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.

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.
