28 years ago, I was foolish enough to purchase 30 railroad ties.
I had them around the house, garage, and shed.
Recently, to make life easier for 'future' Larry, I thought I'd get rid of them.
I asked my Nephew if he would help me
* dig them up with a pick-ax
* Cut in half
* Put at the curb for the Town to pick up
He said. "sure, OK"
Fortunately, I was smart enough to get the right tools
for the job and was able to do
all the work myself. My Nephew doesn't know how lucky he was.
I bought a Log-Lifter
Using this tool, I was able to lift the ties out of the mud,
and while lifted, cut in half with a rented chain-saw.
Only took me 3 days using:
* 2 Wheel Cart
* Chain Saw
My advise for anyone doing strenuous work, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TOOLS FOR THE JOB.Also, don't use railroad Ties for landscaping
I bought this log-lift on Amazon for $50.00. Money well spent.
4 ties cut in half.
The coveted Log-Lifter.
