    Just like a lineman, gaffs n lanyard. The city's palm contract entails some 45K street trees, and the company I've subbed for the longest, had that contract for two decades. My longtime friend Brian did them with a bucket, averaging 45 trees a day. Taking over for him when he took vacations was not something I enjoyed, I hate buckets! The hairy ones are up there 80-90 feet, way over a 50 bucket, and you can see the old gaff trails goin up the high side! Lots of veterans say fug that. My trick was tyin the trunk to the bucket fully extended to add a bit more stability! Kinduva big no no, but it made me feel better gaffin up to a head forty feet further up! The only wash fans I've seen fail were planted on bedrock with a thin layer of topsoil that went over roots n all. There's a reason palms are one of the few trees left standing after hurricanes. They are amazingly tough. Jomo

    Lots n lots of wannabe climbers hair out on SoCal's most famous iconic trees. I'll never forget peeling butt wraps off wash fans on the beach of Coronado, when a huge C135 cargo jet came in low to land on North Island, dang wash off that thing bout blew me outta the tree!

    I haven't cut lately, been raining nearly every day. I only got 3 more logs anyway unless I cut some. I think I may have enough now to frame my truck shed.

    My ramrod could do that too. So if a tight turn was needed. You could make a straight shot across lawn to the one piece of plywood. Turn to your desired direction of travel and head off straight again.

    I would have no doubts that an articulated machine would be easier to do less turf damage with. But for me a seat that you have to get up into and sit on wouldn't have worked. I very much enjoyed the standing position and step on/off. So like when feeding a chipper as I described if a piece gets jammed up somehow or trips the feed bar or something. Step off and deal with it, step right back on. It's been my experience in work that once an ass is seated, it tends to stay that way. One of the benefits of machinery for me was less need for employees. I wasn't going to pay someone to 'run' the chipper while I fed it from a seated position.

    Wide turns whether it's wheeled or tracked. one also needs to know when a lawn is to wet to enter. The thing I really like is that I can spin around on a single sheet of plywood if I need to.
