    O.C.G.D. Thread, part two

    Part of a day. I could handle them. New grass seed down at the job the other day, when it was Sunny and 70, first warm day. I flipped them over, to the side periodically, so it would be on the pavers, mulch, or new spot of grass.

    How'd it go today?

    Chunked down the bottom, thick 25' of the long ago topped bigleaf maple I had previously stripped. Chunked it up on the ground for manually loading splitting. Lots of noodles. I rent out my hydraulic splitter to customers, knowing how much run time to expect, and that they might rather...

    Anyone still using the APTA?

    I got a 100' shot the other day, best I can tell, based on the little left on the 120' speedline rope, and extending my Wraptor rope for a base-tie.

    As a plumber, you may know lots more about pvc... in tree-people's eyes, it has seemed questionable under 160psi.

    I reached out of tall Firs to top a big dead madrone by Stihl Kombisystem pole chainsaw, with one metal and 2 carbon fiber extensions in the last year. PITA A very few dead trees and storm work is all.

    That notch doesn't seem to follow the grain... easy to cut off the hinge, as with strong spiral grain and a tall hinge.

    Solid stuff, Jed! Speed line city. APTA for a 100' Wraptor access into a fir being removed for my friend, who said he felt the roots heaving in the wind. It sticks well above everything nearby. Surprised we got it topped, and a couple chunks off, and chipped and moved out in a 9 hour...

    Thoughts on Bidding
