Finally ready for some trail rides

Post by MTPinz »

Now that my Pinz is fully operational and running well, I finally had the chance to put it to the test on one of the local passes. I don't think I stopped smiling the whole time, ahaha can't wait for the next one!

There's not many around here as most places are private or protected (not the worst thing) but we have a few.

Helped my Dad pull down a hazard tree the other day. It's great to put this beast to work and definitely in it's element.
The size, grunt, and traction of a Pinz is pretty hard to beat.

I've got a small clip of the tree felling but can't figure out how to make it small enough to upload so here's a pulled frame from it.

This tree had a wicked lightening spiral split, tip to tail which makes for hazardous conditions when dropping it...hence the straps around the bottom to keep the tree together.
The risk of landing across the driveway or getting too close to his house was high, so the Pinz was there until the appropriate cut was made and could be felled uphill.
