Thread: Skidder

  1. #11
    Yeah work when you are getting something done or making money is one thing work because you made a mistake or something broke that shouldn't have is something different.

    My dad does mostly firewood on our own land. He had a few hundred acres of wood land that he gets firewood from to sell. Recently it has been mostly clean up from last winter's ice storm. I don't know if you guys heard about it but northern MA and southern VT and NH had a huge ice storm last december. There were people without power for over 2 weeks and it destroyed a bunch of the trees so there is a lot of cleanup to do in the woods.

    I've never seen anything like that and my woodsplitter sits outside, thats something to think about.

    The little monsters needed to make it through the muffler or intake so for most types of equipment it would be harder for them to get in. The skidder has the perfect pipe for animals to go in. It runs flat across the roof then angles down and about a 45 and then there is a short drop down to the engine. So they could just hop on the roof and head down the pipe.

    The seeds were pretty well squished but there was no place for them to go. each time the exhaust valves opened it dropped more seeds inside until there were to many to fit. The thing has a monstrous starter on it.

    I am just surprised there was nothing dead in there you know they can get in but to turn around in there it had to be a small kritter

    Do you have a flapper on your exaust pipe.

    There isn't a flapper, since the pipe is horizontal it didn't really seem like it would need one. I am not sure what my dad will do in the spring time. Now the skidder is being used so nothing could build up

    He has gotten mice in the air cleaner before. They didn't make it back out so there were just dead bodies and a few skeletons. They didn't bother it at all he just found them because he needed to take the air filter off for some other reason.
