An interesting and challenging take-down!

Recommended Posts

I've just come across this video which I hadn't previously seen and which I thought was interesting. Not an easy job. Not having seen it mentioned on the forum, I thought I'd post a link.

I like watching stuff like that, better than telly. I thought the A frame was a bit wasted and at the end the tree hung on to the bitter end so it was superfluous. Standing on the roof with the big saw using it overhead was different :thumbdown:

iam i right in thinking that using your bucket truck to rig with is a really stupid thing to do??!!!

i know when using a hi ab to lift lumps off any little tab or dodgy step cut can exert a lot of force on the machine.

tricky job though without a proper crane.

I guess you only find out if the A frame is unecessary when you find that the tree goes up rather than down when start work. By the time you found out it was going down it would probably be too late.   Since putting it in is the safe option I think I would probably have done the same. I imagine that the it would have a beneficial psychological effect on the homeowner too.
