    Just keeping it real. Thanks. Some Shit broke around here from that work so taking the day OFF (sortof) and delaying this week's job. Mike called in sick and will probably be out all week. I need a third body on that job. Client has delayed my check, so her job just got smaller on my end. Dingo gets new tracks and a hinge pin. Kids pastor gets a load of chips for his garden project and I get rid of mill slash. Trailer spring shackles on the white dump trailer and fix a left brake/turn wiring issue as well on it. New CARB for a brush cutter..... 90 some odd degrees with 90 percent humidity, this will work avoiding that swamp of a pasture today.

    Leaner.. Bored the hinge, maybe 1/4 face so shallow. Never got to trip it... fibers pulled as I was taking the saw out. Made some noise. Bridged the driveway. Hauled all the wood and chips out. Just had to slide it in the hole between the two other trees. Best I can say why it leaned like this all of a sudden were a couple factors. Beetles had attacked the tension wood side, not the compression. This will make it drier and more dead in the tissues on that side. Transpiration taking place in our higher temps this last week... Most the weight on the compression side of the tree. Started to bend it like a fishing rod. Fodder.

    Wasn't terribly concerned under the conditions, but I get your point. It would be hard pressed for that Capitan to snap that stable braid. When it reaches the machines capacity, it stalls out. No where near the ropes capacity. No shackles on the line. Crane strap around a tree securing the winch 100 feet out at a slight angle. Belay of the parbuckle set up running bowline around a tree trunk at a different slight angle 100 feet out. Parbuckle 3 wraps around tree to move. Winch says it's rated for a 1500# pull capacity, and I have see it yet pull 1500# of anything with out further mechanical advantage. You start pulling 2:1 plus with metal objects on the line, yeah, better not have me catch your arse anywhere in a bight or in line with pulling. Nice thing about a parbuckle is that it acts like a bicycle sprocket. It's a gear ratio. Little capstan exerting a small force to a larger gear turning the wheel, or in this case, a 36dbh log that probably weighed about 5 ton.

    The way the portable winch is set up, the operator tends the rope from the side out of harms way. Not standing in the bight.

    No gaffing these... Deader than..... Anyway. Dead enough to break off 36" wood and make it harder to clean up than just felling the fuggers. This one landed on the edge of a little 4' deep creek we DID NOT want to have to extract it from. So portable winch and parbuckle it was Had some 6" limbs holding the 30',36" taper to 34" log I cut off the butt. Still had to make it smaller for the mini. No wandering in the creek. Best get it to flat good ground. Moved it 30' from the cut. Fodder. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_mkx6QKAacY" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Had to cween it owta all da whittle twees..... Then we got a tree in need of discipline call and performed some tree bondage before the thunderstorms rolled in. Sent the lads home and solo'ed it. Spank it down in the morning and go back to cleaning up creek sides. She just had that car port installed too :lol:
