our customer and a member story
« on: March 16, 2019, 08:58:31 AM »
Mike, a very green customer came in to get a peavey to move his logs.
A tree had come down in his yard and he had another that would need to come down.  Since they were chestnut he decided to have them milled.  Terrific Timbers told him to prep the logs by moving them to the driveway and suggested Mike contact us.

When Mike came in and purchased the peavey he asked if I could show him how to use a peavey.  I gave him a quick demo on a cardboard box and tire as I was not going out in the snow to do a demo. ;D  Then he showed me the pics of his logs and where he needed to move them.  In my opinion he was awfully ambitious as he had a long way to go and they need to be turned around!(I don't like that much physical work and would have used an arch)  He also asked for some advice about drying his wood so we went and found Kevin who gave him more advice.  

The advice and peavey got the job done and the customer sent pics.  I hope Mike or Terrific Timbers sends more pics as this project progresses. <br

I forgot

Mike had this to say, "Kevin was spot on about getting the log on a pivot point.  Took maybe 30 minutes and I got the log all the way to the driveway.  Thank you for making the BEST peavey ever!!!"

So Tam - Are you saying that your customer himself requires kiln drying?  Are you afraid of checking, warping, or other degrade issues during the drying process?  :D :D

This poor guy learned to use his new chainsaw on this project!
And yes after he air dries his lumber for a bit he will need to find someone with a kiln.
