    Cordless drill w/ GRCS??? This is the tool that has the good specs for the harken winch head on the SRW, so I wreckon it runs just as nice on the GRCS...only thing is that a drill bit to fit the winch head isn't easy to find....

    My impressions of the MS 201T

    Have recently tried the old modified 201T and the newest 201T straight from the stihl factory with factory modifications. Big difference in these two saws and the new factory machine starting with serial nr higher as 177543232 are sure the stihl saws like we know them. I reckon its Just...

    Rigging Tip Failure

    That could have been a nasty accident.... Just like Tom already said...can't believe they seriously looked at the tip before making their decision. Seems like a hurry hurry setup and they sure were lucky for causing only damage to their truck !

    Husq 390 vs 385

    Been using a 390 since a couple of months as replacement dor my MS640. It's a great saw, heaps and heaps of power and small and nice on the climbing saddle as well. Have used a 385 long time ago, so my comparison is somewhat difficult to make since there are to much saws and to much time in...

    T540 xp

    Tip for starting : don't touch the gastrottle and if you do it won't start ;-) Best thing when its cooled a bit down is to pull the choke on and of so you got it set on start gas and then without touching the gastrottle pull it and it will start nice. Same goes for the other autotune saws. All...

    Recommendations for footwear?

    Merrell for light pruning and fast climbing jobs. La sportiva for the normal jobs and also very good on spurs. The chainsaw protective boots from Haix are great for all day long spur work. All shoes with Gore tex !

    Husqvarna T536 Li XP tophandle chainsaw

    The price seems to be a hard headed item for arborist.... I know lots of climbers that don't want to invest in a simple pantin, but drive a new business car every tree years and complain about elbow problems from working the ropes...... I know a lot of people investing in al sorts of...

    best lovering device

    Winch is from harken, and indeed you can not take of the winch. When catching pretty heavy loads zi wouldn't want to do that on the winch head. It has a load capacity and if you know how the intern mechanics work you better take good care of it and try to avoid heavy droploads ;-) Working two...
