timbco hydro-ax at the shop showing how steep a hill it can climb. note: how level the cab is, it tips in 2 directions. if it has trouble climbing a hill it can grab a tree and pull its self up or hold alog out in front for more forward weight

Neat pictures, we dont have those steep inclines around here.

I have done a few clearing jobs on steep roadside embankments but nothing like that.
Awesome pics Willie! Thanks alot for getting those together. What carriage is that a mackyII? We had a mackI and a eaglet guess which one I preferred :|: .
Nice pictures indeed, Willie. I'm enjoying them. Now post some of the steep ground for these flatlanders to gawk at :lol: .

Nice pics. Another forum site people are facinated with this type of logging(sky line) never seen it even tho its been around a century. Some day it will be a lost art.
