    Today went well enough. More street trees. Lots of wires. Lowered down a nest of baby squirrels and left the hollow piece by the stump in hopes that mama comes back to relocate them. Oh and the 1250 Vermeer was sold yesterday. Looks like I’m buying more gear tomorrow

    Wasn’t my cup of tea but it worked. Looked like he thought it should’ve went a few times. I cut and walk away on a pull tree. I don’t pussyfoot around cutting more from one side or the other If I carried, I wouldn’t be all day long. No reason. Then again I don’t have reason to.

    Did my good deed for the day. Left a rotten POS maple stand for a while longer Found it was inhabited by a pair of screech owls. Made a phone call and was told to leave it be. Later recieved an email from the utility saying thank you for being diligent enough to report them instead of just doing the job. Cool little critters they are. The head turning thing still freaks me out a bit though. My wife loves owls so letting her know I saved a pair today should turn into a good night;)

    Another ( and last) day of wiping someone else’s ass on this part of our ROW contract. Had to grab a picture of this to show and ask the boss why we bought all those fancy stump grinding shields that sit in the truck. Dropped 9 more trees that were requiring a climber and stripped one more hollow white oak today. Not a hard day. Just frustrating because this “Rich can do it” stuff is getting old. We have enough to do with out cleaning up after the rest of the company. Rant over. Off to do another project tomorrow. Street trees on a busy road. Yippee. Now the rant is over

    Lower end means crank and bearings as far as I know Deva. Cracked fuel tank adds a lot because it’s the main body of the saw. If you have another parts saw laying around it might be worth it though. I agree Randy, the 200’s are becoming a thing of the past. I’m about done putting money into mine. Of course they’ve all had top ends at least once. One had the lower end done because the dealer forgot the key on the flywheel and spun it on the crank causing enough wear to not seat properly. I didn’t think the flywheel was hard enough to wear the crank but it did. They ate that one.

    Nice rotted out whit oak this morning. Wish I had a few pics of the tree but been to busy working to get many pics. Put a dozen spars on the ground later. Some needed a pull line and some were wedged over, while three were no brainers. Another crew started this section of ROW and decided it was to much to finish. I know that they lost one spar and damaged a shed. Of course the stump was already ground out and no one took pics but the consensus was he cut through his hinge. He’s been known to cut them off or make them to thin. Looks like we will be having another training day soon

    treebilly replied to a thread Chipper question... in Chainsaws!
    Fiona hydraulics get hot. A lot of chippers don’t run a hydraulic cooler. One reason the tank holds so much fluid is to allow some cooling time. It wouldn’t be to terribly hard to install a cooler. It’s just a small radiator with an electric fan on most. Some have them running next to the engine radiator so the engine fan cools it. Edit. A lot have them. Most are set up so the engine can cools it, but they still get hot enough to make you not want to touch. Follow your main lines to see if there is a cooler and clean it out

    It’s so easy to pull up a throw line that there is no point to leave a climb line. That being said I leave pull lines in trees and at my house I’ve had a rope swing hanging for years. I check it out now and then. Seems fine.

    That’s so great. I know there is a high way down below that is pretty busy in the summer months. How busy is it now? I heard a little bit of clean up in one segment of the video, what was acceptable? I’m guessing a huge mess was not. Lastly, did you replay him stumbling backwards just to mess with him? Great work, great planned felling, loved the use of a spotter for the guy felling. That’s how jobs should be done

    Marbled nicely those are. Made me hungry again. The wife and I were kid free last night so I grilled up a couple of T bones. Baked some asparagus that was marinated in Italian dressing and topped with Parmesan for the last few minutes of cook time. The steaks were topped with sliced portabella mushrooms and onions that were sautéed in butter and then melted some hot pepper cheese into them to make a nice tasty sauce. Gorged ourselves and went to bed early. I don’t know what was better. My dinner or the peaceful sleep

    treebilly replied to a thread August Hunicke Videos in MBTV
    It’s a safe cut. I’m the course of the day it really might only add a few minutes for a full day of crane work. For the two cuts he made maybe a few seconds. For the little crane experience I have I’m proud. A straight through cut takes quite a bit of certainty to do it and have it work perfectly. A V cut or shelf cut or whatever they want to call it can take out for a certain margin of error. Not my cup of tea but I have done it. To get a straight through cut to work perfectly a lot of things need to be set up perfect. Liked the video. Figure out the short yet?

    Still loving mine. I did have to replace one of those stupid quarter turn lockers on the cover already though. Actually broke it the first day. No big deal. My 20” ultra lite bar is starting to get a burr on the tip which is disappointing. I could’ve pinched it a time or two though. I’ve put about five gallons of fuel through it and the air filter is still pure white. Very little dust coming out. Pulls the 28” bar and chain like a 660 does. I’m probably gonna be calling MM to see what gains he’s gotten out of them and price out another one pretty soon.

    ������ Yup, but i bet a lot of seasoned climbers wouldn’t be able to when put in the situation. Some people don’t react well under pressure especially with no training.

    I think there is a mental aspect to it as well. Even people who made it up to the rescue dummy would suddenly forget how to tie knots, work a carabiner, or whatever.

    I was just talking to the new guy at work about arial rescue the other day. I’m sure this isn’t quite like the real thing but I was surprised at the climbing comp how many people couldn’t do the rescue climb. I was one of a small handfull and that was only 25’ up (or so). Maybe I’ll start hanging deer in the trees for my guys to rescue.
