I dont like the rope to high on big trees,thats 17 ton breaking strain poly prop doubled up to a herc alloy chain/shackles.
This was an easy one only a house to the side of it and tree was limby but fairly evenly weighted,gets the job done fast.
It will get crazy/backleaning stuff where ever you want with the right operators in the excavator and saw. View attachment 258350
Well the question seems a bit vague are u saying nothing below said limb type of wood etc!sounds like a challenge... like you don't believe me... maybe you don't believe it can be done.... stock 66.. 24" bar... next time you're making any cut over 20" put the clock on it... then think about how you'd cut off a horizontal limb that was as big as a tree.... anybody here got any ideas?

no doubt, its fun and it pays... and this one's gonna wow you Ricky...
I have no desire to put a clock on my cuts, I'm talking about popping off a large horizontal limb here. You know, answering the question you asked.Not in 23 seconds... next time you're making a 12" cut, put the clock on it..
Ahhhhhhhhh did I ever say I hate poplars lol Lol nahhh, they ok, strong wood weak branched still better than willowLooking forward to the video's. Got one coming up, a tulip poplar in a backyard and very limited landing zone. Ya it's the neighbour's driveway. Also will post video
I had a huge hackbury several years back, multiple splits, no bucket, crane etc. I can't say it was worst, because their is too many and my memory is fadingStill have those post adrenaline jitters going in the body... Normally I like a good hit of tree excitement... BUT that's becasue on some level, I think I can manage the risk or overcome the challenge etc... In this case it was sooooo bad, it was more up to God than any mortal... I saw this tree and couldn't believe it was still standing... 44"+ dbh co-dom red oak , that hadn't been touched in decades, if ever, reaching out over the garage and driveway, split about 12" wide at the crotch, going all the way to near ground, with all kinds of open, buckled, and twisted splintered grain showing... the only place to park the bucket was right under the nasty split top... Managed to have a climber set a safety line, bull rope, natural crotch 2:1 system, set down to the GRCS... cranked it up and then got to cutting and chucking, and only lowered from the good half... didn;t get the call til 2ish... from the description, thought it best to stop over on the way to another job and take a look. Even with the safety line, I wouldn't have got into that bucket if there was ANY wind today... It was so still and calm.... very stressful none the less... Managed to get a good bit of weight out, re-tightened the GRCS a few times and set another double braid safety line as a back up for the night... At some point tomorrow, we're gonna have to rig from the bad lead, but it should be so light and so well supported by then, it should work fine... Will have at least three safety lines in by then... and we'll rig steady with the GRCS to avoid shock loads and use a double pulley system with one pulley set high on the good side...
ps.. some pics and video coming..
Nails,I have no desire to put a clock on my cuts, I'm talking about popping off a large horizontal limb here. You know, answering the question you asked.
Oh I see, you are making the 23 seconds a prerequisite to the cut method. In that case I still wouldn't clock it and just use the undercut with the Coo's Bay cut I described.
