    I'm starting to use this site more. I have a couple free spots already but it's nice when I can get a spot near the job site. I just got off the phone with a guy who wants chips AND logs and he lives a half mile away from my oak removal job on Monday. He will take the whole tree, chips and logs. :boogie:

    Had a dip in the chipper feed table floor just past the feed wheel and it created a lip where it met the frame. Brush was getting hung up so I took it to my welder who ran a few beads and built it up, then I ground it flat with a 4.5" grinder and flap wheel. Wow, what a difference! Did 5 oak removals on Thursday and Ron was running whole leads through it without a hiccup. We originally were going to weld in a new floor over top of the old floor but no need to go to such measures just yet. Friday after we hauled out the second load of logs from that job and watched the stumps get ground, I dumped the trailer and then took it to Ocala (60 miles away) to the manufacturer where I traded it in for the replacement they made me. It was sold to me as having 10 gauge steel sides but they were 12 gauge so they offered to build me a replacement. I offered to bring the old one back and pick up the new one since they were willing to do that to honor their warranty. The company owner and the guys working on final prep on my trailer were all very nice and got me squared away. Got the new trailer home and it's a lot sturdier than the other one. Haven't used it yet.

    Holy cow I'm impressed! I thought all the normal people here had quit posting and had been replaced by TreeBuzz rejects! Oops, sorry if I said that out loud. For the most part I simply quit posting about my work because I don't want to hear the criticism from the safety police. Hell, what they did to Rico here should be against the law. I miss the old days of this forum when we could talk about real situations without getting scolded. I come here for fun, not to have some kid with a fraction of my experience tell me I'm unsafe.

    I agree with Brendon. I spent a lot of money on a lot of gadgets that were cool as hell and didn't save me a single minute of time and didn't make my job any easier. But I had all the cool toys! I've gone full circle and back to just the basics these days. Of course I still have a ton of gear on the trucks and once in a while I might actually use some of it, but most of the time it just collects dust.

    Hate what CA has become. Anyway. It is not just the immigrants. A lot of it is policy for aid. We still have a rash of folks that are homeless or just plain lost about everything and are under employed. Remember that bubble thingy not so many years ago when real estate crashed and people lost home on bad loans. Yeah, we are still feeling that here. Look up homeless in SF or LA. Plenty of news there. A lot of industry has fled the state as well since it is so expensive to have a business here.

    Well, wouldn't you agree that California politicians encourage illegals (they aren't immigrants, immigrants enter legally) and pretty much all poor people to come feast on the best welfare programs in the country? If I had absolutely no desire to work for a living and wanted to live off the system then I'd look for the most generous free benefits I could find- and I'd move to California.

    As I recall; you made cash arrangements, had the procedure done and paid it out right, only to receive another bill you had to dispute.

    Yup! You have to visit to understand it. Or grow up around it or live there. Some of those streets are beyond steep. They laugh at 8% grades. I bet people blow equipment motors from oil starvation on some of them.

    Seemingly. Stuff like that makes me angry and sick.

    I think 1987 is when they went to fuel injection in the Ford trucks. My 1988 F150 was a fuel injected 302, second year of that technology and it couldn't pull a greasy string out of a cat's ass. It took a couple years for them to get the power back up to carbureted levels.
