    I see that often up here, wide variety of trees. I'm almost sure it is squirrels. I've notices over the years if I prune it off, 3 or more branches will get the same later on.

    I'm thoroughly pleased. I think the knife gap is a bit large right now but I have the specs in the owner's manual I got from Morbark. I want to bend a metal plate the proper thickness to use as my feeler gauge to set the gap. No more fuel leaks, new belt is properly tensioned, it runs awesome.

    I have seen that and it makes me chuckle. I suppose I could add 3/4" IR impact and a plasma cutter to that list.

    We use to have bottle rocket fights, dirt ball fights, bb gun fights, snow ball fights, and use to hunt one another with blowguns in the woods. No rock fight tho I guess there weren't any around. :( It was me and my two brothers, the neighbor kid, and the other neighbor with two sons. Oh the memories! In the drought of 88' we were shooting smoke bombs out of wrist rockets and set each others yards (grass) on fire, yeah that didn't go over so well with the folks.

    Just bid it into the job and have the custy pay for it or at least most of it. I got a four footer that was used for three holes three years ago and that's it. But it made its money.

    Not much logging at all around here. The last mill I knew of around here turned into a subdivision about 20 years ago. A couple years later the place by the railroad tracks that bought pine logs closed down. All urban and suburban work here. Good news, I got my title last night! :boogie: I hope to get to the tag agency this week and deal with that, along with renewing my tags on my three commercial trucks. Over $800 for the three truck tags plus sales tax and the tag for the chipper.

    Wood sides are cheap to build, especially if you have a mill ;) Makes it a little harder for.pilfering. quick removal for in case. I've strapped the sides on top of hauling mill wood or logs as needed. My white one could be made into a dump pretty easy. The red truck, not so much. But not impossible. That was originally the plan. And build a box. But then I found a couple trailer deals I could not refuse. And they really rock for hauling. And since we had 200,000,000 dead trees to deal with, hauling was in our future. Clean up is tantamount in this business and where you can lose your arse if you are not efficient about it.

    I'm just talking back-up. Very plan B. If I had a flatbed, I'd have simple sides in any case. If you have to unload, the sides come off. Unloading, downhill, into three piles isn't very hard. Nothing beats a dump bed, overall.

    Mick! replied to a thread Flatbeds in Gear Forum
    One of my first jobs in this biz was for a guy who had a flatbed with fold down sides. We used to have to put the sides down and stack the brush carefully lengthways to maximise the space, then when we got to the tip site there were a couple of long sticks with forked ends. These were used to push off the brush from the side. The worst was when space was getting tight and we’d have to start slashing it up with the saws to get it all on. This made the unloading a lengthy and arduous process. God bless tippers (dump trucks/trailers)

    Interesting that every species is at all time highs in your area, that is mighty good news. Re your last line, I would say humans who show no respect for life by committing animal cruelty repeatedly and posting vids and photos of it and bragging about it, definitely have earned the right to have their lives greatly devalued. Virtually nobody likes animal cruelty and personally it drives me nuts. And apparently it is a fact that people who are cruel to animals typically over time move on to abuse of humans/domestic violence. From my armchair, those guys are a scourge to life, we need more sharks and fewer humans like those arrestees. Briefly re sharks, my understanding is that the worldwide steep decline in shark numbers due to finning, by-catch, and persecution is causing havoc with the ocean food chain cuz fewer sharks means more abundance of their prey which means less abundance of their prey which means trouble for the base of the food chain, which means trouble for the good ol human race. I'm told sharks have been around for 500 million years (longer than trees) and have survived the multiple mass extinctions, which shows their integral place in the ecosystem/food chain. Jeopardizing their existence does the same to ours. The old unintended consequences routine.

    A flatbed can't that easily be used as a backup chip truck. I mean you have to build a box and unless it dumps....... I had the f550 flat deck and a f350 with a chip box/dump. Besides the forestry bucket truck guess which of the other two trucks was in the starting lineup? My flatdeck sat most all of the time. It was handy for hauling plywood, bettter than a chip box truck. Besides that? It is my opinion while a flat deck has many uses it doesn't make the greatest tree truck. Even with little sides on it at best it's wide open unsecured and often slippery storage. Everything that gets put on it is in plain view usually. Making it not great for rigging, hand tools, saws or any other bits that can easily go walking. if it's kept as a true flatdeck anything that's loaded on it needs to be strapped. Making it not handy for wood. As soon as a flatdeck becomes a box it's a lot more handy, but then it's not a flatdeck.
