The "Cutter's Stump". The large stump of a recently harvested beech tree serves as a work place for the faller working nearby. He leaves an extra bar and chain for his 385XP, sharpening file, gas & oil, and a pair of gloves for further use as needed. Corey timber harvest; 4/04.

DOM:

Did ya happen to notice how many times this thread has been read?

We except pics of any make of machinery, I'm sure. ;)

From all the Forest Forums I've came across on the web so far, this is the best maintained one and a super bunch of folks.
