    It's hard to tell what the goal is in the picture- it's likely either a stewardship contract or a fuels reduction contract on government ground. Some of those contracts can be quite lucrative as the wood is usually sold cheaply and the contractor is free to market it however they wish. One contractor here made good money on a fire break contract by selling all the hardwood to a furniture mill.

    I've never operated one but friends who have told me that being in the cab of a stroke de-limber for eight or more hours is brutal on the back, due to the jarring motion of the machine.

    I think it was going to be a fancy Christmas tree somewhere and wrapping the limbs up like that helps minimize breakage.

    Gotta ask. Is that a current photo setup to look old, or an old black and white that had color added recently?

    It could be a color photograph from that era but the quality looks too good.

    Jacob,
    Thanks for sharing the old pictures, I rarely have time to get the saw site but when I do I spend hours going through the old pictures. Stuck at home with flu and bored to death.
