I ordered a 100' x 1/2" choker skidder cable yesterday. Cost about $89 with swaging the thimble, slidder, and loop on with shipping & tax. I was having problems getting at downed trees on a steep slope. I am hoping that I can skid the trees up to the top of the hill in the open so I can cut them up for firewood. It sure would beat carrying the wood up the hill. I will post a followup on how well it works out.
