2016 Paul Bunyon Show in Ohio. Who's going ?
« on: September 06, 2016, 10:22:07 am »
 Well it's almost that time of the year for the Paul Bunyon Forestry Show in Ohio on Oct 7-9 2016.

 I was just wondering who is planning on attending this year ? It's a good time to meet up with fellow FF members and vendors  . I'm fortunate that its only 35 min to the west of me,  so just about in my back yard . I'm planning on being there on Saturday

We'll be going on Saturday as well. We're putting in a wood stove this year and I hope there'll be some vendors with some of the odds and ends we haven't bought yet like the hearth tools.

For those who are interested in any thing concerning forestry this the place .Everything to can imagine from giant tub grinders to cross cut saws .Chippers that can swallow a 3 feet diameter tree in short order. Band saw mills,circle saw mills  chainsaw mills .Firewood processors   that can spit out bundled wood in one fell swoop .

I can't make it this year, too busy .Perhaps some day I can run in the Ohio championship hot saws once again. You just never know about these things . :)

I am planning to be there Friday and Saturday. I really enjoyed it last year and learned a lot from Brian Bond in the classes he offered. I plan to take a couple of the classes this year as well. We will also be able to visit with our daughter since she is working on her PhD at Ohio State. I hope to meet some FF members while I am there.

Take the time and go!!! I have never been to the one in OH,  ;D but go to the one in Maine. I try to go both days. One to look at the logging equipment and one to look at the sawmills.
The 1000hp chipper is there each year. Really anything to do with wood is there and moving too.

  My wife and I will be there Friday. I've always wanted to go to this show but the school year calender kept my wife from getting time off. Now she's retired we have a little more freedom that way. Got a motel room reserved in Cambridge for Thursday night. We'll see the show on Friday and then go on to our daughter's in Grove City to visit them for a few days.        Depending on what the girls are planning on doing Saturday, I might get back for some of that day, too. Son-in-Law grew up in Cambridge, and his Mom still lives there. He might want to check up on her and then see the show in the afternoon??? Give my grandson something to talk about in school Monday, too.

Well, life has got in the way for me. I had my stuff in the truck already last night. I laid down about 9:00 and within 10 minutes was in severe pain in my lower left abdomen. Within an hour I was throwing up and in really bad pain. Had no idea what it was. Tried to walk tried to so what ever. 4 this morning I woke up Tammy and asked if my insurance was still in effect, she said yes, so I said I need to have you take me to the hospital. I have to think I am dieing before saying that so she knew I was serious.   Turns out to be a kidney stone and an infection among other things. My blood pressure was 235 over 105 when I got there from the pain. 

I'm home now, blood pressure at 130 over 75, heavily medicated waiting for the stone to pass. Sure was looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new, but I thank heavens that this happened a few hours before I was to leave, and not on the road.

Jeff, I sure hope you get feeling better real soon. I've missed the show for past 4 years being on the mend from my bout with colorectal cancer. I feel your pain buddy. Just get better and shoot for next year.
I've only ever met one FF member so I'm really looking forward to meeting some but not sure how I'll know one. I'll be wearing a green DblTree Belgians T-shirt so if any members spot me please speak up.
It's gonna be a good time with good weather Friday.

We went today and it was both more and less than I hoped. Overall, it wasn't as helpful to us as we thought because it's so heavily geared towards production/commercial-scale wood processing and we're anything but. There were nearly no products that had any applicability to what we do. On the other hand, there was lots of safety equipment on hand so it enabled us to try a bunch of things on. My wife got full-wrap chaps that fit better than the ones we could get locally and I found a pair of gloves that actually fit (which is a miracle, I have HUGE hands). Sadly, the chainsaw cut-resistant boots couldn't fit my orthotic insoles, so I wasn't able to go home with a set. However, being able to try them all there saved me a heck of lot of money in shipping back and forth.

I'm honestly not sure if we'll go again. Without much equipment for the homestead-scale logger, there's not much to justify the trip out there. I guess maybe if we end up looking for PPE again we might go back.

My wife and I had a real good time. Got to meet members DR_Buck and Kitty. Real nice folks. Finally got me a Forestry Forum hat from them. Also picked up a bottle of Blue Creeper. I've heard great things about it so I figured it was time to try some out.
Already looking forward to next year's event.

I wanted to keep the ball rolling and talk about what you guys thought of the show. I wanted to see the firewood shootout but I believe I missed the bigger models on Friday and instead saw the smaller class machines this morning at 10 AM. No big deal. Still very entertaining. And they still don't make 100% or even 75% "sellable" splits. I was impressed with a few vendors however. I thought Automated Biomass Systems had very competitively priced conveyors and a unique take on a tumbler "alternative". Both can be found on their website. We wanted to purchase their 32' conveyor with a few options on it which was priced close to $11k but someone beat us to it. After looking it over, I think it could be shopbuilt in a full weekend....We will see.....

I hate not seeing CRD at the show. I really like their machines and wanted to eyeball a new model just to see what they improved on. I also can't stand all the 2M Husky items for sale and a Stihl tent with 4 things in it. My head is too big for hats so that's 3 out of 4 Stihl options out of the question.....

The highlight was meeting OH Logger. We covered a chapter book worth of information in about 15 minutes time. I'm glad I am not the only one with a firewood sickness.... 

My brother, dad and I did 2 laps around the whole show and watched every machine in the firewood shootout. Very very cool stuff. Very big payments too.

I have a dozen or so pictures from the show to download off my phone onto the site. Mostly shiny new equipment. I took a lot of pictures on design of some of the firewood equipment too. I'm sure the manufacturers and vendors aren't too happy but I should have been an engineer for sure, not a weld inspector....

Toss out what you liked and didn't like about the show. I know it has one more day to go but report back!

The skid steer picture.  :D
shamusturbo,looks like you will have to wait until the Maine show to see CRD.  ;D
But I noticed that about the show in Maine. When I first started,lots of stuff for the small guy. I was looking at OWB and that made my mind up at the show. Last time there was only 2 OWB there. Everything is getting big and bigger now. They have forgot about the middle size guy.

I thought it was a great show too but its all what youre into. I really enjoyed meetin the two  shamusturbo bros. great guys to talk to and they have the same firewood bug as I do. must be highly contagous :D. it was cloudy at first but around noon the sun broke through and it turned out o be a nice day. it looked like  the cord king operater (salesman) was struggling with his machine and was getting frustrated. hate to see that but that is real life too ;D. agreed on the sllable wood comin out of the machines. why don't they make sellable wood cause that's what we really want to see. most of them were producing real short boiler wood. kinda stinks.  oh and double tree Belgians I'm from Pandora. hi neighbor

If I owned the company, and I sold a machine to someone in Ohio or for that matter anyone attending the show that already owned one, simply ask them to run it. They could put on a clinic, I'm sure. Some of the guys at the show have hundreds or even thousands of hours on some of these machines and know a lot of little tricks to making the most out of the pole because it is coming out of their pocket. Just my 2 cents.....

thecfarm -I can honestly say I have run all the CTL brands and there is nothing as nice, powerful, and as smooth as a CAT. So naturally, we but heads. Until he wants to borrow it....
They are definitely catering to the farmer/rancher/smaller sized landowner now more than ever. When the firewood processors started, they were all huge and they sort of worked backwards into most of the machines on display on Saturday. They are finally trying to fill a gap between a high end splitter and a processor that won't break the bank.

I thought it was a good show too, perfect weather, but was there on sunday for the first time ever...had only ever been there on Fridays in the past. A bit different when some vendors start getting antsy to just go home by mid-day.  Had no choice but to go on sunday this year as I bought one of the woodmizer mills ahead of time and had to pick it up and take it home with me!

My wife and I went on Friday.  Got to talk with a guy from Ohio that is a Portage and Main dealer,  lives near Youngstown Ohio .   That made the trip worth while for us as our current OWB is 11 years old.  Also saw a Polar furnace although not as up close as I would have liked (was mounted on a trailer).

Yep John...that was me...thanks for the congrats, it took a while.  So far I got it set up, sawed one tiny walnut log and built a log deck to stage logs, but then was out of town for 4 days.  I figure once I get through my pile of ugly "practice logs" I'll be on here all the time trolling for good advice.  Then it will be time to start dropping the nearly dead ash on the farm to finish the horse barn stalls.
