    Your guy wouldn't happen to be Rocky Mountain Wood, would it? They had one on our subdivision, it sure got the job done even when the Hydro-Ax was still clearing the road out for it.

    That is one good pic there, sure shows how good of a machine they are. They were sure built to last out in the woods.

    That might leave a mark when that Cat looses its grip on the log.

    Thoes TC skidders are nice. But I have a problem with that picture. The arch on the Cat is all the way up as high as it can go. The TCs is down a lot lower. Big leverage diffrence there.

    lets get started on them 1000 words, shall we...
    If at first you don't succeed, lubricate or make bigger! If you don't have a 'plan B', plan 'A' is bound to fail

    I bet that picture could have been staged to go either way. Put the Cat arch low, and TC arch high, opposite outcome.

    I want to see the pic a few seconds after that one, as it looks like the Cat grapple is nearly off the end of the log. Hope the operator has his belt tight.

    i saw my uncle have a JD cable skidder up in the air like that pulling a tree and then the choker broke... I had no idea that a skidder could bounce that high

    And the Cats half turned too, straighten her up and drop the blade a tad and she'll rip that chunk cleen out of the Tigercats grapple!!
