One thing about cutting trees, you need at
least 2 wedges to jam in to the cut. Those
are then banged to lean the tree in the
direction of the fall. If it's not leaning the way
you want it, you'll bang an awfully long time

My "new" Governement Surplus Plotter. It works and it only cost me

buy a "null" modem cable.
One things for sure this 150 lb. machine is built to last. Make sure you
have a friend to help you move it. These sell somewhat frequently on
that website but I imagine there not many left anymore. Good luck!
I did a "helicopter" when I pulled it onto my back from my truck! Wish I
had a vid of that.
