Called the guy with the 225 in need of TLC. Well, it's pissing oil in the middle cylinder. For 5000, he says it's worth more in parts. Myself, i'd rather have a four stroke four banger. Than a 2 stroke three cylinder.  :(

Satamax - have you looked how you can preserve the trees/ logs  after you have cut the trees down? Is it possible to get a contractor  (with a tractor) to cut down down 10 trees,  three times a year and put 10 trees in a pond or under a water spray until you are ready to saw them?

Thanks a lot Riwaka. But this is way too expensive for me. At this kind of price, i'd rather buy a real skidder.
