How you can eas­ily and safely cut 1 cu­bic me­tre of fire­wood in 20 min­utes

NZ Lifestyle Block - - FEATURE -

THE IN­NO­VA­TIVE SOAR HORSE cre­ated by NZ life­style block owner Steve Blake­more re­ally lets you fly through your fire­wood saw­ing thanks to its patented hy­droclamp, turn­ing a hard job into a fast and easy one.

The easy-to-use hy­droclamp uses wa­ter as a move­able weight to se­curely hold a large bun­dle of wood, from large to small pieces, dur­ing chain­saw­ing. Var­i­ous lengths and di­am­e­ters of wood are com­bined in each load, with their butts se­cured un­der the hy­droclamp. Con­tin­u­ous down­ward pres­sure is ap­plied, stop­ping wood from spin­ning around – or fly­ing out at the op­er­a­tor – so your saw won’t jam ei­ther.

This pro­duc­tive tool means you can cut your way through a cu­bic me­tre of fire­wood in 20 min­utes with no need to re­fuel, it’s so much eas­ier than saw­ing one piece of wood at a time on a saw bench, and much safer than hold­ing wood in place with your foot.

Other great Soar Horse fea­tures mean you min­imise the amount of ef­fort, bend­ing and stretch­ing re­quired. At one end is an ad­justable idling box which firmly se­cures your chain­saw dur­ing load­ing and un­load­ing, and a tray catches the sawn wood so all work stays at a com­fort­able height.

All these fea­tures are greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by happy cus­tomers from Kaitaia to Te Anau, men and women of all ages on farms large and small.
