    I'm looking at a 12 acre property, I might try talking to the local county people and see if they would allow me to build a green house that I would heat with a wood incinerator. If I can get it in writing that I can build an incinerator who knows how long it will take to build the green house....... I have a huge fan and a 40 yard dumpster but haven't had time to mess with it. Having two businesses gets really old sometimes. Cannot do good at either. I'm thinking of getting rid of one of them and trees really makes the money....

    This is a new approach for high capacity wood moving.... 21K gvw weighs in at 4500 lbs so can carry 16,500 of logs, way more than my big trucks.

    I would love to see video or a better diagram of this cut. Actually 💡 perhaps. So by cutting the triangle you are removing more of the compression wood that would cause barber chair similar to a bore cut? Don't know if I worded that correctly so please be gentle 🙈 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    When you grind blades you do so in sets. So 4 get done at once on one side. You grind down all till you get all the knicks out of the worst blade. Then you flip the blades and repeat. The 2 sides WILL NOT be ground to the same length. If you are doing it right you set your shear bar up as close to the blades as possible, so you need all the same depth edges facing the same direction, clear as mud

    And not to touch your leg with the chain even if it's not running. Personally I would duct tape it but saying that I have never worn a pair.

    I have a yellow grapnel which I became very frustrated with probably the first time I used it. Now it sits in my garage just looking pretty. Haha! On Amazon they have some decent grappling hooks that look pretty handy. Of course if you have enough rope you can just send your climb line or second climbing line to the ground guy and have him tie it back to your main climb line.

    The tires I just put on are skid loader tires and have a really agresive tread and are super stiff. They just don't conform at all. My tires of 11 years were like yours Mick, need to find them I guess Interesting about the old truck tires....

    Just put some new tires on my tcm804 after 12 years use. New tires are terrible on lawns. Any recommendations on good 12-16.5 turf tires?

    I think it's great that we get called out here for our faults . One of the first vids I posted I got ripped for no ppe. Never mind I took down a huge decayed poplar using two adjacent trees to rig off and got it done in a safe and timely manner. Ten years later and I'm the crane operator and we all wear ppe, it's no longer my ass in the tree and I want every percentage of risk eliminated that is in my power. I used to feel like I was in a groove and could day in day out push the boundaries. Now from my crane lounger I feel like every day is a roll of the dice. As Rico says being "present" for every aspect of the job is crucial. It's hard sometimes when you are run ragged to keep focused. Been hot here all week and today we had a near Miss with the crane , we all need to assess our level of concentration on a regular business as mistakes can be bad even if you have ppe Steven, for as hard as you work I feel you should be better compensated, move buddy. I hear ya on the logistics getting too much when you are busy,. It's a killer man

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!
