Tree Job from hell

So I took this big tree job, 5 miles of trees, we did 4 miles in about 3 days, day 4, and I get rented dozer so stuck I had to bring out the big boys. Needless to say when I was all done with the job I broke even

Got a Winch truck stuck, got payloader stuck pulling winch truck out, had to use excavator to dig around dozer.. and Big Tracked Case IH with 100 ton winch to pull it all out

Once we finally got out we made this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YNXr...ONPWF2haYvYp0g

The farmer didn't want spend the money on that, we just put them in huge piles every 1/2 mile or so, he will burn them and bury them in a few years, they where in field and he was sick of farming around them

You would have been better with a 200 size excavator to dig and push them over then pile. I can see how you got is stuck.

After we would get a row out we would go back drop ripper and get roots we missed, and come along with Bobcat and grapple fork and clean up the left overs
