Novel. Did someone commission this purely for their own pleasure or were they somehow compelled/incentivised?

Ecologist mate who lives nearby.  He recently did me a favour so this was a return favour.

That they can mate! If you're up this give me a shout as I'm working just close to Richmond. I'd be more than happy to show you the machine and the site etc.

I would love to. In other news the Igland Skyline is starting to come together. Wot twat had it before - hadn't even put key in shaft to drive the clutch hub! Trying to lift a loaded drum off to replace that would have blown yr gasket. K

Go find a lad who is solid on his SRT technique n can tailor a system to yr needs. Don't let yr body keep getting bashed, you only have the one ! K

Climbing is the least “body bashing” thing I do.

 

Lifting, raking, shoveling grindings are much worse.

Two dead ivy covered pops to come out of a garden.

 

Difficult access as you can see.

 

Lifted the gates off the hinges to give us a bit of wriggle room. 

 

All out and loaded by 2.30.

 

Have ducked and dived to avoid the heat this week, but today was cool and fresh.

A few decent sized spruce this morning.
You know they're big when you can cut 3.1 pulp from the branches!
More to do on the same site, but will have to clear what's down to make room for the rest.
Getting all the wood out could get messy if the rain doesn't let up!20190810_094520.jpeg20190810_143037.jpeg20190810_112015.jpeg

Nice, what do you mean 3.1 pulp?

I usually buy a few loads of spruce for the processor, generally in 3-3.2 meter lengths often referred to as 3.1 pulp, around these parts at least..
Decided to make the most of what was available here(all the wood is coming back to my yard) and cut myself a few lengths to top up next years softwood log pile (I should say stack, but it's more of a pile if I'm to be honest!)
