    Houghton Lake. Not sure if you remember, but I sold you a MS261 3 or 4 years ago. I delivered it to you.

    That's very nice.
    I was thinking of snagging up another L3800 and then selling mine, it had lower hrs and a couple sets of remotes, unfortunately someone else got it first. You snooze you loose :crybaby2::eaea:.
    I bet that makes using those forks on the back slick.

    Dropped this locust the on the 1st with a rope doubled off a nice elm thru a pulley. I set the notch up and decided to take a bit more off to compensate for the wind, the wind let up and I decided to go for it as it looked okay. Well it was about 2-4' off where I had it gunned, took out a nice red oak I was planning on saving. At least I got my screwup of the yr out of the way:risas3:. It was back leaning about 5' at 50' up so I'm not totally bummed that I missed my mark, but surely bummed about loosing a nice 5-6" red oak.

    Thanks for all the feed back!! I decided I would go with the Norse 350 from Labonville, but they are out of stock.
    Uniforest the next best price is out of stock. I broke down and shelled out the extra grand, and have a Farmi 35R coming.:applaudit::eusa_dance::dancer2:

    Less features more money but great reputation. Maybe it is like buying a Kubota.
