    TM glad you found a good deal on a HH. Seriously! As everyone here knows I love getting cheap old shit that is durable and will put in good service. Pretty much every vehicle I own including my crane is 20 years old and runs great. I really don't get to climb enough anymore but when I do it reminds me why I continue to make HHs. Bullet proof (literally) and pretty danged functional even if I do say so myself

    Not really Reg. The gap at the codoms was terribly tight towards the end. I made the cut towards the middle instead of boring it. No pinch on the saw that way. He would lift and they would float away towards the road. Load never passed over me.

    Nice truck Reg! Won't pull fast, but she'll pull. Here some picts from caning the remainder of the stem. Better Stig? Out camping with the scouts this weekend. Just came down to the beach from Fremont Peak. No Internet up there.

    Damn Pete, that is seriously ugly. I had to use the basket on the crane today after two picks and some binding of the trunk and a branch union. Nasty bugger. Don't know if Mike got and pics. Nail on the head Stig. Hate these dead buggers. Some fodder from yesterday after rigging some logs off so the crane handled the last 4 picks over an electric box and a drop off. Used the crane to load them onto and into trailers and went to the next nasty. Levi in the pics for reference.

    Top it they asked? No says I. Probably already dead from beetle attack and topping not only bad for the tree, but the turpine Released from topping will probably draw the beetles in to finish the job. So today, we start dismantle after someone else topped it. All stripped and chipped today. Upper topping at 100 feet. Tomorrow, negative blocking and gin pole now that the codoms are stropped in two places. Crane on Friday for the larger wood before we go crane out a nasty cracked and dead oak.

    Bid the job by the tree adding them all up. Remember that clean up and wood removal can be 1/3 to 1/2 of the entire bid. http://masterblasterhome.com/showthread.php?19429-45-Trees-3-climbers-3-weeks-of-residential-logging

    You don't want to be the cheap solution. You want to provide a good service that is considered a good value. This goes a long way with the working class and fixed income folks.

    For example, took down 6 smallish to medium sized pine, chipped, bucked logs, material stayed on site.... 1600.00 Lady asked wood to be removed 2 years later, solo truck, trailer, dingo, 800.00 transport to my free dump site for burning. SO add another c note or two labor to burn. Only reason it was not more money, is that she opted to keep some of the smaller logs for a dog training obstacle course. If you get under bid, stop dancing around the customer and walk away. How many others liked your bid on different jobs and did you make enough money... Really pay attention and ask yourself, divide by hours and make sure you are not making store clerk wages. Take 40% off the gross to fix and buy shat before you ask yourself if YOU made enough.

  1. Hi PC
    I guess you missed my post on your HH thread. What is the cost of a Hitch Hiker plus postage to England?
    I'm keen to buy two.

  4. Hey Paul, I had a chat with Bounce (Sean Tait) at WesSpur after you & talked on the phone earlier today. They've finily completed re-working my Mesh Bag for a production version so it should be on thire website by the end of August.

    Sean said he'll be calling you next week regarding the possability of using the Mesh Bag with your Ropetek Wraptor Package.

    I'll be talking with a few of the local tree care companies in my area and if I get enough interest, I'll be sure to take you up on your offer of borrowing one of your Wraptores for a demo day. Who knows, maybe I'll take the plunge & buy one from you. (any discounts on a used demo Wraptor???) Likely be in the fall by the time I get everyone together.

    All the best to you with the launch of you very cool product!


    Bob
  5. perhaps you could call some day 4234004110

    This is something ive put alot of thought and research into its very very simple and its a viable product with no competition.
    It caters to a very large user group as well.
    Its low tech and cheap but it helps with ergonomics i think it will wash
  6. pete hey man , i have something im thinking about developing and id like to ask you some questions.
    My product is extremly simple and has nothing to do with tree work or ropes.
    I just dont know how to began production but im so confidant im willing to drop the $$$
