D8 Dozer vs Tree 

Range construction progress. After some debate, it became clear that I had to knock down the best tree on the property. A giant sycamore tree. 

Here’s the problem. It was way too big for me to saw at my skill level. So…why not use the D8 50 ton Dozer knock it down? 

It took 40 minutes and at one point the dozer was as deep in the mud as it is tall. The operator admitted later that for a hot minute he thought he might get stuck. It takes quite a bit of effort to get a 50 ton dozer stuck!

So…now the tree is down and we can move on to clearing the 400 yard shot on our way to 900-1000.
