It's getting towards that time of year again and preparation for the Cutters and Climbers is underway! This year's event will be on the 26th & 27th April at the East Anglian Game and Country Fair.
This year we've added and changed a few things around. There will still be the old favourites;
Balance Beam (Always a highlight!)
and for the first time we'll be running an SRT competition, including a throwline event. The events will be staged over the two days so you'll need to be there for both. Camping is free on site, with evening entertainment planned. There's always a raft of prizes for the various disciplines and the overall winners. You may even win the coveted "Most Employable Person".
Entry for the weekend's events is £20, enrolment forms are available on the Facebook page;
We're excited to introduce some old favourites that have been brought up to date - the Aquafell and Hydrofell chainsaw boots.
Featuring the high safety levels you've come to expect from Arbortec, the new designs are fully Class 2 chainsaw protection compliant, an increase over the old models - but with technological advances we've been able to reduce the number of protective layers. Both boots have a re-modelled sole for increased durability.
They also have improved waterproofing with the new 'Breathedry'® hydrophilic membrane and high airflow super comfort footbeds, so your feet will be warm and dry as well as safe!
The boots are available now from all Arbortec dealers - visit our dealer locator to find your nearest.

Both companies see this carefully thought out link-up as a major step in the growth plans each has in place.
“Since 2001 we’ve been exclusive to Timberwolf products,” said Joanna Chapman, Orange Plant’s MD, “but whilst we’ll continue to carry their machines in our fleet, and provide service support to machines we’ve sold into the market, we decided to switch to the GreenMech brand. The innovation they’ve brought to the industry will see new markets opening up for us.”
Keith Hutchinson, General Manager of Orange Plant agreed, “We spent a year evaluating their product range. What attracted us to GreenMech initially was the... [Read More]
