    I guess its kind of big.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Can the feed wheel crush downwards hydraulically like a 2400 Hurricane?

    This might be a dumb question........how on earth would you feed that thing?

    Can you feed it directly with the crane? Wheel loader on the ground?

    I guess you have to stop the feed rolls, get a different bite and keep supporting one end of the log?
