    New Pfanner Gladiator Vents

    Anybody care to comment on the new Pfanner Gladiator Vent Chainsaw Pants at Treestuff? I'm in the market for new pants for my crews this summer. I was planning on the Arbortec's, as I was very disappointed in my last Pfanner's, durability wise, but these new ones have piqued my interest.

    News Coverage

    Did a crane job yesterday at our local chamber of commerce. 40-50 foot Spruce fell over in a windstorm on Friday and we were called in to remove it. The building is on the main drag so it was pretty high profile. We made the local news (which is funny because it was a very straightforward, 1...
