    SeanKroll replied to a thread Corkd? in Announcements!!!
    Try to get a free trial. How large and visible is your truck signage? I think this is a great investment. Do you have a website? I've been connected by an internet marketing company to people I already know. Coincidence??? Data mining is a wire facet of our modern e-world.

    Just figure it manually, and bid it, tracking hours. See what your manual-hourly prediction turns into for loader-assisted hours. Divide it out. See how that seems to convert. Something working in your favor is a regular, invested, same-skills (not in-training) work force.

    Huh? The cheapest is not the best value. Who is, percentage wise, most likely to have a problem, the cheapest (rushing, poor safety, increase likelihood of collateral damage), the middle guy, or the most expensive? Who is most likely to have shady workers, possibly casing the house, the guy playing $10/ hour cash to Itchy and Scratchy the Tweeker brothers as under-the-table "employees" or the guy paying $20/ hour for professional quality employees? One of my customers took a break from pro prices... The guy left in an ambulance, live or dead, don't know. Hard drugs in the driveway before leaving, after screwing the removal up. Not licensed and insured, but that's just a purchase, like a bucket truck... anyone can buy one that has the money.

    Always something to clean and maintain, repair, sharpen, grease, paint, or practice.

    Possible. I didn't look that closely, evidently.

    A $500 tree is worth $500 whether you bring one hatchet or an army of guys and gear and a 300 ton crane.

    If you and your wife and kids are working it out, there you have it. Pics of timber mats in action? Did you see Paul's PCTree's roll up, roped together cribbing? We have some wet conditions to contend with. I'm always trying to fill my bag of tricks.

    I think it's just flaking paint.

    This will require a large enough drop zone that you need little "Branch English" (to morph a pool/ billiards term).

    I think its just cracked paint you're seeing, if we're looking at the same spot. Its bulged at all 4 sides. I wonder if their is a drain-hole in newer AT?

    I don't like the idea of it grabbing and cutting, and refilling and ...KISS Aluminum with rubber-finger molded grip!! I think the crosswise grip versus handsaw grip. The basic idea of a rope that would easily replace, like a chainsaw starter rope (knot jams against hole), with a pistol grip style of release, if possible, would be great. One side of the rope would be fixed/ attached, leaving a (15-20", without doing the math on a 5" branch??) length to be grabbed by the clamp (like the vice-grip grabbing mid-line). Maybe the rope should have overhand knots every 2" that would help to lock the cord behind the clamp.

    Chris, how long have you been in business? Can you play the "since 2006"? Do you have a family history with trees/ logging? The site looks good. Cranes are sexy. They also are hard for some people to understand are an expensive tool of the trade, at times. They might be intimidated by what you must charge if you do "big projects". How much pruning? Building clearance, vista pruning, Cable and bracing, etc. versus removal? People don't understand "crown reduction" intuitively. Build more of that into the site. Cable and Brace pictures. I might have missed them in the scrolling pictures. Maybe the first picture in the gallery should be Crew or Chris and Family. The second and third, IIRC, looked like some involving the rock slope stabilization projects???? A good spot for a pruning picture. Can you put in before/ after pics? If you're limited on photo space/ video space on your site, can you embed links to Flickr, youtube, etc?
