This piece of tree has been down for three months or so. Finally got to it today. Not much, but all hard wood. Two rounded a bit trailer loads. 20 cubic feet. About 1/8 or so of a cord.
Not the greatest day to be out doin it, but I got my daily exercise and nobody else is gunna git the wood. 14 had not been running for about 4 months, so it was good to get it out and do something.

The wood available here is mostly bull pine. Let it lay outside uncovered for 6 months it isn't worth carrying in the house Don

I have a lot of hard woods around here, like maples, oak, and ash trees. It is too bad there is a lot of invasive hawthorn trees that have taken over my property over the last 10 years or so now. I do have a couple of apple trees, and pear trees. It is nice when those get fruit.

I hauled out some wood with the junkyard PK yesterday, Noel. The weather was good, and recent heavy winds put some more dead wood on the ground. I did cut down an ash tree that the bore beetles killed. I've been cutting all winter and have made many trips with the PK with no problems yet. It's about time for an oil change, so I'll get to that this week. Soon I can finish painting the hood, fenders, lift assembly, and install the lights. This tractor build was well worth the effort, and it's always great to get out and get some firewood cut.

These tires bite in real good. I would recommend them to anyone looking for great traction in the woods. They are Carlisle Farm Specialist tires on modified Case 444 rims. I had to move the wheel centers to get the back spacing that I needed for the PK.
