Might be small for his age but looks like he wears size 15 boots! I was 4'9" when I started at the age of 14 and was 5'6" by the time I hit 15. Sure he'll hit his spurt. Nice photos and glad you got to share some time with your son.View attachment 683675 View attachment 683676 Late start to the season here as we’ve been terrible wet. Bought an old Dodge for my son to learn to drive last year, and it’s been handy for short quick trips to the timber. Pics are from last week. Only had a couple hours to spend, but dropped a 60’ dead standing oak and started on a blown out Black Cherry top. My son is 14 and very small for his age, but is doing a nice job in his first season running a saw under a watchful eye.
My 13 year old is 5'7" and wears size 11's. It is tough to know how much more he will grow as he has grandfathers and uncles from 5'5" to 6'4"Might be small for his age but looks like he wears size 15 boots!

I like the hole in the nose for the helper handle!Not much going on up here as I'm still just running junk loads when I can so it's a good time to post up our tools ...
So junk wood, junk saw ... 40cc Poulan Silver rockin' a McCulloch hard nose!! It was a dead hand me down saw that took some work, grabbed a hard nose outa the pile and got added to the herd after the 350 Ski incident ... RIP ... and it's still going !

Hoola ... that a solid stack!!Some oak I scored today. Time to change oil in the ol tw5 and get some splitting done ! IF IT EVER STOPS FREAKIN RAINING IN MD !!!
Love the supervisor!! My current one only likes my wife ...Cutting wood last night and the supervisor keeping an eye out.
Kind of irritated, worked till midnight so I could get the wood out to a guy that's already rescheduled twice now. Just as I was heading to the shop to grab the truck, he cancelled again.
Ya ... 562 tweeked is a heella saw, really nice load also, it makes mine... well ... look like junk!!!
Everybody runs a deckover around here, farm country, but there ain't much out there I'd take over a low profile gooseneck.
If I squint just right I can blur out the Hooskie but still see the Ford.
That is a pile of weight for a bumper pull. I'll haul small loads and if they're loaded just a bit too far back it'll drive me crazy.
Yea I can’t imagine loading a deck over and unloading it. The guys around here using them are all paying guys to do the work. I really don’t get it. If I need to haul more than the 4 I can put on this one I’d be best off getting a semi with live bottom. I can get this 20’ low boy through any residential alley I’ve tried. As well as narrow roads through the pasture. It is 82” wide floor though so some gates are tight. Weighs only 3800 empty so it pulls easy empty too. Only think better would be a 24’ with the 10k single wheel axles if a guy needed to haul more cords.Everybody runs a deckover around here, farm country, but there ain't much out there I'd take over a low profile gooseneck.
