    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.

    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.

    That's a great find Grendel! Perfect machine for a one ton chip truck. Anyone on here used a vermeer 935? I found one with the larger diesel (perkins I believe) in good shape. Just can't find out much about them.

    Ill bet mike powers would fix it for you, worth a shot. If not, any fab shop should have the correct rivet gun and rivet and be able to set you up for a few bucks

    I just use oregon lgx/jgx on everything but my tophandle. Stihl chain is way more expensive, and honestly how long does it take to touch up a chain. I can do one in as much time as it takes to change one. A rock or nail is gonna be an issue no matter the brand.

    greengreer replied to a thread SRT & Cranes in Climbing Forum
    You could use trt but I don't see how it could be any faster than ddrt with a multiscender. I usually just tie back into the ball on a spar to limit the chance of the rope getting stuck. Sometimes you can set a srt point at your next sling point and run back up there while thw crane/ground deals with the last pick.
