    wow I'm really surprised I have never read about centrifugal systems. Cool. Really might have to try that.. Been thinking about putting together a remote system to clean hydraulic oil. This might work out well for that.

    Seriously though that is a work of art. I have always made gear strong without a consideration for looks. They nailed it with this one.

    Every hickory storm job I have ever done has twisted off like that. I guess with the crazy tensile strength they have it's the only logical conclusion. That or a rot pocket which I can't ever recall seeing in one...

    I spent $35K on this chipper Buyers remorse? Not even. Shit I just cannot believe how much this thing speeds the job up. We did 60 yards of chips by 9_30 this morning. Crushed a huge job...... Hydraulic tank gets way too hot for my liking, 170f but I'm putting a couple of oil coolers on the return circuits . Love feeding Brutus

    The process has been considerably slowed down by the potential cost of it. The design shown above is getting out of hand in terms of cost and we are re-evaluating it. The project is still on with Rock Exotica though, not to fear. We are also considering a slimmed down and cost reduced model hoping to get the retail price below $300.

    My prices may have dropped a bit on big removals but we do the work 3 times faster now so make more. Price drop is a result of trying to keep enough volume to feed Brutus.��

    Why oh why don't you wear com helmets??? IMO they are easily the single most important piece of ppe there is. Would have made this incident a non issue.

    Murphy I'm no expert but I would guess it's because the aluminum dissipates the heat so well ie the whole ring becomes the same temp so you have a larger surface area dissipating heat. The steel doesn't transfer it's heat so well so you have a condensed area of really hot material so less surface area but higher temps. Hence melted ropes..,.

    Yes he is short:lol: also ocd I believe, we told him to move the chute around to keep the chip truck evenly filled and I guess he can't see in the back of the truck so he stands up there. I have long since given up on trying to figure folks out. If it works I don't care, plus he is very conscious about not getting hurt, now that is a trait I can appreciate.

Biography:
I learned how to climb working for a very successful tree service in New Orleans in 1996. After working for that company for a year I decided to start my own. Didn't work out then so I became a professional firefighter which had great benefits but wasn't happy. Finally after years of dragging through my days I was forced to make a choice. I decided to begin working for myself which led me to climbing again. Started new business in 2011. I am no longer a "hack" ;) I am a State Licensed Arborist who is learning to be a great Arborist!
