    You gotta have something to grab. Half inch just doesn't cut it for extended use. Oh, I tried it, and it has its place.

    Dropping, over the counter sales, is a bad move. My feeling about it anyway. I'm losing pace with the world, I guess.

    Flipline and spurs. Old school still prevails in the Pacific Northwest today. Brutal tough to hike 200 feet taking limbs as you go. Brutal tough.

    When Patrick and I started talking about all this, probably 7 months ago, I mentioned to the members that something was going on with the book. But I didn't say what. Well, yeah, here it is. Patrick did a mighty fine job, and I am most pleased. Thank you, Patrick!

    Brian, that looks like a good one. I had to laugh at trying to make a margarita in a cement mixer, that is not only funny but a very accurate depiction of what is going on. However, for what ever reason, the old bandit is a disc chipper and it just eats them up. Weird. The old one does have a much smaller intake and the rollers are not near as wide. John of course decides what to buy, and we have had a drum chipper in the past. Not sure why he is bent on the disc, but he is.

    so, here is the scoop, they are building us a new one. I guess you could buy this one if you don't chip palm fronds. We have had it since January and only put 400 Hours on it. Darn shame. Thing just did not chip palm fronds like Bandit and John thought it would. Bandit is a great machine but this one does not do what we need it to do and that is chip palm fronds. For the most part, this chipper has sat in the yard, all during the hurricane Irma clean up, it sat. Currently, we are using our old Bandit, and I mean old. 2006 with a million hours on it. Cranks up everyday and goobles up the fronds. So, we will either turn this one in on the new one or I guess we could sell it. It belongs in Michigan or somewhere up north where it can gooble hardwoods :)

    Mike Anderson treated his rigging like Gentry and would give them big bonus's every year, but he would never gave a timberfaller a bonus, because he even said, "A timberfaller can make all the money he wants!" Oh, but if you tried to prove you could Mike would cut the rate on ya. He did not like timberfallers.

    The last gypo I worked for, Pete Benedetti Logging, had a Cat D6 and a Cat 977 loader that he called his Iron Maiden. Pete stayed on the landing and loaded trucks. Dale Stanley was the Cat Skinner and then there was 1 choker setter, either Ronny Lewis, Jimmy Stipes or Eric Tubbs. Depending on which one was available. My job description, as Pete told me, was to make enough logs everyday to keep the rest of the crew working till quitting time. Now the crew put in 10 hours a day. Some days I would fulfill my job description in just a few hours, and other days I'd put in the full 10 with them. Even longer when closing up a job. Most were small volume but usually good timber. So they would go quick and off to another one. I recall between skids Dale would move logs for me, make lays, brush out around trees and even help by picking up a saw and start limbing and bucking, as would the choker setter. It actually made the work fun. Now I've worked for Anderson Logging, too. 6 yarders a dozen Cats, Skidder, loaders and 30 trucks. It was intense.
