Now MY job, is to "catch" the pieces that are split and toss them into the bucket of the tractor.
Which is on par to working your obliques, your abdominals, shoulders, back, triceps, biceps and...well-a fully body workout. In my opinion, anyway.
SOMETIMES, my job is to keep the large halves that need to be cut again from falling to the ground. Because that would hurt! and my toesies and I have a special relationship.
After the bucket is loaded full up, Matt hops on the tractor and heads to dump the load into the truck.
Now would be a good time to mention that we own neither the tractor nor the truck nor the woodsplitter. Matt's parents graciously let us use them. So~you KNOW what Matt dreams about at night.
See?! He's trying to butter me up...
When he sees it just doesn't work, he gets his head back in the game and gets the load dumped and sets the tractor up again.
Oh~ you are saying "Ah. That isn't all that much work." I hear ya people and I have to say- "IT SHO' IS!" Because that tractor bucket gets filled up 4/5 times for a small load and more than that for a large load. That's a lot of wood to be chuckin', thankyouverymuch.
