    Off to a start. The best thing you can do for yourself now (and you are in a way) is always ask your self, was there a better and safer way I could have done this job. Learn from asking that question and do research. Learn. Impliment onto next job. Efficiency and better pay will come as you develop the skills. Second. Just remember, every time you use a ladder or the bed of your truck for cutting; chances are, there will be a professional tree company rep with a phone, with a camera, possibly taking pictures or video to be posted on a FB or Forum such as this. Calling you unprofessional, or hack, or making fun of you at your expense. A good deterrent. Third, Constructive criticism from members of this forum prodded by your posts is a learning opportunity. Search out some of my old posts, you'll get a good laugh. I know some of these fellas did...:lol: Carry on :drink:

    Had an order take almost 3 weeks on an item shown in stock. Guess they ran out. I could have had it from elsewhere in 2 days. WesSpur has always been my go to since it takes a week regularly to get my stuff from Tree Stuff. So, with little to no exception, I am keeping my business elsewhere. Tree Stuff did me right on several things in the past, then not so good in the last couple years. Bummer. :drink:

    Oh good, it comes with the universal mic kit.. I have been eliminating the boom mic from my units. Guys are too rough on them. The other mic picks up more noise though. Chipper is louder as are saws and some machinary. But I don't have to constantly replace them, which trumps the noise.

    The tip I gave my BIL when I visited him in March was burn the dam tree. 2 to 3 series of injections on his tree. All the others around his place were stone dead or removed. Tree leaning toward the house. Buggered spot near the base with exposed heart wood that was not really compartmentalising fast enough leading to a rot forming. Middle of a lawn, so I am sure the added moisture did not help. Ugly wood pecked thing that was only going to die or grow bigger and threaten the house. The Bradford Pear in front of it stayed though.....:|:

    They sure are cheaper in the dual packs. Not sure about the S model. Is that a fixed boom mic? I had a mishap here during a rain storm and all my units but one got submerged. Had to replace 4 of 5. Broke the mic pins on one of the new units. I had a back up mount though. God was I upset. Haven't taken enough hits this year I guess.

    My daughter broke her arm falling off the second step on a small ladder. Just stepped off wrong. And not on the bed of a truck. There are proper ways to use ladders in tree work. Burnham has some great pics of ladders strapped to a single stem. I use orchard ladders when pruning small trees. I have also suffered more ankle injuries from said ladder, just stepping off wrong or a collapsing gopher hole. I have used extension ladders, tied off, for access in trees that have been topped and have no proper tie in. But I can truly say I prefer a good tie in and rope. Safer practice. I would not use a tractor loader bucket either, just some advise. There is a brutal video on you tube about a guy that accesses a tree with a ladder, ties off a limb and cuts from a crotch, only to have the limb swing in, butt first and crush his leg. So many things can bite you in the ass doing trees. Adding things like ladders, truck beds, lack of ppe, can accelerate the curve towards a disaster that can cause you great harm. Hard to put food on the table when you're confined to a bed with broken shat. We only speak to you out of concern as would a parent would to a fledgling. A lot of years experience here has a lot of good things offered to intellectually consider.

    Generally, I find it safer cutting from above the desired branch to be removed, than below. Just sayin :drink:
