You guys ever have a job that wont end ??? This was the one for me 😂 should be completely wrapped up by this weekend, loggings done and irons moving out. 

 

 40 bolts and she is on the trailer. 


  she went to the mill tonight, wash and oil change, couple hoses.


 


  rained like a mother the whole way up, finally getting to that big ash job I've got. 


  not the best picture but was in the middle of setting another 45' bridge across a creek, doing more and more of them, have to deck it next week.

Some of you have complemented me on my wood piles, which I appreciate, but there is another operator on our crew that takes it to the next level. While he does plenty of tap tapping back and forth, he still moves a lot of wood and the trucks love him-

It took me a long time to figure out that life is just better when you can laugh at yourself.  Just think of me as a concerned citizen helping you along the road to recovery.   ;D  

Honestly, my entirely life has been a joke.  And some days its a pretty funny one at that.   


I can make piles as nice as that guy.  With a 3120 and a 14ft bar.  Just tell the cutter leave me about a foot of trim.

Nice looking pile Barbender. It sure is nice working with someone who takes a little pride in their work.

Believe me Mike, I don't take myself too seriously, and I like to dish it out- so I have a steady stream of guff coming back at me so I'm good at taking it too😁😁  Grandpa, we also have guys whose piles don't resemble that one at all👎

Barge,

Are those power lines in the pictures or guide wires used in moving the "bridge" into place?

(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

There's an old fellow about an hour north of here that puts up about 30 bush cord or so of splitwood for sale every year.
His piles are laser straight and level and plumb, not a speck of sawdust to be found anywhere between the piled wood rows he has green grass growing at 2" height (give or take a 1/16") exactly 8' wide, and each an every stick looks like he carved it by hand.




He makes the rest of us look like deadbeats.

If its any consolation, MR wood carvers stuff doesnt burn any better and though 3 out of 4 housewives probably refer their husbands to him, he is probably making less per hour than you.  

The right way to pile wood dispute is pretty dumb to me.  The obvious answer is off the conveyor, into the dump, and onto the customers lawn just as soon as they pass the cash.  On to the next one.

 Oh... let's just say that's live power strung across the creek to power a couple RV's 😂  These landowners are literally from Transylvania, the monkeys green. 👍

 Rain, rain and more rain. One of my pit guys actually got a picture of a rainbow ending at the bottom of the pit road today, no pot of gold to be found. 👎


 
Poor skidder hasnt had much but grease lately, I try and get iron in for a bath and maintenance every couple jobs.


 
My 13yr old told me this morning he was "taking the day off to play video games", guess how that worked out for him today 😂


 
The firewood just isnt out there this yr, everyone is screaming for wood but I cant feed the monster fast enough.




A logger I know who works for Gutchess posted this, I thought it was funny so I had to pass it on. 😂

Always enjoy all of your posts and pictures. I envy you guys that get to be in the woods to make a living. Im hoping someday I have enough work lined up that I can walk away from the factory job and sitting behind a desk. Drives me crazy but it pays the bills. Not cutting much now. Waiting for cooler weather to start cutting basswood and hard maple verneer and saw logs. Keep the pictures coming!!

 As much as it seems "great" I honestly dont advice anyone to go cutting wood fulltime for yourself unless your looking to starve to death. 
 That being said 😂 I got my 460 dropped off tonight and started yanking my loader out thru the mud.

Skeans thanks for the pictures!  You can see the "dry" all the way from Virginia.  Hope you get some, not too much, rain soon.  

What's the harvester and what type of forwarder is running behind that?  I assume it is a pretty heavy thinning going on, how hard is it to forward in such a dense stand?

Its the 1270G with a h415 head harvester, forwarder is a TJ 1210B. Stand is roughly 400 TPA were shooting for 180 an acre yarding in these type of stand is super easy especially cutting 24s if it was 18s & 16s itd be miserable with the amount of saw logs coming out. Should be interesting in the near future theyre wanting us to cut 36s and 32s have to see how the forwarder holds up.
