    Multi-Stemmed Red Maples ... Safe to prune smaller stem?

    Hi guys, So got a good look at these today (which are all over the place). They are multi stemmed red maples. I want to remove two stems (4" & 6" stems) as they are ugly and not doing much for the bunch as a whole. One of them looks like it may even have die back up top... I am probably over...

    Red Pine - What is going on?

    Hello Everyone, Have a customer who has some red pines growing on the property. Two of them got taken out a couple weeks ago because thery were 100% dead, no needles at all and insect damage to trunks. Pictured is one that has been brown since the beginning of Spring but I am not sure how it...

    I called Morbark and they gave me a manual as close as they could to my model year but there are no PSI specs on oil pressure. I will change out fluid, might as well right? No dipstick so I will just jimmy something up to check it. Thanks for the reply. Does anyone else know what oil...

    Hey guys, just an update. So I got everything running and put some wood through it. It chips great. Here is a video on how to engage clutch that I followed in case anyone is wondering / looking. Does anyone know what kind of hydraulic fluid these take? It looks like my tank is only 1/4 full...

    It is a twin disc cluth not an auto clutch. So engage it at idle rpm’s? Slowly until things start turning and then bump it in?

    Alright guys. My apologies before hand. I did not even think to see if the safety button on the rear of the chipper was pushed in or not. I finally got a chance to start her up and figured I would check that before anything else. That was the issue. Fired right up and let it run for a bit...

    This job was in a new sub division that was recently cleared so what was left of the pines - they had high crowns and small diameter limbs up top as they were reaching for sunlight trying to battle all of the competition. Even with a TIP I would not have put any confidence or stock in to it...

    I am really liking the idea of NailerB and the second flip line tied in to the bridge in the Reg Coates video. I think I will try both and see how they feel. If I were able I would have a high TIP, three lanyards, choker and trampoline beneath me. I just do not like climbing on spikes but I am...

    The round knob above the key does absolutely nothing. If you look at the wiring behind it there is nothing going to / from it. I am not sure why it is there... Must of been something they used back in the day and no use for it now?

    Hello All, I am having trouble climbing pines / spruce / etc. with spikes and feeling confident doing it. I was climbing a pine on lanyard / spurs the other day and did not feel comfortable at all. Do you guys usually get a TIP going when performing pine removals? What is the best way to go...

    I will follow ground from battery and see if anything is corroded. Thank you all for the help! MA Arborist, Where are you located in Mass? I am from Mass originally.

    Sounds good. I will give it a go and see what happens. I think it is a wiring issue because I would think I would hear a click or gauges moving etc. when I turn key but I am getting absolutely nothing.
