Electric Buz Saw

Recommended Posts

After I finished getting Conostga ready to go back to work I decided to deal with my 4 loads of truck length wood. Most it being small dia I put a carbid 14 inch blade on my chop saw.


After I had things working ok I took a break, think its more work and slower then using the chainsaw but I hate cutting little stuff in a pile.


After 4 hours I have this left to cut and the basement spot about half full.


The frieght roller doesn't work too bad, if theres a stub limb on the tree it'll hang up sometimes.

Over heatting the chop saw wasn't a concern as I'd cut til the wheel barrow was full with the last pieces on the table, then load the cut pile on the ground and move it to the basement, another 4 loads, that's about enough to plug the wood shoot so go down and stack it, then back to cutting. Tried using the tractor and trailer before but too much messing around, backing in the shop, on and off, easier to just use the wheelbarrow, only gotta go maybe 60 feet with a load. keeps me from needing to go to the gym inorder to stay in shape for when i go to work^ Started out with the chain saw this morning to cut the stuff too big for the chop saw and wound up finishing the pile with it. Something about chain saw = fire wood just works in my head. Here's a couple shot of my net results, about 280 cu ft stacked in the basement


small start on a second rick outside


Having a fire started to clean up the bark and saw dust lead me into spending all afternoon feeding it from stuff gone bad that needed getting rid of, plus I trimed up the chokecherry bushes for easier mowing and got a little sunburn on my bare back. What that ya get from some sun, Vit. D.?

I use too figure 10 cords/year, but I'm burning less since I added the shop and added R38 to most of the house roof, but, I haven't been here as much the past 5 years either, so I really don't know. Figure I burned about 6 this past year Maynard.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
