When my husband Ken died last December, many people asked how they could help. I was in shock and doing things like attorney, banks, taxes. I honestly can’t remember who offered to help with what. Now I need help. With wood – the jobs Ken did, and I don’t know how to do (see below). I have three piles of split wood about 40 inches that needs to be cut to 16″ for the cook stove. I have never run a chainsaw. I would like to learn. I learn best when I am not under pressure. So first I need someone to bail me out and then someone to teach me
I need help NOW in the following ways:
Cutting the 40″ to 26″ length. I can load a trailer. This is one pile
Here is the other
Moving the loaded trailer where it needs to be stacked with a tractor
and Getting the splitter running
Here is the equipment I have:
two Jonesrud chainsaws Ken used last fall
two Massey Ferguson tractors from the 1950’s that came back from the shop this spring
two trailers (now empty)
a splitter that was repaired a year and a half ago, but Ken could not get it started last fall
Can you help with the following?
Do you have a working chainsaw?
Know how to run one of mine once they are back from the shop getting a tune up? Can you teach me how to run a chainsaw?
Run a tractor with trailer and able to back up with a trailer?
Stack wood so it doesn’t fall over?
Get the splitter running or know who I can get to fix it? If not, could you refer me to someone who can help? If you need to be paid, please tell me what you charge. Thank you.
