I took a look at it on google, looks like a pretty slick little grapple. Logging bigger timber and picking up logs it would be easier and faster then climbing off and on the tractor.
No , they don't work good for thinning, all-tho on some thinning you do have room to get around with out skinning up other trees.
More production would depend on how far your skidding, on a long pull you want to pull as many trees, you can every turn.
You need good ground, fairly flat, ect, you'd still have your cable for rougher going ect,[ ether- or ]
On a short skid this would be fast, grab-an-go-an-drop, and deck after pulling 6 to 10 trees. You should have 3 to 4 landings, that way you can pull 60 to 80 trees before sawing up.
Depends on the cost to.
It would be nice to have dry gloves
Easy for your wife to use
