    Was so excited today, our local Blacksmith brought our wacky concept to life and delivered so I quickly raced up to our little coupe for some barking mad tests:



    I fair dinkum got a twitch in my jocks upon first insertion:



    Disaster, damn thing follows the point of least resistance straight back up off the Sapwood and is exhausting attempting to keep it on a straight track to the end:



    Our original lightweight 5 minute popping crowbar/spuds are still number #1, was worth having a crack though, no harm no foul

    The joys of the keyboard wording construction, my apologies Nico Mate, didn’t mean that honestly
    Jokes aside, deliberately went with the lesser 4,200psi purchase back then as was lead to believe users needed a licence for greater than 4,500psi wicked toe cutoff variants maybe?

    Couldn't you run a line up the trunk with a chainsaw to create a path of least resistance?

    Now that is a great idea thanks Avo Mate
    Have watched the mills out the back of Hervey Bay region use their huge loaders and skidders debarking telephone pole sized timbers, worked extremely fast but left too many black tyre marks for our finished product needs without a heap of sanding work back at the yard.
    Chains on our little Kanga loader could work nicely too we’ll try firstly, might even leave a funky distressed look to the surface if they do break through.
    It will hopefully help getting it started that’s for sure thanks again mate, where it gets stuck on these Sugar Gums specifically is they are self pruning in their plantation environment so the bark gets quite attached wherever the small limbs were previously hiding underneath.
