I "measure" the inside gap by sliding a short section of chain back and forth. I keep tapping as long as it still seems sloppy. If any section starts to get tight, then I wedge it back open a tad with the scrench. It's not overly scientific, but seems to work for me. My experience is that more smaller taps works better than fewer harder whacks.

Put a new bar and chain on and see if it makes a difference.

I've had good luck with the Husqvarna bars, on average We get 80ish cord out of one before replacement.  I have all my chains sharpened at a local saw shop that uses a fancy auto sharpener, it helps keep all the teeth same length. We average around 7- 8 cords between sharpenings. They charge $8 a loop to sharpen, and I pass that along to the customer. My machine and my two small saws all run the same chain, so I usually have 10 or 12 loops on saws and machine, ready as spares, and at the shop

I would try a new bar and chain too. It's the cheapest and most painless part to r and r. 

When I bought my Dyna and the original owner had replaced the .80 gauge harvester chain with a .063 gauge chainsaw chain. I picked it up from an auction yard sight unseen so I've never talked to the owner, and had no way of knowing or reason to think it had an incorrect chain on it. The son of a gun cut exactly like you are describing. Chain is sharp, it is ripping right through the wood and it would just stop. No load on the engine or anything. It was driving me NUTS!! Finally, in desperation I ordered a new bar and chain (even though I assumed there was nothing wrong with the original, the machine only had 35 hours on it) It wasn't until I pulled the OE bar and chain off I realized that the chain was too narrow. Problem solved🤷‍♂️ 

 Anyways I may sound like a broken record, but it doesn't take much off balance wear or a widened bar groove for funny stuff to start happening.

Quick update. 

All regular customers are stocked up. We are just working up oversized wood now, and getting our ducks together to build a woodshed or two...on a budget. 

Last weekend was our towns annual Holiday Parade. When we started participating in it 25ish years ago, it was the Christmas Parade. We have taken about 6 years off, work obligations, kids, change of parade time vs cows to milk, just wasn't in the cards.  This year the kids are old enough, and the farm had someone to help with milking, so we did the parade. Despite mother nature dropping a bit of precipitation, all went well. I didn't get many pics... sorry :(

This is my new ride for this winter


 


 

and, one of the 3 or so pieces the farm put into the parade



I really should have got more pics, but the parade started at our Highway Barn and I was kinda busy helping here and there...and visiting

Enjoy the new ride! From what it's looking like so far here in the Northeast, you're going to be spending a lot of time in that truck. :)

Firewood biz down this way is going full bore. Prices per cord have inched up to about a $300 average; more for longer delivery. With the exception of a couple species, the log market is pretty soft right now. The result on the firewood side is that loggers are more than happy to feed the processor guys as much as they want. Log loads are $1000+ around here.

20 cords of 100" is $2,000-$2,200 depending on the supplier. There's a large DNR hardwood sale 3 miles from me that I started getting train loads from Wednesday for $2,000.00. Going to stock up.

I guess "load" can mean different things in different areas, huh? :)

Around here, the log loads I'm talking about are 9-10 cord. Prices avg $1200, going up with distance traveled. Local and "who ya know" can still be had for $1000.

A typical load here is 12 cords. $100 a cord or so, depending on species.

Spike, I think you jinxed me! Got 30+ hrs since Thurs, mostly in that truck.

We have been right around the $300 a cord of green, cut and split, delivered for most of the fall. All new customers were at that price, and come spring it looms like I'll be above that.

Last spring I was around $100-110 a cord for processor type logs. Summer to fall has been $125. Starting next load it'll be $140 a cord. Come to think of it, that's what I used to charge for a cord of pine campwood...

I know I could find log length cheaper, but I have a good relationship with my supplier and when I venture to other outfits, I usually end up with more rejects, or more logs to do by hand. In the end, I'll pay that little more up front and have less waste or easier work.

I'm jealous of you folks and the prices that you're getting logs for. Where I live (western, central NH ) the prices are running over $200 a log truck cord. Also I was told by a friend with a processor that the loggers who are working around here have or are buying processors and some will not even sell loads at all. I know loads seem really tough to get since this past spring for some reason. All the best to you folks who have it available and cheap. Enjoy it while it lasts.

In this area, the loggers usually claim 14-16 cords on a truck. When it's all cut and split, we find it to be closer to 12-13 delivered to customers. Some of the difference is logs versus splits, some is rot and scrap. And some is probably our generosity loading the trailer. We'd much rather be a little over than anything under.

You'll always lose volume going from logs to cut and split. Logs just don't stack as tightly as cut and split firewood.

12%. We've calculated time and time again that it take 1.12 cords of logs to make 1 cord (16" long pieces, split and stack to make 128 cu ft). 

With a 16 cord truck of logs, we produce 14.25 cords of split firewood.
