    Minimum eye-size for 3/4 TEC slings?

    TOTALLY OFF-TOPIC but.... IMO it's not worth making a thread but since google will find this... Mercury was spliceable, it can be spliced with an adapted Teufelberger SPlife 'Drenaline' instructional, I used their video + written instructions and did 3 before I got fed-up with it and decided...

    Minimum eye-size for 3/4 TEC slings?

    So I've made some splices using Samson's incredible tutorials[link to this specific one, though they're well-stocked!] and, while I know that this is meant for hitch-cord eye&eyes (and I started using these instructions making Ice Tail hitches, best hitch-cordage I've found yet :D ), but I'd had...

    Snapped Pole-saw....plz tell me there's ANY hope!! (Echo PPT-266)

    It's fixed & has been solid since then but will check your posts to find it as I've been meaning to open it up & re-do it (I used a 2.5" wide galvanized pipe, cut in half length-wise, as an "outside brace" over my new/OEM coupler-bracket, as the base of my fiberglass pole just sucked....have...

    Anyone know of *nylon*(or mixed fiber I guess) cordage with the *feel*/lay/appearance of Tenex TEC?

    I understand the advantages poly offers for ropes but prefer nylon's shock-capacity, Tenex TEC is outstanding stuff of course and I love it for basically all anchoring-slings and log-wrapping-slings however I wish it were nylon / had a good shock-capacity, would much prefer a poly/nylon mix or a...

    It's mid-April and I'm uncertain whether to find a crew to climb for this summer or go-it alone, need advice/counsel!

    OMG this is so true, have only recently begun noticing this but some guys are focusing on palms, some guys have a bucket and only want to use that....am still having a tough time breaking-down which skill-sets are the best, I think using "best" is flawed actually since, if I prefer climbing but...

    It's mid-April and I'm uncertain whether to find a crew to climb for this summer or go-it alone, need advice/counsel!

    What state are you in? Do you (or *anyone*, of course!) happen to know if there's anywhere that's indexed arborist/tree-surgery pricing by-state or by-region (or even by type-of-work)? Would LOVE seeing whatever industry-data is available but uncertain where to even begin looking (hmmm should...

    It's mid-April and I'm uncertain whether to find a crew to climb for this summer or go-it alone, need advice/counsel!

    This has plagued me for over 5yrs as a general-services contractor and is so much harder now that I'm doing tree stuff, for instance now that I have a polesaw I'm offering certain clients a polesaw-hour-fee so I can just go do an hour on their palms (am embarrassed to say how low, again I'm...

    [ @*useless info* -- thank you VERY much, that'll eat my spare-time this wkend I am sure hehe will be able to appropriately reply once I've been able to re-read & digest all of that :D You don't happen to post on BonsaiNut do you? If not, there is a 'mental doppleganger' of you only in-context...

    Q('s...) on face-shields for my 3M 'ground' helmets (+/- any that are compatible with "Pro-Tec"[/type] climb-helmets, too)

    welding supply huh? Guess I thought clear visors (that'd mount right onto a 3M) were a standard option in arborist-PPE...will google for welding stores, will be nice to have someone show it all to me in-person, thanks :)

    Q('s...) on face-shields for my 3M 'ground' helmets (+/- any that are compatible with "Pro-Tec"[/type] climb-helmets, too)

    tl;dr: Mrea bnow requires face masking to get milk/go anywhere public. Have realized that a 3m full-face shield counts, sadly no brick&mortars have them....have wanted one or two for ages though, and figure now's the time but gonna have to go online to get it and I don't wanna waste time/money...

    Snapped Pole-saw....plz tell me there's ANY hope!! (Echo PPT-266)

    Gonna go look at those models but based on context I'm assuming they're petrol and the Husqvrn is not? If so, *any* and all comparisons/etc you could give would be great, for instance I see climbing-saws as something where "optimal" is (at least) two saws IE your primary saw(mid-20cc's...

    Snapped Pole-saw....plz tell me there's ANY hope!! (Echo PPT-266)

    [plz don't be upset if this "should be obvious", I understand safety- being what it is- probably forbids this @ face-value but worth asking since not positive!] Can I cut w/ this thing while aloft? Granted, this particular unit would blow for @height use but Harbor Freight advertises a <9lbs...

    Snapped Pole-saw....plz tell me there's ANY hope!! (Echo PPT-266)

    ROFL @dickcheese!! FWIW I didn't do those repairs, I am all for over-board projects but glassing inside the cuff would obviously not fix that shaft!! Does your pole's powerhead have a casing that's part-metal? The lower/front powerhead shell is metal and it gets CRAZY hot after just a few...

    Echo 355t light bar

    I figured it was smarter to bump this (and keep on-topic) than starting a new, similar thread of "What are the most-aggressive, lightest 16"B&C's I can put on my 355t?" I see a lot of posts saying/implying Echo has weird mounts...this isn't the case, when I got my 355t w/ a 14" OEM setup I...

    Echo vs Stihl

    How many cc's for your big saw? Yeah I'm definitely not from one of those places, my 12" does the lion's-share of my work, but most of my saws are climb saws / only have one solid ground-saw the modded PP4218 42cc/18", it is great I love it for what it is (and would happily put a 20" on it --...
