    The new guy is working out ok. He has a little bit of a too primitive style of climbing I’m not cool with but refuses to incorporate new stuff. He works the ground well though. Enough to ignore the extreme occasional racism.
    Know the guy for a long time. Never knew he harbored extreme views. I try to keep discussions away from these issues.

    Got a pinhole in one of the air tanks on the bucket and I can’t get a replacement. I have to find a tank of the same diameter with the right ports and have it cut and welded.

    That’s great that he works the ground and all, but from my experience those kind are rarely content in situations like that for very long (second fiddle, if you will). I’m betting as time goes on you’ll be hearing more and more racist and derogatory remarks.

    I don’t mean to be negative, and I hope it doesn’t turn out like that for you. I guess I’m just speaking from my own experiences is all. I swear I’ve hired that same guy!!

    Took out a bunch of mid sized trees. It was hot!

    My back up whipper chipper over heated so I checked the fluids and changed the oil. Ran nice tonight. Tomorrow's another day. The woodchuck has been at the shop with a bad clutch for a month. Cant wait to get it back.

    Another company let me borrow their BMG broom to try it out. We were on a hillside and in very short cut grass. The kind that has little or no roots. Ripped up a bit but really not to bad for removing 6 decent sized dead ash. I like it

    A buddy of mine had one and we had just got done doing a stone dead American elm that just got bombed. there was shrapnel everywhere I thought I was looking at a 2 hr rake job he pulled that bad boy out and it definitely impressed me! Wish we had one when we were doing a DED parkway contract several years ago that would have been nice.

    This place has one of the softest, most plush, green lawns yet. Gotta be on a lot of chemicals. Not leaving any plywood down too long here, I know it’ll discolor. Nice the way the lift puts hardly any pressure on even wettest lawns with the plywood. Amazing the difference without that extra 20k lbs the bucket has over this thing.

    Wasted half the day locating a fuel filter for the Giant before it totally died (was on the way Saturday). I guess that’s why it’s called preventative maintenance. I did just do the 250 hour oil change, I was supposed to do the fuel filter when I changed the break oil at 50 hours. Guess I missed that detail. But we picked it up and got the rest of the silver we started Saturday down and out, plus some wood from the last couple trees dumped along with. Not a bad day for a Monday.

    Knocked down a storm damaged choke cherry after a bunch of aspens. Root flare was cool. Had to go back to the truck for a bigger saw. 20190916_184418.jpg
    Gotta call my wood turner. He'll love it. Too bad the inclusion is so deep.
