If i was in your situation i would not have gotten a bh either. I use mine pretty regularly though as I do my own projects and help my neighbors. The tree sizes you are dealing with will easily be handled with your new toy. Knowing you are on level ground and have all the time in the world I would see how much I could pick up with your fel and have the plow and imatch on and then go from there. Building something out of rebar for weight sounds cool too. Curious to see what you come up with on your ripper and rake. I like seeing all the creative things members on here make because it might be something I can do to make my life easier.
Have fun and any word on when you will be getting it?
Always some good advice on here to stay safe...
