Doug,
I fitted a pair of Ironman load plus springs to my one (what a joke) ton ute. Took around 20 mins to fit and makes an incredible difference to the handling both unloaded and loaded. Well worth the $125 price.

Last month was out with my old man cutting some timber. He had his "toy" saw out .....not his 4ft monster that think is scary specially when your dealing with a "widow maker" which is still standing.

I think the stuff we got was peppermint gum as well. Got 2 trailers loads, stripped most of the bark and and stacked it away to dry.

He woodturns a lot of redgum which would have been preferred but this stuff was dry, mostly off the ground - easy pickings.

He commented how its not as good but definitely less ash than the red gum.

Here is a shot of the firewood wall I designed and built over a couple weekends. It serves 2 purposes, one to store wood and two to cover a rather old shagged out fence. This part of the yard was a grown over nasty assed garden full of spiders and blue tongues. I relocated the lizards and the spiders are probably living in my firewood wall now. The wood oven is to the right of the shot under a newly built verandah. Was a lot of hard work - but I can say after a couple suckling pigs, hundreds of pizzas, paellas and roasts it was well worth it. A staff member of mine has access to 1000 acres of blackwood, stringy bark and other assorted gum on a farm in the Adelaide Hills - so the wall is always full!

The shorter you cut your lengths the easier it is to split.

Not if you have a 20 tonne splitter. I hired one and bingo. Split about 5 tonne of wood in 8 hours. Long lengths too. Pretty well killed me though! I got two fireplaces so it gets used pretty quick. You can get firewood from any arborist. And quality hardwood if you are prepared to wait. Its absolutely free, environmentally sound as it would only be chipped anyway. All you have to do is split it, and let it mature. Never understand why people buy split wood. Its around $160 per tonne.
