nice little haul
« on: October 07, 2010, 05:18:17 AM »
had to do a fence today and these pine trees were in the middle, they would fall over it so i said id take them to the dump for him.





biggest was 20"

knocked them all down and cleaned up the heads in 2 hours.

got 100m of steel stakes and dingo wire fence up.

not a bad day all in all.


oh i blew the seal on the crowd ram on the bobcat pushing the head into a pile.

I'd say "not bad at all" for a days work.

Those are some nice logs.

I would say a "very nice haul".   :)  Looking at the butts, you have a good falling technique also.    ;)

just gota work out what to cut them and the otehr 300 i hve into. got do it asap cos after 12 months there will be nothing left but mulch.

i am a fully licenced faller, and have cut 1000s of cubic meters of logs.

these trees were all leaning different directions. if you look at the 4th pic, there is a post and rail fence to the right and there is actually a house just to the right of the pic. the only place to fall them was a 6m wide opening where the photo was taken from

a tree lopper had quoted $5000 to remove them. and was going to climb and block tehm down.

i felled them all 2 i had to wedge over and 1 i jacked as it was leaning over fence by 1m.

im pretty good with a saw but i have seen old blokes who can fall a log withing a coupla inches of where you tell them u want it.

i look at stumps and buts everyware i go and wonder how there arent more people killed.

most peole couldnt hit the broad side of an elephant.

Nice indeed.

Is "dingo" fence a brand? Or style fence for dingos?

dingo wire is a kind of mesh. made by BHP

it used to be called marsupial wire.

its hinge joint mesh with small holes at the bottom and tehy get biger towards the top.

the idea is the keep small animals in at the bottom and big animals at the top.

this fence was to keep goats in so it will keep out foxes and dingos aswell.

Why would the log go bad?  Is it insects?
