    Aww Burnham, never say never...:) I got tired of using my 200' rope on all my climbs when a lot of them didn't use up much rope, it's nice to have some shorties handy.

    I have a cut up older climb line, three pieces 50', 65' and 80'...the 65'er gets used SRT fairly often...but then the other day I had to use the 50'er to extend my 120' to work a big tree...so :P

    For real! Great farming videos Jim, gives us small country people half an idea what it's all about. Brian, you know why you got given that hedge trimmer right? Something to do with a nice new helmet I'm wearing maybe...:)

    Beautiful pictures! We did a bike ride downhill in Alaska in the early 2000's...indeed the no pedalling is nice.

    They seem to be gaining popularity...I might get one for the 150t and that teensy chain which can be a bit tricky to get just right

    Go for it Sam...it sounds like you could put those grippers to use immediately, and I don't have the readies to secure them right now, and postage to Bermuda would add a significant amount. I need a new helmet more urgently than a Tree Bike!

    Bermy replied to a thread Carbon fiber pole saw in Gear Forum
    How about that time when the branch falls on the pole and the whole lot comes down 'kerrwallop'! Will carbon fibre stand up to that scenario? I bent a section of my Hayauchi...at least you can get spare parts for everything on a Silky...will follow this with interest nonetheless :)

    OHHHH...a Tree Bike!!!! I could use that in Bermuda for all the coconuts I do. How long typically did it take you to set it up for each tree? I only tried a Tree Bike once, about 12 years ago on a field day, didn't go up too high. Bit short on readies a the moment so if someone really wants them NOW, I will concede.

    Two jobs this week,one BIG eucalyptus...will post some pics later in the other thread...no adverse effects one the repaired shoulder which makes me very happy. We went up to the Inland Fisheries open day in the highlands, they've been stripping trout and raising fingerlings there for 90 years to stock the lakes, good show all around, cool to see how it all works, ate BBQ eel, salmon pie and bought some possum fur mittens, supposed to be really warm, apparently possum fur is hollow.

    The best saw is the saw that does the job you need it to do. Yesterday my best saw was the 150t...nothing else got a look in, 200t too heavy, 260 too big...but tomorrow, might need the 461.

    My hubby's mum had a stroke, right side paralyzed.. we took care of her in house for a month before the family could arrange for her to get back to Canada where she was from into a good home in her hometown. I have MUCH respect for those aged care workers who have a vocation for their job, to remain caring and considerate in very trying circumstances. When I go to physio for my shoulder, they all are amazed at how far along I came so quickly, being fit (and motivated) is crucial, at 6 weeks they were telling me they had people at 12 weeks who were not even doing what I was, so stay FIT young'uns...am I allowed to say than now I've passed 50? Also all the dire predictions of awful pain did not eventuate, sure it was sore but not what they had set me up to believe it would be!
