    No, remember all the timber companies are out of work because no one is building houses, and then it goes from there to all the other useless crapola...

    That is pretty cool, I would like to see one in action, I figured it would be like that one that Holt CAT sells..

    That's kinda cool, don't know about rubber tracks in the woods. If you had a softer ground maybe that would not rut it up on second thought. That firewood processor that went on a skid, the company makes a harvester that you can put on a skid. It cuts the tree, rotates it and cuts it to length. I think it is cool but it may be limited on what you can harvest. Does anyone run something like this?

    That was done here in BC some years ago before the whole CTL rage, it worked real good.

    That is a tree damager its a sheer head not a saw head. A sheer head damages too much of the useable wood.

    This is a feller buncher

    Feller Bunchers can be dangerous machines to operate the house works can snap off of the undercarriage. They also roll backwards down a hillside too :laugh:

    You pair a buncher with a dangle head processor which t190 posted a picture off you can process lots of wood in a day. The Waratah dangle heads can fall trees too but most contractors don't use them for that.

    The dangle head in t190s pic looks like a 622. The 626 is a monster I looked at one you have a 10,000lb attachment hanging off a stick of a machine :dizzy:
