    I am curious as well about fingers getting pinched. I really would like one but don't always wear gloves in the summer.

    Excellent idea on that list Bermy! I usually do a walk around of the whole job site, truck, and trailer. Also make sure everything is tied down and secure before I pull off. If I pull forward or back up truck and trailer I almost always do a 360 walk around to be sure no gear gets run over. Recently saved my 201t, BG 86 blower, and Ms 170. All was left there by a young groundie leaving for the Army! In Basic I am sure he is going to have fun :lol:

    Fencing nails, screws, and the required tools. Blue tarp for storm work which can also make for nice shade when it's 100+ degrees. Make a lean to by attaching it to the truck, trailer, pruner poles. Also provide cover for your gear when a spotty storm hits.

    That picture didn't do any justice. It was actually leaning much more with the dog legs. They had a Golden Rain tree they wanted to save. I managed to prune a nice size branch off! No charge :D Oh yeah Jerry PITA it was for sure especially since it was 95 degrees and like 90% humidity :X

    I am really liking the looks of this. I have been trying to come with a design like this for the past several years. This tool will save time if you use an adjustable friction saver, conserve energy with the option to sit back, save you from taking a ride on a gaff out, and be able to get down immediately for lunch!

    Man glad to hear I am not the only one. I had an old 100 + pine 20" in diameter at 60' with part of the top dead that leaned right over another tree they wanted to keep. I made angled cuts with a wedge to the side for some of lower ones. Dbh was about 32"-36".Here is a picture near the top

    Keep your chain sharp and clean the bar grooves and inside the face plate. Make sure oil is getting to the bar! I wouldn't go any bigger than a 18" bar with a 250/251 which I believe is the maximum length you can put on it. I wouldn't bury the the blade as it will likely stall. It can cut wood bigger than the bar length but that saw doesn't have an adjustable oiler. So if you are going to be making lots of cuts, one after another especially you will overheat the bar. A MS 290/291 is a good step up with an adjustable oiler that will pull a 20" bar. Good luck and be safe!

    ClimbMIT replied to a thread Monkey Beaver Saddle in Gear Forum
    Does Treestuff or New Tribe have one to try before you buy? I really like this saddle but I wanna give it a run first. I tempted to wait for a sale but I do see Treestuff has the coupon thing going on now. If I purchased this saddle and another climbing rope I could get the 7% off plus $100 gift card. So I may just do this if the next couple weeks goes as planned. Loss some money this week due to this funk going around with flu like symptoms. My son got it, I had it, and my daughter is hopefully getting over it now. I am ready to pull the trigger on this it's just always something I need/want ��

    ClimbMIT replied to a thread Monkey Beaver Saddle in Gear Forum
    Hello Treehousers, I will be in the market very soon for a new saddle. I really am liking the looks of the Monkey Beaver. The only thing is the sizing could be a concern for me. Normally wear a size 32, 33 in jeans but in the summer I have gotten down to about a 30. This is my ideal waist/weight for me but can not always stay this size in winter. Just wondering about a recommendation on size? I see the MB small is 26" - 32" waist then medium is 33" - 35". Anybody have any experience with this? Thanks! Mark

    If I knick my climb line or damage it that is deemed unsafe to climb then I just cut the bad section off. Then buy another rope if needed. I usually buy at least one new climb line a year. So I now have several set ups ready to go for different situations. Much more efficient than dealing with all the extra rope. Always good to have a back up if your doing it for a living as well.

    Hey Randy, I hope all is well with you. I'm looking to buy a new 201t and have it modded. Do you buy new saws, mod them and resell or just work on saws sent to you? What mods would you recommend for that saw and what do you charge? Thanks, Ray
