Getting to be about that time, the mowers are all bought, now it is fall renovation time! Good time to buy or sell a mower though!

Sure, why not. Which splitter and what size (tonnage) did you get. I like the canopy idea over the work area.

Yup, that EZ-Up is a nice idea. I can't see where you live based on your profile right now, but judging from the amount of wood you have in your yard I can only assume two things:
1: you live where winter is 9 months long

Or

2: you keep the house warm enough to walk around nekkid all winter long

Kevin it's a 37 ton Northstar with a GX270 Honda engine. It is an absolute beast. I've wanted one for years & finally got the green light from Kim.
I really didn't need quite that much splitter but I guess it was a Tool Time Tim thing..........

Skidpad.....lol....you'd think I lived in Alaska but actually I'm right here in good ole East Tennessee. We have a fire pit in the back yard that we use quite a bit. We had several severe storms come through our area a couple months ago so there were several places around town giving the wood away if you would just come cut it up. Mostly red & white oak with just a little soft Maple that I just took to help the guy out.

Eatonpcat........I'm sort of a more is better kind of guy In reality it will probably rot before I use it all up....

Nice splittler indeed. Yep, a little overkill for splitting for the 'backyard fire pit' . But hey, you never know when you'll get some +30" diameter wood to split. What saw(s) do you use?

Lol........everything I have is overkill. Much of that wood was over 30" & had to be moved with the tractor....

I have a Sthil MS250 & a MS361

Yep...that's the splitter you need for that wood for sure!

I've never ran a 361...but have read lots and lots of good things about it.
