Nice. Ive often thought about something similar, never implemented. How do you think the labour costs compared vs a few ground guys and a crap drag?

Dave and i would still got it done if Id cut it small and thrown it to the base of the tree....but it would've been more time and energy spent. Not only because of the extra climbing/cutting and walking back and forth.....but also due the the limbs breaking up into little bits on impact. A big incentive here was delivering the limbs to the chipper in tact. Our rigging was very simple too and slick too. Would be very difficult for it to get tangled
