  7. Just a thread showcasing some forestry/arb applications for the Remote Control McConnel Robocut First up a video of a bespoke full guard kit, incorporating a towbar and recovery winch, being used with in conjunction with a 320 Vavha Jussi Timber trailer - I'm new to video making (and crane use) so bare with me.

    the 'todays job' thread

    I understand the science, but on trees that size, or larger ones with no real lean there's not a lot of point to be honest. Anything really sketchy we'll always climb. But if there's no risk we just leave the hinge thick and pull away.

    the 'todays job' thread

    Why is the winch cable too low? I've felled trees much bigger than that with the winch cable not much higher, if the winch has got the power there's not much point in climbing it surely?

    How many miles has your land rover done thanks

    370,000, 55 plate 130, but it's a bit like triggers broom, think only the chassis and cab are original
