  • The 52 got a workout today
  • This was the last piece of a tree that fortunately missed the house and shop. It took a double-line pull with a winch to break it the rest of the way loose, knocked most of the dirt off, jammed the pallet forks under it, and used a chain to keep it from falling off.

  • Your post reminds me I used the last of my firewood from all the fallen trees we had after an ice storm in '14. I thought I'd never get it all cleaned up, but the 8N with the blade made a huge difference pushing & pulling its heart out.

  • Looks like you had a good start on them before the ice melted. Most of our tree damage is from about the same time frame. It was a hurricane, followed by thunderstorms a few months later. I still have some areas too dangerous to try and cut. I've blazed a few trails and worked around the edges.

  • Power was out for a week due to one of the iced trees falling against the transformer...

    Lots of crews were out all over the county repairing similar problems, but they work from the high end problems down to the single users. The crew that came to replace our transformer were from south Texas.

  • Nice tractor. That looks like a very tall muffler.

  • Glad it missed your buildings. Smart way to move it versus dragging it and having it snag on something.
