My Woodsplitter Goes To Eleven: Part 8: Pics Or It Didn’t Happen
Some photos. I accept in advance the irony of being a man who makes fun of people putting their lunch on social media yet posts photos of firewood and flat tires.
A modest trailer load of small “cookies”. Taking the cookie to the splitter will never wear out your splitter tires. Also, loading a small trailer means you don’t have to lift the weight so high.
A modest truckload of medium cookies. No biggie but after a couple truckloads I start needing Ibuprofen. (Nothing says “classy” like a bag of chicken feed tossed on top of firewood.) I often carry have a truck and trailer of firewood at the same time. I’m mystified why I have photos of little wood on the short trailer and heavier wood on the tall truck; hopefully they were taken on different days.
Little tires (no lug nuts!) are the work of Satan. In this example the tire has “popped a bead in low temperatures”. This only seems to happen when the tire is parked many days in a row at temperatures around -25 or so. (If you plan properly you’ll never be splitting wood in -25 weather anyway.) This photo is unrelated to the patch job I did before “the event”.
