    three quarters drunk and with a 20'' bar, took less than 5 minutes.




    Notice the placement of the victim, smack between two other sticks. We do that #### all day, its not that hard so quit bragging.

    SO WHAT... falling a tree in a tight DZ in the woods is a far different gig than falling it in a tight DZ in the burbs... skill balls and confidence... not just skill...

    Mr. Murphy. I cut second growth off transmission power lines for a short time. Second growth being bigger than any tree you have ever swung your bucket close to. Casting 100+ foot tops in places they barely fit. All the while the buzz of south west Oregon's power supply coursing by a few yards away.

    I wish you could meet and talk to an old high climber... Talkin bout men whos flip ropes where longer than your pull lines..

    Lol well I have been up some mighty tall trees but one thing is; it don't matter if your 25 foot up or 175 your just as dead if you fall! I worked transmission lines a couple years too and 500 kv you dont trim #### lol just flop it back in the woods all day long:cheers:

    precision fallng( way out west)

    I read back on this thread several pages and then to your profile. Initially i knew my diag. prior to viewing your forum profile was correct. If you like to dance and sleep w/ multiple women, your mullet probably listens as well as your clients trees, and... well anyway-the way i see it you will be humbled soon enough when a hottie comes trolling by one of your residential gigs,you will become distracted,primp,posture(next cover shot for echo saws.com)and after you notice she smiled back it wont be from your bulging arms it will be cause ya smashed your client Escalade that you said was o.k. to leave there.LOL :hmm3grin2orange:

    I am sure Ole Murph is just like the rest of us and like it or not he hammers them down pretty well. After the mullet "intervention" we gave him he is looking more dapper than ever.
