How long would it take you?

Looking through some photo's I found these.

How long would it take you to burn all this?

I started burning this pile in Sept. of 06. I just got finished burning it and one more Triaxle load of logs.

No wonder my back hurts.

Before I switched to coal the 2 stoves consumed 6 to 8 cords per winter, plus we always had enough oil in the tank to run the furnace when the stoves were low, such as in the morning or when gone all day. We also burned the propane furnace in the kitchen to warm that up.
With the 2 coal stoves we are able to heat the house with coal only, burned less then 1 cord of firewood in the living room insert. No propane use, haven't used the furnace since I connected the stoker to the hot air ducts.

I could have the truck and trailer burned up in a few hours, but the pile of wood may take awhile. :lol:

Burn coal and you could build an Ark with all that timber.

Just yesterday I was looking at the woodshed stacked with wood for next year and thinking that a switch to coal in my hand-fired boiler might make life easier for me, as I am in my AARP years. I haven't quite overcome the German instinct in me to use free wood instead of $$$ coal.

My back told my instinct to beat it, my instinct put up quite a fight though. :lol:

Stokerman, Dave sold me a boiler on the premise of " why don't you just sell your wood?" Free to you might be some thing to somebody. :) Scott
