    Robert...I remembered it as rotating more....not as much as I thought now that I drug out the video. I remembered the limbs as back over the trailer, 180 to the face cut...most were off to 90 degrees of the face cut. So, we were wanting the hinge to hold long enough to rotate the whole top into the direction of the face cut...fanciful, erroneous thinking. Maybe an oak would have held better...better holding hinge wood. But that pine just popped. My bad call. I should have either climbed higher or to reduce the side load on that top. Go higher, cut smaller...takes more time but not as long as it took us to figure out how to get that top down without skewering the roof. And lots safer.

    I agree, Treesmith. There should be plenty for a good hinge. Regards the pull... it was Alex, which is almost as good as a skid steer. I think the top was probably too small to have the hinge do what I wanted it to do. My bad for not reducing the side load first in that situation. My point is that the side load can rotate that top unexpectedly.

    We got the pull line for the top routed through another crotch which helped catch the top when the base et al let loose.... <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6dtBlZSbPkc" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Jonny is saying what my concern is...twisting the top to break the hinge...at least need to make Robert aware of that possibility. It caught me by surprise. I have my video uploading...we'll see if it is pertinent...apropos...relevant....fitting...

    What Ryan said... I pulled a top once, about a 25-footer which was probably a half of the tree. I had left a long limb out over the trailer on the back side of the hinge in my mind expecting it to just go neatly...Over the Hinge and fall 180 away from the trailer. As the top came over the remaining long limb interjected some Torq and the top rotated and went 90 sideways. Luckily another tree caught the top of the top and the base stayed on the spar. It had the potential to be real bad in a hurry. I got lucky. We were able to get a tag line up over this hung up top and I secured the base to the spar and when we pulled the top out of the supporting tree the whole top that I had cut was now hanging off The Spar. I had rigged so that I could lower it. My original plan to Simply throw the top went bad when that top twisted as it rotated over the top of the spar. I like to remove limbs on the backside of a cut that's got to be pulled over to take that rotational aspect out of it. That basically means climb the tree and lower those limbs out of the way first. I think I have a picture of that Wayward top and I will try to post it later.

    And you can go 2 wheels wide on the articulated. Chip gets his in some pretty steep areas.

    Check the fuel shut off solenoid. If it far a bit of anything in there, it will cause you fits. Should be easy to pull out, power upandblow out. My Dingo is probably set up a little different. But that happened a couple times here. But no dealer involved. Might check for water too. Maybe they put contaminated fuel init.

  1. Yeah, thanks....we can all learn something if we are open to it. Brian has issues, I reckon...I'll just let him stew and work out his own way to be involved.

    I enjoy your posts...glad to have you at the House.
