That's a whole lotta greenery! Must be nice. Was looking at my trees yesterday and the leaves aren't even budding yet.

That's a lot of fire wood there. Hope you have a good log splitter.

Always wondered if Stihl was worth the money. I can see from those photos that it is.

I have a Husky 445 Rancher, which is probably 8 or 9 years old now, and was considerably less than a comparable Stihl when I bought it. It's performed well and starts after 2-3 pulls, although I've always used TruFuel in it, so no doubt that has helped.

This is the first year that we'll actually have an arborist company out. There's a deal with the Forest Service to split the tab on firewise work. The low hanging stuff has finally got even beyond my pole chainsaw; probably 12 feet or so. I'm not doing 2 acres of ladder work Once they get done, I'll drag it with the tractor to make it as fire proof as possible. Hoping this year is not as bad as it looks...

I have had my 048 and smaller since 1990, i have a nice splitter but usually still do by hand..... did a big pile 7 years ago by hand. 5 acres cleared across the street cut it up and brought it over. Back cleaned up before the rain hit last night.

You need lessons from @Karenwiz on how to load a trailer.

Just make sure you tuck your balls in when the hitch lets go.
