    Hydration, electrolytes

    So this is probably in here already but I didn’t see it in my quick trip through the archives. I’m looking for a drink mix to hydrate and help replenish electrolytes. It’s been stupid hot here on the west coast for awhile and I feel like I can’t drink enough water. What’s a good product...

    Rigguy cable systems

    So when I typed Rigguy into the search function it took me to an old thread where Jomoco, armed with a steel cable was laying waste to all comers. It was a lively thread with cobras and bowling balls and all kinds of heated exchanges between participants but it did nothing to answer my...

    Does anyone have a husky t-540 parts saw?

    My Miller mod saw t540 got dropped during a saw switch the other day on a crane removal. It was hanging on the hook on a loop runner and while being lowered down through the canopy the saw went down one side of a limb and the hook on the other. Apparently there is just enough room between the...

    Edge saddle, side d’s adjustable?

    So I’m playimg around with this saddle, I’ve never climbed in it, just hanging from my rafter and it is very uncomfortable. Broke out my old ergovation to compare since they’re supposed to be very similar, ergo feels way better. Trying to find the difference and the big obvious difference is the...

    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.

    Designing a chip box. Input appreciated

    Looking for ideas. I work in the Sierra Nevada mountains and foothills, roads are steep, twisty and often narrow so I need to keep the length short. New box will probably be 13’. I’ve been running an 11’ arbortech with L boxes on a gmc 5500. Buying a new kenworth T370 with same or similar...

    Employee medical coverage

    How many of you small companies are providing this for your employees? By small I mean one crew, maybe 2. 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...
