    I hit up a local demo days today and road a couple of new yamahas. A super tenere and a wr250r. Just stumbled across it at a local dealer and that's what they had available. Was cool to try out a couple of different bikes.

    Employees will always resist doing tasks that seem menial. Espescially if they believe they are doing it for their boss as well. Doesn't matter if they're getting paid or not. Packing up the cool packs, cleaning them or whatever and putting them in the deep freeze at the end of the day while the 'boss' does something more administrative or important will draw ire on a small crew. Maybe alternate? Or better yet as the boss, do it for the employee, then they will appreciate it. Like they're being looked out for. You can't expect employees to have an overly vested (see what I did there? Lol) interest in the workplace equipment or ppe. It's not there's and the profit it generates isn't either. You can hope they will. You can tell them too. But they never will. Not like the owner. I never bucked up for a cool vest, just suffered and drank lots of water. Here it gets stupid hot too 40c, dry heat though. I'd make use of a garden hose often. Get a good rinse/soak of the head.

    For biking it's somehow very intuitive. You never hear breathing or any sort of engine or ambient noise from the other person/bike. None of that activates the mic. By live all the time I don't mean you constantly 'hear' the other person. I mean all they have to do is talk and your music lessens in volume and the conversation is crystal clear. Somehow they've got it sorted pretty well for voice recognition as my bike has had a obnoxiously loud exhaust on it until yesterday(I swapped it out to a tamer one) and no issues with noise. But. I don't know how that would work/transfer to treework and the noises dealt with there?

    After using the cardo packtalks for a bit here. I don't think they need a thread of their own. I wouldn't recommend them for,treework over a traditional Bluetooth comm unit like a sena smh10r or the such. The digital mesh which is a great feature for biking I think would grow old for treework. The mics are live all the time, your music streams and the units automatically lower the music volume when talking occurs. The noise cancelling is amazing, comms are crystal clear, my wife and I are each listening to different streaming music from our phones. Voice commands work well. So it's virtually a handsfree helmet comm system. Super handy for riding. But every mutter, curse,grunt or groan of a tree person would potentially be activating the comms. I could see that being very frustrating on a tree crew. The ability to shut the comms off entirely withnthe Bluetooth systems is nice in that setting. The packtalk also has a phone app which is handy for setup as all volumes and mic sensitivity and features are easily adjusted through it without having to memorize a new language of button combinations. The digital mesh tech and enhanced voice command/recognition makes for a much more costly unit over a traditional Bluetooth comm system. Also the antennae and 'roller' for volume adjustment(as well as other things) I could also see being problematic for tree work. It should be noted that the packtalk can be used as a Bluetooth comm system as well but that negates the advantages of the digital mesh which is a big part of the increased cost. Plenty of vids out there on the system if you don't want to take my word for it. Cardo packtalk.

    Good luck on all your tests Kyle. I'm with Mick. I love my lawn. Mines left in quite a natural state for the most part as far as weeds and whatnot. A 'file' photo of my place. But I've got endless lawn, pasture, and field. Before anyone asks, my house is like 60 years old. :P

    If you research it. Bluetooth tech is yesterday's news for comms. Digital mesh is the future. Huge advantages for biking as far as range and pairing, clarity, reliability. As well as leaving the range and dropping connection and re pairing. For biking Bluetooth is dead. But for treework I don't see the huge advantages of dmc over Bluetooth to justify the increased cost. All of the high end bike comms now employ dmc, sena too. Although they are being blasted for being late to the game and still 'buggy'.

    I will start a topic when I've had some use on them. So far so good. But I'm questioning their suitability for treework due to the 'antenna' they have. Also the dmc mode which is the big advantage has live mics all the time. Might be annoying for treework. But they work flawlessly IMe in the first week for streetbiking. You only pair to a 'pack' once and that's it. Seamless disconnect and reconnect when turned on or in and out of range forever more. Never re pair again.

    This little 'trick' is what inspired me to buy a pilot bearing puller. A slide hammer made specifically for pulling pilot bearings. It is a good tip, but it needs to be a tight fit and packed full of grease, otherwise all you have is a mess. Lol.

    Maybe if you could freeze time. But in real time you could never view all of the content. This is a copy/paste seven years old. : The search giant's figures show that one hour of video is now being uploaded to YouTube every second. That upload rate — equivalent to 60 hours of video per minute — represents an astonishing tenfold increase from its 2007 rate. About 30 percent of that growth has come in the last eight months, says Google.
