    What's your chipping process? (Moving Brush)

    In general as a groundman, with trees that require rigging the goundman should stick around to get the tree down asap and get the climber back safe on the ground. Stack the brush off to the side to keep the rigging zone cleared, when the climber is moving around you can get some out to the...

    setup numbers SD64- 12 degrees 72RXT- 10 degrees (8 with auto level feature) 72' platform- 17 degrees The tracks better with gradability setup. Side reach and basket capacity wheel machines win.

    Great info Al_trees, I was originally looking at a sd50, the side reach of the bigger machines is what really sold me. I was looking at all the external components on the nifty boom , the Dino seems to have packed all the hoses in inside the boom, probably good until they need be replaced. The...

    The dino 2 man bucket does pivot and fold 90 degrees to the boom making it more narrow, it would help for sure but still a lot of cage up there. One of the machines had an quick release/ attach on the man basket I forget which one, seems like a no brainer.

    The Dino 72RXT was great, the machine had a rock solid feel. The controls will take a while to get used to though, the computer is what makes me nervous, a lot of buttons to push and pedal to run the machine, no doubt I will be missing the always live controls of the old TEREX bucket. Going to...

    That's a nice setup, fortunately our trees are smaller, 72' range would the the bigger size in my area, most guys get away with a 50/60. I also do have a flatbed 350 with a trailer for my mini so dont need another truck to pull a lift. The Dino is a newer lift to the market, Ive talked to some...

    Thanks adolan, Ive certainly considered another bucket seeing thats what I have and am used to, it is much more convenient to use. The new (anything post emissions) diesel engines, cost to run, maintain, register and insure has me leaning towards lift. I agree 100% the lift option would be...

    The narrow track is a great option, for me not a game changer. I can use my bucket truck for 60% of the work I do which would be easy access for the wheel lift, for trees "off road" and out back I think 81" wide machine will be fine in my area, basically a bobcat bucket width. If I was in a more...

    I like the 500lb non restricted bucket capacity with the wheel lifts vs the varied weight capacities of the track machines for my application. I also dont mind more weight under me being a bucket truck guy for a while.

    Ive heard these stories about nifty, Im leaning towards Dino lift, also the dealer of Dino is closer and has had good customer service reviews which is more than half the battle.

    Lift Advice

    Hello fellow tree professionals, looking for some advice here. The issue I have is the old bucket truck needs to move on, do I go for another bucket truck or lift? The trees in my area are not very tall but the side reach is very important especially being solo and "cut/ chucking" must jobs...
