    Some dude with something like that removed a backyard tree for my lawn customer. They parked in the driveway and reached OVER the house. Surprisingly they didn't drop a log through the house. However they left hellacious holes in the yard from the outrigger pads. Like 6" deep. They didn't fix them. Weeks later the guys daughter steps in hole and breaks ankle.

    The best feller bunchers are on tracks can climb a stupid steep slope and have 3 or more "fingers" to cut multiple groups of trees before swinging to the chipper. Pair it with a chipper with a cab and grapple crane loading semis and you have an efficient operation.
