Falling an old growth redwood tree; Humboldt County, CA, 2002
This residual old growth redwood was on private property, and was missing its top. This tree was in my cuttin pards' strip, and had 37,000 bd. ft. in it. It was fell with a Stihl 088 with a 60 canon bar. We were using silvey tree saver jacks, to jack it up the hill. Each ram is capable of 62 tons of lift, and we had four rams and two pumps. The tree was bucked into 20' logs, and the first and second logs had to be quartered, while the third and fourth logs, had to be ripped, so that they could be flown out, with a boeing 234 chinook helicopter. It took about 6 hours to fall and buck, and we were in no hurry, as we, and our bullbucks, were having fun, doing what we were born to do. When he crawled in the undercut for a photo opportunity, he was absolutely in NO danger! There was a significant amount of holding wood that had to be cut and jack pressure applied after he did this. Average age of an coastal, old growth redwood, is 5-700 years.

Bandit Model 1590, 1590XP - 18" capacity drum chipper - our most popular!
www.banditchippers.com.au - Our intermediate drum chipper, the Model 1590XP, has become our most popular hydraulic-feed drum-style chipper. The Model 1590XP features our oversized 37-inch diameter drum, nearly twice the diameter of the opposition's drums, and has a bigger throat opening: an amazing 19.75" x 20.5" (502mm x 521mm). This larger opening allows it to effectively compress limby and crotchy material. Two engine options are available - CAT 142hp diesel - or the big 6 cylinder 174hp CAT diesel with 905Nm of torque! The 1590 comes standard with Auto Feed Plus and the hydraulic winch to make the tough jobs easy. The Model 1590XP also features a huge infeed hopper that can effectively compress large amounts of brush and trees. This unit is also a great machine for fibrous material because material enters the feed system at a right angle, with the feed wheels positioned very close to the drum. We have another video of the 1590 chipping PALM TREE trucks and fronds on our YouTube Channel - check it out! The Model 1590XP has become popular among tree crews and Councils alike because of its large infeed hopper opening, compact size and huge chipping capacity.
