    Looks like an old shovel can to me which is common on the east side where the mills aren't as common.

    Thanks. I sold the one in the picture and ended up getting two mid 90s d6h to cover more ground.

    Got fixed boom units as well. Had alot of issues with the sorting boom on the 527

    Guess I'm confused,
    Skeans, were you talking about PNWfaller509's Pic or InfiniteJest's? I was referring to InfiniteJests pic in MT earlier.

    That sure looks like a yarder set up to me or the like in Montana. Looks like wood being pulled up each setting.

    That's what I was thinking originally but There might be some confusion as to the pics. I do know that those guys on the coast run towers on some really steep stuff, steeper than we have here. There's not too many guys who run them over here.

    I think i have had it a year or 2 now ,finally put a good test to it making it a yarder pull point ,i think Genius has one also we got them on one of the charity threads a while back. The pickup back end was coming off the ground a few times ,may have bent my class 3 hitch .

    I need some suggestions for an axe for pounding wedges that is a chopping axe also not a splitting one ,my 26 husqvarna does it ,but the head is kind of light for wedges and is coming loose from it ,whats a good one to get ? Be nice if it sticks in the tree like the husky one does to hold it while cutting .It needs to be able to chop also in case i pinch the bar and have to cut it out .

    Council rafting pattern, 4# if you can find one 5's and 3.5's are nore common

    The 5# is a wedge smearing beastie they hold a good edge too

    4 and a 5lbs council work ok, one of my 5's we added a 1/2 plate on the hammering end and a 36" handle for oversize back leaners, my others I cut off at about 20" handle to my personal liking. All the above I can set in a tree in between beating my guts out.

    There was some wedges I used to get that had a deal that would keep the wedges aligned well stacking I want to say it was black bear or something.

    I don't work enough for my opinion to be worth two cents. I gave Treeslayer a 5# Rafting Plumb head a few years ago. He doesn't post here anymore but I believe he is a regular on SH. He should be able to give a real world opinion. Never chopped with mine but it drives wedges well for me.
