Title: Free Logs; White Pine & White Oak Sebago Maine
Post by: JJ on October 22, 2016, 09:56:27 AM
For sawyers Southern Maine.

I have to make room for new leach field, so have several large trees which are going to come down.
Here is white pine, nice and straight about 80' tall:

And second white pine, not quite as big as above, as well as about 15" white oak.  Bucket is in front of the oak.

Logs will be on ground, free for taking but must be gone by November 4.   If you can come during week of the 4'th, excavator maybe here to help load.

Had a great time with JJ loading up five logs he cut down for his septic work.

This tiny case tractor of his may be small, but it is amazingly strong for its size.  The tractor lifted the larger logs onto the trailer one end at a time.  This was only about 17 miles from our place in Conway, NH.  I'm looking forward to presenting him with an oak slab for a mantle in his new home.

This tiny case tractor
I bet it is a great asset around the mill.

It was great to meet Dan and have one last bit of fun with the little '78 Case 646. 
It is an impressively strong little tractor, built the same way as the big ones at the time.  It's the little tractor that thinks it can...
We talk a good bit about family changes and exploring new things.  Turns out we overlap a bit between NH and MA.

Sadly it was last ride as I sold the 646 that afternoon, and the house yesterday.
Just not going to need it at my new home.

Also left behind is the E-Classic 2300 OWB, and I wish the new owner good luck, and hope it keeps them as warm as it did for me.

I have to find some new hobbies to distract me now..    :P
