Look at how much wood 1 crew removes daily

Just wanted to show how much wood we remove on a daily basis doing our tree service work here in Austin TX. All of our wood is removed and recycled into mulch to be used in future city and county projects.

Say...How much wood could a woodchuck, chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood? More or less than your crew? Good job btw. I couldn't resist. Just one of those days. Our wood goes to a biofuel plant.

Nice rig. How many men do you use on your "crew".

How many of these crews do you have that are setup like this? I bet those trucks get worked pretty hard pulling loads like that everyday.

We have 4 people on each crew and currently run 6-7 crews daily. We have a tire that is tied to a chain stretched in the middle of the trailer so when we go to the landscape recycling property we just attach the chain and pull so that the tire drags the entire brush pile out, if that makes sense. It is really not time consuming at all!

So how does one get that tire and chain out?
