Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Done that many. A time.
+1 with my Dad with his log truck.
Standing under that log, safety first. That helmet is going to save you!😎
Definitely a "When men were men" moment
It takes a man to be a logger, or a truck driver, hauling logs.
Cheater bars. OSHA has strong feelings about those now.
Looks like an off-highway truck hauling Redwood.
Just hope that cheater doesn't slip.
When I was a kid there was a guy at Spekens scrap yard who told me he could crush the roof down on the car in front of us with just chain boomers. Really? Gotta see this. Sure enough. Tighten first one and get it to buckle the roof. Next one even more. Really wasn't that tough. Seeing is believing what kind of force a binder can produce. Couldn't break one. Seems like the only way they'd fail is if they worked loose.
In the summer of 1970, I was just starting my driving career at 17 by hauling tree length wood to the mill 40 miles south.They had just converted to taking tree length, so they decided that it was up to the trucker to unload their own load, just as the 4 foot trucks had done.We built log bunks that had the "trip stake" feature that would release at the bottom of the stake on the ditch side, allowing a big Cat front end loader to push what remained of the load off.It was kind of a violent operation, and a scary thing to pull the trip mechanism and run like hell in case a piece of pulp fell off the wrong side.Good tiimes back then.
