For all you logging guys, here's a piece of machinery you may want to model.
Enjoy

I've seen that before. It's a sweet heart. Have you seen the one that works under water?

But back in the old days, I remember when they had these things called an axe...
Damn, that looks like some angry little robot from the Matrix! Talk about turning a tree into a toothpick. What am I supposed to do with all them old donkey engines, spar trees and long saws now?

Thanks for the link Ralph, certainly puts "progress" into perspective.

Wow, the poor squirrels in the trees would never know what hit them!

That is one efficient tree killing machine.

I saw that thing featured on a show on the Discovery channel a few months back. Very impressive piece of machinery. Wonder if the next version will cut it into 2x4's too?

The size of some of the timber they harvest today they'll be lucky to get more than one 2x4 out of one of those trees.
