I had a guy come out yesterday and drop that sketchy ash along with a nearby maple that was also damaged and another problem tree.

I then took over with the clean up. The Ego saw, the Husky 50 and the Kubota are all getting the job done.

Cutting it all into rounds and dumping them in a pile out back so I can rent a splitter and get my money's worth.

The heaviest section of the ash was cut to about 20' and I laid out some 4' logs and hooked it up tot he tractor to create a nice log roll......worked like a charm. Then gave the Husky a workout bucking that up.....

I have been impressed with the 2601 pulling out logs, hasn't even begun to struggle or break traction.

Found a power pole (or telephone pole) in the river and used the 180° BH swing to pull it onto the trail, it'll make a nice flagpole! Then got the tractor stuck :confused:, should have known better, pretty soft ground. Good learning experience, had to use the bucket and stabilizers to lift the tires off the ground and get some brush under the tires!

Had to change the fuel filters on the BX this morning. I have been working on the wood pile for next year and yesterday it started to lose and regain rpms intermittently as it was getting dark. The filter by the fuel pump was pretty dirty. The filters had about 80 hours on them. I keep a couple on hand all the time in case this happens or they freeze up. It is running great now. I think I am going to pick up a spare fuel lift pump when I replace the filters just in case.

Did some dethatching with my chain harrow in hopes of growing a halfway decent lawn at some point.

Awesome. It would seem appear that one can still get stuck with R-14's.

I do have just one suggestion for the next time it happens (and it will :)). Next time, forget the brush, just use the hoe to push or pull you out of the jam. You won't even get your boots muddy. ;)

Anyway, congrats on your new machine.

River19, I thought I recognized that Ash tree from the Forestry Forum. ;)
Yup. It was too unpredictable for me to try on my own. My will to survive is larger than my ego......had a local young guy deal with it.....he usually specializes in tactical tree removal and is a climber......he climbed the adjacent tree that it was hung up on and took the limb off to allow it to fall more predictably. Then dropped another wounded maple that was in the way and then the ash, which was a fighter.....

I was fine with the cleanup afterwards as I want the wood, but glad I had him out and he made some coin which helps a local guy pay his bills.

I am glad that you used your wisdom and got it down the easy way.....by someone else. (y)

Now you can help me with this one that partially fell last night. LINK
