I was thinking I was going to get a grapple trailer to use to fetch the wood and logs. The last two days I've been thinking about this realistically while on 4 different jobs. I realized that I'm still going to have a lot of heavy lifting because of access with a big trailer. This mornings removal was the kicker, big apple tree removal in the back yard and I could only get my truck to the side of the house. Chipping wasn't that bad but getting the wood out sucked. Considering some of the 16" long rounds I had to split so I could lift them in the truck after I rolled them to the truck. That was it, I wont be doing that anymore. I called my local Vermeer dealer and plan to run out and get a look on Thursday. They are having a promotion right now and 0% financing. Cant beat that. So what says the real world tree guys, are the Vermeer Mini's good, bad, or ugly?
