That’s awesome! What chain saw are you using? I’d love to get into the killing if my own wood but no clue where to start

I think I’m about to invest in a smaller version of your set up and I’m stocked to be able to start slabbing my own lumber!

I’ve contemplated many times investing in a similar setup. How long did that last cut you show take? That is one thing i’m curious about. Also, do you have external oilers setup to drip oil on your chain?

Looks like it worked well for you and gave you a nice, smooth cut. That is a huge log.

About 7 – 9 minutes per 9’ X 32” cut. Yes, there is an auxiliary oiler.

Isn’t it great when you see the first cut? Looks like some real nice wood. The tank for my oiler vibrated out today and hit the chain now I have to figure out how to patch it or make a new one.

Nice job! Now you need to make a video and put it on “YouTube”.
