    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.

    Nice, some good ideas there... cutting out a spot for the attachment plate is pretty slick.

    We got a longer but not near as large in diameter (18" vs 30") on the trailer one end at a time. The squeezer grapple doesn't lift very high but I wouldn't be able to grab the bigger piece with the root grapple. I'll have to try the chain trick, I also think a set of forks might be nice.

    Notch it and watch it! (Actually a tag line would let you keep a thicker hinge, as was said before.)

    I wanted to mill on site but alas we are tree guys not loggers and we needed to be finished up with the job. I tried every trick in the dingo playbook to get that log on there... told the new guy he might see me cry when I had to cut it

    A little black walnut, had a nice 8' log but couldn't get it on the trailer. Unfortunately had to cut it down so the dingo would lift it.
