    Was like watching paint dry.. he should have cut in a better place so his leg and foot were clear of the log and buttress. Not enough side bind to worry about. Buck it like you mean it. Like what Stig said.. lack of experience shines through here.

    I would snag that Ford. CA is short on deals like that.

    I think Rich and Brian got it right. He did look like he was making it up as he went. He changed his stance lots of times. Stig, I'd be skittish because I don't make many like that. It looked some of the time like he was almost "under the load" if the tree let go then.

    I'm loving the Duramax in my little bucket truck. A Chevy C5500 would make a nice small chip truck (below CDL). Something like this, maybe? https://orlando.craigslist.org/ctd/d/2007-gmc-c5500-duramax-auto/6313715594.html

    GVWR for the Ford is 15K, the Isuzu is 14,500. Actually the Ford has a 144" bed. ;) The other dump bed is either 12' or 14'. I need 84" from the cab to the rear axle for it to fit. Advantages for the Ford are that it's ready to go now and can tow my dump trailer easily if needed. Advantages for the Isuzu are more maneuverable, better fuel economy and lighter footprint. Will have a better idea after looking at them closely.

    That's all I saw as well. Guy had no idea what the risks were so he was afraid of everything. He was trying to figure it out as he went because he sure didn't know what to do next.

    Why? He has a tree blocking the log from hitting him. I simply don't get all the fiddling around with wedges and cutting and cutting. It is a simple log with top bind. Most loggers I know cut those 10 times a day or more. Do a reaming cut from the top, untill you can't keep your saw free, then trip from the bottom. Move on to next tree. Loggers have to save the saw log, this guy can let it split in a billion pieces and nobody will give him a hard time about it. Am I totally missing something here. Jerry? Burnham? Lil' help, please.

    He definitely looked skittish...but I would, too, if I was making that cut.

    I think you are a bit too modest, Stig. But then the really great tree guys rarely brag. On another note, I think I found a nice little chip truck for my little chipper. A 2005 Isuzu NPR diesel. Only $6500 but it doesn't have a dump bed. A towing company owner I know has a used dump bed he will install for $2K. Here's the ad for the truck. I'm looking at it tomorrow. https://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/d/2005-isuzu-npr-flatbed/6304531235.html

    No idea how to make one. Not much of an arborist anyway, most of the guys here would make me seem slow as a snail, I think. Logging is where I shine.

    I have farmed with horses when i worked in Schweiz in the 70es. They used horses on the land that was too steep for tractors. I've pulled logs out of the woods with them, too. I like horses, but they sure can't compete with tractors on level ground. I just thought you'd enjoy that video.
