    Wow, off topic after four posts. That must be some sort of record, thanks Mike. I know you've had a good run with yours Dave. What I really wanted to know was has anyone run one of these, seeing as I didn't get to yet. It was a fuse evidently, that's what I thought but couldn't find where it was. Got it booked for Monday so I'll see how it goes then. There was a guy using it one street away a few months ago on a big fallen tree, I was really busy here and by the time I got there he was gone but he sure put some stuff through it. Big pile of chips.

    They flooded us with bacon, not too much Aussie bacon around these days. If it's not Canadian it's Danish, put a lot of people out of business.

    The chipper only has about 100 pounds of tongue weight. We get by moving it on the jack, at the moment. I would like to be able to move my stump grinder/ trailer around. It has a lot more tongue weight (more than 10% of the trailer weight), when the trailer doesn't have a can of grinding debris. Its can go into a building, if I can roll it by hand. Too much trouble otherwise, and it gets tarped.

    Mick! replied to a thread Vermeer BC700XL Chipper. in Gear Forum
    They have to, the law says that to pull a trailer more than 750kgs you have to pass another test, so, as this industry uses younger people for the most part without the relevant licence, manufacturers know that these sell well. They use lighter components I guess, I had a sub 750kg chipper, with the same motor for 15 years, sold it for 3000. The new (ish) Timberwolf has a 8.5inch letterbox opening, still under 750kg, I used one in the UK recently. Brilliant bit of kit. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lBucZKrSM-Q

    How about this one? https://www.davidmorgan.com/shop/product/1247/driza-bone-classic-riding-coat/&ad_code=FRL_2778?gclid=CK_-nJqkxtMCFQKRfgodaa0E3Q If not, look through my google search link, I guess. I wouldn't have a use for a raincoat of that nature myself, so no personal experience...but I bet there is something out there just right.

    Burn, do you know where they sell a full length raincoat? Like a duster/whatnot? Down past the knee? All I can find are cheapos. I want top of the line... pure waterproof.

    If a rain jacket it all you think you need, either you are not really going to be working in rain, or you are not experienced in what working in the rain really means. Rain pants, or much better, bibs are an absolute must as well. In all my many years in the field, much of it in rainy weather per normal here in the PNWet, I have never found a single bit of "breathable" raingear that was worth a bucket of warm piss. You can spend several hundreds of dollars, and it may well work barely "sort of" if you're not doing much physically, for a year or 2 at most before the magical pores get fouled with body oils and dirt and it leaks under any really wet conditions...but even brand new, if you are working hard, it still will sweat from condensed body heat on the inside enough to make it very little different from having no rain gear on at all. Less expensive "breathable" options are only less money wasted, as I have found from many a dollar expended in wishful trials. So here is my hard learned advice. Buy the best full on waterproof stuff you can afford...offshore fishing gear like Helly Hansen is worth a look. I did better most times with lesser priced heavy waterproof lined nylon bib and coat sets, just because the likelihood of getting damage from abrasion and rips was high in my work in the brush, so a couple or maybe three years was full life expectancy. Wear synthetic undergarments...nylon, polyester, fleece. Avoid cotton undergarments like the plague. If it is really wet out and you have hard physical demands, take a change of ALL undergarments (not just underwear, I mean everything, all layers) to work and swap out to the dry clothes during lunch break. Give up the dream of staying really dry. You will not. You can only mitigate the wetness to some small degree.

    Yup.... it barely got the big stick...the next one, at least he was able to just barely lift it for me to make the two cuts at 32'10" each.... it was 99' long.
