    Or rent this guy for $1700 a day. I prefer the a 6' head instead of the 8'. The six footer has more power than the eight footer for bigger material 10" and up. There is a lot of collateral damage with one of these machines they are a true sledge hammer meant to destroy.

    Most of these spruce will right themselves but this tree wasn’t left to chance. There is a bull line tying the spruce trunk to the base of the ash behind it and another line going back to a sycamore keeping pretty well pinned down in position. After I worked out the top where the tension was my grounds man unlocked it from the porty and gently let the tree stand back up.

    I think they prefer central lines for chemo........if it leaks into your tissue it can be bad JuJu. I wonder why your port got infected.....were they being careful when accessing it? Supposed to be sterile procedure.....and you should have worn a mask too. Only our IV Team can access ports where I work. Once access is in....any nurse can use it. Usually has a chlorohexidene wafer around the access point too. They talk to you about a tunneled access?

    A story from a long time ago .My first wife was research assistant at the Coast Guard Academy when the CG did the most comprehensive testing of all types of line up to that point .All types of lines such as nylon ,manila ,steel cable etc .Two senior honor students and several engineers were involved .Those ornery kids went on to be admirals but I remember them at my apartment drinking my beer and smoking my cigarettes and I have to laugh at that . I only lived about a half a mile from the CG academy in New London Conn . That study was as thick as the old Sears and Roebuck catalog of years ago once it was completed and I have yet to find any thing on line .My ex had a copy but she's deceased .It had testing not only on the lines but splices,knots ,wet .dry,oil soaked It took the best part of the final year of those two senior cadets .I would have liked to have seen them both graduate but I got out of the navy several months before the event .

    On that elongation issue we used to splice ,just after the eye spice 17" of white line in a 10" area . White line is soft 3 strand cotton with almost no elongation .That way if the white line got tight as the main line stretched you know that was about all the main line could take before it failed .You also don't tuck the bitter ends of the splice but leave a tail of a couple inches because the eye splice elongates also under strain . I don't think the navy uses 3 strand any more and has gone to double braid nylon .On that I have no idea what the elongation rate is but we all know it's stronger per diameter .--Edit : I just checked ,for insured safety against failure the safe working load on three strand has been down graded to 50 percent elongation instead of 70 percent .70 was the parting point of failure almost 50 years ago .---- .

    Sean/Kyle: Sure. But those things are all what my, "other things being equal," proviso was supposed to eliminate. Burnham: Well now... that is a real difference of opinion, and rather manfully expressed. And yet it smacks more of the argumentum ad baculum than the more cogent refutations that we have all come to respect from you. Care to redress the matter? Of course, if it's not worth your energy, I completely understand. Life is short.

    I think it’s generally thought that the pups were taken and domesticated. The relationship between man and dog/wolf is a fascinating one, how it evolved and how it benefited both parties.

    https://youtu.be/kDnA63lMY4k If I had $110 grand I would buy this set up. Around here with the fires, guarenteed work for it. Forget that chipper and multiple guys, for brush clearing or sapling thinning this beats it very well. Guy in my area has one, I was very impressed with watching it in action! Even 24" euc mulched. Very fine product laying flat and clean on the forest floor. Poison oak, woody brush, all no problem. Works on extreme slopes also. Even fits through narrow gates.

    Just remember that they are designed to sit flush on ALL bottom surfaces. I have heard many horror stories of folks building houses with them and having problems. If you are sitting one down as storage prob just fine.

    Hardwoods with hollow stems? Lack of rocks and other crap in the cut zone? Arborist setting with no concern of log length maximizing or the like? I'm not even in your league, but these are all considerations in my neck of the woods.
