Re: Firewood Processing

$225 for all oak- good deal , yeah why break your back if you don't have too! I think most of us cut our own because ( in some warped way!!??) we enjoy doing it. I could just buy my wood for a number of seasons with just the money I've invested in chainsaws!!!

That's without any doubt. I don't like Stihl too after one year of using. Now I'm thinking about Oregon Cordless PS250-E6 or Remington RM25PS Maverick 25cc 2-Cycle Gas pole saw. I have already checked some reviews about theese saws and it's time to make choice. Worth it or should I go on searching?

I would never buy a Stihl saw and one of the reasons is the flippy caps. Stihl's answer to something that was not a problem. A screw cap with an O ring has to be replaced with moving parts that break?

Absolute lunacy.

If one truly has to have a tooless cap, then engineer one like Husky did that is still a screw cap with an O ring. These even fit 20 year old saw too.

Re: Firewood Processing

I agree with the stupid Stihl flip caps... Love the Stihl saws but I hat the caps.
I've had nothing but trouble with them and new ones are not cheap.

Re: Firewood Processing

I don't know... I have two Stihl saws. Neither of them have any problems with the caps. I would have been fine had they not changed the design, but the new design works for me...

Re: Firewood Processing

I have an Echo CS 510 that's pretty good. I don't cut trees down in my yard. I've always hired a pro but we had some hurricanes in the past where as I had to cut some tree branches up that fell and place them at my curb for the county government to pick them up. It's a good size saw. Weighs about 12 lbs. with a 16 " bar.

I used to love cutting and splitting wood for the year. I'd find trees that were blown over and ask the land owner if I could cut them up and take them. I have gotten cords and cords that way along with cutting down standing dead at my Dad's mountain property. Not anymore. My back can't handle it.

Yes I thought so too! Thus the reason I'm going to get 2.5 cords next Sat.

I have no clue about the person I'm getting it from. All I know is I gave them the size of the trailer and asked for a price. $220 is what they said so................... winner winner chicken dinner.

For $220 I can supplement my propane HVAC system and save some money.

Re: Firewood Processing

I don't go and pick up wood any more w/the truck. I have log lengths (10 ft to 15 ft) delivered - you can get 5- 7 cord of green logs (mostly oak & maple around here) for a less than $200. there is a glut of logs now due to the ash beetle killing all the white ash trees.
saves your back and a lot of time that you would spend hauling it home. 7 cord is around 12 to 15 loads in a 3/4 ton w/a 8 ft bed.
once the lags are in the yard - then you can saw / chop at your own pace!!

Re: Firewood Processing

They charge $210 a cord here and if you want it delivered and dumped in the driveway its much more. If you want it stacked somewhere like on a back patio you could spend as much as $300 or more a cord.

that's awesome. There is a hardwood company 8 miles from me and they sell truckloads of "x-rayed" wood they don't want due to metal in them. last time I checked it was $500 a load for logs that made up 5 cords.
