    Since Slapper "robbed" MY trick..........[​IMG]

    I just want to clarify this works on any engine and vertical shafts as well as the horizontals as shown. Also works to remove generator rotors from crankshafts, Remove the recoil assembly to access the crankshaft then only loosen the rotor through bolt. Couple smacks and pop goes the rotor.....

    How to unload a trailer load of brush in 10 minutes, solo, without sweat or foul language.

    Requirements:
    1. Lay down a length of chain down center of trailer before loading (hooks at the ends helps).
    2. Carry extra lengths of chain and straps with you to the dump site.
    3. Find something HEAVY around which to wrap chain / straps to back up against.
    4. Once secured simply drive forward SLOWLY!!! while monitoring progress.
    5. Collect various lengths of chain and straps afterwards.
    6. Blow off floor boards for that neat and clean look.

    Works every dang time, even with leaves.

    Hey herler..... Good idea !

    But...... Moving all these logs around looks like more work than I'd want to do, Then what if there isn't any ?

    Throw one of these in the truck..... Give it a couple stomps in the ground and go !
