    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.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Years ago i drove my stump grinder through a house in s.f. Had to put a long hose on the exhaust to get through the front hallway, livingroom, kitchen in the back then stairs down to the backyard. Sheesh wadda circus!

    That is crazy. Sounds like Brooklyn but with steepness added.

    Good question

    The unit I listed does have guards with the Arborist Package. 3/16 aluminum.
