    Poisoned Jacaranda tree

    They are an invasive root system that cracks foundations so not out of the ordinary for neighbour disputes to escalate (or escalate before a dispute starts). Is there any evidence of copper from a copper nail?

    Chain occasionally doesn’t move

    Also the bearing of the sprocket could be worn so the chain is actually gripping the bar stock and not riding the sprocket.

    Hydraulic

    Does it have boom solenoid or manual hydraulic selector? If it’s a solenoid check it isn’t sticking by connecting voltage lead to it and listening to see if it switches or not (Also make sure it has a working ground lead first) - if stuck give it a very light tap with a hammer with some tape on...

    Vermeer BC900XL vs Manzanita

    I haven’t chipped manzanita, but I have chipping contractors that will no longer chip similar Janka Hardness wood because it beats up their Bandit 9” too much - especially if half dry.

The long bar on a larger saw is faster in the cut though -...

    Saw in my leg

    True with bigger wood, but most urban wood I find the top handle waaayyy quicker as a limbing saw, wrist rotation is way faster than the two handed grip saw as the positional requirements are way slower... Wood in tangled heaps I still prefer the top handle, but talking bigger wood, sure go for...

    Saw in my leg

    Especially if a grinder is available, but if no grinder, the chain still needs tending at some point for many businesses - not if slowing up crew onsite - but at end of day is just more work than needs to be allocated...

    Saw in my leg

    Climbers saws should remain climbers saws, however I get more annoyed when a 25” bar gets rocked - just the number of teeth that needs filing...
