I would have a hard time going away from a hotsaw although I do sometimes miss the low overhead of a chainsaw and cable skidder the hotsaw sure is safer and faster.

Itís is fast and yes safer. Even the the big hard to get to trees Iíve been doing a face cut and bore cut on a few then get back in the buncher and nip the holding wood and I can then use the buncher to push it into the lay. Works well. But at prolly 5 gallons and hr and the higher priced parts itís just hard to wrap my little cheap brain around it yet! 😂

 Salesman from Propac is trying to sell me a head BAD 😆 theres a 630B with a 22' quadco I see sitting for sale, after this next round I see a hotsaw being the next thing. Honestly I lay ALOT of wood down cheap with with my barsaw but im rarely in tiny stems.

 Quickest way to become an organ donor is to get in this dead pine with a chainsaw. Grab stuff and hear the limbs bouncing off. 


 

  everybody's a hero till your staring at your track pads pushing 28" pine back up the hill... 🤷‍♂️😆 


 
 Its time to make a moon crater.... i wont live long enough to see the end of this quarry. 
 

 
 Maintenance, do it or 🤷‍♂️ I still think the G-series was the best dozers deere made. 
 

 that thing is a pushing fool. 
 

 Neighbor's are going to LOVE ME... 😆 1100 in lights going on 2 skidders and the buncher. Going to start laying that clearcut on the ground nights. 
 Take her home for an oil change, lights, and a bath. Dropped the 648 to get this job done.

Im with Ed.


And i have changed my strategy on maple clumps.  I no longer cut them down.  Having switched to a girdle by 5/16  tap and tube approach.

Firewood, that looks like the coastal plain of the SE.  "Not even a scratch in their tire tracks " is now my saying of the day, love it.

I have a feeling I know who they is.  It's the Bachman's Sparrow on this end of the world that needs those open spaces.  I played with Red Cockaded Woodpeckers for a number of years too......now various mussels in the creeks.

No they need live standing jack pine. But the jack pine does off and the state manages out timber so rather than it die the harvest before its dead and replant.

 Mike that trailer came out of PA, was owned by an equipment dealer down there outside Philly. Why someone ordered a 2001 trailer on daytons I dont know 🤷‍♂️ We sent it out and had the bottom painted and some steel 2yrs ago, guy told me to run it 3-4yrs and get out of it. Ive been slowly shopping lowboys, a new Pitts or Kaufman isnt bad priced, the minute you get into 55ton dropside and fancy forget it, then your into a 4 axle truck, all to feed the monster.
