    making a knee ascender

    That's pretty bulky, imo. Looks like nice craftsmanship. I have a JetStep. Works nice. The hook can be a problem, mostly while walking. I made mine from a Petzl handled ascender I had, cut down and drilled for two connection points. Elastic bungee cord and a piece if scrap rope, tied in an...

    That's is supposed to be a good ball park for cold calls. Repeat customers are easier and easier with every passing job leaving them happy. Sounds like your dance card is full. The calibration of estimated time versus real job time is challenging.

    I've seen things with the rear driver on I5. It just doesn't look right. It's like a cockpit in the basement or something.

    What Causes A White Pine To Sprout Limbs?

    What i understand, unless mistaken, is that anyplace there is or was a branch, there are dormant buds at the node. Sometimes, doug-fir with root-disease will puff out emergency growth along the trunk and primary limbs Incomplete pruning (stubs) will often result in regrowth.

    I wonder if there is a power- rotator or something more than passive tracking on the rear bunk.

    What Causes A White Pine To Sprout Limbs?

    It grew limbs higher up, too. Pick up a dollar. Keep going to your day job.

    Dormant groth huds stimulate by light and growth hormone changes, such as heavy pruning or a broken leader.

    How is the world of sales and estimating going for you? Had you sold tree work or other things before you started your biz?

    It takes time to be able to sprint fast. Day 1 isn't it. Most miniskids, the height-loss on a power rotator is important. Telescopic is a different animal. Articulated loaders might also be that way. Dunno.

    Critical root zone distance?

    1' of radius per inch of DBH/ DBH was one definition for CRZ (80% of the roots). There are better ones. It came up in TB. Age, vigor, and size all influence it. Species should, too.

    Making a rope wrench

    Doesn't matter much. Hardwood, no pitch, try a 45 degree, slightly oversize hole. Polish the hole with scrap rope. Stiffen the tether.

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

    Minor stuff. I've been loading a lot of logs in my trailer. I got steel stakes for security and durability, drilled for bolts to attach to wood. Chain down hooks, front and rear. Stabilizer legs for loading and unloading. Jack is repaired.

    Removal advice

    IF you were climbing instead of felling, rathere than rigging a bunch of small pieces, a 4'x4' piece of plywood with brush on top will catch chunks. If you're going to piece it up on the ground into rounds, you might just drop single rounds, letting the groundie load them on/ in a rolling...

    Mine was stored upright, then it froze. In use, it's not a concern, it's storage.
