Root balls can be stubborn.   At least you didn't try a rope on the trailer ball and drive away at speed.   Those fail videos are hilarious.

Ahhh... such a feeling of satisfaction.   I 100% agree.

 

And then there is fire.  While equally satisfying it is sooo slow, makes a mess and is frowned upon by neighbors in close proximity with their windows open in the summer.

as someone who had a winch on front of their CJ Jeep

as well as those who raced competitively long ago

I can assure you a cable is but a rubber-band that can rust

as well as slice you like a new carving knife

DO NOT try to move anything heavy while standing by the pulling end

Sorry, but the award for "most insane use of a sawzall for backyard logging" has already gone to my neighbor, and this post does nothing to change it.

He literally cleared several acres of nasty FL brush, vines, scrub oaks, and saw palmettos with a sawzall. I looked over and saw a pile the size of a short school bus and the new neighbor loading it up into the tiny trailer behind his lawn mower. I couldn't watch any more and went over with my tractor and grapple and removed the pile. He generated another. I removed it. He generated another, bigger than the first two. I haven't removed that one yet so can get a pic for the "didn't happen" crowd if needed. I might even be able to dig up a "before" pic of the property.

The sawzall is a very capable yard tool, nothing better for cutting wood at or below ground. Use it until the teeth round over, swap in another $3 blade, and keep on going. 

Above ground, it's great for tree trimming, only limited by the length of the blade and the height of the ladder.

And A LOT safer in the hands of the occasional user than a chainsaw.

All true, but the scale of the project is the thing. Any normal person would use a chainsaw, a pole saw, and a bush hog to do what he did. One of the other neighbors also took pity at one point and made a loop through with his bush hog. But this guy is like a one man army of ants, just gradually moving mountains a bit at a time.

Another neighbor told me that sawzall guy plans to surround his property with an 8' concrete wall. To comply with wind codes, that's going to have a big footer. Just guessing, but he'll need around 2k feet of fence. Waiting for the hand trowel to come out to dig that footer. This in an area where locking your doors is weird and unnecessary behavior.

Right before we moved in our neighbor did this..  She heard we had kids and wanted to insure her privacy..  Three weeks after we're in they are tearing it down.  Seems the city didn't approve of the 8' cinder-block wall as it was just an extension on the 5'6"' wall that was already there. 

Not to be daunted she then puts a 3' wood fence on top of the 5'6" block wall, and again is told to tear it down. And from what I understand she got slapped with a fine.  Seems the city code wants to allow for the fire department to go through yards to battle a fire if needed..

I wasn't concerned about using sawzall wrong.

Also, why I got the cheeepest one,, If I burn it up on the smaller (first pic with leaves) ,, I'm still ahead.

Still working after the bigger stump,, so I "made money" on it,, the nasty ass blade is even still good.

If I burn it up on next stump, I'll simply shitcan it & get another.

We had a kind of similar "I know what I'm doing" experience years ago.

Two brothers bought the big property behind us, subdivided it and started building houses for themselves.

When they started digging the foundations my wife asked one of them if they were aware there was a culverted underground stream running across the land.

"We're contractors, we know what we're doing" was the response.

They weren't and didn't. They broke through the culvert and have had a sump pump running 24/7 for the past 30 years. Had to install a generator for power outages as well - the basement will fill to ground level overnight otherwise.

Rick was a lot of fun a decade+ ago, and I liked that version of him and we got along for many years.

Not so fond of the version that insinuated that I broke my wife's jaw with my fist, and that one of us needed to die to end her misery being married to me. At least he made it clear it didn't matter to him if she killed herself, or if I had a massive coronary while sailing offshore with her.

Does that sort of thing make this place more interesting?

But, he didn't say that in THIS place. If he said it, and I have no way of knowing, it was in PA, which matters nothing to most people. You're confusing places.

So yes, he made THIS place more interesting, and I don't give a shit about THAT place.

No - in THIS place (GA) he claimed I was a tax evader, and made a few other false accusations. That was on his initial return hear from hiatus, before I knew he was back and before I'd engaged with him - it was out of the blue.

Just because YOU didn't see it (or it didn't happen to you) doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Quit giving his bullshit a pass, you're a better person than this. I can't believe you'd condone that sort of behavior anywhere. Perhaps I have misjudged you.

He's no better than JT stalking me all over CA throwing shit at me in every thread I enter. I find it hard to believe you support that sort of thing.

So the question I need to ask here is; why are you so fervent about defending what you say are accusations?  If that is what they are.

I have been hounded, stalked, and lied about for years on here. I don't care to let libel lie unanswered.

If these forums weren't open to the public for Google crawling it would be less important. But when you search for things, posts in these forums show up.

Since I post with my real name, libel directed at me is publicly visible and searchable, directly linked to my name.

I could hide my identity, but I've never done that here.

You may have many opinions about me which you think true. I don't really give a damn about the opinions of people with of your lack of integrity.

But you have also made many factual assertions which are simply false, and could be damaging.

That this is a low traffic site relative to the rest of the internet is the only reason it isn't. So far.

We always make our own Alfredo……it’s so easy…..although I’ve been known to use more than one garlic clove…:rolleyes:…way more…..and DO NOT buy that crappy pregrated crap coated with cellulose pretending to be Parmesan cheese. Snags is right……freshly grated.

Why don't you just go full Olive Garden on us.  Put chicken in it for fucks sake because god forbid any true blooded, non vegetarian/vegan American could eat a main course without some kind of meaty protein in it.  Perish the thought!  And don't forget to serve it in huge portions to increase the obesity epidemic.  

It just a crying, fucking shame that there are few Americans that know what real Italian cuisine tastes like.  And if anybody says that they were in Italy in the last 30 years and they do know, I am skeptical.  It is entirely possible to find shitty Italian food in Italy in any of the popular tourist destinations there.

Y'all can eat whatever you like. Wrap your Alfredo in a flour tortilla lined with bacon for all I care.  But stop desecrating the good name of real Italian food and call it something else for fucks sake.
