    Heavy and dangerous work without a whole lot of regard for personal safety in those times. A guy had to be smart, tough and probably have a bit of luck to get by. It seems more so in the past than in today's world. Probably it's just perspective though.

    It drives in a spiral up the tree pruning branches up to a certain height. Plantation pine kind of tool.

    They hang out under the woodpile, not up in trees!

    Yes it is a self climbing delimber, I've seen one up close...
    It actually adjusts itself as it climbs the tree if I recall correctly
