    Bought one last spring but haven't got to use it much, but it will cut trees flush with the ground like the company's video shows. I was using it on a tractor with a hand clutch, don't think a gear tractor with a foot clutch would work very well. The saw was one reason I bought a hydro tractor with 50 pto hp, wouldn't want much less hp. Now that it is fall l plan on getting after some overgrown pastures. Still trying to decide which fel grapple to get, have done a search on grapples and am still not sure but am leaning towards a narrower one than originally planned. Just don't know anybody around me that has one to try out.

    If you were anywhere near me I would be happy to let you try out my 64" WR Long grapple! I think you would quickly see that with a 50hp tractor there is no need to have to save 100lbs on the narrower grapple. I was almost convinced in a 48" grapple when I was shopping by reading so many of island tractors posts, but happily I stuck with my gut instinct and went with what I thought was best for my situation. Boy I'm glad I did!

    I'm gonna agree with Piston.

    I've got a 50hp tractor, and a 72" WRLong root grapple. I like it wider

    I've got a 50hp tractor, and a 72" WRLong root grapple. I like it wider especially when I am moving 40+ foot logs like I did just the other day. I love my grapple.

    All worked out well. We only got about an inch or so of rain last night from Sandy, but so far so good, he had no problems. I am all for the "Good Neighbor" policy.

    Gary, if this was forest and I'm expanding a field.....what is left, mud? I can cut the stumps down to ground level myself, then plant clover throughout. Once it's ground level I could mow right over the former stumps..... My cousin took about 100 pines down from in front of his housesite to expand the view. It took about 2 years for the 6" stumps to rot/bush hog away. What am I missing?
    Your stumps must rot much faster than they do in Arkansas, Texas and Lousiana. Hardwood rots faster than pine but even oak takes more than 2 years for a stump to rot. Smaller trees would decompose faster than larger ones for sure but a couple years ago, I cut off some 6-8" diameter pines in the middle of a road crossing on a creek. They were just as solid as when they were cut this past summer. I dug them out with my backhoe. The roots were still moist and green after 2 years. I dug out a cedar that was so old it had moss growing on it and it was still rock solid.
    There is a chemical "stump rot" that will make them decompose fairly quickly. I dont know what is in it but likely it is a strong alkalai.

    I too tried to get caught up with my brush hogging. With the drought this summer - my mowing got out of sequence, and the last time we only partially mowed.

    A few weeks back, I got most of our trees pruned, so I was able to mow under the trees - first time in about three years.

    Felt good to get things all slicked up!

    How bout about 4 hours of seat time and skid 2 cords of wood. Borrowed a farmi winch and went and started skidding trees I had already cut and stacked in piles on Saturday with the T190. Just going back for my last turn and I slid off my path. The bucket just sank in the ground to push out. So I hooked the winch to a tree and pulled me right out. i think I might buy a winch now, really liked it.
