We’ve been busy the last week, trying to get at a pile of hardwood that’s been sitting in your driveway for about 18 months now. 2 cords cut and split… only 14 more to do!!
We cut a cord of hardwood today. I started out using 2 different Stihl saws but the little one I knew was underpowered for the 12 inch wide maple, and the larger one didn’t fair much better. So, I dug out Stubbert’s ol’ faithful, a Husqvarna 353G.
We picked up a used wood chipper to manage some of the thinning that is required on the property. Drove a couple of hours to pick it up.
Our fireplace was WETT Certified installed. Everything done right and approved by the insurance company. The unit has its own air intake and a chimney that goes straight up. The problem is that the after gases do not burn off properly as this little video shows. We have had the stove for 6 years now, its always done this. [Edit note Sep 05 2013: To clarify, not every time but its gotten worse the last couple years.]
Purchased a used SplitFire 255 from a nearby rental shop. The splitter has some real torque to split through some of the toughest wood.
