    Default whole tree yarding, GC2300 style

    Had an aspen come down the other night and thought maybe I could (carefully) pull it with the tractor to the upper field. You know, save all that time limbing and cutting and cleaning up.

    Well, I was pretty careful about it, 'cuz I've read plenty about people tipping tractors this way. Figured I'd try hoisting the butt end up on the carryall, and secure it with a chain (didn't want any cables snapping).

    It worked pretty well. I almost got her stuck at the grassed ditch just below the field, but with a little back-and-forthing I got it going again and found the final resting spot. It wasn't quite where I wanted it, but I couldn't manouver as well as I'd hoped, and I think it will be fine where it is.

    That's a good idea, practicing on bushes, before tackling the real thing. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
