So I currently burn 5 or 6 trees a year on average as they die and fall (or threaten to fall) around the property. Anywhere from 40' - 100'ers. I currently dump them into the fire pit with the FEL and that works fine, but I'm considering a grapple. With the cylinder mounted so far forward to operate the grabble, am I just asking for trouble exposing it to extreme heat repeatedly? It may be pretty close to the flames for 5 or 6 seconds at a time. Enough to distort or ruin seals?
Anyone else do this?
