    Default O.C.G.D. Thread, part two

    to continue this thread, I must show the jacket that I got for my birthday a couple days ago. a joint effort from my sisters and parents, husqvarna cutters jacket with saw protection in the shoulders etc. Do I get special recognition because the only place I left a list of birthday wishes was my local arborist shop?

    other items included a clinometer & increment borer with a few other trinkets....

    Paul, you'll find those jackets a tad warm to work in to say the least !! They do another version without protection which is very good

    I know. I have a yard full of stuff I'm moving. there's a Gravely 395 with a new axle waiting to be installed, diesel tanks, Hydrualic tanks, Hydraulic pump sets, a loglift 71F with dual extensions, 3 grapples, another 10t lorry crane, winches, turntables, vast arrays of hydraulic hose and electric valve banks, track undercarriages, steel sheet and plate, a 30 inch capacity chipper with giant infeed (even with the 140hiab, I cant lift that one...)
    Phew! its amazing all the stuff you garner. I have 4 tonnes of scrap to go tommorrow...
