    I had random issues with my thomas. one time i used a 6" drainage pipe hooked over my exhaust on the truck and blew hot hair at the engine. Worked a charm. Your truck looks like its parked on the correct side already :thumbup:

    No kidding. Biggest flaw in the design that I noticed. But I guess it keeps the cost down that way. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    There aren't so many squirrels here. Actually we don't see them often. I never found a rope shewed, and lastly I had to leave one in place for 2 months, with no problem, just at the edge of a wood. I'm more concerned by the thefts and I use a throw line if the tree is in an open/public space, not on a private property. For the rigging gear, what is aloft stays a loft, I coil the rope out of reach, but I remove what is at ground level, like slings, redirecting block, porty...

    The engine in my first car was a flat tween with a central carb. The steel air intake were too long and the gas condensed in the cold weather. First I used to put an electric air heater (from the bathroom) under the car to warm up all the engine. It worked but that wasn't really practical. After, I wrapped an heating cord around the both pipes of the intake. In the morning, I just plugged an extension cord to it and some minutes after, it can start. The record was -27*C this winter. I was lucky to park my car just beside my small apartment, so the electricity was handy. If not, I'd vote for a small propane blower (one which doesn't need electricity to work!) and a tarp over the engine compartment, so it warm up the engine and the hydraulics. Don't heat too hard, because the gas tank is in there too.

    “In 1965, while stationed with the US Army in South Korea by the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), Mr Jenkins decided to abandon his unit and defect to the North, fearing he would be killed in patrols or sent to fight in the Vietnam War.” Sad?

    Yes it is, the knees come often enough in a "sensitive" area for adequate positioning. Not with the spurs of course, but on ropes. I can't open the deflector on my ms150 because it's spot welded on the muffler. Instead, I cut a slit on the muffler's bottom angle. Don't judge the ms150 too quick, she's really shy when new. Feed her with some gas, and you will find that after about 10 tanks, she begins to trust more in you and desires to do good job for you:D Yes for the one handed, too easy. But careful, her teeth could be small, they can bite pretty well. Like a kitten. I tested both :cry:

    It would be nice if there was an electric clutch between the engine and pump/pumps.

    Same here! Yesterday I was coming back to the shop and this guy was flashing me and then left his brights on so I turned my brights on and flipped him off as we passed.

    I have a small (40,000 btu) forced air propane heater for the really cold start days when I can't plug stuff in at night. Fuel additives might help.

    (Recreational Climber) When I was learning to throw it was a time consuming process to get a good tie in point. I bought cheap hollow braid from big box store and left lines all over. My neighbors were intrigued. In addition to animal damage of my climbing lines I was concerned about theft and also providing a temptation to kids to get hurt. Then I realized I was saving time but losing opportunities to practice throwing. Now I would only leave a dedicated non life support line if I really needed to come back to a place and time was of the essence. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
