    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..........:cool2:

    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 :laugh: 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.
