Tool to keep firewood off the ground when using a chainsaw.

Are there any tools out there that will help you hold the log off the ground, when bucking it to length?


Answer

Yes, there is a tool that is specifically made for that purpose. It is called the Chainsaw Buddy and it attaches to your chainsaw bar. It works great for cutting smaller pieces of firewood. It can be purchased at Amazon for less than 30 dollars.





However, for larger trees, I recommend putting the logs on skids for the best results. This can easily be done by using a Peavey(pictured above) and rolling the log onto some skids. This keeps the log elevated and greatly reduces the chance that you will dull your chain by hitting the ground. If you don't already own a Peavey, you should. It's an excellent tool to have around, and every person that cuts their own firewood should have one.

I hope this helps! Cutting your firewood without having to sharpen your chain every 20 minutes makes for a much more pleasant experience!

buy youtube subscribers Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. youtube views

This is more like a holder for cutting log. This is in fact a good thought. I have been using a kind of holder, which I designed myself and it does not serve me well. I hope this can do the trick. Medical transcription companies

Cutting Firewood and not dirt
by: Anonymous

The WoodChuck is another handtool that allows a person to roll a large log over and raise it off the ground to cut rounds off for splitting later.

If the log is smaller and can be lifted, the woodchuck can be chained to a nearby tree and the log placed into the woodchucks adjustable jaw for cutting off firewood in any size you desire.

Cutting firewood and not dirt
by: Andrew

Hi,

I cut a lot of firewood and trees in general.

I have a tree company and like dumping wood chips on the ground and then cutting logs up on a thin layer of wood chips.

If you do not have access to wood chips, I have also used old pallets or just old sheets of plywood.
