    Snow I'll deal with but the ice sucks. Should I ask if your chains are sharp.

    Moving that splitter was not much of an option. 6 tree's over the 100 ft range and everyone still has power lol wait till we get this 2 inchs of ice. (update on weather 2-1/2 inchs of ice)

    Nothing like backing a trailer down a ditch (full of snow) just to get on to a nice hill (full of snow). An an 880 just to drop a fence line...Priceless!

    No its the last one, looks alot better at the end. Didnt come close to the splitter fell right were we wanted it. You can even hear J yelling that I was to high in the back cut, but it fell perfectly. its also were I hit my chaps but from the video I could tell were I even did it.

    LOL, NO And I think you already know what went wrong. Thats what counts! I have a still shot that tells the story. Hang in the pocket just a little long on that locust its not going to come down very quick. The stumps are looking good though.
