You should easily get $301 each for those.
Sawed 4 years with EZ Boardwalk Jr 13hp. I now have a 2004 LT40HDD51. Cooks Cat Claw Sharpener, Cooks Single Tooth Setter, a bunch of chainsaws, and an old chocolate lab.

When days turn into decades, minds wander aimlessly ;D   Poston:  Good stuff!  And yes, copied from a very smart business man, "if it aint on the wagon, you can't sell it".

You guys must have better logs. I just cut these 4 or 5 days ago and if I look closely I can already start to see some slight drying cracks. Maybe I should have used more Anchorseal.


You need a case of Bow Ties. I can get you a case for $300 from the Tule Peak Company in California.
I'm thinking......

YH,

   You better send them over to Tuscaloosa for an expert panels review. They wmay want to use them to rebuild and improve that school they have there. We found some stuff like that in an old forgotten barn at Auburn and loaded it up and sent it to UA and improved both places. :D :D :D

   In all honesty somebody is still likely to buy that for beams or mantels or something. Its hard to understand people sometimes.
