    Arborfest west 2019

    Who’s going? We really need to come up with a way to identify tree buzzers. I’m no social butterfly in fact most of the time I’m downright antisocial, but I’d like to at least meet some of you folks, put a face with a name. Arm bands made from flagging tape?

    Aerial rescue dummy

    Where can I get one? Looked in the archives and saw a couple good ideas for substitutes like a heavy tire or coveralls filled with coils of ropes but I like the idea of training with something that looks and behaves somewhat like a human.

    Employee medical coverage

I’m in California, I’ve been looking into it and it appears a ballpark figure for one 26 year old employee is around $400 per month. I am required to pay at least $100 of that but have been...

    Tiny bars on big powerheads. Why?

    so I’m curious why people do this. Someone on here mentioned using a 661 with a 20” bar to chunk down a tree. That just boggles my mind as to why someone would want that big of a saw to do something that small. I have seen it done in several videos and it seems to me to be more of an east coast...

    '06 gmc c5500 dying

    I've got a c5500 with a duramax, if I'm on a side hill with the drivers side up the alarm sounds and then about 30 seconds later engine dies. It will start after a minute or so and drive until it either dies again or I get level. And now it's doing it on the highway when I'm pulling uphill...

    Bandit 200xp vs 250xp

    I'm likely going to purchase one of these, would like some input from people that have ran both. How are they different? I see the 250 weighs a thousand pounds more and has a little more horsepower, what else?

    Transporter on ergovation

    anybody using the rock exotica transporter on their ergovation saddle? If so, how did you get it to fit? Grind the sides of the transporter down? It's too wide to fit through the caritool slot on my saddle. Am I missing something here?

    Still ms 150 mods

    Ok so I've modified a couple ms 150's, I opened up the intake and exhaust and the saws run great! Far better than stock. Then I ran into problems with the saws being unable to keep up with the chips they are producing. Example: say I'm taking down a conifer, loving the lightweight 150, get to...
