Thanks, don’t think I’ve ever taken out a decent size one.
 
Back in ‘95 I had to “tip thin” a similar looking one in central London when I was as green as the leaves and way out of my depth, had all sorts of issues finding a reasonable anchor point.
 
I was crapping myself and the stoned groundy couldn’t start the chipper.
 
Funny the jobs you never forget.
I'd much rather cut one down than tip thin any day

Clearing up after last weeks storm, first job 5 spruce on a house, used the throw saw to cut them free, another leaning over the house caught up in a birch, side loaded the birch with a tirfor and felled then both.

 

2nd job 2 trees hung up in an oak, ripped them out with the Hilux, oak rootplate liftes, section felled. About 50 80ft wind blown spruce to sever from the rootplates.

 

third job today was this, 5 trees on a fragile barn, picked them off with the crane 

 

More of the same tomorrow!

Popped into chainsaw shop, farmer type in there with this saw. Had to get a snap of this unique guide bar cover.

 

A classic “fabrication maison”

More trees on houses, Using a throw saw a lot, its been awesome, reducing the end weight significantly before climbing (if necessary). all but the big spruce, after removing as much as possible, sat up a few inches from the roof. The big spruce needed the hilux and a 3-1 system to pull it up off the house.

Last job, hung up pine, ended up tipp rigging it from the aspen, cutting at the bottom over the fence. Biggest praise there goes to the aspen for holding a tree bigger than itself!

 

All the jobs have been going incredibly smoothly :thumbup:

A throw line, with a special chainsaw chain in the middle with alternating facing pairs of cutters.

Also good for hung up trees or trees on power lines. Can even cut through if the compression is on the top side, it doesn’t jam.

 

you'll be very sceptical to it until you try it, then it’s a great tool to have.
