Lots of ice already calling for heavy power outage.
Yes we where....The ground was like being in a bowl. Only one way and out.

Snow I'll deal with but the ice sucks. Should I ask if your chains are sharp.
we were aiming for left of a tree stump and right of the splitter. Just got the splitter with a few of the top very thin branches. The trees were very tall. Lol
Well done smokin, new crew everyone got a load and no one got hurt.
I'd suggest an edit, I'm sure plenty of people view this site from work.
Not to mention the kids might stumble upon it.
yeah and you'll have to pay me royalties to use that pic :lol:
Note that we DO want to keep workplace / kid safe - the Ice melter shot was not, so it has been removed. Please don't repost!
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)
Thanks solor some of the best firewood I have seen. Didnt even put dent in it. If the 4x4 could make the hill things will speed up.
yeah the 4x4 had a really hard time with the hill and the snow. Luckily we were able to get everyone out.
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!
Smokin did someone put video up yet?
Working on it youtube has to view it. then I will post a link.
At this point no one can handle the splitter getting coverd up! If they see a tree felling it could get ugly.....lol
MMaul thanks and I'm looking forward to viewing it.
LOL It is the splitter shot I believe!
Like MMaul said the tree got longer on the way down. :vampire:
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.
We where splitting hairs out there....At about 50ft he was only 2 ft off...lol
Doesn't it always.
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.
