isn't the operator's seat on that splitter facing the wrong way?
I think I would have a stiff neck after the first cord.   Like the vice-grip lights, little night splitting action in them woods candle_smiley

I'm just glad you are not hauling that thing down the road in Maine. My wife would be a hollering at me to pay attention to the road and not what is going by me as the right wheels are kicking up gravel.  ;D

Is your splitter self-propelled, or are you just using the Ariens to power the splitter hydraulics?

Heard a commotion on the back porch. Opened the door to find the neighbor teenager stacking split, dry firewood on the porch right by the door. Me.. Appreciate the wood, but I have a years supply in the barn across the road. Him..Yeah, but it ain't on the back porch, you won't have to go out in the cold to get this.
What could I say ? I grabbed an armload this morning and fired up the wood stove in the house, feels good, it's in low 30's, that's COLD for Louisiana...

Fired up the snowblower, cleared a path for the Bota-Bug and hot rod trailer, hauled up a load of oak to mix in with the walnut I've been burning....


 

The Veteren's Day snowstorm here made bringing up da wood a little more difficult...

Since I am now "gimp" legged for a while, Grandson Ben came over and wheelbarrowed a few loads of firewood up getting ready for next week's cold blast. 


 
The forecast is below 30 for Wednesday & Thursday.  Burrrr !!!  :o

I've carried a few armloads of wood in for grandma in my days. ;)

I'm still filling the wheel barrow from my outside piles to wheel into the basement each day. I throw a couple sticks of hard maple into the fire box, from inside the house, in with the aspen and fir from outside.
Move'n on.

It's a pain in the back sides with this weather up and down .Then factor in the trailer load I have outside my garage was taken from a stack I didn't have tarped down .A little dampish .It's ash,I'll get into the shag bark and oak later when it gets cold if it gets cold .
It wouldn't be a problem if the frost were hard down on the pumpkin because I'd have fired it hard and built up a good bed of coals .This warm,again ,underwear  around the table, ainta  gonna go there . ;D

I'm envious of MM's firewood fetcher. My wood is stored in the barn 100 yds from the house. I have 3 grandsons and a wheelbarrow and grandma to encourage them...BUT
1.they all live 150 miles away
2. Two out of the 3 would have no idea how to drive a wheelbarrow.

Soo The power plant on my wheelbarrow is getting along in years (not to mention high mileage) I've had to acquire another tool..Yamaha rhino
