    Just a hunch, but I'm guessing that if you live in a condo, a log load is probably not for you... :)

    I had to sign a contract when my grapple load was delivered. It spelled out the weight of the loaded truck (70,000 pounds) and said not responsible for crushed driveways. They said they needed a minimum 14 feet from ground to power lines. The biggest log was 48 inches diameter! Most were 10-20 inchers. Everyone should experience that feeling of watching a grapple load get dumped on his property, its kind of exhilarating. My Neighbors think I'm nuts. :smirk:

    I take my delivery in the Winter on frozen ground so the weight of the truck is never a problem. With the first load I ordered from my latest supplier, he asked a lot of questions like how wide my driveway was, the height of overhead lines, room for turning, etc. A scout came ahead to check out the area I wanted the truck to go. I had kept the snow off the area for over a month to let the frost set and got a kick out of the guy jumping around testing how hard the ground was.

    That looks too fun and too easy. You are eliminating all the hassle. Yea I am jealous, but I just have too much I have to cut, I can barely see the sunlight here.
