    Really interesting, Sean. Thanks. Yeah, the idea of creative uses of throwline and rigging has been sticking with me. I'm running this over in my mind for the silver maple in the small front yard I got the job to do. When you say all cutting was done pulling a trigger..... is that a chainsaw on the ground or a power pole saw? thx.

    got it! ... oh, now I see what you mean.... if you have a BS you can incorporate it into your other pole tools. I don't have one, but if I keep going in this and work with bigger trees and/or thick canopys it is on my list

    That's really great! . i remember when a lot of us gathered before here; we had another hurricane with all kinds of trees down (lot less now). A buddy had inherited a hose that twin massive live oaks floating about 2 o'clock over it >>trees now almost ripped from ground, but then other trees laying across and under base stem to support and anchor, it was a mess. . Insurance would pay for house, but he didn't want to lose it, but then not much money, offered $300 1 Sunday to drop trees anywhere, try to miss house, real low-income area. Cranes and crews down the road like in a flurry of bidding wars. . i cut down a small junk tree in swing path to open ground. In short did facing over to down side away from house, then dutch kerf under house side of facing. 066 sporting a 42" didn't quite reach across. Cut down into close dutch on house side and carried the motion of the tree to flow into the facing, pulled by tapered hinge. >> working in unison , as a flow in swing concept init by down to empower and push/pull over at same time Spars were long and heavy at extreme angle to load extremely and Live Oak is mighty fine wood where other woods mite have done so well i'd played with this stuff before, not on this scale/at this angle; but had re-proved all to myself again! . i wished everyone was down here with cameras. i chickened out on drawing any attention, figured if anyone watched i'd certainly crush the house on the 6pm news! #2 went just as well! Meanwhile at AS the discussion on my lil'discussion on Tapered Hinge was not going so well; even tho i acknowledged i was crazy; i still insisted tapered hinge was not! Dutchman for felling/bucking/climbing was way to much! . gotta run to werk

    I'd much rather someone say "he is good but he isn't cheap" than the other way around. "Good and reasonable" would be a happy median.

    Bermy replied to a thread The MS150 Has Arrived in Chainsaws!
    Blocking down a half rotten ash the other day, using the 150 to cut some of it....it stopped oiling. It happened to my other 150 before too. I cleaned it out on the job, power head and bar, but that didn't solve it. Had to use the 200...forgot how heavy that sucker is! Got home, drained the oil tank, half filled it with gas, gave it a shake and poured it out...quite a lot of crud came out, repeat, then filled it with oil again and ran it without the bar. I could see the runny, gassy oil start to bubble through, then run normal, bar and chain back on and all was good. Whew.

    I think I might be getting a rep for being pricey...in some folks eyes. But then there is a builder here, he never gives quotes, charges like a wounded bull and has more work than enough!

    I use the Stihl pole saws about 90% of the time and the Silky 21 ft the other ten. Mainly on limbs I can't reach with the pp. wouldn't leave the house without the pp. As mentioned it works great in storm damage. We were in tornado cleanup once and there was a decent size pine blown into a hickory about 14" dbh. No good way to get the pine down and the hickory had to go anyway. When I was younger I would have cut it and ran. I notched it and bored in. Left about 3 inches of trigger. Used the pp and tripped the hinge and was about 10 ft father out of the way. All went well. I really only use the 8' poles for wire raisers and the Big Shot. Lots of folks here just want the canopy raised to about 12 to 15 ft. Pp works great for that.
