Took down a big beech with a crane today. Andrew did the climbing, all the timber went to a local firewood guy, who supplied 2 trailers. We filled my 10 x 5 and another on the wee massey as well as a big grain trailer. 2nd last pik was 2.4 ton last was 3.

Looks like the hook is not ahead the peace in pics 6 & 8!


What equipment do you use beneath the hook. It looks like a number of componants and not seperate slings 4T/chains 3T hanging from the hook eye.


Do you use a tag line for the safety of the ground crew also to prevent the longer peaces turning into the stick.


Just observations from the pics without my glasses. Would be great to know your methods.:001_smile:

The last pic was lifted up off the street, after we had filled the 2 wee trailers we made a pile of timber so we could put the big lumps in the big trailer first. We reslung and lifted them in at the end.


Andrew has some pics as well, maybe he will break his arbtalk silence and post them???
