Neat logging video
« on: November 16, 2012, 04:38:02 AM »
I was watching harvest videos of Youtube when I came across this.  Neat video of the growth of forest mechanization.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=w-_IRCieGew

Lots of toys for working in the bush

That video looks to be a great review of the changes made in harvesting and investment of money.
Should give some of the firewood processors some possible ideas as well.

A small reminder of the farm tractor extraction where one or two jumping on the hood for extra weight was needed to get up a short rise. :)
