    lol didn't know if you remember that. Not a big deal on that one because of the lean it had. Follow though loner on the back cut would have landed it. Also its had to do even if you done 50 fellings or more. The crack of that locust is enough to make anyone jump. I watch the kerf of the back cut or the top of the tree. 460 would be a better saw to drop with as well just the extra hp.

    Dont think the splitter would have fit. Once we can get the trucks down there things will change...

    Once you see the the kerf lift then back the trigger off. LOOK Up at the tops (This is hard to do) you may need a couple more trigger pulls.

    I lifted out on the back cut on the tree hung on the hinge alot longer then I expected. Which is my fault for not making the cut straiter and staying in it a little longer.

    Nothing bad wrong with that one. Just really not much of an option to move that splitter. Your only missing drops by a couple foot at 50ft.............Thats good, And only getting better everytime out! Heck perfect place to learn!

    LOL a good 4x4 will not make it on this ground...A small tractor will. The pic's dont tell the whole story...The story really starts to the left of those pic's. Your tractor, we would have move the splitter and tractor.

    With pulling a cord of wood? It gets ugly to the left and a ditch that sucks you in.

    Look at the pitch on that trailer? Thats a boat trailer with a long tounge.

    Thanks again smokinjay for letting me in on this.

    I got the wood split, stacked and cover right when I got home.

    That stuff splits wonderful, it took no time to buzz through it.

    BTW who put the telephone pole in my truck... LOL guess I needed the extra weight.
