    Another great vid Reg. I've done some solo work and obviously you have to pick your jobs to make it work, but the older I get, the more I like to have somebody on the ground. It sure helps on cleanup too.

    I don't think you want to disable the buzzer, the electric motor will quickly burn out. Basically it works to have power assist with key on, engine off. Then when you crank the truck the belt driven pump takes over. The lucas girling brakes are hugely overcomplicated and are just a general pain in the ass

    Depends on dimensions but if you can get the box and hoist for the right price and the fit is close enough, it's cheaper to swap. Too many variables for a yes/ no answer

    Sam, have you used a Gri Gri before? You need to be careful as that 10mm Reep Schnur will fall through the Gri Gri like water when it is unweighted. This can lead to unexpected slack at times.

    How full is the canopy when in full leaf? You might be able to have the size reduced (reduction pruning, not the 'topping' that was done to it), to reduce risk. The swing is on a suspect branch, and might be in a choking/ abrading situation. A chafe sleeve on the rope (tubular webbing) would be a help. You have soil compaction from the swing activity, and no mulch. Grass competition. A free-standing platform or 'treehouse' might be better.

    I'm pretty sure there is an electric override for the braking system. That way if your engine quits you still have brakes. There should be a relay you can unplug to stop the buzzer but that doesn't fix the issue. Could it be the hydra-booster?

    People don't like to pay other people to be lazy and stupid? That's not fair. People have a right to be lazy and live off the sweat of others.

    More rain. Dropped oak logs at the mill. He can cut 36", so, I'll be able to get full width slabs. He'll cut them in a couple weeks when he gets free. I'm in no rush. Don't know what I'll do with them. Stack them a while.

    Kyle, Canadian Peter / Raj is different than Wisconsinian Rajan/ Flushcut. Easy confusion.

    I'm wondering if its worthwhile to move a chip box and man-cab (possibly converted to mini/ stumper space) to a cab and chassis? My box is 4.5' tall, 11' southco box is functionally okay. Might be better to just try to buy a chip truck, or build/ customize a bed. Thoughts?

    Seems Ford used this problematic system for a couple years, including on my truck. It seems to have this Lucas Girling system in it. I'm starting to research it, now. My Elec. Brake Motor light came on. I'm trying to understand what it means and what to do. I just drove it for the second trip with an electric brake trailer, as it happens. Likely coincidental, not causal. So far, I've had new rear shoes, hydraulic cylinders, new front calipers, rotors, brake hoses. The front was in the last 2 years. The rears maybe 5 years ago. Seems like a master cylinder, too. Anyone familiar?

    I'll solo, but I make damned sute that my partner knows the adress and what time I'm supposed to be finished. Pretty much the same safety system we use in the woods. Reg, in the beginning of that video, the wideangle lens made the tree look like it was much closer to the house. I thought you were being extremely cavalier about tossing those branches. Then as you worked lower, things came into perspective. It was just such a weird experience, sitting and saying: " Don't do that you fool, it'll hit the roof" to the person on the screen.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Solo Tree Work in Climbing Forum
    I enjoy working alone. No distractions. A mini and grapple is important, in my market. Also, a number of put-on-ground-only customers also helps. I'd started a thread about it previously, for tips and such. Things like rubber tire chock setting on a hill, solo, etc. I enjoy working with skilled, safe, competent people. Rookies that want to do it their way are mentally-wearing.
