    Firewood or Slabs?

    Picked up a few sticks for the campfire today.

    Softwood Roger?
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    That was my first thought, but I didn't want to demonstrate my immaturity.

    OK, we see how you get them off the trailer. How'd you get them on the trailer?

    Loading was a lot easier and quicker - only took a few minutes - and as I was busy removing the canopy bows I was unable to any photos. However this rather poor shot was taken just after loading and shows the assistance I had and greatly appreciated.

    Exactly why I wanted to get them as long as possible.
    Am currently considering purchasing a portable slabbing mill. Have you had any experience with them?

    I've certainly looked into it and would love to, but havent had anything to do with them.

    The Lucas Mills Slabber certainly seem to be popular from what I have seen and the company at least are out at the Field Days a lot. They're expensive!

    One of my ex-students however did get a slabbing chainsaw with a massive bar. I cant comment too much on it, but it looked like it did the trick.
