Pulling down a tree with a wheel loader

Using a Cat 930 wheel loader to pull a dead hickory tree down that was leaning towards power lines. Then using a mini excavator to stack the wood.




  • rigging up for a short video like this would take Hollywood a million. How does this guy do it? OOOhhhh Yeah no actors!

  • what did it cost Andrew to make this video? Cheaper than paying Tom Hanks 25 million and a cut to act as the bulldozer driver. big movie Hollywood etc has had it when their space fantasy runs out.

  • 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.

  • @Andrew Camarata I just found one at my local TSC (6-3-21) for like $10. It was called: Utility Spud Ratchet Wrench. 3/8 and 1/2 inch drives. spike, and a small claw hammer built into it.

    • @Andrew Camarata it was black. Like a powder coat or some kind of oxide. Not the exact same thing, but seems to have the same features. Edit: Love the videos. You've helped me through this tough time and brought me some zen and some good ideas for home. Thank you so much.

  • 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?

  • I’ve got a few of those ratchets from tractor supply, bought them on sale for like $6 and I have used and abused those like no other and have beat on them and beat with them. Still holding up. My local TSC still carries them just in the powder coated black not orange. I also like how simple the design is and beefy it is. Just a little lever on the side to change direction, no springs or none of the other stuff like your regular ratchets.
