Awesome Tree Pulling Kill

I don't know if this would classify as a kill.... but it is pretty darn awe-inspiring. I am a senior in HS and we are building a bonfire for our rival game this week. Well, so Saturday about 10-12 of us and our trucks are out on the land working on it. We have a couple of trucks pulling little trailers, other people stacking wood on the trailers, a bulldozer stacking the pile and....... me with my 2004 f-250 PSD and a buddy with his friend's 2004 Ram 2500 pulling trees around for the stack. Well, the talk of the day was about this Ram being so BadA**. It had exhaust, intake, injectors, and tires. My buddy was full of himself and this truck about how cool he was in it. So after both of us pulling trees around for a couple of hours, we both spot a huge tree on the far side of the field. The tree is laying on it's side but still has some roots in the ground. So we drive over to it and it is huge. He hooks up like 3 chains to it and gets the chains tight. By this time, everyone is over there looking at us. So he starts by trying to just muscle it out....nothing, stalls out.(he has a standard) So he backs up about 5 feet and pops the clutch and floors it.....nothing.... almost pulls the bumper off. So he gives up and tells me to try. I hook up and get the chains tight, put it in 4WD and tell everyone to get ready. I start to let off of the brake and i can tell that i can pull it out in idle...... AWESOME. So just to make it look cool, i back up and throw it in 2WD and slam on it. the tree comes out in a cloud of dust. So everyone has thier mouths open and there i go....driving off with my huge tree behind me. AWESOME KILL!!!

I did something similar a few weekends ago... the tree was across the road and was about 50 feet long... it wasn't that big and I barely revved it to get it out...

Trees are a peice of cake for these trucks. I was taking one down once; pine in an awakward spot behind a shed....prly 40ft and 20-24" at the base....i limbed it all up then went to chock it and fell it over...my wedge didnt work and the tree just dropped down and lodged itself in the crook of the cut...still stading straight up! just hooked up the truck to the base...barely had to put it in drive and it popped right out. no ruts in the lawn....always the right tool for the job!

My stepdad pulled a 6x6 post that was 6' long (3 feet concreted into the ground) out with his truck... I ran all the cable and told him when to do it...

4 low, creeped until it was tight then just slowly added throttle until the post moved... took 2 tries because we were trying not to break the tires loose on the lawn...
