    YVW, enjoy. Best devise I have found that makes the transition of teaching some one that knows old school Ddrt and DRT and bring them more into the dark side.

    I think you are talking about the big nut on the side of the oil pan Brian? Where the dipstick tube goes in? Bad design, the more you tighten, the worse it will leak. The o ring seal is on the inside of the pan. The nut pulls the flange against it and the pan. There is a cheat so you don't have to pull the motor. But if you take that nut off, you have to capture the part to keep it from falling in the pan. Engine removal to retrieve after that. Some say a brass brush for gun cleaning in a calibre (don't remember which one) that will be a tight fit with a string attached does the trick so you can remove the seal, replace it and then the nut. I imagine same could be negotiated with a needle nose type vise grip holding it. You Tube is your friend with a lot on a 7.3

    Wow, Thanks B. I am flattered. I really just write it off to paying attention..... Just got back from a Boy Scout outing. Had horrible connectivity up at Fremont Peak. Towers every where, but hardly a steady signal. Only when we went to the beach or in town could I up load or text..... Kids had a great time. They have an observatory up there, many amateur types and our scout leader brought his 8". Awesome times. Levi wants to be an astrophysicist some day. He was in heaven, so to speak.

    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.

  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.
    Thanks.

  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

    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 $$$
