    Used the triple hinge to make it follow the face instead of veering of towards the side with all the weight.
    Where do you finish the cut? It looks in the pic like you are finishing under the lean??

    Cleaned up leaves at my Sisters' & carted them back to a low spot today.

    Wet & windy, took me about 4-5 hours moving them out back with a trash barrel. I'd like to have waited for them to dry out a bit, but we're supposed to get a couple inches of snow later this week so I go what was down. the S. Maples have pretty much finished dropping. Glad the barrel had wheels...

    Hoping it dries out sometime this month...Mulberries on my place haven't dropped yet...

    Pieced out a some dead madrone, rigging natural crotch off itself. Climbing line in adjacent fir. Woulda rigged off fir, if too dicey. Self lowering, crash landing seeing into the drop zone.
    Low peak force, no rope burn.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Finished the pin oak pruning we started yesterday in the rain. Then on to a large red oak with a 36" DBH trunk, lots of big wood. Climbed & crashed down big leaders, chipped the brush, saved the wood on the grapple truck. Done around 3:30 for the day, but still had to fuel up and stop by the trailer place for the 2 piece lugs for our new chipper tire. Home by 5 for a date night out.

    I never finish a cut under the lean.
    Good way to lose a saw if the hinge doesn't hold.
    That one had front lean as well, so I put a little backstrap in to hold it while I fiddled around, then tripped it once I had everything as I wanted it.

    One of the best features I'm enjoying about my newest bucket truck is the extended reach. The lower boom goes over to 124 degrees as opposed to 100 degrees on my last truck. Almost 49' of side reach. Today I removed 5 trees from around a house, two of which were in the back yard. I was able to reach all 5 trees from in front of the house. And that includes craning out the wood!

    Thanks! And yes, I am very fortunate to have found it when I was shopping for a replacement.
