    2 dead standing oaks. Not a bad way to end the week.

    Storm blew through town last night. Seems like every tree with an inclusion let go.
    Lots of trees on houses, cars, fences... 20190812_135936.jpg 20190812_151832.jpg 20190812_152518.jpg 20190812_152456.jpg 20190812_165407.jpg 20190812_180024.jpg 20190812_191903.jpg 20190812_192025.jpg

    New hitch attachment for the front of the Giant. It’s a 25t swivel pintle with the spring. Been wanting to get this made for a while. Should make moving trailers a lot easier. Visibility isn’t as good as I had hoped in terms of hooking a trailer to it myself, but I’ll probably get better at it (just picked up last night). Has an ingenious little stand too. You just click it in the hitch before even setting it down.

    I just bought the skid steer blank and hitch and handed them and my thoughts over to my welder friend. Then I brought it to another buddy of mine to have it blasted and painted. By that point I realized it was gonna be a pita having to take off the grapple to load it and unload it/move it around in general, so I had him add the grab bar thingy too. Pretty sweet in the end. I’m just wondering now if I can rig a camera up on the boom or something to make hooking up stuff without anyone around easier. Lol, always something.

    You can purchase an RV back up camera, may be that would work. Wireless.

    20190813_172005.jpg More tear outs.
    Finally one that's not at an included attachment. Crabapple with white rot let go of the whole strap as soon as we had it clear of the house. 20190815_101130.jpg 20190815_101142.jpg 20190815_101227.jpg 20190815_134103.jpg 20190815_134110.jpg Ash must have laid down really gentle. Once we got it cleaned out, we could see it did zero damage to fence, house, or the pine tree that it had landed on.

    Hitch is working out nicely. Was plenty of clearance at this angle and smooth as can be with the rotating hitch. Really happy with the way that worked out.

    Couple pics of old Jefferson doing his thing. Nice when the next door neighbor wants the wood. Here ya go!! Not sure I would’ve taken this load over the road. New springs looked fine though.
