    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...

    Possible HAVS / Hand and Finger Pain

    Have you spent time sleeping in another room and it behaving better? Do you get other pains in body - not just hands? we found out the hard way that underground streams shallow enough under the bedroom bring on a lot of these symptoms. Apparently 80 years ago builders never built on top of an...

    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. Maybe best use a rental, as can’t see a Vermeer 9” being as strong as the bandit 9” with a diesel 84hp behind...

    Saw in my leg

    Work positioning is situational in that if kneeling using a top handle the work positioning is probably better and safer than limbing with a longer bar chainsaw standing upright - although I must say I care neither which method is used. 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...

    2 in 1 Wire Core Flip Line?

    One additional tip, on Phoenix palms, cut the fronds in two places. First cut the frond off just outboard of where the spines finish and become leaflets. Second cut at the base wherever the sculpted trunk radius/bowl is. That way groundys can clean up the long fronds quickly without damage to...

    2 in 1 Wire Core Flip Line?

    The missing out is the cockroaches, mice and rat droppings etc, and the dust and microfibres choking you to death when the sawdust from the chainsaw/silky isn’t blowing in your face. And if course the spines from those species that have a target on your back - my arms and feet are filled with...

    2 in 1 Wire Core Flip Line?

    These are good, but with palms I find SRT basal tie methods better overall. Just throw a lifeline over the crown and climb up (with lanyard around trunk just in case). When up there there’s no messing around reconfiguring Tie in Points etc. as your prusik or ascender can go as high as the rope...
