    Excellent... I'll poke back through this thread and see what the consensus is on which version I should buy.

    Howdy, rfwoody! Where in North Mississippi are you? I'm in Columbus, small world! On topic... how "dry" are the packs in terms of condensation? I started thinking about getting a cooling vest a couple days ago, cheaper than building an office on the back of the Treemec. :lol:

    Someone here a while back said something along the lines of visualizing balancing a ball bearing on the bar to help get it level... that may help, it's stuck in my memory for a while now. I'm not terribly worried about making sure it's dead horizontal; also, the floor/back cut should usually be perpendicular to the trunk/wood fiber, not perpendicular to gravity.

    Got the Mek plumbed to run the trailer's air brakes and the electrical connector switched to the correct connector... tomorrow is the maiden for profit voyage! I've gotta size the reservoir and I'll be adding a power pack to the trailer to handle dumping it and supplying power to charge the battery that will run the strobes.

    Nearly everyone has an estate of some fashion, even if it's a negative worth. An estate is your money, possessions, and liabilities (bills and such) at time of death... not exactly, but close enough.

    It shouldn't be a big deal. It could pass through your estate via your Will. There will be procedures in place with your domain hosting/website hosting to transfer ownership/admin rights. If there were survivorship rights that allow it to pass directly vs going through the estate, that would be ideal (probating the will can take months, plus any outstanding bills your estate has could try to use the House as a means of collection). The idea of survivorship rights comes from my my stock trading account, which has my wife set up with survivor rights so she will have legal access as soon as she can prove my death (with a friend and accountant having been asked to help her with any open positions at that time) vs it having to go through a probated will (she made need access to that money while waiting the 4-8 weeks for the life insurance policies to pay out). If you want, I'd be happy to help figure out the easy way to convey ownership. Having the issues (mainly) figured out before hand seriously helped with mom and will help with Dad.

    I've wondered if you had a plan for that eventuality. Old picture! I should have been 14 there, thinner for sure! On that note, as of this morning I'm down 16lbs, ways to go yet.

    Eaton 8LL, 405hp Mack MP7 engine. We will use the trailer behind the grapple truck from time to time also, like I mentioned in the other thread.

    lumberjack replied to a thread Big chipper in Gear Forum
    Putting my picks in the grapple truck would be inefficient in terms of speed as well as being able to pack the truck. I did just buy a 48 yard trailer to go behind the Mek to put picks in as they come down... with the idea that the Mek can do some jobs solo. Also the trailer can go behind the grapple truck to give more capacity in certain applications. My PK40 boom is no match for Paul's crane in terms of lifting power at radius, but it has other advantages which to me make it far more worth it. For what the Mek cost, I could have bought quite a boom truck or even a nice, small AT crane. Either require a 3 man crew at a minimum, which doesn't do it for me. One huge advantage is how quickly you can set up to work since you don't have to be particularly level. With a helper we can have the outriggers set in a couple minutes, boom deployed a couple minutes after that. Another benefit I'm learning is the super small tail swing of the knuckle boom's turret with no counterweight in the design. Notice how close I am to the eve of the building below. Scott traversed from the roof to the seat of the loader at one point. They claim a PK200 is designed to compete with a 60t AT crane (1500lbs at 140', for example, my boom lifts 1500lbs at 70'). I'd like to have one, but I'll have to work up to it ($700k estimated). Here's some of the bigger pieces of wood I've picked so far. Nothing crazy, but still a decent sized piece of wood. Getting the trunk off the building, I lifted the tip and rotated it past the side of the building and set it down. We cut it in two and lifted the pieces out individually.

    The idea is the pieces the Mek cuts will go straight from the tree to the trailer, and on smaller jobs the G truck can stay at the shop.

    Picked up this today to go behind the Mek. Adding the trailer brake plumbing to the Mek over the weekend, hope to put it to work next week perhaps. I also have to add an engine/pump to the trailer to dump it and run the jack (previously powered by the towing vehicle, I don't want to risk contaminating the crane's system). Dual 15klb axles.

    Phone lines are easy peasy, two wires, put the wires back with the wires you found them with and all is well. There can be studs in the box that connect the house wires to the service wires.
