    Quality Video: stable viewing from the tripod and the drone. The less handheld shaky filming, the better. Just one person with his machines to manage the job is encouraging.

    Hey Andrew ! My grandfather/father figure was a heavy equipment operator for the Army Corps of Engineers for 50 years and he has long passed away now but He would say that your "Rubber Tarred Loader" Needs a clamshell bucket. I have seen him make Many a camp ground and many many roads with one. thought you might find a clamshell bucket dead useful and quite fun to use.

    Ok next on the list of big men's fun play toys .I say and earth mover or one if those huge mining dump trucks . Your going to have to grow your parking area if you keep buying more big boy toys LOL .but I suppose you have that whole side hill to turn into a big parking lot or you could just park them around the curve in your driveway before it heads up the hill to your castle . Your a king like no other my man. Always fun to see what your doing in the next video. I'm waiting for the helicopter landing pad and you flying in on your new 🚁. That would be cool. Then you could fly your equipment to the next job . Your skills are immense and your knowledge of everything is truly amazing 👏

    Andrew, you should have just cut up the tree into log lengths for firewood and loaded the bucket of the pay loader then hauled it to your business with the dump truck, Hickory is great wood for heating. Just seems kind of a waste to let it rot?
