    Don't hesitate to get in touch with Gordon. The bone is an amazing tool! I got the adjustable one from him a few months ago and my rope runner has fallen to the wayside. The ease of attachment/detachment is second to none.

    Lots of favorites for me but lately the t540 and the 562xpw have been what I take to work. The boss has a 661 in the truck that I really like for the big stuff. I've got a ported 550xp, 576xpw, and a 394 to choose from too but that 562 with a 24" bar just gets it done, love it. Got sights set on the tiny echo now...

    I've climbed on the 2 a few times and never could feel all that comfortable on it. That big lever is just asking to get bumped and unexpectedly drop you a little.

    I've been eyeing them. Honestly I haven't had any issues with doubling up x-rings but I do see this being an improvement.

    Haha, I'm not too bad I hope. Just a canopy anchor/friction saver, 2 spare biners, mini 8, and a loop runner.

    Been rocking the monkey beaver for a few weeks now. I posted a more in depth review on treebuzz so I'll sum it up with this: It's a top notch work saddle and is exactly what I wanted in an upgrade from the onyx. Nice work August, Joe, and the fine folks at new tribe.

    Did you end up with a list? Interesting to see how everyone's kit varies. For us 2 porta wraps are almost mandatory, we use the 2nd one all of the time. We also use rescue pulleys a lot of the time instead of blocks but alot of the rigging we do is small and technical. The omni blocks are kickass but it might be hard to talk the boss into it. Rings on deadeyes are cheap and make excellent redirects in the canopy. A basic speedline kit is also really handy to have, and a trolley for a controlled speedline is money well spent for us.

    BOLA is awesome. Best lanyard adjuster ive used by far. What Gordon means is that you clip back into the bola like you would a hitchclimber system. This isolates your body from a spar split but it makes for awkward positioning as you need to tie in to your bridge instead of the d's. You can do this with any lanyard setup by just clipping back into your bridge ring. As the spar splits it expands into the closed loop the lanyard makes that you are not a part of, and are free to unclip and descend on your backup/climbline.

    greengreer replied to a thread milling thread in Chainsaws!
    Good point, I've gotten creative before with getting logs out. This one was in a very busy location, a big house being remodeled with several subcontractors all there at one time. It was an act of congress just to have enough space to take the tree down. The trunk was literally 6" from the portajohn, when I was making the face we had a guy ask if it was a bad time to use the bathroom. Doh!

    Finally got around to milling some of the145yo red maple that I took down a few weeks ago. This was the only log the dingo would get on the trailer. The bottom 20ish ft had to get bucked for firewood, almost made me sick. Really cool grain and the ambrosia in the sapwood turned out pretty nice too.

    That echo looks like a little ripper, and at $200 less than a ms150. Too bad they aren't selling with a 10" bar in the states. For all you 150 guys, is there a decent 1/4p chain out there?

    Black paracord, or equivalent string. Set it with just enough to reach the ground then tie it above head high in another tree or sapling to keep it out of sight. Needs to be tied off to avoid tangles from the wind. Near impossible to see if you don't know its there and can be difficult to find even if you do.

    Handled them at arborfest, they seem like a good design. I like that they are steel and the stirrup is nice and thin. Hard to tell much else without trying them on.

    Friction saver with midline attachable rings (ie quicklinks, etc) works great for going from a base tie to a canopy tie that you need to advance.

    I've seen it done "backwards" if that makes sense. The tail is the bight end and the block or ring side is the two ends mad into a regular eye with a straight bury. Personally I just do them normally and either back splice a few inches (doesn't really matter, as long as it keeps from coming out) or straight bury and some heatshrink. Don't forget to lockstitch either way you go.

    No bearing issues with my 2011 576xp. In fact the only thing that's neededneed replacing was an impulse line. Lots of hours on this saw, still runs great.

    576xp is just a smoother 460 in my opinion. Same power and weight, and the first gen autotune is alot more reliable/liveable. I have run both and like both alot but the av of the husky is top notch, plus the filtration is leagues ahead.

    I'm at about 97% totality. A friend and I are heading down to Joyce Kilmer memorial forest which is smack dab in the middle of the path. It should be an epic experience among some of the largest trees in the east. We'll definitely be getting some photos.

    The pinned boxes on the chiptruck should slow em down enough for the dogs and shotgun. Seriously though I live in a very low crime area and there are way easier targets than me. I wouldn't leave a thief walking with my livelihood in his hands.
