Ha Ha Kirk, I think that 4000 will have a hard time smushing down a couple of feet...... good for road travel though!

Sure wish I could use my Armor fast hitch blade with an L-54.... Now that would be a snow plowing Cub.

Snow has started..... I am counting on Wally to keep me in power!

ED using a Ford 3700 If I remember right a friend tried to direct the fall of a big maple with a lot of rot in the trunk. Tree went where it wanted to and the tractor jumped up in the air and landed 10 feet ahead. The weight and gravity will do their thing not necessarily the way you want them to. A 10 ton winch and long cable are nice but no nicer than where you attach it to the tree as well as the sturdiness on the far end. That they are partially cut I hope the wind helps you. Downed trees can be dangerous too as you cut a part that is under tension or compression.

I hope this snow is comming. I filled all the snow removal stuff and genny with gas it cost me $90 to fill everything along with my gas cans too. Last winter fizzled out and i had gas for mowing in the spring......
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Hope everyone has some "blankies" AND working generators or some way to keep warm!! Some of you are going to be w/o electricity, perhaps for a while. Hope not. Be careful and we'll be thinking of you all.

Here's wishing all of the NE Cubbers tons of funn with seat time in the snow; I think I'll keep the midwest mud and 37 degrees on this round of weather.

I'm most always ready for anything, and did all the little chores last night to prep. extra wood for the shop, generator full, snow blower full, and gas cans full.

I still enjoy a good snow, but since i've got to pay the plow guy for the office, that detracts from it some. Bob, you've got to get some more snow in Colorado, i'll be out on the 19th
