    That was probably on the silver my buddy did Saturday. He’s a bottom cut first guy. It might’ve just had something to do with trying to lift a piece into the rigging with the grcs.

    So spy this!!:****you: Lol

    I had to shutdown a job over the summer due to my worker felling a spar with a bypass Dutchman. We had a tag line and it had some sidelean towards a chicken coop but it was an easy flop. It stopped dead in its trajectory and started to go towards the hens from the bypass closing. It landed somewhat where it was supposed to but i shut the loader off and had my guys gather around and shame the feller on what he did was wrong and why. After speaking for about a minute I realized they had no idea what I was saying. It was like I was speaking Greek to them. I ended by pointing at the bypass and yelled, “don’t ever do this ever!”

    This guy is probably a better takedown guy than I am (we’ve been working together for like 23 years). 98% of the time he nails that cut perfectly. Generally, you’re right though, it is a dangerous cut - especially in the hands of a beginner!!

    Some people got hit a little harder by than others by the borer. This guy is a friend of mine, just bought this place. There’s more too, but just an idea.

    They are pretty tall, especially that giant clump behind the house. Figures there’s a septic tank limiting how close I can get the bucket/equipment too. Should be interesting. Nice to have steady work anyway. Lord knows I’ve got steady bills. Lol
