The money fairy has blessed me this season. New colorado pick up and the new Bandit 1590 with the winch! I've been working hard to get the powers that be to understand what it takes to have a good urban forestry program. Five years of determination are paying off!

A most excellent chipper! Have you noticed the trend towards tree companies opting for either a chipper, or a Bobcat and a loader instead?

Absolutely, the co's who get our big removal contracts do not use chippers, just big loaders. for two reasons 1 don't have to pay two or three guys to chip just one to load, 2 its much faster.

I just advertized a 3 year removal contract estimated at $700,000

Overall, it seems that chippers are good for trimming and the smaller TD's. When mountains of debris need to be moved, loaders seem to be best.

I agree, Squishy. But he's too damn uppity to put it in the OCGD thread like the rest of us. I guess he doesn't want to get that stuff scratched rubbing elbows with the rest of our gear...
:P

Around here the Ca. dept. of transportation, uses rock trucks to load brush by hand into. No chippers. I guess they think it is less liability. Kind of silly to see 10 guys loading a few branches into a huge truck....
