    I'd assume any design could both lock and swivel, both options are so very useful.

    You can lock and unlock the Vermeer to rotate or hold a certain angle. I've become pretty skilled with it locked in free swing: stacking brush piles with 20ft limbs, feeding the chipper... The only think I want now is a heavier machine, stronger hydros, and for the grapple to be built tougher.

    I've never used the dangle, but I keep thinking I'd prefer the vermeer.

    25 tanks is half the use I have on my big red saw! Interestingly the larger size of the filter, and the shape of the cover where it lets air in could be such that it easily passes a large volume of air at extremely low velocity, so dust isn't really vacuumed in against the pull of gravity and any other momentum forcing it by the intake. Only what is closest to the filter will get sucked on. Then just keep changing an oiled layer on that upgrade filter, and it might never need changing.

    Just don't tip it over. I heard about a gas one catching fire, total loss, when it tipped over. Diesel won't do that as easily.

    You can recover much more easily from CO poisoning/exposure than Lead I would think. I hate how the exhaust on my mower points straight out the front. I too hold my breath alot and try to work into the wind.

    Echo saws don't need more oil. They can easily empty a tank of oil before running out of gas, and can easily oil any practical bar meant for their size.

    There is something to having torque, but with that big of a difference in power, well power is power. Torque doesn't do work, power does. I'd have to go with the gas because I like all the power I can get in a chipper. I'm sure it will go through tons of fuel though.

    I hope that's mentioned in the book, I didn't see it in the dvd. Very important to consider, I don't think I would have thought the roots might do that.

    If you cut the tension side without a face cut, you will eventually be left with only tension holding wood right? If you keep cutting on the compression side I think the tension side would eventually stretch too far and snap all at once, but maybe the outcome would be the same as my sentence above. I just think the chance of complete and uncontrolled detachment is higher when cutting the pressure side right?

    I call them relief cuts as I was taught. They can be used in any configuration as long as they relieve pressure and tension forces, though usually only used on the tension side. I assume of done properly one could pull a whole tree over very slowly without breaking much hinge wood by using such cuts. I don't know how well it would work, but I thought about it yesterday morning when I drove by a big cottonwood leaning over an old parking lot. I thought how could you fell it slowly as to not risk damaging the parking lot. Maybe a tall thick triple hinge with many relief cuts in the face and back, then pull it the whole way over (not cutting so much it falls on its own).

    Nutball replied to a thread Best rope puller in Gear Forum
    I have had those rope pullers slip, I don't know if it was from using the wrong rope, or simply reaching the max pull rating. I've found they have only ever slip when you about reach your cranking limit, which is a lot of pull, but could be overcome by too heavy a tree.

I'd like to think the 303 is nearly maxed out, but I think there's a good bit of power left in the 355.

    The 241's looked like the same speed, the first 461 seemed faster than the 462 (was it stock?). I see now in the description, so a stock 462 is about as good as a 101 ported 461? Interesting. You need to forget using the overlap transition. Just use no transition, or leave a 2 second gap for the transition to pass.

    It seemed to get big gains from what it was, but isn't as impressive as a 2511t (proportionally). It's roughly equal to a stock 355t now. I'll have to run the 303 against a 2511 to know which is faster, I predict it's close.

    Careful, they might bring you a new bigger crane :O That atom splitter is just so cool, I had no idea they could split whole logs. Not a bad idea for chipping soft wood, but hardwood is easy to get rid of around here, it is more space efficient to stick the big logs in the chip truck whole than to chip them if no other trailer was available.

    That happens too easily, I think bosses should frequently seek their employees opinions on them and the business to avoid disproportionate bad feelings. It doesn't mean anything needs to be done differently, but at least everyone is on the same page and any feelings can then be justified.
