    I had one of the senna hardhats on, a Andy easily could have asked the skid steer up to put the other one on. I just didn't think it was necessary. My bad for sure. That's not the first time that's happened I love using them when working on rigging. But not really too used to using them all ground operations I'll have to change my game up there. Thank you for the reminder even though I know it but its glad to hear it was such emphasis

    If you're ( or me ) running the show it has your name on it ... Telling the insurance companies after a catastrophe "I told them to move" won't sound too good.

    Glad no one was hurt. You have the comms, use them.
    Hinge needs a bit of work

    Well sir, why did you put cuts on the sides and what is up with the tapered hinge? I know you have an article written some years ago about the tapered hinge but it doesn't tend to work on maples very well. Nipping the sap wood when felling from ground level tells me that the person making the cut is unsure of where level is. The sapwood holds better than the center, so why cut it out and then use a tapered hinge? Face of the notch is a bit sloppy as well but that's a very minor detail.
    Industry standard? We're way beyond all that aren't we?

    And I would've lost it as well if a knucklehead or two was in the drop zone.
