At first I processed on the stump - then I bought my buncher and processed from piles.  Like Gary said - the geometry of the knives isn't ideal.  I learned to make ugly piles so they were easier to grab from.

Do these fabtek heads have float positions for when your delimbing?
On the Skidmore heads, you can enable float on the rotate while processing. The FabTeks / Cat heads do not have this function.

Well I own it. Ran it and all went well. The computer was a bit of a pain for me. The fabteks are pretty primitive but I hate elections. After that the machine was pretty simple. After what people said I figured Id be getting out with a chainsaw. But I cut 3-4 cord per hour the day running it. But thats also aspen out of buncher piles. Ill post some pics next week.

 Couldnt take it so I painted it today. I hate painting old equipment. Never turns out like I hope. But finish a few odds and ends then she goes to the woods to bring the other one home for some needed love.

She looks good plus it's always nice to have good looking machines that are not beat to death cause lots of people will walk by you to the next logger cause they feel your machines reflect your work . Old beat up machines means your broke and  they worry about getting paid .

nice.. congrats on the leap. 

well.. the $64,000 question is, how much more production is it responsible for at the end of a day?

Well first of all. Where did you come up with that number lol and it needs to average 90 cord a week to make the same I make with a chainsaw. Thats assuming it dont cost more than $1000 a month in break downs. Its already easier on fuel than I thought. Although I havent ran it straight 8 hours yet. But my buncher uses twice the fuel that timbco does. I know that already. And yes I know it will cost more at times. But it should produce a lot more than 90 cord too.

And hopefully at the end of the day a little easier on your back, and it's gotta be safer than a chainsaw. Congrats.

I'm starting to believe that very thing myself.
 
Joe the mule looks good.   Hate painting machines as well but it do look good.
