Cut down an Elm today.
« on: August 09, 2017, 08:58:16 pm »
This was a dead Elm and it needed to come down because of the wind and power lines. 
Plus I got some firewood.   

I used the Poulan 505 with the Stihl piston.   It sure does run.

Dad mentioned he still wanted me to drop those bigger poplars on my land with issues. I mentioned this a few years ago in a thread. Cant remember the name of it.

But any how a amish place said he would do it up in lumber for 50/50.

Guess I know what I am doing when I retire and hunting is done. Because I sure dont want to mess with them dang chiggers right now. They tore me up last week.

There could be 3 phase to the garage right behind the house.   The ladies husband had passed away last year and he was one heck of a mechanic from what I understand.   I have not been in the garage so I do not know for sure but I see the 3 transformers on that pole.

Generally speaking we have 277/ 480 volt wye .However you can see about anything .240 high leg delta,120/208 wye and 480 delta .My shop because I'm somewhat of an electrical mad man has 200 amp single phase 120/240 .Through a series of a rotary phase converter and several transformer I have 240 and 480 three phase plus 208/365 which is used in Europe plus and auto transformer 240 in 264 out to run 277 volt stuff .Because my 240 service  is closer to 250 volts it puts out around 270 volts .Jokingly I once told a bunch of apprentices that if I had enough transformers I could build a bolt of lightning .
