    To my knowledge they all free float when you are not applying pressure to them

    PCTREE replied to a thread Big chipper in Gear Forum
    We have two chip trucks and that is the small one, thinking about taking the boom off of the knuckle boom truck and extending the bed from 16: to 20. We do make a lot of chips in a hurry. Cory the chipper has a hydraulic jack and I lowered it all the way down and put jack stands under the feed shoot and thought jack would lift it.

    Not sure what an artifact is? In person you can really hear the difference. Regular chippers are just "bang bang bang" where these have such a smooth "Swish"sound. Just smoother is all I can say. Sorry but yes Cory switched out the axle, easy peasy, only surprise was the tongue jack wouldn't lift the machine !!!

    Anyone notice the "swishing" noise of the blades or is it just the crack talking to me.

    Seems like the spar that broke, the rigging point was lower than where you were cutting. If it had been higher, less force. But that piece that broke probably weak anyway. Better rope running might have helped. Add it all up in physics, force won. Kudos on everyone living another day.

    Mine does have a rotator, nothing like swinging the brush around to stick it in the chipper.....

    The whole point of a BMG is it rocks at doing tree work. It was designed by a very smart tree guy with a flair for practicality. It will pick up weird shaped wood but more importantly IMO it will drag your brush. Think about that a second, no more dragging brush. I haven't dragged brush in years, if I cant get my equipment to it I don't do it. The only way to make money in this profession IMO is to mechanize. You have to be smart about your purchases and research what you are getting. Mick your grapple looks nice but you can only carry as much brush as it can lift and only as long as your thinnest access width. A BMG will skid a 40' top through a 10' opening..... I know different markets...

    Back in Cali. Started my LTO class. And since any tree work I have done does not count towards my hours of 3000 I need for my application, I'll have to take a lessor rated restricted license until I can accumulate those hours over the next 2 or 3 years. Basically, a firewood type harvest license. Oh well, getting an education for when it comes time. At least I know the players and the game better.

    As Willie says call Dave Norgard and get a BMG. Its the original and best grapple and backed by an honest tree guy. EDIT just looked at TS site and yes it is a BMG on their site but please call Dave direct and get a better deal instead of giving money to Sherrill

  4. Hey Paul, I had a chat with Bounce (Sean Tait) at WesSpur after you & talked on the phone earlier today. They've finily completed re-working my Mesh Bag for a production version so it should be on thire website by the end of August.

    Sean said he'll be calling you next week regarding the possability of using the Mesh Bag with your Ropetek Wraptor Package.

    I'll be talking with a few of the local tree care companies in my area and if I get enough interest, I'll be sure to take you up on your offer of borrowing one of your Wraptores for a demo day. Who knows, maybe I'll take the plunge & buy one from you. (any discounts on a used demo Wraptor???) Likely be in the fall by the time I get everyone together.

    All the best to you with the launch of you very cool product!


    Bob
  5. perhaps you could call some day 4234004110

    This is something ive put alot of thought and research into its very very simple and its a viable product with no competition.
    It caters to a very large user group as well.
    Its low tech and cheap but it helps with ergonomics i think it will wash
  6. pete hey man , i have something im thinking about developing and id like to ask you some questions.
    My product is extremly simple and has nothing to do with tree work or ropes.
    I just dont know how to began production but im so confidant im willing to drop the $$$
