ARP- you have an awesome set up, there's not much for me to do this time of year other than wait for snow and the lawn cutting guys are all getting crabby on the commercial mowing section so i spent the better part of the day reading your thread start to finish, you have come a long way in a couple of years, beautiful truck and equipment!

A quick view of the terrain I am working on. Definitely not terrain for a track loader.

A sawsall with a coarse tooth blade cuts very well. I have used a recip saw to limb trees where I'am standing on a ladder and I don't want to be using my Stihl 260.
