    I doubled up mats on a 60 ton crane a few months ago and it didn’t matter. Sank just the same. Just keeps the crane from getting stuck.

    4 8k picks under that ivy boys. 50 ton w/ Boom maxed out in reach and weight on the lmi. Perfect set up. Back of house covered in windows. ***** laying all over the roof and house under construction. Not a board bent or window pane broke. The neighborhood brought lawn chairs and set up a gallery on the side lawn. Drone flying over my head. Insurance agent was there and asked me will there be any damage. He watched the whole process of my engineering stems to stand up slowly first instead of just picking them. He was amazed. I thought the whole gang of em was gonna carry me around the hood on their shoulders so many compliments. Pict doesn't do it justice. Not another bucket or tracked unit would have done that job. Would have got in but never got out up embankment.

    Had a close call yesterday. Had a red oak leaning over the house. Easy rig job but once we started rigging out higher branches the stem started flexing weird. To be safe I stopped production and back guyed it to another maple with a z rig self capture. Turned out I was right. About 30’ up the thing was rotten silly. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Sometimes a guy doesn't want to waste the time with some of that, thinking it's over kill. Your intelligence won out and it was obviously a good call !

    I had a great day having a snowball fight with my 7 year old son running around with him. Last year he wanted to make snow burgers when it snowed!

    I was able to charge about a grand more than the average day was all (no 12k job lol). Was a nice old guy and seemed kinda helpless, plus I didn’t see a lady of the house anywhere, so I felt bad for him. Thanks to the lift and accompanying equipment (think TSF) it worked out for both of us.

    No lady of the house means he gets to relax.

    That’s the way it works here too. Other half totally missed the house this time, so no dice with the ins.

    Not sure what was up with the patchwork roofing there. He was just another cheapo Casadei Tree customer (new one), so I’m guessing that was just a cheap fix for something leaking. Could’ve been a tree, though. No clue.

    I shot some grey squirrels, rabbits and some crows. With my 5 year old son. It was a all day project.

    We’re seven days into a good sized “commercial” job (working for HOA). I’ll probably almost miss this one when it’s over. Nice traveling to and from one place and stopping at a reasonable hour. It’s definitely a little more “job” than I’d like to be into at this time of year, but what the hell. It’s good work, really. Lot of underbrush and trees were cleared here, now we’re taking the big dead ash and tractor winching them out and sorting them with the giant. Pretty slick.

    Almost done. Ran a little over my estimate, but still a good winter job for us. Plenty more lined up too. It’s going to be spring before the MDS knows it!:)
    I got this cold weather **** down finally.:dancing:
