    Was the hook still hooked to the truck at a light duty connection, and they raised the boom, until it broke? Maybe paying out line as they raised the boom??? There is a little recoil. Seems if it were loose, it might move a bit as the boom is raised. Cable looks really tight with multiple legs pulling on the resisting hook.

    I'm guessing the pull rope wasn't very tight. No load in bed of 2wd. Think hinge.Newb. Isn't that more of a pecan bush?

    Some others that I milled, as aforementioned on a 20* slope. Until I got it dialed, I had a ski slope. Well, I free-hand ripped the butt log for loading. Next time I'll mark a line to follow. Correction is not easy while ripping in a time pinch.

    I thought it was a good diagnosis, too. Brian, I'm also misunderstood in writing a lot. It'll be a cool day when forums will just have little video snips. Rather than writing LOL, you will see someone's coffee on the screen. Until then, we have to hope they develop the missing emojis, like being facetious, a tip of the hat, and one for when someone IS being sarcastic.

    Screwing around. With some cooling time, wedging time, and shaving the butt end, 15 minutes cut time. I got lucky the far end was Max 31" (36" bar), just had to shave all the bark, no wood. 12.5' long. Milled some small bench slabs. 20* downhill, what a help! A stiff push broom really helps clean the surface, along with the blower. Less likelihood of mold. Maybe better to buy a big saw first, big mill second. I bought my mill used, and don't know it's actual capacity. My 36" bar is the limiting factor, not the mill.

    I was considering electric, but don't have time to explore that. You guys even milled cedar with a ripping chain? Obviously not ideal, but my down-payment took away a lot of reserves. A ported 880, 72" capacity bar, mill and chains is an easy $3k.

    What percentage of diameter was your hinge? Go get a magnetic bubble level, go in the garage, use a mirror, practice holding the bar level, look in mirror, and check the bubble. P.S. you might be tall, with a short bar, and standing. Looks like you need to cut at a comfortable height. Yesterday, most face- cuts were 2-3" off the ground, as I was pushing at 7', so I needed to maximize my leverage. I was on all 4's checking ALL my cuts. When your at about 1/3 depth face-cut, you haven't really destabilized most trees by that much. Calm down!!! Slow down!!! NO reason you couldn't have made a level back-cut if you decided to. Did you mark your back cut before cutting, step back, look, and say to yourself that the mark is square? You can't keep cutting sloppy and live.

    The Sherlock Holmes comment. Could go either way. F'ing text-online, non-real time, interaction. Quite primitive, considering someone walked on the moon and came back alive and well in 1969 or so...50 years basically. In time, it will all be video posts.

    The ergo fits probably. I shrank out of the Ergo. If it fit, I'd definitely keep it. Newest of the three.

    460/461Just for these cedars, way soft wood. One purchase at a time, coming into winter. I'll have a wood miser come out for most of the milling. Sooner or later a big saw.

    Awaiting new saddle in mail. Full leather maybe not as good in PNW... Winter is coming. If the Ergo fit me, it would be my daily driver. If the new TA doesn't fit, I'm going after a Treemotion.

    Two smc rings. Tech-cord backup bridge installed during the breaking bridge era. I'm keeping the green biner, sentimental value.

    Open to offers. All safe, working condition. I'm keeping the green bridge ring and red biner. Didn't put the gear loops on new belt. I popped a rivet. TS replaced belt. I might have extra leg loops, somewhere. I've replaced the bridge once, just because they're cheap.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    Anyone lean toward a 3120 over 880? Do I really need a 661 sized saw? 261 with a 20", 461 will pull a 36" in a pinch for straight thru in the tree, or 461 with a 28" for double-cutting in the tree. If I'm getting a new saw, I might as well get it ported. I lost track of the guy not very far from me, south of Olympia, who builds saws. Anyone remember a guy? Madsen's probably had a guy. A ported 880 should chew through rounds like nobody's biz.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread How'd it go today? in Odds and Ends
    I have been wondering where you went to work. I was thinking Amazon fulfillment something or other with lots of walking mentioned. Good you have two irons in the fire. I volunteered at D's school for a while today, then went and banged out 3 hours of work at a job, felling three true-fir crispies, wedged over. Then limb up what I could get in to from the top of the loader arms along a row of fir and spruce trees girdled by a past owner. Climbed up one, reached three to the sides, and a hair of the fouth. A bit more climbing, and I should be able to start pulling some over. Lots of intertwined limbs to overcome, as the trees are only a few feet, 4', 5' apart at ground level. Burning tomorrow!

    What stretches out the lifespan of your Only feet? This isn't making a saw last, its PPE. Don't skimp. I've gotten new orthotics, way better. $450 well spent. Not even a consideration. Doctor visits themselves mostly/ fully paid by insurance. Take care of your feet (which means taking care of your ankles, knees, hips, spine).

    SeanKroll replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    I'm a bit tone-deaf about that, at times. I'm wondering if I should get a double-ended bar and big mill, and run a 460 and 461 for cedar sitting in my way (about $1000), and buy an 880 or 3120, with accessory oiler and helper handle when I'm feeling more flush, winter is coming. I can buy a GB bar now, and the mill now. Buying the Granberg package is 10-12 weeks, waiting for the custom made bar, prepaid, as the 'small company in Oregon' takes that much time.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    Now to convert to square inches/ minute per species:lol: I couldn't resist making one cut today, but then was out in time. I think I have 36" milling chain. It was all I could cut with a 32", with dogs on. The knot was killing me, kept trimming it flusher and more. Granberg said saws need to be within 10 cc of each other on a double-ended bar. I've got a 460 and 461. Might run that on these cedar logs. I'll get a 661 soon. Or 880. I could get a second 661 for milling and all around use. For richening up for milling, people talk about adjusting carbs. How much of a turn? How about richer oil mix in the fuel?
