Wtf you rambling about now lol. You better clean the chipper it's dirty
Hey Rope, you still got that ole loader truck?
Fun project I bought last year on CList for $250. (guy was gonna junk it otherwise for metal weight $) is coming along. Had Suder Engine go over the Continental 4 Cylinder engine and it cost $1750. Much of that was a new radiator. Engine was perfect and now starts up with the first button push and purrs all day long. Then took it to my friend Steve Viola at Forest Lytle and have not got the bill yet but he said the pump ran perfect and he did very little to it. It sprayed an entire nursery up in Mason from bought new in mid 50's. Every use it then went into a barn. Pump was packed each winter with vegetable oil so no freeze cracks in cast iron pump and seals stayed ....well...sealing. This has a huge Bean 60 gallon per minute pump and will spray well over 100 feet and the approx. 600 gallon tank will be a huge improvement from the 200 gallon tank I have now on a much smaller sprayer that makes big $ fertilizing and spraying trees....
My last "big" sprayer was this ole 1938 Bean with a Hercules engine I renovated that I made pocketfuls of cash back in the 70's spraying Gypsy Moth in NJ. I sold it about 20 years ago but think I may need a big sprayer again...Any of you guys run sprayers?.
Those Hercules were tough for sure nah its already gone was hard to part with but the time had came.
Did you do mist blowing in nj lol. I can't believe us old timers survived mist blowers the skeeter trucks lol man those ****ers stank . I remember the ddt squad too lol
Call me crazy, but I feel like that's not an approved felling cut... Methinks the homeowner got lucky on this one. We did the other 7, and had to clean this mess up with them.
Bet you that bar is useless now
Out for a tour in the neighborhood after work lol.
Lol that sure would get tiring fast, neighborhood be about it lol
Got to work with 2 of my kids yesterday. Sent my regular employee off to work with a company I do some projects with. Turned this tree
View from above
Best kind of job, leave the wood, no cleanup on the stump.
You ever go by to look at a tree the owner says has a rotten base and the same stick everyone uses to poke in and see how far the rot is, is still there?
Guy said he didn’t want a crane on his driveway. I said no problem.
Who’s yo daddy!!??
so you drove on the lawn. big deal.
His truck doesn’t weigh 50k pounds.
Watch the clip at 4:40.
From the trunk almost uppercutting her, to the full rev after it fell
Btw watch all those "tree cutting fail" videos if you haven't already, I could watch them all day
Wait for the comment at the end though
do the math gorman, 30-35k on two axles, vs 50k on three. not a huge difference. the time and effort involved is huge though. to each their own, however.
That’s true. But that front axle on the crane though.... ultimately it was the homeowners call. They know much less.
My truck is more like 29,700 if you wanna get picky. It’s just a job. Two guys, a bucket and a tractor took a day to get that mess off the house. No crane needed, per customer request. We’ve moved onto the other 20k worth of non crane related TREEWORK now.
Everybody’s an arborist.
Regardless of whether or not they can start a chainsaw,,,
there is no doubt that you are acknowledgeable, hard working guy that has an admirable set up of equipment now. a some point in time, you will get older and realize its not a tree vs man thing, its a working smarter thing. I'm pretty sure thats why you bought that beautiful new equipment! try to drag yourself out of the dark ages.
