    I must not be seeing things as they really are. I can't figure why most if not all of those couldn't be felled. Pictures never tell the whole story.

    Everything is pretty straight forward. Just have to make sure where water/gas lines and septic are. 4-5 can be felled. The remainder I plan on getting limbed and topped out and seeing where I'm at on time. Then felling the spars, setting pull lines if needed. Have a guy interested in what logs I can salvage. Have our small excavator with a grapple I plan to use for loading the logs. Sean you pretty much read my mind! Hopefully the man will go for my plan.

    What's your approach going to be, Denver? A 60' self-propelled lift and a heavy mini-excavator would put a hurt on those trees quickly, if not fell-able.

    That clip was discussed before I think. From memory someone knew who it was, apparently it was a leaning tree and they used a rediculous amount of force to pull it in the opposite direction so the top could be felled out. Pretty damn retarded move from the climber and was only ever going to end in pain.

    Getting them down ought to extremely easy. Picking up the resulting mess...not so much :).

    Working up a quote for these guys 15-18 marked to remove total. Haven't met the guy in person yet. It's a friend from high school father .I just spoke with him over the phone. Believe he has a new grand baby arriving so it was short. After going to look at them. I know I can't get rid of the stumps. That'll be someone else's baby. And it's possibly going to be more than a weekend worth of work so he probably won't want to drag it out over a few weeks.( I need to retire from sawmilling). Still gonna make up a quote for him. So we will see what comes of it.

    These help by magnetically sticking on the sides of the trailer, for when your trailer is narrower than the truck. Also helpful for aligning, if visible. https://www.harborfreight.com/magnetic-trailer-alignment-kit-69778.html

    I agree with what everyone else has said. If you do indeed get a trailer the longer the better. I personally wouldn't have one less than 12' long. I'd want to at least be able to see it looking over my shoulder while backing up if you haven't pulled one yet. The shorter they are the harder it is to maneuver ( to me anyway).

    The bollard is much, much better. The grapple will get beat up, and has a hugely tight bend-radius. You can attach to it easily, lift by driving back, then lower out on the bollard. It make it a lot more versatile. Pushing spikes, like the BMG has, are a good add-on. Wish the grease fitting/ Zerk was more protected on the BMG, all around, but definitely near the pushing spike. You will rock it even harder with those simple mods. BrendonV used to have a hydraulic capstan on his bmg that allows pulling from a stationary point, but he sold it. I've always thought that it would be pimp to have a capstan on the mini. His experience took him the other way.

    I think we have different definitions of " Heavy pulling", Mick. We use a 22 ton Dyneema rope and a specially made porty to anchor it to. Said porty just got pulled apart, I have to meet up with a metal worker on friday to have an even bigger one made.

    Bit on the hyper side. Have a tendency to overreact and chew a fleeing suspect into itty bitty pieces. Which is the reason they are not used as K9 dogs here. That was one cute picture. The safest owl in the world, probably.

    Depends on the rope. We use Dyneema for pulling, it sure wouldn't work with that.

    But here it's not a tank of natural gas, it's just hooked to the suppliers line. I hear what you're saying though. It'd be unlikely to lose power and gas I think. As long as there was some sort of dual fuel option so I could still burn gas if needed, that would be ideal.

    Propane/natural, either way, no gas cans hanging around to spoil.

    I see what look like potentially good deals frequently on Craig's List. Often units removed from an RV.

    Yah I've got loads and loads of berries in my deep freeze. As well as some meats and whatnot. I was doing the math last night and you're right Burnham the cost of the spoiled food alone (let alone the mess/inconvenience) could quite quickly justify the cost of a generator. I will probably keep an eye on the classifieds, look for a deal. Here we have natural gas so a propan one wouldn't be that useful to me. I'd have to fill bottles instead of jerry cans.

    I'd like a small propane unit. Never have to fill it, or keep gasoline around.

    Yes...but if you have a large deep freeze full of food, one time keeping that from going bad could pay for itself. We don't have one. Power outages are not too uncommon here. Longest I can recall off the top of my head was 5 days. That long is rare, but half a day, or a day...once or twice a year. A few hours is several more times a year. Being without power doesn't inconvenience us much at all, if it's less than a couple of days.
