    People have life too easy if this is all they have to worry about. Pathetic. Maybe a day or two without food, shelter or even safety might help them realise what really matters.
    ....Or of couse you could just use a D10!!!

    i wish i could tie them to a fence when we do our next clearing job and make them watch. bet they would just love watching us bush over big trees, then cut them in to pieces with our hydraulic shears and then put it all through the horizontal grinder, it would be like a real life horror movie to them, that would get them really screaming.

    Bunch of weirdos looks like to me.
    Would be real fun to run up on about 50 foot tall china berry with a 966 Cat and push it over while they wailed and flopped around on the dirt screaming bloody murder..
    Hahahahahahaa
    I`d hate to see their repsonse when I get hold of 40 acres of Cedar infested land...:bouncegri

    I take the video and the people in it seriously.They are not on any drugs.They love trees and hate contractors that clear ground for new developements.It is my advice for all the membors that posted before me to go back an look an listen to the video that Special tool posted.These people are kooks for sure.They will visit a job site after dark and sabotage the equipment.Or worse , they will wait until the new home is almost done then they will set the new home on fire.

    Steve,These people dont make any sense at all.I dont know anything about the people in the vidio other than they look and sound like radical envirnmentalists.I wanted to give the other members a "heads-Up" on these radical groups.There are job sites I have in south central Indiana that I wont leave a piece of equipment overnight due to this issue.I have not had any trouble yet but my nieghbor has had hydraulic lines cut on his log skidders,and found wood shavings in the oil pan on his d-6 cat after it spun a rod bearing.

    These people are not in there right mind. They hate humans and all man kind. They don't want to see progress.
    A few years ago, a enviro-nutjob group set fire to a Oregon logging contractors fleet of trucks. What was the point they were trying to make? Look at all the pollution they put into the air when all the tires and oil, and fuel caught on fire These groups have spiked trees, killing and injuring the folks who WORK, (unlike themselves) at the saw mills. They have cut hydraulic hoses on loaders and skidders, shot holes in oil pans and the like, letting the oil just run down the road into a creek or river. All for the sake of "SAVING THE PLANET"
    These are the people that need stopped, not the poor b*****d out here trying to make a living with what the Good Lord has given us!

    That would be sheer torture, and fun like crazy to watch. Yeah, let's put those tree huggers through their paces.
