Enjoyed both the videos. What a great use for 2x4`s. Quiet and efficient with no screaming chainsaw whine and wood chips flying everywhere. Would have to be careful about watchin that saw work and the rythimic sound it makes as it would be easy to get lulled to sleep. Neat train. What fuel do you use?
