    Watch the oscillation of the pole. Climb the pole with your hands, with a chocking lanyard. Keep tension on your climbing system the whole time, slipping and falling onto your climbing line will be bad news.

    Yes, Willie, I have it. These are for general purpose use. Allows me to see when everything is going right, not just when things start to get out of alignment.

    Can you just get a small crane to lift you, dice it down, and clean up as usual?

    You'd be lucky to tension rope that tight without a load on it. What is the address? I use the snot out of Google Maps, any time the customer calls and I can look while on the phone, I do.

    Are gates made in metric? 38" That's pretty much a meter. The Boxer hasn't been perfect, but it 34.5" when tracks are retracted. Longer in the tracks that the wheels, I think.

    Don't tension your skyline hard. You will be loading it as though with a lever. You will be weighing perpendicular to the line, magnifying your force. There is a good video, maybe with DDM folks, maybe not, but IF I recall correctly they were from that part of the world. Always take pictures and post them if you want maximum useful input.

    I think about using Uber/ cab for shuttling. Outsourcing the need for taking another employee and truck from job site. I like PC's idea about the motorcycle on the crane. Tough dealing with someone without a license. Cool video. What is to become of the logs?

    For whatever its worth, an experienced miller, who does demo's for Granberg off-handedly mentioned that chainsaw milling in the rain is good, as the saw is cooler (and maybe less dusty). Maybe high humidity can better draw heat off the cooling fins. Stands to reason.

    Do you have/ are you considering the slabber attachement? A local guy I found through CL has a 50" slabber. I'm going to have to find some storage space.

    Plywood is not that tough to work with...especially if the machine can carry it (I can stack plywood on my loader arms/grapple without being on the hoses). Mats will pay off over time. Both can be moved on a cart, easily enough. Depends on what you're trying to get out, limbs or big logs. If you're trying to drag out big logs, you're going to need ground protection any way. I can spin my mini on a half sheet of plywood 4'x 4'. How much do you work in wet conditions? How is your soil, typically? A machine that can go on any job is like having 1-3 extra guys that can't drive or rake, but that do everything you ask of them, never getting tired.

    I recall there being a manufacturer spec, unless I'm mistaken, for being out of level. 5% or 5* or something. I think it was an Altec boom.

    Mick, you crack me up. Clearly a chipper is better than brush trailering, but a lot of people need stepping stones in their businesses, and the occasional terrible access jobs. I've slid down two steep, mossy, forested waterfront driveways with my chipper. POW and bull rope on the one, controlled skid on the other. Long, narrow lots. Turning around is tough. On flat, paved ground, two can spin my chipper because its light at 4400 pounds. I've had to disconnect, spin, and reconnect in order to access a few places. Very rarely, its easier with a brush trailer, so you might as well make it as easy as possible. A dump trailer is always easiest.

    As with anything, multiple right and good ways. I think in any of them, nobody advocates losing any ground on the lean. In my estimation, 'reading' the wedging effect along with judging the cutting of the hinge thickness/ shape/ defects are a dynamic process. Feeling the rebound of the ax, listening to the pitch of the strike, seeing the movement of the stem, watching the wiggle/ oscillation of the trunk and top, noticing deadwood breakage from wedge/ ax impact, etc are the details of it.
