    This is none of my biz Stephen, so take it with a grain... but with the amount you guys book out, would the down time and maintenance be eased by investing in new equipment? A single large payment monthly could alleviate shit tons of headaches. I only ask because I'm in the same boat and Thinking about leaping into new truck and stumper, as we got a new chipper last year. Granted new equipment will have problems, but maybe free up more time for kids, life, etc without the unnecessary fuxked up days...

    I ask for resumes and a cover letter through email, no calls. If they can't do that to start, they're out. Next step is a full day, working interview. See what they got, then yea or nay.

    I flop Pondos regularly onto roads, concrete, asphalt drives... if the crown is going to hit, it's usually a soft landing, unless it's a big one with wolfy limbs. Definitely want to avoid the trunk hitting first. Log cribbing works well. I also like to utilize old tires and plywood.

    I shoot a line trough the top, making sure to hang over a couple decent limbs, then get the SRT line to run down the trunk. Or if I'm feeling lazy, just hit a lower limb and alternate lanyard/life line up (or free climb :O ) I typically SRT most prunes and just advance an SRT line when doing a removal.
