    They made some bad ass dirt bikes back in the day as well.

    The badge is still out there, but the Germans, BMW I think, bought them out years ago.

    Like so many precision manufacturers, they got started making guns.

    Then I remembered you are in Europe and not having to deal with the garbage that is called gasoline and diesel fuel, and the damage it does to small engines, like we are here in the land of the free, due to Uncle Sucker's fatwas.
    Nah, I have specific fuel for the thing, stuff that doesn't go bad after months of no usage. Not cheap though.

    so i built a klyv

    https://www.google.com/search?q=klyv...lyv+firewood&*

    pretty badass mashup between a 1.5 ton engine lift and mk2/3 vw jetta rear twist beam (so can pull like trailer)
    + vw rear springs; some elevator weights and a traditional hydro log splitter wedge

    chopped moar wood in one session than ever before!

    that was 5 days ago

    arm still in sling

    tricep $#@!ed at elbow; could be bad

    pro tip

    klyv good for straight grain; big knots = injury to self before klyv

    ps...typing lefty sucks

    Just a bad day altogether. Tilled a clients garden and felt back pain when I went to clear underbrush. So I figured I'd switch up and pressure wash the drive way. Damn pump went out on washer. Loaded up and by the time I got home I was wracked. Took Meloxicam for inflammation, ate a budder cookie and took half a hydro. Alternated heat and cold every 15 mins. for hours. Thanks goodness the lil' lady is such a good nurse. Now that it's morning I'm beginning to think it ain't a muscle. $#@!. On top of that the equipment that I was unable to load just got rained on in the morning dark. Double $#@!.
    Still, I'm not trying to one up presence. Unless this $#@! goes on for 3 weeks.

    Watch yourself brother.

    They tend to throw us out when we're no good for work anymore.

    Seriously, hope you're healing up.
