    Default Tree-getter

    Here's my version. After using it for several days, I discovered it is way over-built, but that's not a problem. More fingers are in the works, I had to prove to myself it would work first. Now I have to figure out what color to paint it...

    Now let me see......you have a NH1725, right? O.K........hmm[img]/w3tcompact/icons/hmm.gif[/img]? Gee, I don't know. Maybe <font color=blue>BLUE</font color=blue> might work? [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    It is a GREAT looking tree getter! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    I'm getting a severe case of welder envy, Paul. Nicely done.

    <font color=blue>it is way over-built</font color=blue>

    Ain't no such thing.

    Gary, please don't take this the wrong way. I don't want to sound like Richard Cranium, but yes, blue is the obvious color. Believe it or not, what's left of the yellow does make it more visible in a dark shed. I don't want to be tripping over this thing. But the <font color=yellow>yellow</font color=yellow> is associated with <font color=green>green</font color=green>. Safety <font color=orange>orange</font color=orange> would work that wouldn't make sense either. You're right, I'll just paint it <font color=blue>blue</font color=blue>.

    Antique tractors have often been referred to as "over-built". But, there are thousands of them over 60 years old that are still in use! I agree that there's no such thing as over-built.

    Darn good ideal Paul.

    Looks like you have more uses than a tree-getter..rock remover,w/a platform install a carry all,loosen up a hard bank for dirt removing etc...

    Far as color [img]/w3tcompact/icons/hmm.gif[/img] <font color=orange>orange<font color=orange> [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Paul,

    Hey, no worries! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] I was just having a little fun, that's all. I was actually worried that you might take my comments wrong![img]/w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

    Personally, I really don't care what color someone paints something. It's their choice, and if someone else doesn't like it, well that's just too d_ _ _ bad! Heck, my wife (the interior designer) would probably say that color contrast is good! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/eyes.gif[/img]

    Just make sure that whatever color you do finally decide to use, you take pictures for us!! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Very nice invention. What are the fingers made from?

    Paul,
    That is a very nice piece of craftsmanship.

    Harv,
    I have to second your comment. My Dad said this morning that he has a chance to sell his small mig welder and that he was thinking of buying a plasma one. Heck, neither he nor I can use the one he already owns. I need to have somebody teach me.
    Maybe we can get Muhammad to start a some TBNr's corrospondance courses, where some of the members can teach us how to do all this stuff. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
