    I'll take what Paul just described the HH2 to be, literally bulletproof.

    Patrick, what is the blue and white loop? Clip-in for a tending apparatus? Does it load it crooked? I use a piece of tech cord tied as an eye to eye, one eye on each side of the HH. Just got a chest harness, which might mean the tech cord goes away.

    I start mine as tight as possible. I don't take it off the rope.

    The Petzl Fixe pulley as a tender pulley, sides plates straddling the bridge ring, clipped to the carabiner, Dave/DMc style, is my recent upgrade. The pulley I had wasn't quite right. Have you seen that Muggs?

    Some day this will all be live group video-chat/ video recordings. Easy to sort things out and show some tangibles examples in our discussions.

    Go buy some rattle cans. Because it's a work truck doesn't mean it can't be one color (or close), and washed. You don't want to look like Itchy and Scratch, will work for meth tree guys. My chipper is 42 years old, and all white. Get some magnetic signs cheap at Vistaprint. Try to sell firewood to affluent people who Want to burn wood, not have to because it's cheaper. I had a professionally made 4x8 sign on my 1/3 of cord (tossed in, stacking means more labor ) little trailer $65-75, parked at the end of the main road leading to lots of water front houses. I learned quickly not to sell full cords.

    Stig, sorry for the confusion, that I don't get, still, honestly. I'm a bit sick, and definitely tired. Sometimes working off at small screen. I'm talking about spar-splitting from internal forces on the tree, not about stressors to tree-health, that can endanger the climber. Gord's picture/ explanation of the situation, and others' experiences seem in line with a grown-bent-over trunk with the top removed being possible to split.

    Is it a much different to have a stem suddenly pulled down with huge force, versus, a huge downward force being suddenly relieved, effectively "unbending" the stem, changing the loading within? Maybe it doesn't make sense, but spars tend to crack and split on other people, too, with good cutting techniques.

    We are talking hard-leaning trees, right? Not slightly leaning trees. Have you seen the video of Gord in a Bigleaf Maple, from a long time ago, with the stem-split? I'm trying to find it. Why do you chain below your cuts, not just above?

    Sell it by the truckload. Is their yard smaller than the trailer??? You're overthinking this trailer thing. Again, if the trailer worries you, get out of hazard tree removal. Driving is the safest, easiest part of the day. Pedals and a wheel. Seat belts, truck built to withstand roll-overs.

    Usually I think, "ya, another 'pretty tall' dead tree removal bid. Two dead Grand fir. One is significantly taller, and single trunk/ pretty straight. The other one, Doctor Suess and two tops. In a forest of tall trees, it's hard to gauge size. These things hardly taper, 34-36" dbh. My guess is the secondary tops are 12"+, and curly, as best I can tell. Right near the Sound on the uphill side of the road, not waterfront. Luckily, the big one decidedly leans toward the neighbor's huge shop, housing his fancy boat. The other one, toward the 1 neighborhood access road, and primaries. Not many people live down here, so electrical repair is low priority after a storm. The homeowner doesn't want to be "that guy" with dead trees endangering people/ property/ access/ utilities (all wells for water supply, too). Several years of drought and age .

    You guys have had hard leaning straight-grained trees start to pop and crack when cutting, right? Crotches/ interruption in the grain limits this, clear, straight grain exacerbates this tendency to split. Which would you rather cut, hard leaning knotty wood, or straight grained clear wood?

    Looking back at the first page, or whatever, $1000 each is way high for those trees.
