    By leaving the tub in place (after attacking the bottom with the holesaw) I don't have to stack it and nothing falls out.
    I just toss it in straight from the splitter.

    I can easily fit 6 of them on the porch with plenty of room left for splitting kindling.

    Iíve been avoiding this thread as I really miss doing firewood.

    We heated with firewood in this house for the first 12-15 years. But then with the onset of RA I just canít do it anymore. At our previous house we heated and cooked with firewood for 8 years.

    Another issue is I just donít have any more available on my own property. I would have to get a permit from the state forestry each year and go fetch it out of the woods on state forest land without using any equipment. The permits are cheap enough at $10 per cord but....

    I still have about 3 full cord in the wood shed - use the wood stove for power outages and to supplement the furnace when it gets below zero. But I had to buy that - was $150 per cord cut/split/delivered when I bought that 4-5 years ago.

    Oak dunnage from the job is always a welcomed BTU treat to the woodshed.

    If you love that MS 391, you should try the MS 462. I stepped up from a MS 270. It does cut everything with ease.

    Hey Stan, I sometimes think of you when I'm doing firewood and wonder what it would be like if I couldn't do this anymore, (yes, I'm one of those that really enjoy putting up firewood). But then again, $150 per cord is an excellent price in our area.

    Absolutely. If I knew what Pro saws offered when I bought my ms270 I would never have purchased it and gone straight to a ms261 pro.

    So far I'm only running a 20" ES light bar. Makes limbing easier being 6' 2". My cuts so far have only topped out around 16". I can't wait to need to try a larger bar.
