grew up in northern California in the late 40's through early 60's. We used them for planting, cultivating, etc. row crops.

From the spring under the seat and the roller on the drawbar, this looks like a late model M. Are the fenders original? I've never seen them on an M before.

here is my set up. It has been working great until I recently broke my ankle as I slipped on some ice. I am laid up now, no longer able to cut any firewood, but this site makes for some good reading.

Woodpile_In_Shed.jpgWoodshed-first snow.jpg

One pic is my new wood shed. The neat stack is only done because I had to get the pile out of the way to put on the roof. The second pic is my usual way of handling wood.

Stacking is such a pain. Doubles or triples the amount of time you are dealing with wood. At a minimum in adds one more handling step. The floor of my woodshed is covered in pallets, so air can circulate through the stack. Consider that a wood stack is a lot more air leaky than a house, and a house will have an air change every hour or so. I don't think that more air than that will dry the wood any faster. The limiting factor is the movement of water inside the wood to the surface.

So I stack some at the edges so I can make the pile higher, but mostly I don't stack.

***

Normally wood collecting is done in late fall. This year we had a burglary and life has been chaotic. And we've had twice the normal snow

News2014.1-Snowload.jpg

I need to use the snowblower to move the tractor anywhere. With the ground still thawed, it's really easy to get stuck. Even the road side ditch once took me over an hour to get out of.

So I'm spending two hours a day felling, cutting and splitting by hand, and sledding it out with a calf sled. Keeps me fit.

:cool:All wood is good. Some is just better than others. When someone offers me wood, I just say yes. Find out what kind after. Got a load of hemlock last year. Haven't use it yet but still looks pretty piled up. :cool:

First we fell and cut it up in the woods, then use the bucket to move it to the trailer staged at the edge of the woods:

0507011108b.jpg

Then we haul out with that

0411121934.jpg

and unload / stack at the house.

If we need to split something, we do it at the house. But even so, it's only split if it's too heavy to lift. Otherwise it goes into the furnace WHOLE.

Well, I haven't had to come up with anything too involved yet, but I expect drive train parts and main castings and such would be roughly as common as hen's teeth. There is an online place that has quite a bit of support for them.

Lombardini diesels are still being produced and there is support out there for them. Whether that extends to the particular model in my tractor, I couldn't say.

And I fervently hope not to have to find out...

The engine seems to be in excellent shape. I've started it without starting aids in single digit weather on a number of occasions. In fact, it starts much better than my John Deere 750.

Great ideas in this thread....especially like the old Farmall setup!

Here's a few shots of my wood lot...I have a Wallenstein WP820, SurgeMaster Splitter, CountryMfging 2 ton wagon, Kubota L3010, BX25, and T-Rex trailer.

I highly recommend the Country Manufacturing 2 ton wagon....I added a cylinder to it and load it with split wood directly off the wood processor. It has no problem dumping a full load of wood.

We drag our truck-bed trailer (1 ton chassis) behind the tractor into our property or surrounding forest, staging it in an accessible area if we need to skid logs. After dropping the standing-dead tree or trees, we buck on site or skid (but as little as possible!), fill the bucket on the ground and load the parked trailer from the tractor until full. Sometimes we can park the trailer next to the downed tree and simply roll the rounds of mainly Doug Fir, Birch, Larch, and some Rocky Mountain Maple right up a HF motorcycle ramp into the bed. We then rehitch to the trailer and either fill the bucket with rounds, but usually rocks and boulders for my .5 and drive back to the shop area. We wheel the Craftsman 27T log splitter out and split right out of the trailer and into my truck for transport back to my home commando pictures 083.jpg, or we simply stack into the 10' "bays" of the lean-to off the shop if it is to stay at the cabin. commando pictures 099.jpgWood that stays at the cabin is seasoned a minimum of three years, two years if it goes to my place.
We split the wood for the cabin over several splitting parties, but it never touches the ground...we split right into the bucket and transport over to the cabin deck. We roll the hand-built wood racks to the stairs at the end of the deck and load them from the tractor bucket, then roll them into place on the deck for the winter. commando pictures 114.jpg Pictures of our racks being built can be found in my thread history.

Handling wood multiple times sucks, so we do as little of this as possible.

Fell the trees in the woods, and buck them to 90" length (divisible by 5 to give 18" blocks). Leave tops under 3-4" in the woods.
Use FEL forks to move the 90" logs to the splitting site.
Stack logs on slight slope above splitter and buck them as needed for the splitter. Use FEL bucket to lift large blocks to splitter height 3-4 at a time
When splitting, stack onto pallets of about 1/5 cord each. Stack the pallets two high for two years drying time. Drape a 4x4 piece of rubber roofing over each stack of split wood to shed snow and rain over the two year period.
Move the pallets as needed to the garage for easy access to the inside wood boiler. This winter using about 1 pallet every 4-5 days.
Easy one man operation.

Added a protective screen to the front grill guard to keep sticks and such from puncturing the hyd. cooler and radiator.

My ideas:

1) I have tried mesh log bags, see photo, but found them to be too easily torn. They do last a bit longer if stacked on pallets and moved on the pallet rather than using the haul loops.

2) I got fed up bucking by hand and splitting last year so my neighbour (who is a wood merchant) brought his Posch S350 firewood processor over - what a difference in output rate! You can see an S350 working on this video Posch Spaltfix S-350 firewood processor - YouTube , sadly at $30-40,000 I will not be buying one any time soon...

Have fun,
Duncan
