Yea,what are you doing with that stuff. ???
Looks like wood I haul out for my OWB. The sap wood is all gray like mine too. I chased down many trees like that on my land. One reason why I bought the OWB. I need something to burn dead wood in. I have my eye on a few more that are not going to live.

This wood was felled by the landower over a year ago as a select cut. I have four different sorts, tree length firewood, pine pulp, and saw logs and some freshly cut oak saw logs. I dont have a place yet to sell the blue stained logs im thinking its going to be tough. The pulp place has a max of 20" so anything bigger has to go somewhere else.

Yeah,you need a special market for blue stained and maybe wormy pine.The pine borers make quite a racket when they get going,probably won't hear them over the sound of the skidder,tho.

That wood behind the skidder is all quiet now. Those bores have come and gone. Too bad that guy did all the felling. I have no idea how much is on the ground,but that cost him some money. ???
I'm sure no expert,but that looks like more than a year to me. I know,you are going by what he told you. My pine is worth more than hardwood to me.

Yes not going to be easy to find a buyer for the blued saw logs. I totally agree the smart thing would of been to hire me to do the entire job start to finish. I also agree he lost alot of money by doing it like that. This job is 20 acres of 400 available. I estimate about 10,000bft maybe a little less of the blue stained logs 20 or so cords of firewood and about 4 to 5 tri axle loads of pine pulp.

logman,I've sawn quite a bit of pine that was not fresh,most all for personal use.Yes it was blue and yes there were worm holes but mostly in the jacket boards.You could try CL,someone like myself in your area might be able to make something out of them.Good luck,it's time you caught a good break.

New to the forum, like to say hello!! I was curious if you had pic of the brake band that you put in. I just got my brake and refurbished and there was no back tab on it. Had a new one made but have no idea how it originally was in stalled.

Did you have the tab on back? My guess is mine never had one on it, my band was skinny on on side and brand new on the other.  I bought it used and looks like there should be a bolt in the back to hold it center. Thanks for the reply!!! Thought I was the only one to ever own a c4 till I found this forum!!!

A little back round. I was skidding a load of logs out and the motor died like right now. The bracket that holds the sand on snapped.  My guess is there was nothing  to hold the band center on the back of the band and when it caught nothing good happened.

Thier should be slotted bolt on the back side to hold the band center. It is slotted because it is supposed to be safty wired to prevent it from backing out. Your repair should hold up as lond as your weld is good. I completely rebuilt my whole brake system and it works for me.

Probably try one of the NA forestry machine parts suppliers. Measure all the dimensions to match up what they might have.
e.g Timberparts  Timberparts, used forestry equipment parts and components specialists

A local gear cutter could probably remake the gears necessary.

I got it slightly used from a guy that works on forestry equipment. Harolds in maine has them but super expensive. And the old c4 is doing what its meant to do.

I always did hope an old broach and hobb would cross my path at the scrap yard but it never did happen.
