    Brian, that's what I thought too, no free hand to help support the wood if needed. With the speed in which that ram moves though, you probably don't want your hands near.

    Not that type splitter, but a friend of mine's son sustained a leg fracture when a wood chunk flew out from the splitter that he was using, or maybe it was the whole chunk.

    BrendonV had a splitter like that. I'll find it.

    I think that there is a duct tape work-around for the safety.

    Smaller engine, and quicker, I think. Likely much lighter.

    I did the tarp thing last winter, what a pain! After I go move the lawn sprinkler, eat some cheerios, clean up the garage and put new rotors and brake pads on the ole lady's car I am going to start a material list for a new woodshed.

    Me and the pup spent yesterday pillaging the forest.

    Who's burning pine? Doug fir and larch here. I sold about a cord and a half of split pine last week for $125, just to get rid of it. At that price, listed for sale on the internet, it almost caused a world wide internet crash. Phones were rings, text notifications were going off and the internet classified adds were blowing up!

    How much does firewood sell for in other places? It's running everywhere from $150-$300 a cord around here.

    I'll burn some pine early and late season. No issue with it here.

    Prices in my area are similar $150-300. The low end being pine or 'mixed' cords. The high end being birch or straight fir.

    That's Canadian pesos too.

    I like pine for camp wood but I've burned it at home. Love me some Doug-fir though! If you're building a shed, watch the scrap yard for cat walk material, that's what most of mine is, air circulation all around! Any day cruising the Woods with the dog is a good day. I gotta clean up the wood pile at home! This is most but not all of it

    Burned pine and cedar last year. Not many folks parting with oak right now. Keep the chimney clean and the pine dry, burn it hot, no worries. Pine prices are about 150 per cord here. Just so much of it around, most people will just go harvest themselves. It's already cut down....
    They come pick up mill slash, saw dust, wood shavings.
    We still have the Goodman and Cole You Buck it and Truck it pile the neighbors feed off of for free.ro
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.
