  • You know, I’m very impressed how you know the type of trees, I’d love to get one branch of hickory for my grilling! We don’t have many hickory trees in south Louisiana like y’all have! I see that you take them down all the time! What kind of other fruit wood trees do you take down?

  • instead of just burning all the trees, how come you don't chop it up and sell the fire wood or keep the fire wood or cut logs and sell to a mill?

  • Chris, we’ll be driving back home from the Outer Banks this weekend. My 2 little boys would love to watch. Maybe we can take a pit stop on our way back home. We take 64 back through RDU back to 85 S.

  • When you do light that off it is gonna smell so good! I use cherry to do BBQ. That much cherry would do a lot of pig, chicken, beef, deer, or just about anything else I could get my hands on! Hell I’ve even done apples on the smoker, then added some cinnamon and sugar....mmm mmm. On another note, I love watching you work. You Sir have awesome skills!

  • No trouble to see why the hydraulic operated thumb is 'miles' ahead of this manual type is there? But, of course, you gotta run with what you have, and it's obviously working quite well in this case, by 'this' operator! Nice job,..again!

I’m having the ag Dept come and test a pond I have on some land I just got and then gonna hire someone to clean it up and dig it out, hope they do good work like you do. We don’t have but a couple guys to choose from in my area tho. Great vids👍🏻

    • @Richard Schipper I'm not the only one who has complained about the poor audio. Chris is too cheap to do anything about it. My hearing is just fine, that's how I can tell the audio level is quite a bit lower when he is in the cab. Those of you who think there's not an audio problem need to get YOUR hearing checked.

      B HarmonB Harmon3 muaj më parë
