    The best configuration for mini skid highway, what plywood dimensions?

    If stacked on edge, pinch them. Tyler Durden said rope gables with garden house to make the handle stand-up a bit, stiffly.

    The best configuration for mini skid highway, what plywood dimensions?

    Look for utility-grade or defect plywood at a lumber yard. One yard here has a people mill locally.

    Good Times with Tyler Durden

    Spoke with the customers, asking for a summer picture, if he happens to get one, or its not far off the beaten path. He says the white flowers make it look like an ice cream cone. These are the only other Olympia pollards that I've seen...

    The best configuration for mini skid highway, what plywood dimensions?

    I've picked up 3+ sheets of plywood in a stack with my BMG, and stack plywood on top, with the grapple uncurled mostly, and the rear of the sheets on the loader arms. I"m going with 3/8" plywood for my mini (under 3,000 pounds operating weight) plus load.

    Climbing an extra few feet

    Falling into a stub, when rocked by a back top-catch, can be very dangerous. I think that the pad is supposed to be 2 fingers below the bone bulge at the top of the lower leg...ish. Experiment if they don't feel right. I have climbed lots of good-sized fir in pole spurs, sometimes only in...

    Climbing an extra few feet

    Let's see your spurs. How did you adjust the height on pads? Pole spurs are great in thin barked trees.
