    Myself as well Mick. Came over backwards on a hill climb. To avoid the quad crushing me I couldn't protect my head as well as I would've liked. I came down on a rock knocked me out for a little bit with a helmet on.......without it may have been a permanent lights out I fear.

    I was curious of that too, about the no helmet? Greater peripheral or awareness? Butch I guess he was riding illegally. But just seemed he must have been oblivious to the law/classification as it was on the weekend of our big local fair and there were cops everywhere?

    Your mariposa fire made the news up here even with all of our own fires. But I already had the inside scoop anyways.

    I saw one of those Polaris things you like on the road up here. And funnily the fellow piloting it had no helmet on? We have strict helmet laws here so I'm not sure the scoop on that? Have fun Levi, and stay safe!

    Glad to hear things are easing up for you. Yes this is a terrible year up here too, still so early in the season. Still tinder dry everywhere about. Was supposed to be more lightning around today and atleast here we had really high winds. I haven't even checked the news to see how that's affected things. I hope you get things squared away and start turning some wheels again soon.

    Cool. I've been feeling the itch for a bike myself. My last one was a old gs750. My buddy picked up a '03gsxr 750 that's been in my shop for a couple of weeks now. Tearing it right down and going through it all. I've been keeping an eye out just in case a 'deal' comes up. Lol. I think my wife would kill me though. Levi how do custys react to the new machine? I bet it's a blast to clip around on and economic as all hell.

    Stupid question maybe. But is it possible to add the rotator after if you felt you needed it? Or is it a different animal all together? If there wasnt a significant cost difference to add it later if desired I'd definetly go without. It was sort of glossed over earlier but how much lift height difference between the two? You're probably good with that bigger machine but with my little skid loader every inch counted.

    I realize that Mick and don't mean to bang on about it. I know you'd whip down to the store and grab one if they were available. Just pointing out what caught my eye. Not trying to poke you in the eye.

    That's the problem with all these ratings. How much would you say your machine can lift? An actual 3500pds? If so I'd feel like you've stated, rotate away.

    I'd say that's one thing that sticks out for me in the design difference between the Bmg and that avant is that the hydraulics look less protected.

    Think of the machine as the lifting power, the plate as the fulcrum and the grapple as the load. 20kg at the plate requires less lifting power to hoist than 20kg out on the dangle grapple. You can say that's either wood or rotator out there on the grapple and what's 20kg either way but IMO you'll quickly wish it was 20kg of wood or more capacity. Running machines efficiently is all about pushing them to their capacity, and ime with a grapple you'll quickly find that point and wish their was more. What capacities are you playing with on that lifter of yours? Don't discount the loss that a dangle grapple will have. My little ramrod could do about 800pds in a bucket, about 500 with the bmg 50pds less would've been sucky for me. But I imagine you have much higher capacity? Lastly I'd consider the robustness of the rotator and the extra hoses and switch for changing between rotate/clamp. I know I beat the living hell out of my grapple but maybe I'd have been a little less aggressive if things were exposed like on that avant. Hopefully Carlito will pipe in, and others with their experiences. I doubt you'd hate either one.

    Still brewing coffee here so probably haven't worded it right. Lol . What I'm meaning for you to consider is if you lift say 800with a regular bucket (no idea just numbers) then with the bmg swing grapple putting the load out there you will have significant loss of capacity just over the weight of the grapple alone due to the lifting point, say down to like 500pds. Are you ok to lose another 50? Hopefully Carl will chime in at what size/capacity point he's found it to be negligible. Regardless. Happy for you to have found soemthing. Now I'll go back and read the actual link. lol.

    You're going to lose more than 20kg of lift capacity due to the leverage applied by the grapple. This isn't 20kg at the pin, this is 20kg dangling out there.

    Six hours in. Time to slap em and wrap em. That's six hours at about 210-225, I swapped the meat around from top rack to bottom and vice versa three hours in. Now wrapped I'll kick it up to 250-275 and hopefully not more than another couple hours to juicy tender yumminess. Basically same as I did last time but x4! I did leave one of them 'dry' in case someone shows up who's insane.

    Whole pig cookout would be awesome. I've been places where they've smoked whole pigs but never done it myself. Smoking is a lot more rare up here. Many people never do it or really experience it. I'm fully hooked. I went to a smoke restaurant with my bil in the big city to the south of us and it was amazing. That was it. I needed my own, homemade.

    Too bad. If you spoke French I'd make you a honorary Canadian. You're very polite and with that Inuit blood you're practically a shoe in.
