    I'm just Poe white trailer trash Blackie, and I don't play lotto. It's my neck n I'll break it any way I want. This kinda automation's inevitable anyway. Be nice to have it all attached to a powered wheel barrow so you can power right up to each tree base. Been watchin too much Transformers I guess. Towable with a FourTrax? Jomo

    Gonna use an itty bitty gas generator to power a 12 volt trickle charger, one of the extra quiet two strokes. The radio remote's good up to 100 feet. I intend to stay well within that range, fifty or sixty feet max. The badass crane worthy remotes that reach many hundred feet cost thousands. My first efforts here'll be far more humble n Harbor Freightish, I'm afraid. Gonna do my prunin in wrestling shoes n webbing gators. Nice tacky rubber soles! Been thinkin hard about the best redirect means for a 1/4 inch dyneema synthetic line? Jomo

    Going electric instead of gas powered like the Wraptor?

    Essentially a 12 volt winch on a dolly/hand truck, that straps to the base of a tree, controlled with a wireless remote, hanging from the terminal end, a spreader T bar, splitting the tail into webbing on each side, routed through your saddles upper D rings, creating a balance point just above the waist. Sounds a bit goofy I know, but it gets worse, in that once through the fulcrum points of the upper D's, the webbing on each side threads through each lower D on each leg and continues downward, till splitting just above the knee, to customized gator's with webbing going under each foot, allowing the climber to stand in harness, all his weight on his feet. It's a strange sensation, and takes quite a bit of getting used to. I'm trying to make the T bar semi collapsible, as well get its distance above my head just right, but still within easy reach. Incorporating a little generator n trickle charger on top of the winch n batteries is the plan. Ideally the whole unit'll weigh twice what I do, so strapping it loosely to the base'll provide a little give in the system. More a pruning tool than a removal tool, but I intend testing it on both. I'm thinkin 1/4 in dyneema as the main winch line, and dynamic shock absorbing screamers at the T bar attachment point. Should be an interesting R n D thread if nothing else, I'm too old for power moves upward anymore. I need buttons to push n triggers to pull n toggles to tap. Jomo

    That sucks. My mom, 81, recently got hit with 3 different cancers in under a year. That's behind her except for the damage from the chemo and radiation treatments.

    On a serious note. When did they start putting decompression valves on chain saws? I still have my dads 1970 Homelite C72 and that 80cc motor needed a decompression valve.

    Here's one from this summer at my place. 15" oak, about 40' tall. Dropped it across the driveway, right between the magnolia and the linden tree. I first had to drop the twin oaks and pine on the other side of the driveway for a landing zone. No big deal as it gave me an excuse to drop more trees. The frik'in yard looks like a rain forest.

    Cleaned up the garage and got my nuts and bolts racks hung on the wall. I've wanted a good nuts and bolts assortment for most of my adult life.

    Tree trunks or wood is like a piece of firewood made of drinking straws.... better to lose half the straws than all the straws...mind you there isn't much lateral torque on these trees as they are like 30' tall and mushroom shaped tucked down low in the buildings...clear from wind...
