    I drilled some 4x4 oak with a hole big enough for the pin to fall into.

    No firewood splitter but I do have a 31K lb bucket truck with four very big outriggers. Now you got my mind spinning. I just have to rig up a stand to hold everything in place and use the rear outrigger on the truck as my press. I'll work on that in the morning! :D

    A wood splitter? Firewood ain't a hot commodity in FL, plus he doesn't sell firewood.

    A wood splitter with the wedge off can be used as a press in a pinch. I've done my universals with mine. Sacrificial socket also necessary. Just have to be ginger about it with a 21-25 ton.

    I have at times blown out the pin on both sides untill I could disassemble the part and get it to a press. Just have to cut it below flush. Hard on torch tips. You know....for future reference.....since you dont have a torch.

    Nasty, bad tree, Kenny. Cripple it up and break it over. Not much else you could do, and feel safe, with that one, and it wasn't over with the fall. Bucking it down and getting those straps off was another ordeal I'll bet.

    I'm still running an 020t, and the 200t that I bought used from Willard, the 201t I bought new from the guy who had two just hasn't made me jump up and down with excitement, it warms the shelf a lot. My 150t met her match the other day in 12" elm in compression...poor wee thing was like 'whatcha DOIN' to me?' I had to finish with the 200t

    Not a full size one, just a little plumbing torch. Can't hurt to try. The last time I 'hired a pro' to do it, it sat in their shop for 3 days while all my jobs were on hold until I finally went down there and removed it myself in their shop. Took me 3 hours and I still had to pay a day's labor for their guy who worked on it. Nope, I have until Monday morning to get it off and get the cylinder up to the shop. Again, I need it for the rest of the week so dropping it off at a 'pro' shop on Monday means I lose a week's worth of work. You got $5K to pay for the lost work plus the repair bill? I don't. I do pay for a lot of repairs but for this particular job I just haven't found anybody who can do it any faster than me. They all bitch and whine and ignore it until I run out of patience and pick it up again.

    I have a portable hydraulic bearing puller that can be set up as a press.

    That tree girl emailed (and or called) a few years ago to inquire if she could see if I could give her a head start to reach some of the larger coast redwoods or new discoveries. She got "cold feet" aboutDecember, and also said she had arborist CEUs to catch up on. She was also worried about rain in December. She was mostly looking for assistance to reach certain trees since she takes self-portraits. Last summer, I got a few photos of another Crescent City woman with the Del Norte titan, closer to the natural flesh style. I don't think I've posted it in the forum yet. Do I have your email right > stigbredsgaard ?? Could email that version just for a screensaver, etc..

    Have to be a big one! I've tried it before on a couple others from the last truck and it never worked. If it's bad enough to be this hard then it's too hard for a typical shop press. I just got it to move another inch. Getting closer!

    I'm guessing a shop press would have been ideal for that job???

    Outrigger started leaking bad on a big condo job this week. Trying to get the cylinder out to get it fixed on Monday, need the truck Tuesday thru Thursday. Spent 4 hours on it getting this far, 3 hours of beating on this damn pin. The pin holds the end of the cylinder inside the square tube as well as holding the foot on the end. Can't do anything with it until I get it out of the tube. Even bought a bigger sledge hammer, just mushroomed the end of the pin as well as two sacrificial impact sockets.
