    Great video Ben. Those Eucs look so much fun!!! 🖒
  2. New ropes...Sterling Scion

    Had high hopes for this rope, but not impressed. In my opinion it is not very static, milks badly and is very fragile.

    Hi John, really like the captain, I don't use it a great deal to be honest, but when I do its great. I use a little rope man, it's okay for prigress capture, but can't let out on it to come back. Cheers.
  4. 40m Twin Poplar smash down

    Cheers Matt, both tracks are by roots manuva, from an album 4everevolution, one of my favorites 🖒.
  5. 40m Twin Poplar smash down

    Couple of poplars we dismantled a few weeks ago. Measured in at a bit more than 40m. Unusual for me to run at off rope with my 65m cougar blue. No real targets under my two, so a good fun free fall dismantles. Took them down to a pole, which was measured in at 25m before we winched them over. Hope you enjoy. Cheers

    Cheers, yep the mini loader makes moving timber a pleasure rather than a back breaking chore!

    Hi, yeah the safe block was great, nice to be able to snatch onto it and then transfer the load over to the craning point. The rope wants down to the grcs and Phill managed both rigging lines. We also used the safebloc for double blocking the timber down but the go pro died. Cheers

    Hi, thanks for your comments. Speed line would have been nice although we didn't have much height over the swimming pool. Cheers
