    $18/gallon if you buy 5 gallons. If you only go through a couple gallons a year maybe. We aren't used to paying high fuel prices.

    Been back in Sydney for a couple of weeks, think this will be my last work here. They put the tip prices up since Christmas, nearly double. Minimum charge $55 for 200kg or 440lbs, even the cheaper one I found last year has gone from $8 to $20 a cubic meter. Can't survive here these days without a chipper. So I'm taking todays load home with me and I'll chip it there, what I save on tip fees will pay for my fuel home.

    No, I realise 23 isn’t hot, but it is only going one way, suddenly you remember what a few weeks of 30 plus is like. So what model do you have Brett?

    You think 23 is hot? If my math is correct, that's 73.4F, right? I'd give my left nut to work in 73 degrees all day. It's been in the low 90's here lately. CoolVest is the way to go. I haven't used mine yet; waiting till it gets warmer.

    That, and drinking those electrolyte fluids to prevent muscle cramping and other symptoms of dehydration. This will be a good thread, Mick! Thanks for starting it. Tim

    All pump gas here is with ethanol. Up to 14% E10 is standard... Ethanol is not really the problem in my opinion. You can run saws on E85 with some mods and a good esteric oil that mix with it. Big problem is all the other crap they got in it...

    Pump gas is here 17.90Skr per liter. 4,5l per gallon = 80,55Skr per gallon. 80Skr is about 8,29USD. So we pay 8.29/gallon here for pump gas... Alkulate is about 30Skr = 13.98USD per gallon.

    So it’s hotting up now, are you guys still using cool vests? My current groundy, whilst very good seems to malfunction when it gets too hot. It was 23 degrees yesterday and it brought to the front of our minds the torture ahead. What would be the best for us do you think?

    Good stuff. A second climbing system for work positioning is uber useful...I do that, too.

    They are really cool for setting lines sometimes, i got one too. I also have an epple hook, which is also super handy and fun. I don't climb much lately (for quite awhile), and i never have climbed like everyone here, but the ability to toss a weight rated hook somewhere and traverse is wasaaaaayyyyyyyy easier on spreading trees. It's also handy as hell for a quick way to set up an extra line for temporary balancing (for making cuts or working at the tips), and is even handy for hand saw work at the tips to control brush so you can toss it (over a roof or something). It's pretty easy to retrieve, and although should never be counted on for life support, for work positioning it's perfect. I use a really long double lanyard, with 2 hitches, stored in a small bag on my back left side. I use mainly one side of the lanyard as my main lanyard, but if needed i reach in and pull out a whole nother climbing setup. I started this doing spreading trees, so i could protect from a pendulum fall (2 lanyards to pass branches), had another small climbing system there for double crotching, for traversing back to the main tip leader (long lanyard tail), and for the grapple work. This video clearly isn't me, but shows what you can do with it, by a climber waaaaaayyyyy better than i am even in dreams. As a simple piece of kit that can be used with your tail rope too, for me it was a quantum leap in safety, comfort, and speed, because everything in Illinois is a spreading hardwood. https://youtu.be/Ias9ZRNtSjQ There used to be some other vids too, but i can't find them atm...

    I would have thought you had a whole machine shop and would just whip up the parts real quick!! I would also imagine Babbitt working just fine too tho... and yes ebay is awesome. I've also had luck on certain tractor sites finding stuff for my backhoe, but then again my backhoe is younger and likely more common than your dozer.
