    Default Jacking Old Growth

    Had a unit with some bigger trees in one corner. Short ground so we had to jack em. Saw is modded 3120 with 50" cannon.

    Ground is broken up by ridges and draws that make it so there isnt a lay for the tree. Any djrection the trees would go without jacks would end up breaking the trees in half, and sometimes worse, much worse.

    Aye. Silveys. One pic is of self contained "hijacker" unit. The other pics are the backpack rams (these are the bigger version) with seperate pump and hoses. With these multiple jacks, which are called rams, maybe used at the same time. We have used up to three rams at once. At 62 T per ram thats about 180T of available lift.

    I would love to be in wood that size! Around here right now mostly 36" or less with an odd tree being bigger.
