    I'm heavily invested in Milwaukee tools, so I'm waiting for their chainsaw. I'm just going to end trim big timbers with it. Better than running the 395 in the garage. I think we are going to see a lot of improvement in battery tools in the next five years. I'm interested to know how it works for you.

    Can anyone here speak of parental responsibility? Honestly, it aeems like a deliberate effort to ignore the cause, instead, focusing on the effect

    Worked with a bit of snow. Did some orchard pruning, and maple reduction of a rotten thing leaning toward the house. 4-500 pounds less, way out there, should help. Wondered how hard life before throwlines was. Scared some landscaping, none harmed. Bought a Husqvarna battery-powered rear-handle saw. About like a MS211, probably less than an MS250. $300 with one battery and charger. Nice!

    Can't believe Brian forgot Mike Maas' last name! The two of them liked to tag team on me at AS.

    Another lovely day here in Ohio. Worked in the rain most of the day again. Finally quit raining and the truck decided to quit running. We were able to finally get it restarted and back to the shop around five. I?m taking the ?spare? out tomorrow while the mechanic can hopefully get the bad sensor replaced.

    That had to have been a sight Brian. Love stuff like that when working around nature. Snow day today. My client cancelled and I had another lined up for my guys, also cancelled. Temps dropped last night below 20*. So it snowed on tepid ground getting it wet, then covered it with snow and a sheet of ice formed under crusty snow. Accidents everywhere, sheriffs asking folks to stay home, school cancelled. Was able to leave our driveway about 10ish and go pick up baby goats at a lower elevation. Accident on one of the grades (roll over and trapped) caused us to take a long detour but I made a good decision. Road was only icy in the shady spots while the highway we were on was an ice sheet. More accidents that way happened while we drove the sunny side of the mountain on clear roads. Came back to better roads after 1 pm. And safe and sound baby goats.

    Whatcha gonna do with the slab Pete? Spent the day changing bottom roller bearings on Shancho. 7 out of ten were loose 3 of which were roached which prompted the repair. So ordered enough to do all ten but the remaining three were still good. My shop press and I are old friends now.

    Agreed, so risk mitigation. Train and prepare. Much easier to mitigate risk by just being trained and prepared. Enables you to recognise the risk and avoid it or mitigate. You are trained, your training probably gives you insight to trouble. Again, the risk is small. My kids are more at risk to a kidnapping than a shooting. SO we prepare and educate more to that. But my kids are also being trained in gun handling. In my eyes, there biggest risk with a firearm is an accidental shooting when at a friends etc.. If they know gun handling and safety, they have a better chance avoiding the risk or stopping the event. I wish I could afford martial arts as well. And they will never starve.

    I would think no because then you would have one strands turn un captured. If I am envisioning it right.

    Had a productive week. Three easy jobs today, still done and home by 3. Yesterday's big removal paid cash, including $1200 in $10 bills. It will take me weeks to get rid of them all! And if that's the worst thing I have to deal with this week than I consider myself very lucky. Had a saw with a bad spark plug I fixed today. Made me think of the guy from Arboristsite many years ago who always said that he had never seen a spark plug go bad. Mike something, can't remember. Anyway, the electrode in this plug was broken and you could change the gap by turning the plug upside down and back again. Threw a new plug in and it runs perfect. Had a big fat red shouldered hawk sitting in the top of a tree I cut down today. Tree was 80' tall and from my setup I could only reach to about 50' up. So I had to throw a good size top and that bird stayed right there until the top came over, then she flew away.

    Stigs post was to the point. It's a big shit sandwich....but I don't think getting rid of legal guns is the answer. I have not changed my position Not my concern that everyone is a hoplophobe. You can continue to agitate on this matter....but someone else will have to take up the debate.

    No idea, wtf is Mashal law? Tree workers are more likely to die on the drive to work than in a work related incident, so no point worrying about safety at work then eh?

    Read somewhere your child is at much greater risk of dying from a fall in the house than a school shooting.

    Fine video...I like how you dropped out of warp speed to see the cool things (big trucks, big equipment...). And you have a wonderful little princess there. The family touch...priceless. Let's see what the Saw King and Echo can do.

    Rather than turn your life into a fortress, why not simply look at statistics instead and realize that the chance of being a victim of terrorism or for that matter a sholl shooting, is extremely small. Most if not all of us here face higher danger just doing our job.
