    How many days a week do you climb?

    This right here is why I invented the Wraptor. As we age climbing 5 days a week is too hard on the body. I usedto be a kick ass climber, now I'm 50! And can't do 5 days a week. I am now semi retired, retired into my crane and am making better money than ever before. Lots of headaches what with...

    Single axle loader truck

    Shit antique or not I like it. Probably a straight 6 with manual injector pump and a durable trans, all of which I can work on. Never in my life have I spent that much on a truck though. I got our 35t grove AT for the same amount!!

    Matt Cornell Rope Saddle

    I think the arb world really needs to wake up and realize how bad Sherrill is for our industry. At a time when a lot of the innovations within our industry come from working arbs and Sherrill screws them all over because they are not big businesses so not worthy of any respect. I wouldn't piss...

    Ice vests

    I have used them for years and really like them. Here in Virginia we often have temps over 100 degrees in summer time with high humidity. You need a system that utilizes phase change cooling. The inserts that contain the phase change material are a white solid when they come out of the cooler...

    Tree service owner operator struck by falling tree he cut in bayville NJ

    To me it seems the big problem was the curve of the log, probably hit the ground and did a crazy jump which was what hurt the dude. Kudos for you trying to help him get the job squared away, lets face it even if he is unprofessional he was still out there doing an honest job to pay the bills...

    This really sucks to read. Bottomline is we have an inherently dangerous job and random shit happens. Years ago I fell 37 feet due to a handled rope ascender cam coming off after a tiny circlip came off and the pin fell out. It wasn't backed up which was dumb but this was before I was on the...

    Crane slings

    We use the handshake or what we call the bridal with our chains on big wood day in day out and have never had an issue. I like it because its so quick to set and picks the wood with no tilt, it always worries me as I'm cabling up to get a piece off the cut and it is tilting and you are close to...
