Deadwooding Wellingtonias using 30m MEWP

Recommended Posts

just thought i'd put this on as it is my 1st go. Climbers would go up in mewp and climb the restof the way, while a groundsman would lower mewp and move it.:001_smile:

Nice tree and a nice MEWP! Yeah, sure does save a lot of climbing, they can be awkward to climb at the best of times with the weeping habit of their branches.

I want that MEWP! :001_tt1:

 

Did you hire it in for the job? or does your company own it? Nice picture, excellent sense of scale. :001_smile:

I used a 30m to take down a 120ft lime years ago.

 

I put the mewp straight up in the air with a "brisk" wind and it was a test of the sphinkter muscles to say the least.

 

When you look dow at the footprint of the machine it's hard to comprehend how they remain upright
