    I do one macrocarpa hedge in the village, belongs to my neighbour, I eyeball it...the top is level, but the front face usually ends up following the undulations of the old plank fence in front...rustic.

    No wobblies on my truck, must still be within load range. In Bermuda we have a phrase 'Portagee Load'...most of the landscapers are of Portuguese heritage, and mate...they can LOAD a truck!! I learned from the best of them, get in the back with a sharp machete and chop and stomp on everything as it comes up, pile to the boards, then shove branches down the sides as stakes and keep going. Trim it all around the edges when you're done for no overhang, bung a tarp over the top and off to the dump...

    Ooookaayy...I have my Isuzu D Max, with additional height side boards...8'6" x 6' x 2', full to the top that's about three yards, give or take, with some logs thrown in and all our tools, plus towing my chipper that is just over a ton, the D Max handles it all just fine. (we do have beefed up aftermarket rear suspension...SAX Suspension) Driving 75kms home fully loaded, at 90-100kms an hr, no problem.

    Yep, I've had to become measurement bilingual...but centimeters have disappeared, everying is mills or metres over here! I had a boss once who was American PhD MIT mechanical engineer with a vast grasp of trivia, apparently the US was supposed to start the change to metric in the 1700's, they decided to form a committee to investigate the switch...still investigating I suppose!

    Unfortunately the grains of the 21st century are not our grandparents grains, talking about wheat. It is now so modified for uniformity and high yield it has way more stuff in it than it ever had, I've cut out most wheat from my diet, lost a kilo without trying, hubby lost three. Everything works better, including that peristalsis... Also the knock on and probably a good contributing factor is that we don't eat as much cake and cookies, so added sugar had gone down too. I've discovered pulse pasta, pretty good...corn and rice cakes, not bad, found a good source of gluten free bread. But hey, a $3.50 bag of hot chips with salt from the take out is still yummy!

    Hey, yes here I am... That's it exactly! I tried to post a picture I had put up before of my dual bridge setup, but I can't drag and drop when using my tablet for some reason. I had some long limbwalks this week and my Ddrt (now called MRS apparently) lanyard makes for easy return from the tippy tips.

    Bermy replied to a thread Best Lift???? in Gear Forum
    I also thought that was a lot to ask for 12 metres on a pickup...won't be rushing out to buy one. The local rental just got those 18m trucks in, the one I used a few weeks ago, obviously old hydro trucks, they were due for their 10 year surveys so the rental company bought them and did the necessary and put them back in service as rentals. I saw one in their workshop, it was in pieces! Just when I think I could use a lift of my own I get a run of jobs with no access.

    I'm on the HH, Tachyon 11.5 with beeline. Works fine for me, four wraps one braid. One of the big secrets in getting your hitch to work properly with the HH is to tie it very snug right from the get go, pull all the slack out through the hole in the dog bone, just about bends my rope a bit sideways, then tie the stopper. By the time you bounce on it and put some weight on, it will find the slack that's left and pull out a bit and straighten. You won't get 'sit back' or 'creepy hitch', which can happen if you don't tie the hitch snugly.

    But if you already have a perfectly good helmet, it's not hard to do it yourself. They are selling the DIY sets on treestuff.

    Mick, thats pretty much what I did, I'm not particularly techie but practical...so putting them into our existing helmets and earmuffs was not difficult. Two Petzl vertex vents and standard earmuffs. Watch the treestuff video on pairing (and Gary's) and you'll be in business in no time, honestly it took me maybe an hour...and I was watching TV at the same time (Bondi Rescue ��⚓����)

    Hey Gary, good video. Yours are slightly different than mine, I've got the ones with the round volume dial...are yours a later model? Pairing process is the same though.

    Oh boy oh boy! I finally pulled the trigger and got two do it yourself units from the treestuff sale. I love them! I would have to say that if you work with a partner, significant other, husband, wife...GET some! It will save your relationship. Two days in a row now, big scarlet oak, foot path on one side, road on the other, chipper in the middle, me 50' up...our communication was SO much better. No more yelling instructions, no more frustration when the chipper is running and I need to get his attention, bit of banter, bit of gossip about dopey pedestrians and drivers...stress levels WAY down. It took me about an hour to fit out both our helmets, then watch the video on how to operate and pair them, really worth the money, especially since they come with a set of earmuffs that in OZ would probably cost $60 a pair alone! Only gribble is I wish they came with an operation manual, but at least YouTube came to the rescue. If you are on the fence, thinking about it as I was...get some!

    Indeed, when sectional felling a stem, I still do the 540 wrap D to D, and flipping up a coconut, with core lanyard on Ds... but most of my work nowadays is fine pruning and reductions...putting my lanyard centrally on a second bridge is the bee's knees for what I do :)

    Marc sounds like you and I climb in a very similar manner. Back to Robert, although you can choke your lanyard it's not something you should be doing with any regularity, better to use it as intended either off your side Ds or from your central point, bridge or fixed.
