    More 420 Grappling

    Moved some old and partially rotted wood last weekend with the 1983 JD 420 and grapple. Still amazed at the back breaking work it saves me.

    Video?

    Sorry, that's the only way I know to attach video. I don't have a Utube account.

    So here's a few pictures instead.

    We are also having a new electrical service line put in which is requiring a bunch of logging work to be done and a new clearance path up the side of our steep hill. Here's a few pictures of that in process. There will be 5 new 40' poles put in and all new wiring installed. This will hopefully eliminate all our outage issues caused by falling trees on the lines.
