Poetry. Talk about the dignity of labour. I'd feel very dignified operating that.

No photos sorry, but a relative has built a bigger one down this way. Similar idea, but it takes much larger logs than in that one, has a massive hydraulic guillotine to chop the log instead of a chainsaw, then shoves the round through a square grid. Incredible machine. Mounted on a truck trailer, couldn't get this one on the front of a bobcat! I believe the biggest problem with it is actually finding logs large enough to make it worth starting the machine.

We're going to solve our logpile problem by getting a pellet fire.

I sat transfixed... couldn't stop watching it imagining selected members of the National and Labour party (and ALL of the Greens') caucuses going through it. Then I watched it again....! Cool!

Ok ok.... I know the correct word is 'cauci', but for the purposes of clarity, etc..

Oh, and I LOVED the way the operator shook off parts of Sue Bradfords's head when they threatened to get stuck in the system... :-)

Dave Mann, we know that's not you: that someone has, erm, hacked your blogger profile.

Roffle.

OMG, Yes Clunker..... seems someone just made a tangential pseudo death-threat in an indirect manner on my behalf! Wasn't me! honest.... I was cutting firewood at the time. Shiver shiver...
