I believe it's a Wallenstein. That attachment is handier around the woodyard than I can even say. One thing tough, they are dangerous, especially with longer wood. It's easy to swing or pull stuff right into the cab, so you have to watch it!

@doc henderson It is a Wallenstein make. They painted it CAT colour. Best $5500 I ever spent.

Managed to get wood moved from a friends new house lot.  It has a longer driveway and a bigger house plot. I'm pretty sure I got 6ish cord of processor wood, 2 cord of ugly/tops that went to the farm for the OWB, and enough saw logs to make the trucking worthwhile for my buddy. I was able to cut and sort most stuff at the house lot, that'll save me time on the next step! All I owe is 1 cord processed up and delivered, in no rush, so I am happy. Spent 2 afternoons getting it done, still think I made out ok vs just buying wood in.



 Every time I make a dent in this pile, move a cord or two, loading up the brow or refilling my emergency log stash, another truck.load or two shows up and hides my progress!



 
I'm not complaining, it's a pretty good problem to have! AND, it's all paid for too! I had minor throat procedure done Thursday and really wanted to get this outta the way beforehand.  I don't like having too many things hanging out on my to do list!

We took most of the winter off from doing firewood, except and odd cord here or there. Got a bunch of wood piled up some great processor, some that'll be done with the chainsaw and splitter, and some that headed right to the wood boiler at the farm!

I ended up getting 20something cord of stuff from a fella making a new horse pasture down the road. Wasn't the prettiest wood(as far as feeding the Hockey Puck), but the price was right and it was close to home.Got two more to process tomm and then some family time, atv ride and a bday party. Stay safe everyone

over sized and ugly wood, waiting for a saw party!


 
loaded brow and shorts pile


 
my main pile of logs I'm drawing from


 
some sorting and trimming left to do, but the processor will ear most of these logs.  Wife told me a few weeks ago "No more log trucks n the yard til some firewood goes out!". She doesn't usually care, so when she says something I usually listen, mostly, sometimes ;D She didn't notice the six wheeler load of pine I brought in to make campwood...yet

Hey Granitestate, how well does camp wood sell? I've been thinking of doing some myself.

cutterboy,

Once I got into a campground, it was easy. I got a call from one person, delivered an honest cord at a fair price.  One camper (seasonal) tells there neighbor, they tell the next neighbor... I had 2 customers the first year, 7 year 2, figure just as many or more this year. I sell 18in pine at $185 a cord, 22in at $175 a cord.  I'm not the cheapest guy around, but I figure it's the same amount of work to make a cord of soft or hardwood, so I'm gonna get paid for my work! 

One of my buddy's that helps me with wood lives on a state road near a couple lakes/ponds. We'll run off a pickup load for him every couple weeks. He puts them in a bin at the end of his driveway, self serve, $3 a bin. His kid gets a buck, he gets a buck, and I get a buck from each sale.  I don't get rich but his little guy learns to keep the rack full and I get burger $

In my early 20's I mowed one lawn and did some yard work for a person. That person told her neighbor and I stated working for her. Than another neighbor came over and asked her about me and I started to work for him. Than another neighbor came to see him........  I was a busy guy!!!
At the time I had my hourly rate up there. But as I was told more than once, you never stop and the job is done right and quick. They was willing to pay for that.
They are willing to pay for it now too. Hard to find a good handy man now.

Me and the Predator 670 engine on the PTO unit for my processor have had cross words...again.  I thought I was having a fuel delivery issue, not that it'd be a huge surprise, I have a 5 or 6 gallon plastic cell that sits on the PTO unit, it's always real dusty & and saw dust around when I fill up, figured some junk my have got past BOTH fuel filters.  I blew the lines out and then blew the filter out.  Got her fired up for about long enough to get the air cleaner back on and she died again.  Ok, one more time, repeat the same process again.  This time all was good for about 3 min then, it just DIED.  Ok, one more time with checking lines, clamps, leaks, etc, all good to go.  I managed to get about 1/3 of a cord done and it was time to start dinner, do the rest the next day.  Next day comes and she don't want to start.  I checked fuel...again ;D, that was good.  Pulled a plug and turned it over, no spark  :(.  Ok, check the basics, cleaned up the flywheel and magnet, checked the coil gap, checked the starter switch.  2 hrs later, I need to walk away for a while.  My buddys dad came over today, brought his spark tester.  We unplugged both small wires off the coils, AND WE HAD SPARK!  kept working our way down the line.  Key switch tested good, so didn't the carb solenoid.  Came down to a wire going to the "Low Oil Alert Box".  I had tried unplugging the oil switch earlier but not this 3 wire magic that bolts on near the starter.  My buddys dad was concerned about running it without the low oil deal connnected, but I told him I was super thankful that it was up and running again and if the thing spit a rod out the side then I'd HAVE TO GO BUY A HONDA and that wouldn't be a bad thing!  After he left I had to put all the plastic shields back on and then got it up and going again.  Wouldn't ya know, it started surging, and running like crap.  Shut it down double and triple checked everything.  It came out of it after 20 minutes of running.  I've got it going with the oil alert box bypassed.  I think I can get a new one for $30, just not sure that this motor is worth it.  I'm starting to price out Honda's again, I know it'll hurt a bit at first but I'm sure I'll be way happier with a GX630 than this Predator!

  I had an issue with my GX670 just a couple days ago.  It went down on the outside cylinder.  Pull the plug wire and no change.  Dead on that cylinder.  Spark yes and the plug was wet.  Getting fuel...  Put in a new plug.  No change.  smiley_headscratch smiley_headscratch  Fuel at the end filter.  Lots of it.  I run two filters too ;D  Put on new filters anyway.  No change. smiley_headscratch smiley_headscratch  Fire it up and give it a snort of ether and it runs on two...  Then I find it'll run on two at almost full choke.  Off with the carb. I completely disassembled it, cleaned it, and put it back together.  I didn't find anything plugging anything anywhere but that was the cure.  What threw me off was the plug being wet and smelling of gas...  I think a piece of crud broke loose from the logs dropping in from the new deck, they fall a bit farther than they used to, and restricted the jet for that cylinder.  I've got the low oil shut offs unhooked on all my Hondas.  Just check the oil.  We lived a long time without such things  ;) ;D :)

Id also just delete the oil switch and give the coil whatever condition it wants.

thanks guys!  Corley, so the not running right deal isn't just me ;D.  I've grown to hate the Pred, I'm starting to squirrel away a little bit from each cord to go into a new Honda, maybe then I'll only need to do maintenance on the dang thing???

Mike, I like corn, but I HATE gas with corn in it! I should look into the little airport in Rochester and see if they have non ethanol fuel there?

As long as you can keep your fuel flushed/renewed by new fuel (and tuned properly) then it should be okay. If not on either (or both) welcome to the fun of fixing it.
Trying harder everyday.
