    How is a setup on a wet hill on the street?
    Like a San Francisco hilly street....

    So far, I like the way the Teupen 18GT looks at 55' @ 5000 lbs.

    IDK how you most situation is. Might want to scrub the outrigger pad placement before dunnage. Maybe Jay's sandbag methods.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    I like the sandbag idea.

    This will be a learning experience.



    Need to be able to access sketchy over extended stuff and really detail the boutique fine pruning... the kinda things that are tough to do from in the tree.

    I probably wouldn't go much more than 50' in height, I dunno. I'd have to fly one for myself to make any type of real decision.

    I have used the Teupen Leo23GT alot,for a narrow access machine it's incredibly versatile in height and reach. As others said it was plagued with electrical gremlins. I think if I were to buy one I would want a Teupen engineer reasonably close, the owner of the one I used did.
    It did develop a fault in the wiring loom that could only be fixed in the factory, that involved it going for a holiday too Germany and a ?10k bill!!!

    I asked JP and he suggested this platform track arborist edition....

    The video is rad.

    Yes, Tim... I'm leary of Teupen...
    Great when its someone else's machine.

    No it's a thing but I have only read about it here tho. If Jay were still around he has a lot of experience with sand bags I think he turned Paul on to them IIRC.
