    How full is the canopy when in full leaf? You might be able to have the size reduced (reduction pruning, not the 'topping' that was done to it), to reduce risk. The swing is on a suspect branch, and might be in a choking/ abrading situation. A chafe sleeve on the rope (tubular webbing) would be a help. You have soil compaction from the swing activity, and no mulch. Grass competition. A free-standing platform or 'treehouse' might be better.

    More rain. Dropped oak logs at the mill. He can cut 36", so, I'll be able to get full width slabs. He'll cut them in a couple weeks when he gets free. I'm in no rush. Don't know what I'll do with them. Stack them a while.

    Kyle, Canadian Peter / Raj is different than Wisconsinian Rajan/ Flushcut. Easy confusion.

    I'm wondering if its worthwhile to move a chip box and man-cab (possibly converted to mini/ stumper space) to a cab and chassis? My box is 4.5' tall, 11' southco box is functionally okay. Might be better to just try to buy a chip truck, or build/ customize a bed. Thoughts?

    Seems Ford used this problematic system for a couple years, including on my truck. It seems to have this Lucas Girling system in it. I'm starting to research it, now. My Elec. Brake Motor light came on. I'm trying to understand what it means and what to do. I just drove it for the second trip with an electric brake trailer, as it happens. Likely coincidental, not causal. So far, I've had new rear shoes, hydraulic cylinders, new front calipers, rotors, brake hoses. The front was in the last 2 years. The rears maybe 5 years ago. Seems like a master cylinder, too. Anyone familiar?

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Solo Tree Work in Climbing Forum
    I enjoy working alone. No distractions. A mini and grapple is important, in my market. Also, a number of put-on-ground-only customers also helps. I'd started a thread about it previously, for tips and such. Things like rubber tire chock setting on a hill, solo, etc. I enjoy working with skilled, safe, competent people. Rookies that want to do it their way are mentally-wearing.

    What is the benefit of the heavier chassis? I read on the Granberg site, IIRC, that the larger alaskan mills require .404 in order to accommodate larger metal stock/ beefier build.

    I think Jay has an 076 and another big saw. Jay understands engine tuning, too. I don't really. Not my forte.

    Kyle, consider buying a grapple (BMG,imo). $3k invested. Rent a mini when you need one. I took out this oak in small mill log sizes with almost no impact. $130 in 5/8" "shop-grade" plywood roadway, remains in good condition for the next job. We've already exceeded our average annual rainfall! You can decide how much impact you have, similar to ripping out versus bombing wood and brush. We had more impact from boots, saw dust, and scattered mulch by far than the machine, which never touched the lawn. This back lawn was half moss (not rooted like grass, which should bounce back better with the moss raked out. The front lawn is sunny and is curb-appeal type lawn, for lack of a better word.

    If spend the money on a Hitchhiker 2 or Rope Wrench, and/ or use a 540* wrap. Those adjustable Ring and ring FSs don't flip like a flipline. Big stems don't seem like a slide hazard. Could be worse to slide down and jar to a stop on a stub/crotch/ irregularity off the ground, than slide to the ground. Better to break your legs than spine.

    I have oak (rare, here) to mill. No projects in mind. Should I go for 8' or longer? 3" thick or different? Thoughts?
