    T536LiXP Battery Problem

    Hi Bill, I've been running the Bli200 batteries in it with no problem, about 5 months now. Average use maybe 2x a week, but working it pretty good on those days.

    T536LiXP Battery Problem

    I love the 536li too, even for the bigger stuff. But i thought husky's site said no problems to run in rain, just don't be crazy about it?

    Husky 536li Scabbard for climbing?

    Yes that sort of idea, hope to find time to experiment with a scabbard 'tip tied' horizontally at my lower back, we'll see how easily drawing & sheathing the saw can be done!

    T536LiXP Battery Problem

    I'm feeling the same balance issue with 12" bar - Too much wrist effort just to keep saw level in the cut. I've seen videos recommending swapping in a Stihl bar & chain (and compatible sprocket) for best cutting speed. I'm tempted by that and going to 14" at same time. But as mentioned I already...

    T536LiXP Battery Problem

    I've been impressed with mine too, but may be guilty of on putting it through 12" oak more than Husky intended :tarjetaroja: I'm no mechanic, so wondering if just motor, or which components I'm overtaxing doing that? I do keep it very sharp.

    Husky 536li Scabbard for climbing?

    Gotcha thanks, the saw dangling and constantly snagging in tight canopies drives me nuts. I've been scheming on how one could mount a scabbard horizontal-ish along the back of saddle, along with a saw mount point at right lower back/pelvis to keep it up and outta the way all the time. The trick...

    Husky 536li Scabbard for climbing?

    It looks more practical than my idea of trying to put grommets in somewhere. How do you have the saw attached to saddle so that Scabbard stays on? And where do you clip the accessory cord to?

    Husky 536li Scabbard for climbing?

    I'm loving this little battery saw, but I want to try keeping a scabbard on while climbing to keep chain from tangling on branches and nicking my ropes/saddle. I see Stihl makes a nice arborist scabbard designed to click into place, but I'm guessing that won't work on Husky saw? Anyone tried...

    Relatively small but dumb mistake(s)

    Yes, sitting on the ground I couldn't believe I didn't get a leg or two caught and broken... and the saw stayed braked away from me. Thanks for replies!

    Relatively small but dumb mistake(s)

    I've been getting a little lazy/comfortable with orchard ladder's convenience, and got a kick in the butt reminder of the consequences today. An oak had just one horizontal limb at 12' high to be removed, only 5-1/2" diameter but a good 35' long. Foolishly duped by the 'simplicity' I didn't...

    Workshop worth attending/$50? "Using 2017 ANSI z133" w/ Tim Walsh

    Tim didn't get the best weather to work with - steady rain so none of the more interesting hands on stuff. Good effort to engage the audience nonetheless. I didn't pick up a ton a new stuff, but I suppose that's another testament to John of St. Vrain ArborCare and his excellent MO of teaching...

    Great, I'll be there. Anyone else going to Providence tomorrow, or the weekend?

    Workshop worth attending/$50? "Using 2017 ANSI z133" w/ Tim Walsh

    I'm thinking of doing this tomorrow, but I'm new with current company so it's my own time/coin. Any thoughts on how valuable this particular workshop/presenter could be (for your average intermediate climber)? Link: https://www.itcc-isa.com/Portals/0/Docs/2018-SCA-NATCC.pdf

    Any SRT canopy anchor that's rescue "retrievable/release-able"?

    New2Trees that sounds like an excellent system! Do you have a photo you could share? What were the major drawbacks of that setup?

    Thanks Ghostice! So many good and detailed replies here it's taking me awhile to get through them :)
