    Chainsaw in the running man

    So I just so happened to just get done watching The Running Man movie with Arnold. What a classic and one of the stalkers buzz saw is clearly one handing a chainsaw while driving a dirtbike. Through all the shots though I was trying to figure out what make and perhaps model saw it was. It's...

    Let the smack talk begin

    I just saw the news on ESPN that the NJ devils are in the stanley cup finals once again so I figured Mark would be on here talking smack to all other hockey fans. If they can pull off the win then Mark will be a very happy man. So let all the haters talk it up against them and let Mark pull...

    I know this was used from another thread but I was wondering if anyone up north has had success with this product and roughly what the cost per inch you're looking at is. I know treeage is the "silver bullet" but I was wondering what other options there are and came across this one. Any...

    Chainsaw file... 7/32 or 13/64?

    I was just wondering what you guys prefer on file size or what's right or what's wrong. We're talking standard run of the mill chain. 3/8 .50 chain. Full chisel that is pretty much standard on most ground saws. Which size do you use and why?

    Tree beer tonight

    Well tonight is like my Friday night as I don't have to work tomorrow so I hit the liquor store looking for something new to try and came away with crooked tree IPA out of Michigan and a Maple ale. Pretty excited. I mean what a tree hugging hippie has got to lean towards the finer things in...

    Tree flex

    I am pretty sure I remember seeing this climbing harness not allowed at a TCC in the past. I was wondering what the thoughts were and whether or not this harness is suitable for competitions as far as ratings. I know Tom loves his but was wondering on what others thoughts were. Is it one of...

    Wilderness first aid

    I know that not every situation is perfect and sometimes we don't exactly have what we need to perform proper first aid so improvision is key. Also not every situation places us near or in close proximity to emergency personel. I know it's been discussed by a few people out there and was...

    good bye fellow buzzers

    I just want to say to those of you that I have met, it's been a pleasure. I have met a lot of really cool people here and gained a lot of friendships. I have learned a lot from here, after sifting through a lot of B.S. I think at this time everyone wants to get in a peeing contest with...

    Well I know there is a rant and rave section for a reason but I didn't think this needed to go into the open forum. As I sit here typing I am waiting on the stupid fedex man to bring some gear and goodies to me so I can be on my way up north for the comp. This is why I like UPS. The UPS guys...

    Another Bridge failure

    I am surprised that no one has posted this but there has been another bridge failure on the cougar saddles. The bridge was the "safe" replacement that went into effect after the recall through anchor bridge ropeworks. Anchor bridge had no effect on this failure as it was not one of their...

    Underwear cleaner

    I was a little hesitant to post this but well this is the awakenings section and well here it is. Yesterday I was up in one of our aerial lifts when something went wrong and the upper boom came crashing down pretty quickly. Luckily I wasn't very high up and all it landed on was the chip box on...

    Asplundh worker injured in fall

    Ironically the new lady friend's ex is the guy. He was working near Dayton, Ohio and wasn't tied in twice while making his cut with the chainsaw and fell. They took him to the hospital but no major injuries. He is okay but bruised and battered a bit.
