    Pine Allergy?

    Thanks guys, Jmcscrap, I think this is it, I found some info on it and the splotchy look on this guys arm looked similar to my shin. cerviarborist, pretty sure its the pine itself. I have taken down a few Oaks and a Locust and never had an issue.

    Pine Allergy?

    Not sure how you hold the saw.....never really though that through.

    Pine Allergy?

    Of course there is Rico, you put your fingers in your ears and squint.....same thing you do at the track when a fuel car makes a pass.

    Pine Allergy?

    Did not take it as a flame, just a safety concern....thanks. I do wear ear and eye protection. Still curious on the allergy deal though.

    Pine Allergy?

    On a serious note: I probably will at least buy some chaps. I know saying I have cut trees for 45 yrs and not needed them is about as dumb as the guy who drinks and drives and makes the same excuse.

    Pine Allergy?

    Hello all, 62 yr guy who does occasional tree work (not a professional) Last year I took down a large dead pine tree for my next door neighbor. It was an easy job just cut up into short rounds and stack behind my house. When I did the job it was summer and hot and I was wearing shorts. After...

    Addressing hitch binding with the Rope Wrench on descent

    I am no doubt the least experienced guy on this board, but I am about 230 with gear and I have found good success with a 28" 10mm cord. For me the small stuff would jam up big time.

    Addressing hitch binding with the Rope Wrench on descent

    My wrench is red, my rope is blue, and my michocan is whitish so I am claiming patriotism as the reason I did not go all black on the gear.

    Rope Wrench - Hitch/Rope compendium.

    Here's a quick vid. In my brief experience I have liked the VT, easy glide up and good grip but the setback IME seems to be greater than some others.

    Ht 131 Back fire broblem?

    Its harder to fire a plug gap under load than free revving. Take out the plug and close the gap by about 10 thousandths and see if this clears it up. If it does then its showing that something in the ignition system is weak...often a coil assembly is the culprit. PS not a saw mechanic, so I...

    Single rope or double rope ascension?

    Hey just another newbie here (and an old one) but let me share my experience, not knowledge. If you are young, on a tight budget and want to just get your feet wet then DDRT may be the way to go. As said SRT is much quicker and easier, so if your 62 like me or not in great shape SRT is really...
