    I have a set to put in mine but I'm holding out as long as I can. I wear them on my machine which wears them down pretty fast. But, The other day I did not wear my calks and got out on a hill that was so froze, I fell 3 times just standing there. I was actually surprised my skidder was able to climb it.
    I guess wearing them down fast is better than falling down fast.... and often.

    I didn't see this yesterday. I like your laugh at the end. One thing I usually do in that situation is I will face up the tree in the lead and maybe even start the back cut. Then as soon as I get the back tree faced and ready I'm right into the back cut of the lead tree. Just keeps your time in danger to a minimum. I will often do that when I'm going to push a tree with another. I will face up the pusher tree then cut up the tree to be pushed and then I'm right into the backcut of the pusher tree. Looks like your having fun! Fun at work is good!

    Yo, get a jack, reduce the pucker factor. Also your wedge-palming kung fu is solid as hell. Good work.

    Appears to have been a soft landing. Hope the operator didn't get bang up too badly.

    I hope all else is well in your fine country.
