1000 would be great and i would not hesitate.

did the first trial run, it works extremely good, the grapple turns around slowly left and right and with the same machine movement i can more or less control the turn. of course a rotator would be perfect.

We will load first flatbed friday, so we'll see how that works out.

Teak price is bad this year, 30% less on the short sticks and 50% on the big, longer, good ones. i won't sell the big ones this year, i have decided to mill them all to 2x6's, that's what they most use for building the roofs around here. even if i can't sell them right away i can store the cut lumber as long as i want and will earn a lot more than selling round wood.
