Soooo I had two massive dying maple trees right beside my house...... tree service wanted way to much to remove them so got the chainsaw out, hooked our 275hp tractor to it using some 30k and 50k tow straps. Did a felling cut and then cut 98% through the back side of the tree, went to pull the tree and the 50k strap blew apart. So I now have a massive maple balancing on a stick moreless swaying in the wind leaning right towards my house today. Woulda crushed my place, thankfully got another strap on as fast as we could and got it pulled over before anything occured. Never been more scared in my life, tow straps no matter how big do not work for the job, lesson learned. Hoping to make myself feel less stupid so lets hear fails you've had over the years lol.
