Tip Of The Day

Recommended Posts

first tip


if you are lucky enough find a good local saw shop and saw doctor, use him for your new saws, chains, bars etc as well as repairs, I have built up a great relationship with my local saw shop..


I roll up at 4.30 with brocken saw , if it can be fixed I generally work out in around half an hour, with a running saw! I shop around when buying new saws, blowers etc, but I ALWAYS give my saw guy the chance to match, in some cases I accept he can't beat internet prices and I pay slightly over the top, that way we both win, I get the service he gets a loyal customer...



A good local saw shop and saw doc is essential for a small arb firm..

I have a couple of ropes, lanyards, and prussik's that I keep in a rope bag.......soley for conifers.


That way I dont end up with sap on all my ropes, lanyards and prussik's........sweet:proud:

You start the day with 10 fingers 10 toes make sure you end the day with them.


There is no substitute for saftey always think is your life worth the price of a job.


Always check your climbing gear every single use this is a must.


Make sure every saftey feature on your saw is working dont use broken saws.


If it feels unsafe then it is avoid any situation which your not comfortable in.
