    Back in the England I remember you were either polite or tough. Be rude , get slapped. I wish it was like that here.

    We have two chip trucks and that is the small one, thinking about taking the boom off of the knuckle boom truck and extending the bed from 16: to 20. We do make a lot of chips in a hurry. Cory the chipper has a hydraulic jack and I lowered it all the way down and put jack stands under the feed shoot and thought jack would lift it.

    Not sure what an artifact is? In person you can really hear the difference. Regular chippers are just "bang bang bang" where these have such a smooth "Swish"sound. Just smoother is all I can say. Sorry but yes Cory switched out the axle, easy peasy, only surprise was the tongue jack wouldn't lift the machine !!!

    Anyone notice the "swishing" noise of the blades or is it just the crack talking to me.

    The whole point of a BMG is it rocks at doing tree work. It was designed by a very smart tree guy with a flair for practicality. It will pick up weird shaped wood but more importantly IMO it will drag your brush. Think about that a second, no more dragging brush. I haven't dragged brush in years, if I cant get my equipment to it I don't do it. The only way to make money in this profession IMO is to mechanize. You have to be smart about your purchases and research what you are getting. Mick your grapple looks nice but you can only carry as much brush as it can lift and only as long as your thinnest access width. A BMG will skid a 40' top through a 10' opening..... I know different markets...

    As Willie says call Dave Norgard and get a BMG. Its the original and best grapple and backed by an honest tree guy. EDIT just looked at TS site and yes it is a BMG on their site but please call Dave direct and get a better deal instead of giving money to Sherrill

    Not sure about that. IMO whenever you move under your own power on a crane job it is down . Crane picks you up so where is the advantage of srt?

    I am a youngster at 48 but I am so glad I gave up climbing and got in the crane. I get to ride my MTB any evening it is dry out and don't dread huge removals anymore! For me climbing had lost its fun so was just a job. I really enjoy running the crane now. I think if you keep climbing too long you will really tear up your body.

    OK so for the update, had a job with a bunch of tough to chip shit trees. All these trees were growing out the side of a cliff and were loaded with vines just ready to fall on the business below. Decided it would be a good test for the Big Chipper ( we are still thinking of names, not sure "The Dominator" is our style). Our gig truck is "Burtha" our crane is "Miss Piggy", maybe "Dominatrix" Anyways crane in place ready to rock the show. Joshua getting ready to cut this ugly mulberry LOADED with vines. Look at all those 90 degree crotches. Conehead ate that shit without a single chainsaw cut! I made a video on my phone and was so freaking excited to show it but for some crazy reason the phone only has like 2 seconds, same as every other one today:whine: In this picture this doesn't look big but I assure you it is at least 22" at base and 60+ feet tall. Ate it whole , 3-30 ish. Robbie has video In conclusion great freakin chipper that needs some TLC

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!
