I work for a tree service here in the Quad Cities. We have a bucket truck that has a 57' working height that also has a jib on it rated for 20,000lbs. Converted a 16' dump truck into a chip truck that tows a Vermeer 1800XL chipper which can eat logs up to 22" in diameter. here are some pics.
funny things we find while taking down trees.
Honey bee nest
7' diameter trunks
and the 2 biggest saws we have both Stihl one is an 066 with a 3' bar and the other is an 880 with a 4' bar both sound like dirt bikes when ya fire them up
I also climb trees to take them down when we can't get the boom to them but no pics of me swinging from a rope yet. those will come later

Hmmm well the three Ford trucks my family owns and only one has ever broke down alongside the road tells me otherwise. The one that has was my brothers and I think the issue there was not taking proper care of it. The other two were my parents and my dad maintains and checks everything like it should be.
