    If a customer asks me how much just to drop and walk away I always consider the risks involved when pricing. I might be 99% sure I am going to lay it down exactly where I want it. There is that 1% chance of a mistake! Ok maybe I am more like 80% sure it will land where I desire! Lol Personally I love when a customer wants me to just cut and leave. It might take me and one groundie an hour to drop a tree and walk away with $500! Also if you quoted appropriately on the clean up they are likely to go with that once they see the mess.

    Saturday we had a huge crane job where we had to set up in a school parking lot. We were just getting started and Brutus our big chipper broke down. It was so nice to just send a guy home to get our other chipper and still get the job done. All my equipment is used and old so I try to have a backup for everything. FWIW in my observation my old stuff breaks down less than a lot of my friends new stuff. Brutus had a bad electric fuel pump.

    If you are really stuck in a duelly you can always get out by sacrificing a rope. Tie rope to the center of the bud wheels and tie off on solid object. As wheel spins it will wrap around the center of bud wheels and pull you out. Horrible mess getting it out though:lol:

    PCTREE replied to a thread Motorcycling. in The Rec Room
    Do a track day and just watch who is faster than you. Next session follow them out and follow their lines, don't go WAY beyond your limits following them as you can crash when the sudden realization that shit they have race slicks on. You know what I mean find the right rider and follow him. if you really feel faster following him you might want to introduce yourself to him and figure out if he is cool with you following him, if not punch ups can occur I liked the Duke because its not a race bike. I personally never want to race again, so expensive to win. Track days are a blast though if you can find a good crowd

    I like that set up Gary. Especially the bar holding ropes and harnesses. Once you put in some shelving that should be a pretty sweet set up. Thanks for the post 👍 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the information Brian. I hope people don't think I am one to take advantage of people! There are times when I do well in business I start to feel bad lol. The market here really sucks thanks to a few hacks and recently two large Tree Service's that are trying to pay off all their new equipment. They are bidding jobs so low it would be foolish to try and compete. I have learned that the hard way this year. Their focus is on strictly volume and not quality. Like you said the big money jobs are already done. I think the whole experience would be good in general though. If I can help people get their homes back in order and make good money doing it then it's good for everybody. Also I don't want to be the cheapest or the most expensive. I want to lay my head down at night knowing I helped someone by providing excellent service. At the same time I make money. People need someone they can trust during these stressful times so if anything it's a win / win for both parties. Don't know if I will make it in time though. The soonest would be by the weekend. Thanks for all the input! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Bump: I was thinking about renting a U-Haul, loading it up and heading out that way. I have a Toyota Tacoma and no room to lock up all my saws, ropes, rigging, climbing gear, etc.., Not to mention all the other supplies needed for however long I plan to stay. If my ex can keep the kids I would like to go for 3-4 weeks maybe come home for a week or two then go back for another 3-4 weeks. I might just rent a big U-Haul trailer first trip then come back and buy a bigger 3/4 ton crew cab truck with a locking bed cover. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

Biography:
I learned how to climb working for a very successful tree service in New Orleans in 1996. After working for that company for a year I decided to start my own. Didn't work out then so I became a professional firefighter which had great benefits but wasn't happy. Finally after years of dragging through my days I was forced to make a choice. I decided to begin working for myself which led me to climbing again. Started new business in 2011. I am no longer a "hack" ;) I am a State Licensed Arborist who is learning to be a great Arborist!
