You're too far away for me to consider but I would like a decent answer on how big a tree you can actually tackle with that thing?

Recommendation up to 8 inches, but will do bigger.

I would love to get a hold of one of those for a couple weeks. Do you contract by the job or hourly?

I don't recall there being much hill country in your neck of the woods but I was wondering how well one of those critters does on rough ground? I haven't heard of any in my area and that may well be why.

Have you had any issue with overheating on that 299XHP? 
I know that lots of guys have had them catch fire and burn up even though they swear they have kept them clean of debris in the compartment.
Are you running knives or carbides?

They're all over eastern Washington, and North Idaho.  I grew up in the Hill Country, and I'm fairly sure the terrain up here is a 'bit' more extreme.

Can't argue with you there. Never been to your part of the world but I got a TV.

If is mostly flat in my area.  Ground is soft soil with few rocks.  Never hit any big stones or rocks but have hit a pile of bricks covered in vines.  It pulverized them, seemed not to damage the carbides.

Not yet.  We have been running it hard in this Louisiana heat.
