I was down in Mexico getting some leatherwork done, when I herd this load thumping noise! This guy had a huge 40 foot give or take an inch tree trunk he was turning using an old tractor cut in half The counter weight was a ten foot by four concrete block!
I stopped by the next day and it looked beautiful! and he ownly used chainsaws!
Anybody know of one bigger?

This could come in handy. I try to limit myself to two bowls of ice cream per week.
