    I'm just talking back-up. Very plan B. If I had a flatbed, I'd have simple sides in any case. If you have to unload, the sides come off. Unloading, downhill, into three piles isn't very hard. Nothing beats a dump bed, overall.

    Good to know. I haven't had time to work on the grinder, nor the need. As it happens, my stump subcontractor called this morning, looking for business, winter discount.

    How many cut legs and cut chaps do you reckon you've seen over all the years, Jerry? Eric, what kind of disposal do you offer customers? Log disposal only?

    I've seen that on maples here, seemingly from squirrels, or the like.

    Mini's can spin and fit into much smaller spaces than articulated loaders. I hope to have one of each at some point (way on down the line).

    I'd go toward sun injury. Never seen lightning damage like that.

    Also, a flatbed can easily back-up as a chip truck, if an accident or unexpected breakdown happens. A couple years of being overly packed in might be counter-productive. I'm working out of a 0.2 acre residential lot, three trucks, chipper, 3 trailers, car, 2 grinders, milled wood. If you had a good place to park your dump trailer or________ in exchange for firewood, it could be win-win.

    My chip truck is 44" load height, IIRC, and my f450 service body is 41". I've put my mini-loader in both. 41" feels noticeably lower with 10' ramps. I ride on the loader, so that's easy. Can you sit on the stumper to ride up, so you can reach the controls, or have a walking ramp next to the loading ramps so that you can operate the controls? Is 43" possibly too high? Big tires? Lifted suspension?

    Having a stump grinder ready to hook up and roll, and out of the way at other times, is nice. Can you get a bigger truck and a small trailer? You're going to have to have longer ramps, and be able to operate the controls the whole way up. 2wd or 4wd? I've put my superjr into my pick-up bed, but it was a low-slung 2wd.

    Rented a Nifty 50 ton-behind lift. Wrecked the regrown tops on a many times topped maple. Lots of figure and burl in the butt big butt. Worked around the power line, rather than scheduling a drop. Couldn't have gotten the lift into any tighter spot if we tried. Two setups. Figured on 3, maybe 4. The homeowner specifically reminded me to take all the wood. I guess she doesn't want to try to turn 3-4' rounds into firewood. Funky thing must have been bent over when young. Butt comes out of the ground at 50-60*. Did a cedar canopy raise at another job with the lift. Well-spent $250.

    A rattle can or two will give it an all-white, 30' paint job. Two of my trucks are old, and chipper is ancient, but look decent. Any color of white blends more than Rust on white, even white on rust (going to need prep work if it to get a real paint job, anyway). Sean, do you have your own show going? Put it to work!!

    I'll leave a climbing rope in place every blue moon. Either I inspect the whole thing, or have spurs and lanyard on, with the rope as aid.
