    From brand new up to about 8 years old...that's around the maximum age the Forest Service keeps them in fleet. So that means rigs that were 6 or 7 years old when I started in 1979 up to brand new in 2012 when I retired. Plus, I drove Fords, Dodges, Chevrolets, and Internationals working for two different state fish & wildlife agencies and with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, before I started working for the Forest Service in '79.

    I'd take 1 Dodge truck for 3 Fords, at a minimum. I've lived with many of both brands, over the last 45+ years. Not a doubt in my mind. Dodge rules. Once you throw Chev/GMC into the mix, I get less strident. I liked the several of that sort I drove; they were right good trucks, too.

    If the pole felt very sound, I guess I could. Maybe would... if no power or anything attached. And if I guyed it against the load. And I cut small.

    CurSedVoyce replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    We can only sell labor currently. I am going after my LTO next month so I can permit the trees and then we are able to mill and sell the wood with out issue. About double our money in some cases. Rob charges out 50-75 per depending if he has someone pulling and stacking or not. A lot of people only want small cut lists and cringe at the hourly. The hourly is cheap by comparison of small amounts of boards. But, small amounts of boards is profitable if they are stacked and stickered, ready to roll if someone just needs a few.

    Ours is up to 8x8, 19'6" long i believe. Height, at least 4' probably more. I think rob has done over 50" in it. I doubt I would want to run it higher than that. Posts are way taller though. It would be a comfort and stability issue. Rob is 6 foot if that gives you any idea. You can buy bigger, it's only money :lol:

    We don't have the slab set up, but we can still get a slab or two out of a log. If we did more hardwoods, or redwood, it would be a consideration.

    I think Gary or someone wanted to see how the sugar pine mills out for my floors. This wood was milled last year. The logs I brought home recent will get milled soon and get stickers and dried for next year. I started laying out the floor today. Just planking it and then filling the gaps. Basically, no joints to tear apart ad kids and animals ruin floors pretty much. Might as well make it easy to replace. I'll keep taking pictures as we progress with descriptions of how it goes down. I will screw these down tomorrow as I tap them together and probably get them sanded at least. Grain should show up better after I start putting finish on them.
