    Justin your freezer should be fine if you don't open it for 24 hours. Also toss a bunch of blankets on top if you think the outage will last a while. Not that I'm trying to tell you not to get a bigger generator, just throwing out thoughts for the time being.

    Did one small removal this morning and into the back yard for a pair of silver maple reductions. Fairly large trees but in decent shape for silvers. I was talking with the property owner a bit at lunch and he said he only lives there in the summer. Spends about nine months in the keys. Next thing I know he says that Dot Palm is the tree service he uses down there. World got a bit smaller to me at that moment. Nothing but praises about them.:thumbup:

    Not under tension Sean. I think Grendel posted a video with an old wire core that he just tapped with the saw and it went just like a standard lanyard. Share this video https://youtu.be/6iERnPNlWe8

    You want to stay out of it is all I can add. Learning to cut for the situation is the biggest thing but isolating your lanyard and a separate tie in point should be used as well for those times you guess wrong. And I'm guessing one doesn't need to be quick with a knife when the 200T is already in hand and running. It was for me. Cut the lanyard and take the not so delightful swing. Sucks but your intestines don't come out your asshole.

    Blacksmith I know your pain. I'm sure Jim does as well. Only way to the clutch is splitting them in half. Did that a few times and I actually enjoyed it even though it sucks

    Thanks. I'll talk to the mechanic and see if he will give it a try. 7 gallons of gas should be after a hard day I suppose. I can't really compare. My 250 Xp gets fuel every 4-6 days. At work we have chippers that run 40 gallons a day. Obviously much bigger size. We have a small gasser but I've only ran it once and I have no idea what we used for gas. I can ask if I can stand to talk to the guy who uses it. He's a hyper OCD type of person. A great guy to be around for ten minutes till you realize he's insane.

    If you don't mind checking Brian, how for do the hooks stick out on the sides and what size Dee's on the tail gates? Curious because those seem almost idiot proof and allow for a bit of wear and tear adjustability.

    I did forward that to most of the guys I work with. Even though it's the weekend, most have responded with "holy shit! Now we know why you yell about that kinda stuff" And that's the way my crew see's it. Climber #1,property #2, and ease on ground crew#3. I make their job easy when I can and they take the abuse when I need them to.

    Did you get a parts/owners manual for the chipper? My 250xp didn't come with one and our local dealer said he could sell me one or send a PDF file for free. I printed out two. One for in the office and one for in the shop. It should have the part numbers that can be cross referenced easily. That's a nice set up you got. On your ford clutch issue, check the linkage on the clutch pedal itself. I'm not sure for your year but my 350 and 550 have a plastic spacer in there. When it breaks it adds enough play to make shifting into first and reverse act up. I think it's an $11 part from the dealer. Could be wrong though.

    Rumor on the buzz is this fellow lived. Pete did not. Both show what can happen. One reason I have no problem ripping in to a ropeman when he doesn't let it run. Spar failure is one of my top fears. Causes me to climb higher, rig smaller, and look for other options. I don't like seeing these posts but they need to be read.

    I was pretty sure they were original Fiddler. And you did make sure I knew of the couple of slices. I've added a few since then. Page what you're having happen is not normal. Toro should stand behind their product. I will try to remember to talk to our local dealer's mechanic tomorrow and ask about this problem. Memo is being written in a minute

    Somewhere along the line I misplaced a splicing kit. I think it's at the shop. Not sure if these belong in this thread with all the pretty splices but I did these with a ball point pen for a fid.

    I've got one for the end of October that is still in the air between husband and wife on the hieght. He wants it ground out. She wants a bird bath/ feeder height. Either way it is fine with me. I'd rather grind it out and see them replant something but if a bird sanctuary makes her happy than so be it. I left a 60" cut at a predetermined elevation of 72" a few years ago so after they built the deck they could put a table top on it. The contractor marked it prior to my removal. He missed by 8" and paid very dearly to have me come back after he built the deck for that final cut. What some people are willing to pay to say they salvaged their old tree. I got no problem obliging.

    treebilly replied to a thread BMG mod. in Gear Forum
    Thanks from me too. I'll be adding the pipe for rounded edges soon. I did cut small triangle pieces of steel and welded to the tips to sharpen the teeth for grabbing larger diameter logs. When they dull up I just grind them off and weld new on. Takes minutes. Saves hours of frustration. My biggest issue was huge wood. Having to cut firewood length and it couldn't bite into the end grain. That's why I welded tips to it.

    Someone needs to be paying you. I've got over a thousand hours on my Vermeer tracks and have only tossed them three times. Never broke one. I could be wrong on that but I'm pretty sure Fiddler told me they were factory. Sorry to hear about your misfortune. I'll ask my Stihl dealer if they've had any problems with the dingos they sell.

    Chris great job. Two questions though. First was there a reason you couldn't high stump and bring the log up hill with a base tie off and second are these iPhone pics? On my iPhone I have to resize to original ( don't know why) to get them to load right.

    Good video Patrick. I agree with every thing you put in. The best part is experimenting in non critical situations. I advise my "apprentice" to check your site out. He's a bit hit or miss though. Some days he's all about the job other days he's , well you can guess. The spin thing also helps to flatten out the landing. I think August referred to it as putting a bit of English on it to flatten it out. How did your garden do this year in the wood chips? I had someone tell me recently that the time to use them is when you see stuff starting to grow on the pile. Sounds right to me but I'm a few years away from that option as I usually dump mine at a recycling yard
