    Wow is right. That is one heck of an attachment. The operator makes it look so easy.

    That type of harvester has been in use for long while. They are fun to watch.

    In the area where I live it is too hilly for much use. On the east side of the Cascades they have much more room to operate. They are used for much bigger trees also.

    I have seen that equipment used before. What I find interesting, is the superb skills of the operator. That parcel of timber, most certainly, wasn't "His first batch of Pickles".

    They've been around for a long time and can really stack the logs quick. Wonder if Paul bunyan could beat it

    Very easy terrain and that is a harvester head mounted on an excavator as you can see. Here is a similar harvester head powered by a dedicated machine in a far more challenging enviroment. It never gets old watching these things.
