For those who charge for estimates, how does the process work?
Is the paid estimate taken off if the client goes for the work?

Just checking to see if anyone is using a battery blower on a regular basis? I've been really happy with the climbing saw and am thinking of getting a blower. I don't use backpack blowers and don't need that power.
Appreciate any insights.
Anyone have any experience using magnetic block heaters on the chippers?

I know Sena seems to rule but has anyone tried any other brands? I've seen a few very similar products on amazon with much better price points. Just checking to see if anyone has had some first hand experience with any.
Looking to see if there are any good recommendations for books or videos on aerial rescue. There aren't any training options in our area. We are planning to do some training as our crew is growing and we are a little rusty in this area. We spend the bulk of out time stuck in spurs and rigging...

Hi, looking for a chainsaw rebuilder around Calgary Alberta. Can anyone recommend someone? I'm willing to go about 5 hours from Calgary. Saw runs but is showing its age and to give it a good tune-up and once over is beyond my basic saw maintenance skills.
Just wanted to check in and see if this is acceptable option. It's super tight girth hitch. It's an light used 5/8 whoopie sling. It's either this or I attach the block with a carabiner. Or buy a smaller sling. Trying to save pennies though. This set up will be used for sub 200lbs rigging and...
I've been on the rope wrench zk1 for about 2 seasons now and enjoy it. Is there any advantage to the zk2? Thinking about ordering it but if it just looks cooler I would rather spend the money on something else.
About to replace my murphy switch on my morbark 6" chipper. This will be the second time this season. Is it common for these to crap the bed or should I be looking for another issue on the machine that would be making the switch die.
I've check all wires and the the battery is good. The...
