    Haha, I'm a husky guy at heart. That said the boss bought the new 661cm and I think I have a creamsicle crush

    Thanks, I'm new to milling so definitely on a steep learning curve. The 394 is really stout, I'm impressed. I've got about six hundy in it including the bar and chains. Added a second port to the muffler to help it get the heat out as well.

    That was crataegus, super hard stuff. Tried both regular full comp chain and my homebrew milling chain and got the same results. The pine turned out really smooth with regular old round chisel.

    I don't think you want to disable the buzzer, the electric motor will quickly burn out. Basically it works to have power assist with key on, engine off. Then when you crank the truck the belt driven pump takes over. The lucas girling brakes are hugely overcomplicated and are just a general pain in the ass

    Srt- bigshot to where you're gonna blow the top (if removal) base tie, run up to the tie in amd reset with a choke on the trunk. Ddrt you can pull up a pulley on another line and base tie to ascend easily.

    Another vote for tritech as an all around lanyard. I would think kmiii to be similar. Nothing flips like a steel core but I have found I can get by without one anymore

    greengreer replied to a thread tuning a stihl 461 in Chainsaws!
    Short answer check out youtube. Lots of good tuning videos. Ideally you should be tuning with a good log to listen to how the saw runs in the cut. When you lift the saw out of the wood you want to hear it four stroke. I imagine a 461 has a limited coil so learn what four stroking sounds like vs the rev limiter. The L screw adjustment mostly control how the saw accelerates and somewhat how it holds rpm in the cut. All that being said, there's a reason I run autotune saws...

    greengreer replied to a thread Knee Ascender in Gear Forum
    Saka for me. I like being able to use the footloop or use it with the attachmentnon my spurs. Stores nicely on my saddle too and lets me literally run up the rope. Much better than my homemade attempt. Gone are the days of being tired when you reach your tie in... tree climbers have never had it so good.

    150' is a good all around in the trees we generally climb. Every once in a while we get into a really tall stand where we are running out of rope. I primarily climb srt, and keep a hank of 120ish ft rope for the back end on a base tie or the retrieval end on a canopy anchor. A few times I want for a 200 footer but its just not often enough to buy one t this point.

    Most, if not all of your quality manufacturers proof test hardware before it leaves the factory.

    Someone sells a kit with a guide to get the shape right, bashlin or buckingham maybe. I just use a raker file and try to keep with the shape that is there (climbrights). Only takes a couple strokes to make it happen.

    Cool video and nice machine. I like the idea of using those big bags masonry sand comes in for rakings. Something I have noticed, are dedicated chip trucks not common in the uk? Seems like alot of videos I've seen you guys have a really small chipper and just blow them into a tray style dump bed.

    Hitchhiker is perfect for spar work, I went to the roperunner now and I miss the hh2 on the spar. The runner just feels like it could get side loaded or something, probably just me worrying too much but the hitchhiker is bombproof and instilled confidence. Before I went srt I used a rock exotica mini 8 and locked it off. Another cheap and easy way is to tie a hitch that I have no idead the name of with a good heat resistant cordage, it allows you to run a single rope without any additional friction. There's a thread on tree buzz about it. I did one climb on it just to experiment and it works pretty well. I use a steel oval autolock for that purpose. Either use the spliced eye if I am just spiking down a few feet at a time or a butterfly knot with enough tail to retrieve so I can descend on rope when taking bigger pieces or coming down to fell the stick.

    Ditch the boat snap for a trigger snap, they are cheaply available at any hardware store and work perfectly.

    Spellerfeller, there's alot of good guys and professional arbs down your way, I am sure you can find someone to tag along with. If not I am near Boone, only like an hour and a half from you. I would be willing to sacrifice my time if it would help you stay out of that tree, that looks like a death trap.

    The best way to bid a job for a buddy is to not bid at all. Tell him you'll do it hourly and come up with a rate that is fair to both of you. If he must have an idea of the cost before hand then use your hourly number and try to figure on how long it will take you to get it done, then add a healthy margin of error. Your figure is now a ballpark estimate and tell him it will cost no more than that number but that if everything goes really well you will probably be able to come in less. People in general are much happier when you come in $50 under your bid, just don't ever ask for a penny more. One huge wildcard into figuring out a number is the homeowner. You said he is going to help with the labor but do you know about how well he will work? Sometimes that can be more of a hindrance than a help.

    Delta link if I am setting it from the ground or going to be working the tree on it. They are bombproof and can be loaded from any direction. Steel autolocker for spar work when I am clipping and unclipping alot. Keep it simple, having a retrieval line seems overly compicated to me.

    You're right, I thought they still made a regular cab. I guess it's hard to justify building a model they dont sell very many of these days.
