    I like those! I could use those like that on my flat beds too. Those are a sum batch to reach into.

    Has held up so far, I figured for 6.00, I'll try it. I've hurt myself slipping off the bumper a few times. So far, they stay on and are not peeling back or anything. Been months. It has helped. Might try it on the trailer frames where I step up on the trailers. Granted I washed the chrome good making sure no grease or such before I stuck them on.

    Yeah, the boards would be a tad thin and short. Short may not be too bad, but you would have to strengthen the board with like a 2x6 backing. And there are ramp kits you could always play with.

    You can always remove some bolts/screws, take off the channels, chop the wood into kindling and put the tail gate back on. The rubber no slips might take a heat gun.

    Most of mine are flip up as well. Save one. Don't like leaning over tail gates either to reach into the truck. Especially my 4wd. Allows me to use the bumper as a step in as well. I put rubber non slip on the bumpers for that reason. Gate sits too high for me. When I sell a truck, I just put the gate back on in good condition. ;)

    Stephen, I always put flip up tongue jacks on all my trailers for just that reason. Tailgates are just too handy to remove from the truck IMO.

    Trailer jacks proximity bad. Heavy objects are another issue since people don't give a shite and slam shite too heavy down on a tail gate. Latches on tail gates always break. 3 issues listed. Am I painting a better picture for you, or should I have brought my crayons? :lol:

    IMO if the notch is so far off as for the tree to hit the lumber, then I can't see how a rope would help. As soon as the tree starts to move the rope would go slack and it will follow the hinge (and gravity) anyway. What exactly are you going to do with the rope to steer the tree? Pull it off at a 90 degree angle and tie it off to another tree? Might as well use a rope to pull a log out of a dump truck. Doesn't seem like good advice in this situation. Unless you want to play the "put a rope in every tree no matter what" game. That is just a case of replacing reason and critical thinking with blind obedience to a self imposed rule. And before Butch goes off on me telling me that I'm being mean again, I'm simply trying to get some educational discussion going instead of just blindly following rules about putting a rope in every tree without knowing exactly what happens or why. Robert has little knowledge or experience and if we are going to get off on a tangent it might as well be one that may be useful to his understanding.

    I get it from plumbing shops. Used for hanging pipe and mechanical. Has holes already for bolts as well. Unistrut or Strut channel.

    Thanks! Lol. First thing that comes off my pickups when I buy them. Still have the one that came with the truck. Damn trailer jacks are always an issue as are heavy things and the latches. So I install channels and use 1x6 off the mill. Works fine for the goose neck too. Looks redneck, but practical.

    Looks like a very old lightning strike. As Nutball said, the defect will not affect the hinge. Remember that the hings is the wood you DON'T cut, not the piece you cut out. The hinge is what bends and steers the tree. Since you are falling it with the lean there is very little chance of it going any other direction (unless you are very good or very bad). You have solid hinge wood on both sides. Whether or not it is hollow makes no difference in this case. The gap in the front has nothing to do with your hinge wood. Can the people above who said to put a rope in it please explain to me what the purpose would be? What in the world would you do with a rope in that tree other than waste a bunch of time that you should have been running a saw?

    When my chipper got messed up in a traffic accident I called a tow truck to get it home. He was able to winch it up on the flatbed and drop it off in my yard for about $100.

    Hate when that happens Rich. Been like that today here as well... Just go go go and damn....... Couple days this week I actually got some before and afters of a brushing job we are working some more this year. "Raking the forest" if you will....... Before.... After..... It was a tad foggy in the morning so the pictures look blurry. Might have gotten the lens misty. Couple more trips out to tie in with last years work.

    Wow, this is hilarious. First thread and you come in here touting homeowner brands while dissing a man who has been logging linger than you've been alive? He cuts more wood in a single day than you do in 3 years, and you have the audacity to tell him he doesn't know what he's talking about? Sorry, I'm not wasting any more time on your sorry ass. Go enjoy your hedge trimmers and battery saws for pruning crepe myrtles. Landscapers might be taking over this forum, but just remember there are still a few real tree men here.
